    Episode 109 - Adam Frisch

    Rundown - 

     

    Adam Frisch - 05:48

     

    Right Wing Media Watch - 01:35:44

     

    Troubadour Dave Gunders - 01:58:38

     

    "Regrets" by Dave Gunders - 02:12:18

     

    Hear it here first. Adam Frisch is going to beat Lauren Boebert this November. He’s strong and calm. She’s insecure and frantic. He’s got the smarts. She’s got a Twitter account dedicated to dividing people. On Nov. 8, votes will be divided between these two. He’ll win.

     

    Lauren Boebert will lose as the walls come tumbling down around her hero, disgraced Dondald Trump, now suspected of espionage. CD3 is a largely rural district and Frisch has the winning message. Forget Trumpism. Boebert is just bad at her job, plus she’s pro-Putin.

     

    Frisch will be an excellent Representative. Educated at CU in business and political science, he amassed wealth as a world-wide traveling financier, paid handsomely for his ability to get along with people. He had a Minnesota upbringing and loving parents. 

     

    Frisch waited tables before making it big in NYC. Close brushes with East Coast terrorism, and the desire to raise his family in a better place, led Frisch back to Colorado. He served with distinction on Aspen’s City Council. He’s really Unaffiliated. Adam Frisch makes his strong case.

     

    Right Wing Media Watch segment analyzes the Mar-a-Lago FBI search, and Trump’s invocation of the 5th hundreds of times at a sworn deposition. Analysis of the same events by Dan Caplis played, and analyzed. Talk radio without real conversations is horrible, and authoritarian.

     

    Troubadour Dave Gunders delivers a great discussion of a recent Red Rocks experience and what song he might play there. His song of the week, Regrets, is perfect for DJT (and Red Rocks). Trump did it all for greed, as the song says.

    Episode 108 - Jerry Bell

    Rundown - 

     

    Jerry Bell - 10:56

     

    Troubadour Dave Gunders - 02:04:15

     

    "Hard of Understanding" by Dave Gunders - 02:12:23

     

    Jerry Bell has been the dominant radio news voice of Colorado since 1986. Before that, he worked in big-time San Francisco radio news as a young phenom. This was the early 1980s in SF and Jerry knew big shots like late Harvey Milk and his assassin, Dan White.

     

    As a Bay Area boy, Jerry’s parents worried Jerry and his older brother would be sent to fight in Vietnam, so they moved to Canada. Soon, Jerry’s family returned to Santa Rosa. At San Francisco State, while studying journalism, he learned about radio. He was smitten.

     

    Jerry Bell made a great career out of radio news. First, he was paid to witness San Francisco’s most decadent and deadly decade, learning the news-radio ropes, while watching the city become a wild place to live. Jerry brings alive the fun and energy of that transformative time in the City by the Bay.

     

    Jerry Bell became a news-fixture at Colorado’s blowtorch AM station, 850 KOA where he’d stay several decades. Along the way, he’s held many titles at Colorado’s 50,000 watt Blowtorch of the Rockies, 850 KOA, and its sibling stations. Jerry describes and defines the golden age at KOA.

     

    Jerry Bell was program director for Caplis and Silverman during its afternoon drive-time success. The downfall of talk radio with its partisan right wing rhetoric is reviewed. Jerry explains why he never let his personal politics show, or even come into play. Until this interview.

     

    Here, Jerry Bell talks about politics. We talk about big Colorado politicos with a special discussion regarding the presidential prospects of Governor Jared Polis. Jerry is a natural for podcasting as he proves here with amazing stories about his life and heritage.

     

    Our Troubadour Dave Gunders comes through again with brilliant discussion of current events and his poignant song titled Hard of Understanding. Hear epic lines about broadcast news, and trying to figure out where the truth lies. It’s all right here on Episode 108.

    Intro with Troubadour Dave Gunders - 00:36

     

    "One Stop Shop" by Dave Gunders - 16:51

     

    Dr. Nedra Downing - 22:25

     

    State Rep Steven Woodrow in Craig's Lawyers' Lounge - 01:02:58

     

    The heart of Denver takes center stage as the host reminisces about his four decades working downtown and his recent move to start his new law firm in the heart of Greenwood Village. Reminiscences about ever-changing downtown Denver are fun, especially when the Troubadour played Josephina's in Larimer Square and Craig dined at The Delectable Egg.

     

    Troubadour Dave Gunders, an accomplished businessman/musician with an MBA, provides his perspective on Craig’s opening a new One Stop Shop named Craig Silverman Law, LLC. Dave Gunders’ song, One Stop Shop, makes you want to dance. So does our discussion of DOJ v Trump grand jury.

     

    Dr. Nedra Downing lost her beloved son Tom Hollar 7.23.93 just above downtown Denver in CapHill. Nedra talks about that Denver Summer of Violence, Denver, and her home in Michigan. We honor the memory of Tom Hollar who would’ve been 60 now. Tom loved Neon.

     

    @WoodrowForCO is an outspoken and progressive native Michigander who starred in Craig’s Lawyers’ Lounge back on Episodes 37 and 60. This elected CO State Representative from South Denver Colorado is an outspoken critic of fascism and Trumpism. Listen to this up and coming Dem advocate for the prosecution of our defeated former president.

     

    Steven Woodrow knows which political races mean the most in Colorado this year. Steve understands how the Rule of Law and democracy are at stake and argues a newly expanded US Supreme Court is necessary. The process and prospects of achieving that kind of change are discussed.

    Episode 106 - Wyoming Women Saving America – Susan Stubson celebrates Liz Cheney

    Episode 106 - Wyoming Women Saving America – Susan Stubson celebrates Liz Cheney

    Rundown - 

     

    Intro with Troubadour Dave Gunders - 00:35

     

    "Every Space" by Dave Gunders - 21:53

     

    Susan Stubson in Craig's Lawyers' Lounge - 26:54

     

    Unlike Denver Trump Radio, we discuss the latest in the biggest criminal case in American history. Steve Bannon, along with Donald Trump, authored the January 6 coup/insurrection with MAGA-fans “swarming the zone.” Now, Bannon’s convicted, and Trump further exposed thanks to J6 Committee.

     

    Susan Stubson is a brilliant attorney and rodeo queen. @WyoRodeoQueen is a native of Casper, Natrona County, Wyoming where her family has lived for six generations. This part of Wyoming was also home for the legendary Cheneys. Susan’s a Republican as are most people north of metro Denver.

     

    In 2016, Susan’s accomplished attorney husband Tim Stubson ran for the U.S. House after a stellar eight-year career as a Republican in the Wyoming legislature. The battle was hard-fought with Cheney prevailing in the decisive Republican primary.

     

    Now, Liz Cheney, subject of podcast Episode 104 with her CC Professor Bob Loevy, faces a significant Trump-backed primary challenge on August 16, 2022 in form of another Wyoming lawyer named Harriet Haggeman. Susan and Tim Stubson know all these lawyers including Liz Cheney and back Liz big-time now.

     

    Wyoming women are tough as evidenced by Susan Stubson who raises her two teen boys named Huck and Finn while practicing law, skiing, adventuring, and going to rodeos while also being a world-class pianist. Susan’s also a brilliant writer as she proves for Casper newspaper and now the New York Times.

     

    This column by Susan Stubson is near perfect but may be in vain. Perhaps Liz Cheney could move to Colorado like Stubson’s parents, take on Lauren Boebert, and then run for President. Cheney’s got a Teton mountain to climb to win in Trump-cultish Wyoming. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/07/15/opinion/liz-cheney-wyoming-voters.html?searchResultPosition=1

     

    Our Troubadour Dave Gunders once climbed the Tetons at the precise wrong time and almost paid with his life. We discuss how Secret Service for VP Pence feared for their lives on January 6, 2021. We discuss all the latest current events in fascinating introduction of Every Space song, perfect for this Wyoming-oriented show.

     

    We don’t ever want a war between Wyoming and Colorado. There are too many good Stubsons on both sides. We talk it out on Episode 106.

    Episode 105 - Paige Mackey Murray – Colorado Human Rights Appellate Lawyer

    Episode 105 - Paige Mackey Murray – Colorado Human Rights Appellate Lawyer

    Rundown - 

     

    Troubadour Dave Gunders - 07:19

     

    "Nothing the Wind Can't Blow" by Dave Gunders - 23:04

     

    Paige Mackey Murray in Craig's Lawyers' Lounge - 30:05

     

    Paige Mackey Murray grew up in Cocoa Beach, FL where her father, Skip Mackey, was the Voice of NASA. http://www.skipmackey.com/nasa.html. We discuss the spectacular performance of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope and what her dad might’ve thought.

     

    As the US Supreme Court takes away the rights of women, the Colorado Court of Appeals just pronounced a man’s right to not procreate should be respected. https://www.courts.state.co.us/Courts/Court_of_Appeals/Opinion/2022/20CA1881-PD.pdf. The winning lawyer was Paige Mackey Murray. It turns out that she is winning in every way.

     

    This Boulderite feels strongly about personal human rights, and she is brilliant. Paige writes and fights in the appellate courts for a living. Paige Mackey Murray has strong feelings about recent US Supreme Court decision-making and voices her dissent.

     

    We discuss the draconian consequences of the Dobbs decision and the end of Roe v. Wade in America. Real juvenile rape victims are going to be further victimized. Colorado may become over-populated with Bible Belters fleeing here. The legal challenges are enormous.

     

    Troubadour Dave Gunders gifts us with his usual stellar song, this one about a single mother facing challenges. The song also speaks about stars and space, and we ponder the Webb space telescope revealing mysteries of the universe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC7OlAfPOlg

     

    Also discussed are the latest developments of the January 6 Select Committee, revealing more bad stuff about Donald Trump. We’ve got the Steve Bannon confession delivered days before Trump’s Big Lie implemented.

    Episode 104 - Bob Loevy – Legendary Colorado College Political Science Professor

    Episode 104 - Bob Loevy – Legendary Colorado College Political Science Professor

    Rundown - 

     

    Professor Bob Loevy - 29:59

     

    Troubadour Dave Gunders - 01:52:24

     

    "Somebody Who Knows it All" by Dave Gunders - 01:59:30

     

    Episode 104 is packed with analysis of right-wing anti-Semitism flowing through Denver Trump Radio and the mouths of hosts and guest GOP officials. We talk Jan 6 Committee developments and Cippollone and Hutchinson testimony. https://coloradosun.com/2022/07/05/silverman-hutchinson-trump-opinion/

     

    During these intense political times, we gain wisdom from Gazette columnist Bob Loevy, who long-taught political science at The Colorado College in Colorado Springs. He was Liz Cheney’s professor and speaks about how the Cheney family is connected to host’s alma mater. https://gazette.com/news/liz-cheneys-colorado-college-education-led-to-gop-showdown-bob-loevy/article_2f2af52e-b274-11eb-b1b3-d775e1294b52.html

     

    Professor Loevy was raised in Baltimore where he worked as a reporter for city’s major newspaper from 1957 – 1963 with a focus on the civil rights movement roiling Maryland and America. He then worked for prominent California Republican US Senator Thomas Kuchel in critical year of 1964 when Civil Rights Act passed. https://www.coloradopolitics.com/opinion/loevy-reporting-on-the-1960s-civil-rights-movement/article_28ef4bd0-8620-11ec-a077-efbbf76134d2.html

     

    Along the way, Loevy worked for, and got to know, Spiro “Ted” Agnew. The stories keep coming as Professor Loevy had a remarkable string of associations with major historical events and public figures. That makes sense when you consider his mother’s great-great-great grandfather was Archibald Williams, good friend with Abe Lincoln. https://faculty1.coloradocollege.edu/~bloevy/ArchibaldWilliamsBook/welcome.html

     

    A lifelong Republican, Loevy likes the approach now of Cheney and does not countenance Trumpism and/or racism within his Grand Old Party. The grand old days of Colorado College’s political science community still reverberate today. https://faculty1.coloradocollege.edu/~bloevy/home/

     

    Bob Loevy likes politics and wants America to have great politicians. He saw a big red wave coming before the Supreme Court used Dobbs to fire up people angry about the end of Roe v Wade. Listen to his current political prognostications.  https://gazette.com/politics/political-wave-watching-in-colorado-bob-loevy/article_91dbe376-c67e-11ec-a9a4-4fae95ead14f.html

     

    Troubadour Dave Gunders delivers again with “Somebody Who Knows it All” and discusses highly anticipated testimony of White House Counsel Pat Cippollone in the wake of Cassidy Hutchinson’s bombshell J6 Select Committee hearings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bimpyWBAiGo
