In October of 2010 Carl Bott at KCNR 1460AM asked the Redding Tea Party to start a program called "We the People". Elizabeth Woodward and Erin Ryan took up the challenge and began broadcasting every Sunday morning from 8-10AM. Check out the archives for We the People "the early years".
In December 2013 our friend Elizabeth moved to Utah. She and Dan are having a great time but we certainly do miss her and always think of her at daylight savings time! Remember the morning that she forgot to set her clock ahead and we did the first 1/2 hour without her? She was always good for new ideas, great shows, insightful comments and some good old fashioned physical humor in the studio. Headbumping the microphone never got old.
In October of 2014 the tea party decided to go a different direction with programming and funding so We the People Radio was suspended until new funding and a new show time could be arranged. It was in that gap that we learned just how many loyal listeners around the country and around the globe are using the show to get information and learn more about topics they find important. It was humbling to receive the calls and emails from people who wanted us to hurry up and start broadcasting again. Thanks to all who encouraged us over that hurdle!
We are now privately funded so we'd appreciate any help you or your contacts can offer for sponsorship or advertising. Click for more information.
In March of 2015 we received a call from the Conservative Commandos Radio Network on WNJC 1360AM in Philadelphia/New Jersey asking if we would like to join their broadcast family. They found us on Twitter and liked the show! We've been broadcasting our 2 hour show for over a year now but will be taking a break after the July 31, 2016 program until we can line up a few new sponsors. Can you or someone you know pitch in a little bit to get us back into that major metropolitan market??
Erin Ryan is the one looking for issues to illuminate and interesting guests around every corner. Her answer to almost every problem is, "We've got to hurry and tell people about this!" (and have a great time while we do it).
Bill Cundiff took over as co-host in December 2013. He was always our trusty coffee guy and all around Sunday morning studio support but as co-host he's brought great insight and lots of humor to the show.
The magic of We the People Radio is completed by Bob Martin, our engineer. His musical library and excellent timing have given us many a chuckle and has always carried the show to the next level. He puts the "We" in our People for sure and it wouldn't be the same without him.
Most shows have way too much "host" and not enough "guest" so we set out to carve a niche in talk radio focusing on all the topics the mainstream media only covers in sound bites.
We have great authors and talk show hosts and professors and scientists and activists and military experts and researchers and amazing whistleblowers all spending time teaching us about their area of expertise.
Our vantage point is conservative but we are VERY "liberal" with the humor.
We are building an amazing audio library and love suggestions for future topics from all of you! What have you always wanted to know? Who have you seen interviewed for a split second and thought "What the heck! They have so much knowledge! I didn't learn a thing from that interview because it was too short!". Those are great opportunities to call / text / email We the People Radio so we can get them on the show.
Thanks for listening. We want to hear from you!
