Over the weekend I posted Speaking out on the Radio about my invitation to go on WILD AM. Now western mass BMGers can tune in if they like.
I just got a call from Tom Vannah, a regular pinch hitting host on WHMP Progressive Talk Radio out of Northampton. He’ll be filling in for Bill Dwight. Vannah wants to talk about Benjamin LaGuer on Wednesday morning at 9:30. So any BMGers in range who want to listen can go to AM 1240/1400/1600. They usually post an mp3 of the program later in the day.
Vannah’s day job is editor of the Valley Advocate. He published my article last summer titled LaGuer Reconsidered (posted to BMG with embedded links here). He also published my recent article “Who Won? C’est LaGuer: The Anatomy of a Political Hit” (posted to BMG with embedded links as Election Postmortem on LaGuer – go there to weigh in on the discussion). Vannah told me he wants to talk about the political hit aspect of the case and about where things are going from here. The commonwealth is due to file its brief in the SJC on Wednesday. It’ll be interesting to see what they have to say. A rebuttal from LaGuer’s attorney is due to follow two weeks later. Oral arguments in January.
