Going To WAR


Next week, on July 4th, this nation's 230th birthday, Wide Awakes Radio launches. And for some reason, I'm a part of that.

I'm sure you've heard about Wide Awakes Radio. But you might not know that they invited me to be a part of it. But now that you know, you're reaction has to be:

What the hell were they thinking!

I'm actually honored and thrilled they asked me to be a part of it. Still, I'm sort of a little different than the rest of the group.

You see, the others have talent.

I'm not all that talented. Oh, there are some things I'm pretty good at. But at talking, writing, expressing myself clearly, having a winning personality ... that's not me. I'm just a poor, dumb Southern boy with a computer.

But, I am a conservative. I'm not a Republican. I'm certainly not a Democrat. I'm not an anything. But I am a conservative. And I guess that's what prompted the invitiation. Other than that, I can't figure it out.

You see, the rest of the group, like I said, has talent. They are some of the funniest, wittiest, bestest folks you could know. And I'm thrilled to be involved with them.

Oh, I expect they'll come to their senses and politely show me the door soon. Probably right after my first broadcast. Which is on Sunday, July 9, at 3:00 PM Eastern Time.

But don't wait for my little program. Listen July 4.

You'll be entertained. And, if you're not careful, you might just learn something.


  1. YAY basil!!! Marking my calendar RIGHT NOW to tune in to YOUR show!

  2. Now that is funny, I don't care who you are right there...

  3. With a sense of humor like that the despotic CEO of that station wouldn't dare take you off of teh air.

  4. I knew I should have gotten your autograph while you were here in my neck of the woods. Good luck. I hope I can make it to hear it.

  5. That's great! I'll be looking forward to tuning in! :)

  6. Hey congrats, good luck, and break a leg and whatever else people say in these moments...LOL

  7. OMG, that is so cool! Way to go Basil!

  8. Hey basil, I'll show you how to crash and burn, just listen to my show and you'll feel a lot better about yours. I'll have about five minutes of material, 5 minutes of intros, 2 hrs of phone calls and 30 minutes of dead air, (when I will be crying and screaming why lord why can't I think of anything funny to say.) The good news is each week we should get better.

  9. Wide AwakeS...

    As many of you already know Wide Awakes Radio kicks off on Independence Day!
    For true conservative political discussion, not Moore or Gore or the usual bore........head over n check out there schedule!...
