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.
