No thanks, Kaze. I can't imagine you'd want me and a lot of my friends who are over 40 to listen. You've told us, in so many words, that we aren't relvant, thank you very much.

Kacy, I never said 40, I said 60 since you wish to throw an actual number out there. Stop being so sensitive. There are members of jxnpro that are in their 40's. I'm closer to 40 than I am to 25-30 so that "40" is a number YOU threw out. Jeez If you wish to NOT listen then cool but your reason...please. We have welcomed and even encouraged folks of ALL to join the Jackson Progressives as long as they had a passion for moving this city foward. Your premise that I or anyone else is declaring those over 60 useless or senile is RIDICULOUS. However, at this time we need them to be wise enough to know its time to pass the baton. Whether it be politics, sports, or RADIO. Its time for youngblood in this city.

I didn't get to listen to much of the show yesterday, but I like what I was able to hear. I'll try to tune in next Sunday, though I'll be in Memphis and I don't know how well the Oxford MPB station picks up in Memphis.

Caught 40 minutes of it on Sunday. GREAT SHOW. When i turned it on it was in the midst of a pretty right wing statement and i thought, "This is like listening to freakin 1180 AM" but then your guest, Robert, came on and was really a strong Progressive voice who was not afraid to push a bit when he thought he was right. i almost called in a number of times but was really enthralled with hearing all the different viewpoints who called in. You've got a real representative show on your hands Kaze, good start! Please keep up your efforts for our city. peace.

thanks Daniel. Glad you enjoyed. and my goal is to make sure all sides and viewpoints are represented. I want to be a moderator of sorts and never overly push my views(although I will have MANY lol) on folks a'la Rush or Hannity or even Olberman
