Radio, Jan. 8: Correcting the slant

Join us on radio every Sunday, 5-8pm on 710 KNUS, DenverTo listen online from anywhere, click ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Doug Gresham, CS Lewis's stepson, talks with me about Narnia. See below ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jared Polis and Michael Bennet, elusive educrats, still haven't surfaced. Details here. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Republicans feuding in Colorado? Republicans corrupt in Washington? Conservatives to blame, wherever you look? None of these story lines is accurate, but oh, what fun the mainstream media are having with them so far in 2006.

Your honest, principled corrective to all this slanted stuff is "Backbone Radio with John Andrews." We're back to live programming this Sunday, January 8, after a couple weeks of recorded classics for the holidays -- and we want you in the conversation. Get your two cents in by phone at 303 696 1971 or by email to

I invite you to listen in, and chime in, Sunday between 5:00 and 8:00 pm -- on the air at 710 KNUS in Denver or on the Web at, worldwide. Matt Dunn and Beth Skinner will be alongside helping me (if you can call it that), and we have a show you won't want to miss.

** What issues will face the Colorado Senate when legislators reconvene next week? We'll ask Sen. Tom Wiens (R-Castle Rock), who will be there -- even if Anderson and Larson won't.

** How do the big daily papers dig out their legislative and political coverage? Lynn Bartels of the Rocky and Chris Frates of the Post will answer MY questions for a change.

** Where is the immigration debate headed now, with Congress finally responding and Colorado proposals at the boil? Rosemary Jenks of Numbers USA will join me.

** Why the surprise at DC scandals, with temptation oozing from every pore of an overgrown federal government? I'll ask Chris Edwards, author of a Cato Institute book on the problem.

ALL THIS PLUS DOUGLAS GRESHAM... I caught up with CS Lewis's stepson over in Britain by cell phone the other day. The Jan. 8 show features our taped interview about the Narnia film Gresham helped produce, his new magazine, and the Lewis biography, "Jack's Life," he's just written.

So if you're sick of the slant, let us give it to you straight. Join us for another great Sunday evening of fact, opinion, and insight. It's all yours on Backbone Radio, the most principled, most patriotic, most faith-based, most Colorado-proud spot on the dial.

Yours for self-government, JOHN ANDREWS
