On Monday February 9, Digital Crossroads featured an interview with Reclaim the Media executive director Jonathan Lawson.

Listen to the entire 30-minute show, hosted by Radio Active Gavin, by clicking HERE. The show airs live at 9pm MST on Boise Community Radio, which is streaming at RadioBoise.org 24 hours a day.

Reclaim the Media has started a grassroots public assistance phone line in Seattle to provide answers to folks with DTV problems. SeattleDTV.com is such a unique project, Lawson says local TV stations are actually referring folks to them.

It would only amount to $1000 annually for small community radio stations like Boise Community Radio or Free Radio Moscow, but half of that money will go straight to the record companies. The broadcasting lobby is calling it a bailout for the record industry.

The first hour of the Touch the Sky radio show on Boise Community Radio today consists of a full re-broadcast of the latest episode of Quiet Please, produced by Travis Owens. Quiet Please airs Saturday nights at 11pm on RadioBoise.org and this one is so brilliant and effective I decided to showcase Travis’ efforts for a few more ears. Audio of his show will be available here on the Radioactive Gavin blog in the future.

The second hour of the show features the Monopoly Money segment, featuring music by Take. Today’s segment is focused on the NORML contest and the “news” (as revealed by the idiots at News of the World) that Gold Medalist Michael Phelps likes to take bong hits. He has more Gold Medals than there are intelligent people who could be bothered by this. Super Bowl viewers and NFL fans have likely heard Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and punt returner Santonio Holmes smokes herb too. What do you think?
