Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Last wed night we broadcast my first radio program for our new fledgling radio network Netroots Radio from our flagship station Blue Skies Radio.

We are a new progressive online radio station that has been formed by members of the DKos community, we seek listeners and callers and new show hosts.

Tonight I offer a link to our radio station podcasts, including our interview with Crashing Vor.

Here's a link to the podcast of our interview with Crashing Vor
In this interview Justice Putnam and I discuss a range of topics with Crashing Vor, including:

His music, including his new album Nichevo
New Orleans & Music
Gulf Oil Spill
Katrina
Louisiana Politics, historical and current
Select national political issues
Other stuff that just came up

The interview is 2 hours and 10 minutes long. I hope folks will take a listen.

IMO, C. Vor is a fascinating guy who really understands the Mississippi delta region, most things music, and clearly has a big picture understanding of the issues facing our nation.

If it's something worth discussing on Daily Kos, it is probably also worth discussing in live talk radio. Contact us through NetRoots Radio:Blue Skies if you have good ideas for a show of your own, interviews, possible show topics, and listen to our scheduled shows/podcasts. We are looking for informed progressive/populist viewpoints on all the major topics and from all the sub-communities within Daily Kos.

I hope you enjoy this interview.

Thank Vor!
