My main gig these days is hosting The Nicole Sandler Show live weekday mornings from 10-noon ET at Radio or Not. After the live program ends, it’s available as an audio podcast, and on video archived at my YouTube channel. What follows on this page are some full shows, partial shows and interview segments from past gigs, fill-in stints and my Radio or Not program. There’s plenty more where these came from….
The Nicole Sandler Show at RadioOrNot.com – March 21, 2013
I expected this show to be the biggest “mea cupla” of them all, but it surprised me all around. Former Congressman Bob Ney who served time for corruption relating to his association with Jack Abramoff tells his whole story in a new book, Sideswiped, and held nothing back in this interview. Singer-songwriter Michelle Shocked was supposed to join me to talk about the incident at Yoshi’s in San Francisco just days earlier that could only be described as a homophobic meltdown. As an old acquaintance, she tweeted that she trusted me and said she’d come on the air with me to set the record straight. What transpired was the strangest experience I’ve ever had on the radio (or not).
The Randi Rhodes Show – March 25, 2013 (Hours 1, 2 and 3 posted in order)
The show the day before the Supreme Court would hear challenges to California’s Prop 8 and DOMA turned into a quest to understand peoples’ insecurities and fear about marriage equality. Plus The Nation‘s Dave Zirin joined in to talk about the “rapey” culture in sports.
The Randi Rhodes Show – December 17, 2013 (Hours 1, 2 and 3 posted in order)
Kicking off two weeks of guest hosting for Randi over the holidays. I was sick both physically (as you can hear from my voice), but also emotionally since the Friday before and the Sandy Hook shootings. It was therapeutic to talk about it.
The Thom Hartmann Show – with Melissa Etheridge October 17, 2008
My first time filling in for Thom Hartmann came just two weeks before the 2008 presidential election. I invited Melissa Etheridge on to talk about singing at the Democratic National Convention and more, and took some calls.
The Nicole Sandler Show on 940 WINZ – with Larry King December 5, 2007
The 7am hour that morning in which I interviewed the interviewer, Larry King. Plus Naomi Wolf and calls.
Nicole Sandler on 940 WINZ with Norman Lear – April 26, 2007
I joined WINZ as Producer of The Jim DeFede Show. Shortly after this interview, Jim left the station, and I moved into the host’s chair.
