Michael Graham was one of one of the casualties of the conversion of WTKK to a music format.

The question became where would he go and what would he do?

Well proving that great minds think alike Less than two weeks after DaTechGuy on DaRadio goes into Syndication on the Money Matters Radio Network AM 1120 WBNW Concord AM 1390 WPLM Plymouth/AM 970 WESO Southbridge and now on FTR Radio nationwide another great mind has taken the leap into Syndication.

Michael Graham has announced today he is going into syndication on the Money Matters Radio network AND on my old station WCRN out of Worcester as well.

Now one might think it might be all about getting out there into syndication but I think its all about chasing me for that Steak Dinner I owe him.

So During the Week Tune in at Noontime on the Money Matters Radio network to hear Michael Graham and when Saturday comes along stay right there and join me DaTechGuy on DaRadio from Noon till 2 PM for great conservative talk at noon six days a week.

Update:
Should clarify that while Michael is on the Stations of the Money Matters Radio network his syndicated network is called: “The New England Talk Network”

One week of a Double Dose of DaTechGuy on DaRadio was fun but DaTechGuy on DaRadio Syndicated. That’s awesome!

DaTechGuy syndicated run begins at a temporary time on the Money Matters Radio network from 1-3 PM EST bringing you Matt O’Brien talking about a new initiative to stop Obamacare in its tracks in our the first hour and in our second hour the great debate. Chris Smitty Smith of The Other McCain on one side and Cynthia Yockey from A Conservative Lesbian on the other with the topic, Gay Marriage!

The call in number is 888-205-2263 the live stream for the Money Matters Network is here and or you can listen live via TuneIn.

So get your DaTechGuy Dose this Saturday Syndicated and talk those Saturday blues away!

Update: You can of course call in at 888-9-FEDORA as always.

Well there is a big development on the radio front.

This week I will NOT be on WCRN AM 830, in fact, let me officially inform you all that last Saturday’s show marks the end of DaTechGuy on DaRadio on WCRN (at least for now).

However that is due to some HUGE news.

As of this week (well officially Feb 2nd) DaTechGuy on DaRadio goes into Syndication through Cameo Productions!

Yes DaTechGuy will be on DaRadio on 3 count ’em 3 radio stations in New England at its new time Saturdays 1-3 PM EST

Tune into AM 1390 Plymouth, WBNW 1120 Concord or 970 WESO in Southbridge to find me on your dial, or simply pick up the feed from here the Money Matter Radio Network.

Three things:

1. This is a very big step, It took a lot of work to get here but it would not have been possible without a lot of people. From Stacy McCain first pushing the blog, Conservatively Speaking having me as a guest to WCRN offering the show folks have helped set the table. And of course the advertisers and you the listeners and readers brought it home. My thanks to each and every one of you.

2. The deal is not a salary deal. I’m still gotta move the time and shake DaTipJar if I’m going to have any chance to draw a pay. However I figure with the Money Matters Radio Network as the host, groups like the GOP, Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Works and others will certainly have a reason to get involved. After all the listener base for a financial network is pretty much people who can write checks with 4 figures and more. If that doesn’t draw ads from advocacy groups I can’t think of what will.

3. While the official announcement is well, now,  I’ve told people locally and in places like the GOP Chairman forum and how they reacted spoke volumes. The difference between “Hi I’m DaTechGuy a Radio talk host on W— vs “Hi I’m DaTechGuy a Syndicated Radio talk host is tremendous and as stations are added through the Cameo Media either in New England or outside that reaction will only grow.  It should increase my ability to get top line guests, it will however also bring a greater responsibility to create a better show.

The goal is what is has always been. The ability to pay the mortgage and support the family since the loss of my job and the end of unemployment benefits. Re-inventing yourself when you’re about to turn fifty isn’t easy.  It’s been a lot of work and a lot of risk to get this far. Over the next year I’ll find out if the goal is possible or if it’s all be just an impossible dream.

It won’t be boring.




Do you mean to tell me that DaTechGuy was on TWICE last week on four different radio stations and you STILL missed one or both of them?

Well I’m very disappointed in you but we can get by this. If you missed me my regular show on WCRN this week with Mary Lotze and Evan Sayet you can listen to that show here.

And if you Missed me on the Money Matters Radio Network Including WESO Southbridge, WPLM Plymouth and WBNW Concord we can fix that too, Click here for our first hour where we brought back Evan Sayet (who ran late on WCRN) and here for our 2nd with James O’Keefe of Project Veritas

Mind you there is no excuse for not tuning in this week On WCRN we will be talking with Matt O’Brien of the Worcester Tea Party about the Mandate Amendment Coalition about their ongoing fight to stop Obamacare and on the Money Matters Radio Network we will host a great debate between Cynthia Yockey of A Conservative Lesbian and Smithy of The Other McCain on Gay Marriage.

So at 10 AM tune into WCRN AM 830 to catch show #1 and then at 1 PM catch me on either 970 WESO, 1120 WBNW or 1390 WPLM or go online at the Money Matters Radio Network here and catch DaTechGuy on DaRadio AGAIN!

The best part? Not only can you hear BOTH shows via TuneIn but you can reach either show from the same toll-free number 888-9-FEDORA!

So no excuses this week, you’ve got two chances to catch DaTechGuy on DaRadio again, let’s make the most of it!

With WTKK no longer talking on the air there is an incredible void in the quantity of conservative radio on the air in New England.

No More Michael Graham, No more Joe Lagotti (The guy from Boston). WE lost some first rate talk. Isn’t anyone gonna DO something about it?

This Week DaTechGuy on DaRadio does.

This week you get double DaTechGuy on DaRadio at 10 AM you get DaTechGuy on DaRadio on WCRN. In our first Hour Mary Lotze of the Fitchburg Republican Committee joins us as she always does the 3rd week of the month to talk the issues of the week and in our 2nd Hour Comedian Evan Sayet joins us to talk his latest book and laugh with us till noon.

This time on the Money Matters Radio network guest hosting from 1-3 bringing you in an open forum format the first hour and a Second Hour with James O’Keefe to talks about the latest from Project Veritas followed by Mary Ann Harold of WQPH Catholic Radio in the to talk about the upcoming March for life.

I know it’s hard to believe but it’s actually possible that some of you might have missed this week’s DaTechGuy on DaRadio featuring Dr. Paul Byrne in Hour 1 and Hostess Baker Mike Hummell in hour 2.

Well now that Saturdays’ show is available it’s a problem easily solved by clicking here.

And don’t forget to catch a double does of DaTechGuy on DaRadio this week as at 10 AM on WCRN we welcome Mary Lotze in the first hour and comedian Evan Sayet in the 2nd at 10 AM EST on WCRN but I’ll get guest hosting a special edition of DaTechGuy on DaRadio one hour later from 1-3 PM on the Money Matters Radio Network.

Be there or be square!

Update: Wrong show 111 vs 112, fixed

Today on DaTechGuy on DaRadio we have two very different discussions to chew on.

In our first hour we talk to Dr. Paul Byrne a giant in the care of premature children.  He will be giving his thought on end of life issues including “Brain Death” vs true death and discover that a lot of what you believe isn’t what you think it is.

In the second hour we turn to the Hostess Strike.  I’ve hit the bakers union a bit on the blog and the show and though it would be good to get a 2nd perspective so Mike Hummell of the Bakers Union will be joining us.  Was the Bakers union unreasonable?  Were they “Going Galt?” both or neither, we’ll find out in the 2nd hour.

It all starts at 10 AM on WCRN AM 830 and we’d love to have you join the conversation 508-438-0965 or 888-9-FEDORA.

And if you are somehow out of our 50,000 watt signal’s range you can join us online in several ways:

It’s very unusual that I linked from the Daily Kos and it’s 1000’s times odder to get a positive shoutout from them but that took place earlier today:

I was fascinated by his unique view so I responded and have been shown nothing but respect from the man. I sent him a letter and he published it as a comment and as a guest post. I will be on his radio show, airing from Worcester, MA on Saturday at 11am Eastern time to discuss the Hostess strike.

The Author Mike Hummell is a member of the Bakers Union, the post he is talking about is here which said in part:

I spoke to a driver from a rival company that has all the work he can get with Hostess gone, and he said if it was him, he wouldn’t have taken the deal, not with big bonuses going to execs. He said with the cuts they would basically be working for nothing.

I disagreed with the premise under the 92% of something is worth more than 100% of nothing but it occurred to me: Could these bakers have decided they were “Going Galt”?

After all is one perceives they are not getting the reward for had and increased labor it makes no difference if it is government or management that is taking the surplus, the net effect is the same.

Of course in theory if it is management one can find another employer but to the baker with a more specialized profession they might not see it that way.

So in that sense the bakers are no different that any other professional who has decided they just aren’t working anymore for less.

I thought it was an interesting argument so we exchanged e-mails and I arranged for him to be on my show DaTechGuy on DaRadio tomorrow in the 2nd hour (WCRN AM 830 10 – noon) to talk about the strike from the Bakers Union’s point of view.

Today we tweeted back and forth to confirm the show and the details and he began tweeting about his upcoming appearance:

hummell

To answer his question, yes 888-9-fedora toll-free from anywhere to call in.

You might wonder why I have a screen shot of his tweets rather than the tweets themselves. Well there is an explanation and it’s not pretty:

I have just been suspended from Twitter for the 7th time in less than 60 days. I have the emails to prove it. There is an amazing correlation between my postings on the Hostess Bankery and the timing of these suspensions. Earlier today I published about Hostess again. Within an hour of tweeting the news my account was suspended.

I have never posted a comment I wouldn’t show my kids. If my account was up I could prove that too. This is not about me being some kind of troll. I do not use any features more than an average twitter user. I will eventually receive an auto generated response that says I should stop auto replying to people. The irony is an especially aggravating part of this.

I’m not an expert on Mike’s tweets but other than some I disagree with (OK most) I’ve seen nothing that look like grounds for suspension and if he tells he there are no ground for this I take him at his word:

I am not accusing twitter of doing anything vindictive to me. I am saying that they have a suspension policy that can be exploited to shut people up and it MUST be fixed. Someone is benefiting from this and it ain’t me.

I’ve had several friends end up in the so-called Twitter Gulag including people I know personally like Chris Loesch.  On Twitchy they are talking about tactics to fight the use of the Twitter Gulag:

The buzz continues to build for the Twitter Gulag Defense Network, a grassroots project launched last weekend by Twitter user Todd Kincannon. Using the hashtag #TGDN, the project connects conservative activists and helps Twitter users combat the abusive flag-spam tactics used by some leftists to silence conservative voices.

#TGDN has been trending off and on since Saturday, Jan. 5, and more than 4,000 happy warriors have joined the network. This morning, Kincannon reached out to #TGDN members with his suggestions for staying out of the dreaded Twitter Gulag. His ideas include methods to thwart flag-spam trolls and tips to avoid triggering Twitter’s automatic suspension algorithms.

I’ve dealt with more than my share of folks on twitter who would rather throw an insult than make an argument and I don’t hold them in high regard. If your point of view is valid it should be worth defending and able to accept a challenge. As for trying to silence people on twitter let me say underhanded tactics used to silence conservative speech I agree with are just as despicable if they are used to silence liberal speech I disagree with.

If anyone on the right is responsible for this, let me say I’m ashamed of you, you should know better. If you are someone on the left outraged by this I would ask you to show that same outrage the next time someone tries to silence Ann Coulter or my friend Pam Geller.

Either way Mike Hummell is going to be on this Sicilian’s radio show tomorrow, he’s going to make his points concerning the Hostess Strike, I and my co-host will make mine, our callers will make theirs and I’ll trust my listeners to make up their minds. Twitter Gulag or no Twitter Gulag I’ve agreed to have him on and that’s the way it’s going to be.  Period!

Last week was the first time in 111 shows that I had a guest host instead of appearing on my show.

The Right Wing Granny did a great job and brought in a plethora of additional guests for a lively show.

I of course missed it because of the funeral but if you like me couldn’t hear it live you can now catch it here.

And make sure you tune in this week When my first Hour Guest will be Dr. Paul Byrne, past president of the Catholic Medical Association on end of life issues the first hour and Mike Hummell talking the Hostess strike from Bakers Union side, were they going Galt?

It all starts at 10 AM EST this Saturday on DaTechGuy on DaRadio

Today is the funeral for my mother so for the first time in my 111 show run I will not be in Worcester or calling in remotely.

Have no fear oh fans of DaTechGuy on the radio, rather than a canned show or a best of show you will still get some of the best conservative blogging radio around!

Today’s your show will be brought to you by my first guest host EVAH! That frequent regular guest, great blogger and all around great person the Right Wing Granny!

So at 10 AM tune into WCRN and enjoy as the Right Wing Granny brings on a slew of guests and some great talk all the way till noon.
