From Ross Kaminsky:

In our first hour of this week’s edition of Backbone Radio, we’ll first talk about news of the week, including Barack Obama's immigration speech in El Paso and the ongoing debate over whether or not the government should release photos of a dead Osama bin Laden.

We'll also talk with State Senator Greg Brophy about the just-finished legislative session and the Democrat shenanigans regarding redistricting. You'd think that even Governor Hickenlooper would be ashamed by the behavior of his party.

In our second hour, we have The Big Interview: nearly the full hour will be my interview of Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI), Chairman of the House Budget Committee. 'nuf won't want to miss it.

And in our third hour, we'll be joined by Douglas Fain, author of The Phantom's Song, a fascinating novel (though with plenty of real-life experience informing the characters and the plot) about the Vietnam War -- and not just from an American perspective. I think you'll find it most interesting, not least because the author himself flew more than 200 combat missions during the war.

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.

If you’re not in range of the radio waves, you should be able to listen to the show online by clicking HERE.

I hope you’ll actively participate in the conversation with me: Call the studio at 303 696 1971.
