Please join Krista Kafer, as she hosts this week's Backbone Radio. We have a full lineup of great guests and hot topics.

We'll talk with Colorado State Senator Greg Brophy about what's in store this month in the General Assembly.

Stuart Butler, director of the Center for Policy Innovation at the Heritage Foundation, will talk with us about the looming health care crisis under Obamacare and real free market solutions.

State Representative Laura Bradford and State Senator Gail Schwartz will tell us about their bills (House Bill 1027 and Senate Bill 48), which would allow home based bakers to sell their delicious wares. You can catch up on this tasty topic by reading my guest commentary on the subject "Giving rise to home-based bakeries" in Monday's Denver Post.

We'll also take a short time out to hear from the owner one of my favorite home grown small businesses Banjo Billy's Bus Tours, John Georgis.

In between we'll find some time to talk highlights of last week and predictions for the new week.

Please join me by listening to (and calling in to) this week's Backbone Radio program from 5 PM to 8 PM on 710 AM KNUS in Denver and 1460 AM KZNT in Colorado Springs.

Backbone Radio, January 29, 2011: Changing of the Guard

It is with a combination of sadness, happiness, and pride, that I tell you that the January 29, 2011 edition of Backbone Radio will be my last as its "permanent" host.

I'll be moving on to other radio endeavors, which you can read about on my web site HERE. I look back with pride on the last two years of hosting Backbone Radio, believing that I'm leaving it in at least as strong a position as it was in when John Andrews entrusted it to me almost exactly two years ago.

But as the saying says, the show must go on. And so it will, with Jimmy Sengenberger taking over as the primary interim host of Backbone Radio while management decides who will permanently fill the captain's chair.

In the meantime, we'll have a great show for you this Sunday.

During the 5 PM hour, we'll talk with Professor of Economics Michael Stroup about economic freedom, at every level from international to national to right here in Colorado.

And during the 6 PM hour, we'll talk with State Senator Greg Brophy about legislation he'll be putting forward to repeal Colorado's civil libel law. Did you know that in circumstances in Colorado, you can say something about a person and be charged with a crime...even if what you say is true?

During the 7 PM hour, my last hour hosting Backbone Radio, we'll talk some presidential politics as we'll be less than 48 hours from the very important Florida Republican primary election.

Please join me by listening to (and calling in to) this week’s Backbone Radio program from 5 PM to 8 PM on 710 AM KNUS in Denver and 1460 AM KZNT in Colorado Springs.

Backbone Radio, January 22, 2011: Jimmy Sengenberger guest-hosts

From Jimmy Sengenberger:

As the Giants whip the 49'ers a good one, join Jimmy Sengenberger as he returns to News/Talk 710 KNUS's "Backbone Radio!"

(Ross thinks the 49'ers will win...)

FIRST, the presidential candidates are heading into full swing, and the South Carolina Primary will be behind us. What do the results mean ...for the nomination fight? In addition, with Santorum making strides and Gingrich and Romney hitting social issue difficulties, how are social issues playing in this year's primaries - and how should the candidates handle them?

We'll find out the answers with KEVIN MILLER, author of "Freedom Nationally, Virtue Locally, or Socialism."

THEN, CU-Boulder's Board of Regents intend on voting for a 16% increase in tuition - after a 9% increase last year. Why is this being considered, what is the likelihood of passage, and what will this mean for students and the university? We'll get differing views from two Regents, Republican JIM GEDDES (CD-6) and Democrat JOE NEGUSE (CD-2), on this and other related higher-ed topics.

AND we'll converse with the Cato Institute's Jim Harper, director of information policy studies, to discuss the Stop Online Piracy Act, which has been stalled in Congress due to an unusually intense public outcry throughout the internet. How exactly will SOPA threaten America - and what can we do to stop it?

PLUS, on Friday a protest put on by Ken Gordon's radical "Clean Slate Now" took place - perpetuating the false idea that the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision was a blow to democracy. Jimmy will counter these ridiculous claims and explain why Citizens United was rightly decided.

Please join me by listening to (and calling in to) this week’s Backbone Radio program from 5 PM to 8 PM on 710 AM KNUS in Denver and 1460 AM KZNT in Colorado Springs.

Backbone Radio, January 8, 2011: Victor Davis Hanson

Audio archives for this show:

Segment 1 - Intro; Iowa Caucus results; previewing New Hampshire; how much should government workers be paid?
Segment 2 - More politics; Canon law, marriage,
Segment 3 - Burt and Anita Folsum discuss their new book, FDR Goes to War
Segment 4 - More with Burt and Anita Folsum on FDR, WWII
Segment 5 - Victor Davis Hanson
Segment 6 - Tony Blankley, RIP; Israel; more politics

Welcome to the first edition of Backbone Radio for the year 2012, and what a show it's going to be, including my good friend Fred (last name redacted to protect the innocent) who will join me in studio.

During the 5 PM hour, we'll talk about the Iowa Caucus results and what, if anything, they portend for next week's New Hampshire Primary and the very important January 21st South Carolina primary.

During the 6 PM hour, we'll be joined by Burt and Anita Folsom of Hillsdale College to talk about their new book, FDR Goes to War, with a particular focus on what lessons from those years of depression and war we should be considering when looking at today's economic and international environment. President Obama routinely makes many of the same mistakes FDR did while liberals give FDR's actions both during and before the war credit which they are not due.

And during the 7 PM hour, we have our latest Big Interview as we talk with Victor Davis Hanson. Dr. Hanson is one of the great historians and thinkers in America today and it will be our privilege to discuss with him, among other things, two of his recent articles. First, a piece entitled "When the Legend Becomes Fact, Print the Legend" which discusses how little we actually know about President Obama. And second, an article entitled "Obama Derangement Syndrome?" in which Dr. Hanson asks and answers the question "When does the legitimate 'I oppose Obama' descend into the illegitimate 'I hate Obama'?"

Please join me by listening to (and calling in to) this week’s Backbone Radio program from 5 PM to 8 PM on 710 AM KNUS in Denver and 1460 AM KZNT in Colorado Springs.
