Right Wing Media Watch - 01:35:44
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders - 01:58:38
 
"Regrets" by Dave Gunders - 02:12:18
 
Hear it here first. Adam Frisch is going to beat Lauren Boebert this November. He’s strong and calm. She’s insecure and frantic. He’s got the smarts. She’s got a Twitter account dedicated to dividing people. On Nov. 8, votes will be divided between these two. He’ll win.
 
Lauren Boebert will lose as the walls come tumbling down around her hero, disgraced Dondald Trump, now suspected of espionage. CD3 is a largely rural district and Frisch has the winning message. Forget Trumpism. Boebert is just bad at her job, plus she’s pro-Putin.
 
Frisch will be an excellent Representative. Educated at CU in business and political science, he amassed wealth as a world-wide traveling financier, paid handsomely for his ability to get along with people. He had a Minnesota upbringing and loving parents. 
 
Frisch waited tables before making it big in NYC. Close brushes with East Coast terrorism, and the desire to raise his family in a better place, led Frisch back to Colorado. He served with distinction on Aspen’s City Council. He’s really Unaffiliated. Adam Frisch makes his strong case.
 
Right Wing Media Watch segment analyzes the Mar-a-Lago FBI search, and Trump’s invocation of the 5th hundreds of times at a sworn deposition. Analysis of the same events by Dan Caplis played, and analyzed. Talk radio without real conversations is horrible, and authoritarian.
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders delivers a great discussion of a recent Red Rocks experience and what song he might play there. His song of the week, Regrets, is perfect for DJT (and Red Rocks). Trump did it all for greed, as the song says.

Episode 108 - Jerry Bell Rundown - 
 
Jerry Bell - 10:56
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders - 02:04:15
 
"Hard of Understanding" by Dave Gunders - 02:12:23
 
Jerry Bell has been the dominant radio news voice of Colorado since 1986. Before that, he worked in big-time San Francisco radio news as a young phenom. This was the early 1980s in SF and Jerry knew big shots like late Harvey Milk and his assassin, Dan White.
 
As a Bay Area boy, Jerry’s parents worried Jerry and his older brother would be sent to fight in Vietnam, so they moved to Canada. Soon, Jerry’s family returned to Santa Rosa. At San Francisco State, while studying journalism, he learned about radio. He was smitten.
 
Jerry Bell made a great career out of radio news. First, he was paid to witness San Francisco’s most decadent and deadly decade, learning the news-radio ropes, while watching the city become a wild place to live. Jerry brings alive the fun and energy of that transformative time in the City by the Bay.
 
Jerry Bell became a news-fixture at Colorado’s blowtorch AM station, 850 KOA where he’d stay several decades. Along the way, he’s held many titles at Colorado’s 50,000 watt Blowtorch of the Rockies, 850 KOA, and its sibling stations. Jerry describes and defines the golden age at KOA.
 
Jerry Bell was program director for Caplis and Silverman during its afternoon drive-time success. The downfall of talk radio with its partisan right wing rhetoric is reviewed. Jerry explains why he never let his personal politics show, or even come into play. Until this interview.
 
Here, Jerry Bell talks about politics. We talk about big Colorado politicos with a special discussion regarding the presidential prospects of Governor Jared Polis. Jerry is a natural for podcasting as he proves here with amazing stories about his life and heritage.
 
Our Troubadour Dave Gunders comes through again with brilliant discussion of current events and his poignant song titled Hard of Understanding. Hear epic lines about broadcast news, and trying to figure out where the truth lies. It’s all right here on Episode 108.
Episode 107 - Neon Denver featuring Dr. Nedra Downing and State Rep Steven Woodrow Rundown - 
 
Intro with Troubadour Dave Gunders - 00:36
 
"One Stop Shop" by Dave Gunders - 16:51
 
Dr. Nedra Downing - 22:25
 
State Rep Steven Woodrow in Craig's Lawyers' Lounge - 01:02:58
 
The heart of Denver takes center stage as the host reminisces about his four decades working downtown and his recent move to start his new law firm in the heart of Greenwood Village. Reminiscences about ever-changing downtown Denver are fun, especially when the Troubadour played Josephina's in Larimer Square and Craig dined at The Delectable Egg.
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders, an accomplished businessman/musician with an MBA, provides his perspective on Craig’s opening a new One Stop Shop named Craig Silverman Law, LLC. Dave Gunders’ song, One Stop Shop, makes you want to dance. So does our discussion of DOJ v Trump grand jury.
 
Dr. Nedra Downing lost her beloved son Tom Hollar 7.23.93 just above downtown Denver in CapHill. Nedra talks about that Denver Summer of Violence, Denver, and her home in Michigan. We honor the memory of Tom Hollar who would’ve been 60 now. Tom loved Neon.
 
@WoodrowForCO is an outspoken and progressive native Michigander who starred in Craig’s Lawyers’ Lounge back on Episodes 37 and 60. This elected CO State Representative from South Denver Colorado is an outspoken critic of fascism and Trumpism. Listen to this up and coming Dem advocate for the prosecution of our defeated former president.
 
Steven Woodrow knows which political races mean the most in Colorado this year. Steve understands how the Rule of Law and democracy are at stake and argues a newly expanded US Supreme Court is necessary. The process and prospects of achieving that kind of change are discussed.

Episode 106 - Wyoming Women Saving America – Susan Stubson celebrates Liz Cheney Rundown - 
 
Intro with Troubadour Dave Gunders - 00:35
 
"Every Space" by Dave Gunders - 21:53
 
Susan Stubson in Craig's Lawyers' Lounge - 26:54
 
Unlike Denver Trump Radio, we discuss the latest in the biggest criminal case in American history. Steve Bannon, along with Donald Trump, authored the January 6 coup/insurrection with MAGA-fans “swarming the zone.” Now, Bannon’s convicted, and Trump further exposed thanks to J6 Committee.
 
Susan Stubson is a brilliant attorney and rodeo queen. @WyoRodeoQueen is a native of Casper, Natrona County, Wyoming where her family has lived for six generations. This part of Wyoming was also home for the legendary Cheneys. Susan’s a Republican as are most people north of metro Denver.
 
In 2016, Susan’s accomplished attorney husband Tim Stubson ran for the U.S. House after a stellar eight-year career as a Republican in the Wyoming legislature. The battle was hard-fought with Cheney prevailing in the decisive Republican primary.
 
Now, Liz Cheney, subject of podcast Episode 104 with her CC Professor Bob Loevy, faces a significant Trump-backed primary challenge on August 16, 2022 in form of another Wyoming lawyer named Harriet Haggeman. Susan and Tim Stubson know all these lawyers including Liz Cheney and back Liz big-time now.
 
Wyoming women are tough as evidenced by Susan Stubson who raises her two teen boys named Huck and Finn while practicing law, skiing, adventuring, and going to rodeos while also being a world-class pianist. Susan’s also a brilliant writer as she proves for Casper newspaper and now the New York Times.
 
This column by Susan Stubson is near perfect but may be in vain. Perhaps Liz Cheney could move to Colorado like Stubson’s parents, take on Lauren Boebert, and then run for President. Cheney’s got a Teton mountain to climb to win in Trump-cultish Wyoming. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/07/15/opinion/liz-cheney-wyoming-voters.html?searchResultPosition=1
 
Our Troubadour Dave Gunders once climbed the Tetons at the precise wrong time and almost paid with his life. We discuss how Secret Service for VP Pence feared for their lives on January 6, 2021. We discuss all the latest current events in fascinating introduction of Every Space song, perfect for this Wyoming-oriented show.
 
We don’t ever want a war between Wyoming and Colorado. There are too many good Stubsons on both sides. We talk it out on Episode 106.
Episode 105 - Paige Mackey Murray – Colorado Human Rights Appellate Lawyer Rundown - 
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders - 07:19
 
"Nothing the Wind Can't Blow" by Dave Gunders - 23:04
 
Paige Mackey Murray in Craig's Lawyers' Lounge - 30:05
 
Paige Mackey Murray grew up in Cocoa Beach, FL where her father, Skip Mackey, was the Voice of NASA. http://www.skipmackey.com/nasa.html. We discuss the spectacular performance of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope and what her dad might’ve thought.
 
As the US Supreme Court takes away the rights of women, the Colorado Court of Appeals just pronounced a man’s right to not procreate should be respected. https://www.courts.state.co.us/Courts/Court_of_Appeals/Opinion/2022/20CA1881-PD.pdf. The winning lawyer was Paige Mackey Murray. It turns out that she is winning in every way.
 
This Boulderite feels strongly about personal human rights, and she is brilliant. Paige writes and fights in the appellate courts for a living. Paige Mackey Murray has strong feelings about recent US Supreme Court decision-making and voices her dissent.
 
We discuss the draconian consequences of the Dobbs decision and the end of Roe v. Wade in America. Real juvenile rape victims are going to be further victimized. Colorado may become over-populated with Bible Belters fleeing here. The legal challenges are enormous.
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders gifts us with his usual stellar song, this one about a single mother facing challenges. The song also speaks about stars and space, and we ponder the Webb space telescope revealing mysteries of the universe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC7OlAfPOlg
 
Also discussed are the latest developments of the January 6 Select Committee, revealing more bad stuff about Donald Trump. We’ve got the Steve Bannon confession delivered days before Trump’s Big Lie implemented.
Episode 104 - Bob Loevy – Legendary Colorado College Political Science Professor Rundown - 
 
Professor Bob Loevy - 29:59
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders - 01:52:24
 
"Somebody Who Knows it All" by Dave Gunders - 01:59:30
 
Episode 104 is packed with analysis of right-wing anti-Semitism flowing through Denver Trump Radio and the mouths of hosts and guest GOP officials. We talk Jan 6 Committee developments and Cippollone and Hutchinson testimony. https://coloradosun.com/2022/07/05/silverman-hutchinson-trump-opinion/
 
During these intense political times, we gain wisdom from Gazette columnist Bob Loevy, who long-taught political science at The Colorado College in Colorado Springs. He was Liz Cheney’s professor and speaks about how the Cheney family is connected to host’s alma mater. https://gazette.com/news/liz-cheneys-colorado-college-education-led-to-gop-showdown-bob-loevy/article_2f2af52e-b274-11eb-b1b3-d775e1294b52.html
 
Professor Loevy was raised in Baltimore where he worked as a reporter for city’s major newspaper from 1957 – 1963 with a focus on the civil rights movement roiling Maryland and America. He then worked for prominent California Republican US Senator Thomas Kuchel in critical year of 1964 when Civil Rights Act passed. https://www.coloradopolitics.com/opinion/loevy-reporting-on-the-1960s-civil-rights-movement/article_28ef4bd0-8620-11ec-a077-efbbf76134d2.html
 
Along the way, Loevy worked for, and got to know, Spiro “Ted” Agnew. The stories keep coming as Professor Loevy had a remarkable string of associations with major historical events and public figures. That makes sense when you consider his mother’s great-great-great grandfather was Archibald Williams, good friend with Abe Lincoln. https://faculty1.coloradocollege.edu/~bloevy/ArchibaldWilliamsBook/welcome.html
 
A lifelong Republican, Loevy likes the approach now of Cheney and does not countenance Trumpism and/or racism within his Grand Old Party. The grand old days of Colorado College’s political science community still reverberate today. https://faculty1.coloradocollege.edu/~bloevy/home/
 
Bob Loevy likes politics and wants America to have great politicians. He saw a big red wave coming before the Supreme Court used Dobbs to fire up people angry about the end of Roe v Wade. Listen to his current political prognostications.  https://gazette.com/politics/political-wave-watching-in-colorado-bob-loevy/article_91dbe376-c67e-11ec-a9a4-4fae95ead14f.html
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders delivers again with “Somebody Who Knows it All” and discusses highly anticipated testimony of White House Counsel Pat Cippollone in the wake of Cassidy Hutchinson’s bombshell J6 Select Committee hearings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bimpyWBAiGo

By the Grace of the Game: The Holocaust, a Basketball Legacy, and an Unprecedented American Dream: Grunfeld, Dan, Allen, Ray: 9781629379227: Amazon.com: Books
 
Ernie Grunfeld was basketball star in the 1970s and 1980s, as a NY high schooler, then a Tennessee Vols’ star, before excelling for over a decade in the NBA. But the really interesting story, told by his son Dan, is how Ernie Grunfeld and his family survived the Holocaust and communism before escaping Romania for NYC.
 
Dan Grunfeld’s grandmother, Unyu, is a remarkable survivor who made a miraculous escape and thrived when she got to America. This exceptionally well-written book and author are full of stories of American freedom as the Grunfeld family found its American Dream.
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders has a remarkable father, Henry Gunders, featured on Episode 21. Now, we meet Dave’s wonderful daughter Rachel Gunders. Henry Gunders’ granddaughter is an accomplished twenty-something NYC investment banker with exceptional wisdom.
 
Rachel Gunders weighs in on the game-changing testimony of former Trump White House official, twenty-something Cassidy Hutchinson, and the explosive (with ketchup) J6 Committee hearings. The Dobbs abortion case reversing Roe v Wade is also discussed with this delightful and wise young woman.
 
As show wraps up second year, we return to our inaugural song of Fourth of July, with Rachel singing beautiful harmony with her Troubadour father. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zftAQ7aWX9s
 
Chip Evans, Esq. returns to Craig’s Lawyers’ Lounge with superb analysis of current events in his native Texas and the rest of America.

Episode 102 - Colorado Governor Jared Polis and CU Regent Heidi Ganahl Rundown - 
 
CU Regent Heidi Ganahl - 04:29

Troubadour Dave Gunders - 01:13:12
 
"Place In The Sun" by Dave Gunders - 01:18:55
 
Podcast honored by 30-plus minute guest appearances each by Colorado Governor Jared Polis and his leading Republican rival, CU Regent Heidi Ganahl. Listen as Heidi successfully vies for host’s Unaffiliated primary vote, as she tries to beat her mega-MAGA opponent Greg Lopez.
 
Lopez promised a pardon for Tina Peters, and Ganahl rips that decision. So does host. Discussion of Big Lie and its consequences ensues. Host reveals his disdain and desire to distance himself from Big Lie perpetrators. Also discussed are US Supreme Court rulings on guns and abortion.
 
Heidi Ganahl earns host’s GOP primary vote with a pledge to meet Coloradans where they are (pro-choice) on abortion, and her keeping an open mind as the January 6 Select Committee concludes. Heidi Ganahl gets confronted about appearing on Bannon podcast; and responds.
 
Learn why Heidi Ganahl says she won’t yet appear with 9News’ Kyle Clark. Find out where Heidi draws the line on right-wing interviewers. Find out why she thinks Colorado’s crime and education problems would get better if she’s elected Colorado’s first female Governor.
 
Headlining guest, Jared Polis, is Colorado’s serving Dem Governor, and may be propelled into a White House groundswell by a big win in November, especially if US has down Dem cycle. Governor Polis queried repeatedly about his presidential ambitions, possible Rockies’ ownership, and relative merits of Denver and Boulder.
 
I-70 killer truck-driver Rogel Aguilera-Mederos’ commutation discussed, along with any Kim Kardashian role. Governor Polis explains the tax rebate ($1500 for joint filing Colorado couples) and how it happened. Find out if TABOR deserves credit. Governor Polis explains why he’s not advocated for statewide assault weapon ban.
 
Governor Polis was a US House member for ten years and expresses his strong reaction to January 6, 2021. Congressional colleagues Liz Cheney and Adam Schiff are two colleagues. Polis knows well. White supremacist Proud Boy aspect of Trump’s insurrection discussed. So is hateful bigotry over-present in America and Colorado, including Denver talk radio.
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders makes perfect contribution with Place in the Sun about societal upheaval back in the turbulent 1960s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFfqiY4bETA. Many of same societal issues still plaguing us now. Time for new better generation of leadership.
 
Podcast proud to be independent forum for reasonable Republican and Democratic political leaders alike to experience fair and revealing interviews. Polis and Ganahl impress as smart fine people. Let the voters decide on policy. And let Trump’s Big Lie and Insurrection be met by truth and justice.
Episode 101 - Craig votes Joe O’Dea, Judith Berg remembers Alan Berg Rundown - 
 
Joe O'Dea - 13:19
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders - 28:23
 
"Only a Rock in the Road" by Dave Gunders - 42.30
 
Judith Berg - 01:15:42
 
Joe O’Dea has an excellent chance to be Colorado’s next U.S. Senator and would instantly become a powerful person in America. This affable native Denverite is a serious challenger to incumbent Senator Michael Bennet but first he must survive a Republican primary against mega-MAGA State Senator Ron Hanks.
 
Listen and learn why Joe O’Dea gets Craig’s Unaffiliated vote in the GOP primary. Joe O’Dea correctly anticipates the end of Roe v Wade will be bad for America. Joe also calls out the Big Lie and will not toe Trump’s party line. He’s a successful businessman and boss. Colorado needs a responsible GOP.
 
Unlike many Republicans engaged in willful blindness, Joe O’Dea may call out Team Trump criminality if proven by the January 6 Select Congressional Committee. Hear the highlights from the J6 hearing showing Proud Boy conspiracy with Team Trump, a $250 million dollar grift, and 45’s attempted murder of VP Pence.
 
America has had enough violence born of the Big Lie, yet the lie is perpetuated constantly on right wing Denver Trump Radio. We’ve got the sound of Joe O’Dea standing up to Dan Caplis regarding abortion. We acquaint you with J6 witnesses Nick Quested, Officer Caroline Edwards and Philadelphian Al Schmidt.
 
June 18, 1984 was tragic for Colorado and America. https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1987-11-10-8703240574-story.htmlA white supremacist gang conspired to assassinate Jewish radio talk show host Alan Berg in the 1400 block of Denver’s Adams Street. An assault weapon was used to commit the hate crime.
 
Judith Berg is a nationally recognized expert about the study of hate. https://5008.sydneyplus.com/HistoryColorado_ArgusNet_Final/Portal/Portal.aspx?component=AAFW&record=6d4767b3-a9d4-4007-ae68-7cd2ee1f2eb9. The former wife of Alan Berg, she’d been at dinner with her beloved Alan 38 years ago tonight, right before he was murdered.
 
Judith describes Alan as a beautiful Chicago boy at CU-Boulder who came down to her Denver Hilltop home to woo her, then Judith Halpern, still at East High. Love and marriage followed. Learn about the delight Alan felt to be part of Denver famous Bernie and Lily Halpern household.
 
Listen as Judith reacts bitterly to Peter Boyles, who has long claimed to be best friends with the late Alan Berg. Raw emotion is on display as memories flood back to this accomplished academic. She abhors Peter Boyles and you can hear the reasons she gives in this captivating interview.
 
This show has covered 6.18.84 murder of Alan Berg with an emphasis on understanding who truly were Alan’s friends. Check out Episode 70 - Alan Berg, Al Zinn, Stephen Singular, Harold Dubinski -- Who was Alan Berg‘s best friend? Listen to Episode 78 Alan Berg’s attorney/friend David Savitz.
 
Peter Boyles' last few years previous subject of Episode #48 – Boyles Capitulation, #64 – Colorado Insurrectionists and #81 -- Boyles’ Capitulation Reversed. Points made regarding Boyles’ apparent anti-Semitism. Figure out why Boyles delighted in calling Colorado’s first Jewish Governor “Pontius Polis.”
 
Listen at end of show for Boyles, back in November 2019, invoking “honor in the name of Alan Berg” after MAGA station management stopped host from criticizing Donald Trump. Hear Boyles delight in calling station’s only Jewish radio host “Craig Kaepernick.” Hmmm.
 
Troubadour Dave Gunders takes a stab at doing the show introduction and has humorous difficulties. He contributes a great song about overcoming obstacles titled Only a Rock in the Road. <a href="h
