Land of the Sky with Brody Hunt
Actor…author…director…comedian…musician…philosopher…political satirist…record-company owner…and one of the best “voices” in the business (just ask THE SIMPSONS), Harry Shearer is a comic personality and modern day renaissance man.
For the past two decades he has enjoyed enormous success and planted the fruits of his talents in the heads of millions worldwide thanks to his voice work for THE SIMPSONS, where he plays a stable of characters: most notably Mr. Burns, Smithers, and insufferable neighbour Ned Flanders.
Movie audiences will know Shearer best for his collaborations with Christopher Guest and friends. The most famous of these is the granddaddy of all mock-umentaries, THIS IS SPINAL TAP (with Rob Reiner and Michael McKean). The film revealed the concepts of spontaneously- combusting drummers and amps that go up to eleven. Spinal Tap – the band have enjoyed worldwide success performing live and five years ago stole the show at the Live Earth concert at Wembley, London. In 2009 Harry, Christopher and Michael reunited to tour an acoustic version of Spinal Tap songs as themselves in the Unwigged and Unplugged tour (which is available on DVD) and returned as Derek Smalls, Nigel Tufnel and David St. Hubbins to play Glastonbury and Wembley Arena with the volume turned up to eleven. Other Guest collaborations have included, A MIGHTY WIND and FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.
Sunday 10:00 – 11:00 pm
Thursday 3:00pm -5:00pm
Our program was founded by Mark Bebawi on the eve of the “shock and awe” invasion of Iraq in 2003 in response to the poor quality of available news coverage at the time. Since then The Monitor has evolved into a weekly examination of consequential and under-reported news stories, including climate change, the global economy, corporate greed and malfeasance, torture, election fraud, foreign and domestic policy, government corruption, surveillance, September 11th and its repercussions, the military and militarization, human rights issues, and constitutional law.
Guests of our program have ranged from Nobel Prize-winning economists to cartoonists and film makers, each bringing you a unique and expert opinion. Every week we bring to our listeners opinion and commentary from people like Marjorie Cohn, John W. Dean, Lou Dubose, Robert Fisk, Amy Goodman, Seymour Hersh, Jim Hightower, Arianna Huffington, Ray McGovern, Greg Palast, Jeremy Scahill, Helen Thomas, Katrina Vanden Heuvel, Gore Vidal, Naomi Wolf, Howard Zinn, and many others. We are also proud to have once welcomed Molly Ivins to our program.
