We have a great community radio station in the north woods of Wisconsin, WOJB.  It’s owned and operated by the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Ojibwe, in the town of Reserve, on the Lac Courte Oreilles reservation nine miles southeast of Hayward.

Every Wednesday morning at 8:30 am, WOJB Public Affairs director Eric Schubring hosts a call-in show with Ed Garvey, founder of FightingBob.com.  They discuss the issues of the day at both the state and national level and occasionally welcome  guests such as Russ Feingold, Mike McCabe and Spencer Black, to name a few, and most recently  Kathleen Vinehout.

Some of the highlights of the interview:

Vinehout says that the GOP and Walker dishonored Wisconsin by failing to work with the elected leaders of Wisconsin’s Native American tribes regarding GTAC’s mining bill.

She says that if the people of the region up here oppose the mine that should be good enough to stop it.

She talks about how she found 1,000 new voters during her first campaign in 2006.

She talks about the poor and about growing up poor. When’s the last time you heard a democrat really talk about the poor?

She talks about “ Healthy Wisconsin “ the universal health care plan passed by senate democrats in the 2007 budget and then never spoken of again after Obama’s election in 2008, except by Kathleen Vinehout.

There’s plenty more in the almost 30 minute interview so give it a listen and then pass it along.

Far and wide!
