#TFH on #VLR 1/30 – And now for your regularly scheduled program!

TFHRsquareVLR-SaturdayUPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!! Their Finest Hour returns to Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight (January 30th) at its regularly scheduled time of 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific! Please join me for the the program in VLR’s chatroom with embedded show player! If you choose not to chat (and why not?!), you can listen using the other players on the site, direct over on Spreaker, or using a Spreaker mobile app.

We’re almost to Iowa Caucus day (Monday, February 1), so we’ll take a look at the current state of the Republican and Democratic primary races. We’ve also got top secret emails on Hillary Clinton’s private server (shocking, I’m sure the FSB has copies), I (finally) saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens last Saturday night (why there was no show), the NFL D-List…er…Pro Bowl is tomorrow, and we have a pathetic incidence of what I’ll call “roadside memorial mentality”.

IMG_6696Rants may ensue, plus I’m sure I’ll come up with some other topics, and we’ll do open phones as well! Tune in!!

Talk to you at 10E/9C/8M/7P!

#TFH on #VLR 1/16 – Testing…1…2…3…Testing with @moderncomments

Their Finest Hour will be LIVE tonight on Vigilant Liberty Radio! The program will start 5 to 10 minutes after the end of the Green Bay Packers vs. Arizona Cardinals NFC Divisional Playoff game, so figure about 11:30PM Eastern, 8:30PM Pacific!

Alternatively, you can join the program on the other show players you’ll find around, direct on Spreaker, or with a Spreaker mobile app. You can also use the #TFH hashtag on Twitter to interact with the program.

With the late start, only a one hour (or so, may go long) program tonight. I’ll be joined by VLR’s own Amy Curtis (@moderncomments) and she’ll be helping me test out a new broadcast rig I’ve put together that will allow me to produce better content both for Their Finest Hour and my other VLR program, The Roundtable of Extreme Liberty!

TFHRsquareVLR-SaturdayTheir Finest Hour will be LIVE on Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific for a look back at the year that was and some Christmastime thoughts! Please join me in the VLR chatroom for the program, and if you’d like to call into the program, the number is (412) 206-6050!

I’ll probably play a Christmas song or two, talk about the adventure my family will be taking for the holiday, and as I’ve done for the previous Christmas shows on TFH, will close with the broadcast made by Apollo 8 from lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1968.

One hour only tonight! It’s sure to be a great hour to close out the year with! If you’re not going to be in chat, you can also listen using the other players on the site or direct over on Spreaker.

#TFH on #VLR 12/12: Looks like an open-mic rant night!

TFHRsquareVLR-SaturdayTheir Finest Hour will hit Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight (Saturday, 12/12) at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific! Phones will be open from the outset, and I’ll want to hear from you! Whatever you want to talk about is fair game! Agree, disagree, whatever – call!

Once on air, the number to call is: (412) 206-6050!

There are a few things on my mind, like idiotic outrage! over Starbucks (yes, there’s more!), our fantastic border controls can’t stop ISIS but they can prevent the South Korean K-Pop act Oh My Girl from getting in, there’s this climate conference in Paris, there’s still no budget, etc., etc., etc.

While you’re waiting for showtime, here’s Oh My Girl and “Closer”:

Come join me in the chatroom for the program! If you don’t want to chat (why not?!), you can also listen using the other players on the site or direct over on Spreaker. They have mobile apps too!

I think I’ll also spin some of the latest trance from our good friends at Armada Music.

Their Finest Hour will be LIVE on Vigilant Liberty Radio at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific on Saturday, December 5th! Please join the program in VLR’s chatroom, or you can listen using the other available players here on the site. There’s always the direct method over on Spreaker too.

I’ll be discussing the latest on the investigation into what certainly appears to be a terrorist act in San Bernardino, California, along with commentary on what this means for gun control, homeland security, refugees, and the 2016 presidential race.

I’ll also have a recorded conversation with Anette Wachter, the “.30 Cal Gal“! Anette and I discussed her recent competitive shooting events, some upcoming projects she has, and the events from San Bernardino and other gun-related news items. Anette also makes and sells gun-related jewelry, and Christmas is coming! You can find Anette on all major social media platforms as “30calgal”

I may even be joined by a special guest during the show!

Finally, next Monday is the 74th anniversary of the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor, launching the United States into World War II. I’ll have a tribute/retrospective that I’m sure everyone will enjoy and appreciate.

10E/9C/8M/7P on Saturday night! Talk to you then!

#TFH on #VLR 11/28: It’s “Greatest Hits” Night!

Tonight Their Finest Hour hits Vigilant Liberty Radio with a pre-recorded show for this Thanksgiving holiday weekend! The show will post at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific on VLR’s Spreaker page, and you can enjoy at your leisure!

The “greatest hits” I’ll be playing are:

I also want to draw everyone’s attention to a charity fundraiser VLR’s Amanda McCallister (@RightInPlanning) is conducting this holiday season. Amanda would like to host an orphan from overseas during Christmas. During the visit, they’ll have the chance to meet potential adoptive families here, and it could change a very young life for the unquestioning better. Please donate if you can!!

Here’s the show!

I’ll be back with a brand new show next Saturday (12/5) – thanks everyone for your listenership and continued support, I hope everyone had a great holiday, and safe travels if you’re on the road!

#TFH on #VLR 11/21 – @AHMalcolm on Politics, Colonel Tony Nadal on #IaDrang

TFHRsquareVLR-SaturdayTheir Finest Hour returns to Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific! Please come join the program in VLR’s chatroom, or listen using the other show players you’ll find on the site, or direct over on Spreaker (or on their mobile device apps)!

First up this evening, I have a great conversation I recorded on Friday, November 20 with Andrew Malcolm (@AHMalcolm) of Investor’s Business Daily. Andrew, a.k.a “The Prince of Twitter” (per Ed Morrissey!), has decades of political reporting experience and is always entertaining and knowledgeable. I’m sure you’ll find our conversation interesting. Andrew’s writing at IBD is also a can’t miss, and he’s a great supporter of “new media” with his own experience that bridges genres and media delivery since the 1960s.

Then, to follow up on last week’s show and my conversation with Medal of Honor recipient Joe Marm, on Monday, November 16 I attended a lecture given at Washington and Jefferson College by Marm’s company commander, Colonel Ramon “Tony” Nadal. I’ll be playing content that I recorded during that lecture to expand on the story of the Battle of Ia Drang from last week.

I’ll probably fill in some of the gaps with some open phones, so tune in!

#TFH on #VLR 11/14 – #IaDrang50, #ParisAttacks, Open Phones

TFHRsquareVLR-SaturdayTheir Finest Hour returns to Vigilant Liberty Radio TONIGHT at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific in its new Saturday night time slot! Please come join the program in VLR’s chatroom with embedded show player! You can also listen using the other show players here on the site, or direct over on Spreaker (or one of their mobile apps).

The Saturday “relaunch” of TFH will get the program “back to basics” as it were. I will be recognizing the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Ia Drang, November 14-18, 1965, which was the first time American forces faced off against the People’s Army of Vietnam in Vietnam’s Central Highlands. The highlight of tonight’s show will be my interview with Medal of Honor Recipient Colonel Joe Marm, who graciously gave me some of his time on Friday, November 13, 2015. We’ll also hear the stories of the two other Ia Drang Medal of Honor recipients, Bruce Crandall and Ed Freeman, other high valour award recipients, and other historical aspects to the battle, including the fight at Landing Zone (LZ) “Albany” – which many don’t know about as it didn’t make it into the movie We Were Soldiers. There’s even a connection between the Ia Drang and September 11, 2001 that everyone should know.

Then, I’ll be discussing the latest on Friday, November 13, 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris, reportedly at the hands of the Islamic State. We’ll recap the latest news, probably get a little bit Churchillian, and talk about the possibility of parallels between our current situation in the Middle East and Vietnam of fifty years ago.

IMG_6696I’ll also open up the phones at some point, so listen for call in instructions! I’ve even got some new show music from Breakaway Patriot and Gareth Emery!

It all starts at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific TONIGHT. Please tune in!

And here’s the replay! The interview with Colonel Marm was fantastic, as well as the rest of the show!
