Radio, Dec. 17: Obama, Osama, Putin

Join us on radio every Sunday, 5-8pm on 710 KNUS, Denverand now also on 1460 KZNT, Colorado Springs To listen online from anywhere, click --------------------------------------------------------------------- How does Barack Obama, the black liberal senator who's fluttering hearts for 2008, stack up with black conservative author and columnist Joseph C. Phillips?

What must Bush and his generals do to snatch victory from defeat in Iraq, according to the new book by combat veteran Major Eric Egland?

Why do Putin and his poison endanger not just Russian democracy but international peace, as former congressman Bob Schaffer sees it?

Those are some of the high-voltage conversations I'll have with guests and listeners on this Sunday's edition of "Backbone Radio" with John Andrews. I hope you'll join us.

** Rick Rank of Compa Food Ministry and Brad Meuli of the Denver Rescue Mission will also be along with a report on what their groups (and so many other charities) are doing for the less fortunate this Christmas.

** And I'll talk with Denver-based character educator E.C. Gaffney about his new book and related seminars on how to raise self-controlled kids... a program being used by local prosecutors to help turn around juvenile offenders.

Our show is the most principled, most patriotic, most faith-based, most Colorado-proud spot on your weekend radio dial. I'd be honored to have you as a listener. The chance to exchange ideas with fellow Americans like you is a source of needed hope right now.
