TED'S HEAD Nov 6th


The Friday Morning Breakfast Bar on WSLR isn't just for breakfast anymore. With the Fall Fund Drive now in full swing, our aim is to tempt you with a dazzling array of fine cuisine. . . however it's only available to the very fine people willing to contribute money toward our strong, high quality community radio station.  How about some Wild Alaskan Salmon, Florida Stone Crabs, perhaps some Southern Comfort Food or freshly made mouthwatering sandwiches?  Fine Cheese, Robust Steaks, Chicken Wings, Pastries, Coffee or even Waffles. Well you better listen in and you better act fast.

The Surreal News 9-10 am Friday 11/7/14

The election may be over, but the systems of voting and the financing of campaigns are still not right. Steve and Lew welcome show favorite and fund-drive regular Greg Palast (left) back to the show to clue us in on the continuing efforts of some to take away the voting rights of others.

And, from the road, Rhana Bazzini, Sarasota's own Granny D, will tell about her week walking to Tallahassee to raise awareness of the need to get money out of politics, or at least control the flow better.
