#TFH on #VLR 12/19 – Christmas Year In Review, Open Phones!

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.

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

#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:  http://alcoholheroes.com/events/2018-05-12/ (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.

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

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

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!

10E/9C/8M/7P – talk to you then!

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

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!

In hour two, I’ll be welcoming VLR’s own Amy Curtis (@moderncomments) of Modern Comments Radio (Wednesday Nights, 10E/7P). Amy and I attended Liberty Fest NYC this past weekend.

During hour two, I’ll definitely open up the phones, so if you have your own point you’d like to sound off on, that’ll be your chance! Be sure to be listening for the call in instructions!

#TFH on #VLR 9/28: Trump v. Putin, UN, Open Phones, & @crousselle!

TFHRsquareVLR2Their Finest Hour returns to Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific — LIVE and unafraid! I hope you’ll choose to join the program in VLR’s chatroom and interact as the show progresses! If not, there’s always the other show players you’ll find here on the site or you can listen direct on Spreaker or using one of their mobile device apps.

In hour 1 of the program, I’ll be talking about today’s opening of the UN General Assembly and the speechifying by President Obama and others. I’m also going to be discussing my breaking of my own moratorium on watching mainstream “news magazine” shows — both Russian President Vladimir Putin and GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump appeared on 60 Minutes last night.

IMG_6696Also, I had a little post at Hot Air over the weekend talking about defense spending, so perhaps we’ll get a caller or two on that! Phones will be open in the first hour, so be sure to be listening for the call in instructions!

In hour 2, I’ll be welcoming Christine Rousselle (@crousselle), Managing Web Editor for Townhall.com, back to the show. Christine covered Pope Francis’ visit to the United States, plus we’ll get her takes on other issues of the day, like John Boehner’s resignation. Perhaps we’ll take more calls too!

The fun all starts at 10E/9C/8M/7P – don’t miss the show!
