Radio, Dec. 4: Gov. Owens looks ahead

Join us on radio every Sunday, 5-8pm on 710 KNUS, DenverTo listen online from anywhere, click ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Scroll down to comment section for items cited on the air during this show... a father's letter to Congresswoman DeGette... and Sen. Joe Lieberman's courageous article on Iraq ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Gov. Bill Owens is more likely to quote Dodger batting averages than poetry. But he doubtless recognizes the Robert Frost line, "I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference." His surprising, less-traveled road to grow the budget and trim TABOR made a big difference this year in both victory at the ballot box and backlash from conservatives, nationally as well as here in Colorado. Where does the road lead now for Bill Owens, a month from his final legislative session (facing emboldened Democrats in both houses) and 11 months from the election of his successor? We'll talk about it when he joins me in studio on Backbone Radio between 5 and 6pm this Sunday, Dec. 4.

Our show airs every Sunday from 5-8pm. It's the most principled, most patriotic, most faith-based, most Colorado-proud spot on your weekend radio dial, now in our 2nd year on the air. Conservatives in Colorado and across the country are finding there's no better place on the first day of the week to catch up on issues and share points of view.

My other guests on Dec. 4 will include national security hawk Frank Gaffney to discuss his new book "War Footing"... CU Regent Tom Lucero with a report from liberal Boulder... and former Sam Alito law clerk Fred Beckner with perspective on the Supreme Court battle.

And I'll box a few rounds with lefty Denver Post columnist Jim Spencer, who oddly thought the best thing about our President's recent Colorado visit was an anti-Bush teacher malpracticing upon the impressionable teens in his care.

Talk radio matters a lot to everyone who believes in America without apologies, America as it was meant to be. Without it, Bush wouldn't even BE president. Without it we'll not summon the backbone to prevail in Iraq or rein in the runaway courts.

So have I convinced you to join me, Owens, Spencer, and the gang on the air this weekend? Sure hope so!

Yours for self-government, JOHN ANDREWS
