I believe the program is "talk of the nation", for my local NPR subsidiary it is at 2pm eastern. I don't think they post the schedule for that day until later, but here is a link to where it will be posted: http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=5

As of this posting they have yesterday's line up still up.

I am going to call in, and hope to ask these questions. If someone else wants to ask them, go right ahead.

I have 2 questions, the first one is short -

1. Ron, why can’t you get more involved in promoting the July 12th march on Washington DC (now at RevolutionMarch.com)

2.
I have decided that instead of donating to my local NPR affiliate, I will be sending that money to Ron Paul Revolution oriented candidates and causes.

My question is:

Do you think it’s fair that American taxpayers continue to fund NPR given its failure to cover actual issues and candidates’ positions, and the fact after occasionally mentioning your campaign months before the primaries, NPR, Talk of the Nation, and Ken Rudin the so-called “Political Junkie” participated in the mainstream media’s news black-out your campaign during the critical primary weeks, choosing instead to focus instead on the such critical matters as whether or not Hillary Clinton is playing the gender card?

Bump. The program is about to start, I don't know if he's on at the beginning or later.

You misconstrued what he said about his past reluctance before running.

How can you misconstrue a flat out "NO"..?

That was painful to listen to, he seemed very disorganized .... did he really mix up George Wallace and Ralph Nader at the end?!?

Oh, well, can't be on every day I suppose ... hopefully those that heard this will read the book.

Eeehh....

"I read articles about it all the time."

I think I'm actually glad it was audio and not video (I don't want to see the expressions on the audience's faces. :eek:

EDIT: "And you don't have to worry, 'cause it's not gonna happen."

Hehe.
