  1. Mike Licht Says:

    UPDATE: Great first show, with guest commentator Eugene Dewitt Kinlow of DC Vote. and the revelation that guest Dr. Eurmon Hervey, Jr. is leaving his post as CEO/Executive Director of the nascent Community College of UDC for the administration of historic Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, Florida.

    Guests Peter Nicholls and Phil Pannell (the Odd Couple) were, as usual, outrageous and entertaining. Even better, The program is followed by Scooter Magruder’s Blues show. Make this a regular radio habit on Tuesdays.
