Tune in Sunday night to KNUS AM 710 from 5 to 8 pm for Backbone Radio. Matt Dunn and Krista Kafer will hit the airwaves with fresh commentary on all things political and cultural.

We’ll have an important in-studio conversation with Kevin Miller about the political future of evangelical Christians. The author of “Freedom Nationally, Virtue Locally” questions to what extent the federal government should be involved in legislating virtue. In the aftermath of the 2012 election, Miller’s message is especially timely for the present moment in the culture wars.

We’ll discuss the President’s inaugural speech with its straw men, leftist priorities, and overwhelming partisan tone. Roughly half as many people watched the speech this time around. We took one for the team and tuned in.

You’re in for a musical tribute to Hillary Clinton’s testimony about Benghazi, with the Smiths’ song “What Difference Does It Make,” and another tribute to that pesky fly that walked over President Obama’s face this week with Hank Williams’ prescient “Fly Trouble.”

And what do Matt & Krista think about Women In Combat? Is it a good idea, or just another leftist experiment against reality? Meanwhile, Phyllis Schlafly is arguing against “free trade” in America. That’s a surprise.

Amidst the early posturing for 2016, we’ll discuss Senator Rubio’s immigration plans for the GOP, Governor Jindal’s plans for the GOP in general, and Senator Rand Paul’s impressive feistiness. Is anyone looking like a leader yet? Speaking of leadership, we noted that historian David McCullough rates Gerald Ford as one of America’s best all-time presidents. How so?

Closer to home, we’ll discuss the problem of rabbits chewing on cars parked at Denver International Airport, and the disturbing grime spree of Tide laundry detergent being shoplifted off of local supermarket shelves.

Don’t miss the hard-hitting commentary and groovy bumper music. Tune in to 710 KNUS or 1460 KZNT Colorado Springs or online at http://www.710knus.com from 5 to 8 PM. Your smart choice for Sunday night radio.
