    OpenSource Radio

    So Open Source Radio might be doing an hour on the unreleased Abu Ghraib photos and videos on Wednesday, July 26, 2005 from 7-8pm EDT. BTW, the broadcast is webcast at the same time. I talked briefly with one of their associates about possibly speaking on the show. Unfortunately I have little more than a layperson's knowledge of the case. Of course, as a blogger, I've got opinions, lots of opinions. A telling point about my knowledge was when I was asked if I had been following the subject for a long time or whether it was just the "blogging subject of the week." Alas, it was the latter. But I'm going to see if I can bone up a little. I doubt they'll use me but I might call in and see if I have anything intelligent to contribute.

    They were put in touch with me because the Progressive Blogger Union had just done this subject this week. To see other PBU members' writing on the subject, go to the Flickr group of PBU.

    Open Source Radio is hosted by Christopher Lydon. I remember him as host of a call-in radio show out of Boston called The Connection. I guess it was nationally syndicated through NPR but I always thought of it as homegrown because I consider Boston my hometown. I thought very highly of the The Connection because Chris Lydon always seemed exceptionally well prepared. If an author was on, Chris had actually read their books or a least enough to talk intelligently and in depth. I don't mean he just skimmed; he obviously understood the main points and arguments and had a context for them. I found it rather astonishing how prepared he was. Obviously a very smart fellow.

    At the least, I'll listen to the show. I think. I'm not too sure it's carried on my local stations and I'm uncertain of how it will sound on my dialup connection.
