Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn

Backbone Radio - Dec. 2, 2012

December 2, 2012

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. If there is one core conviction that holds the Republican Party together, it is the view that the private sector — not the government sector — can save the economy.

If there is one prevailing certainty in the Mainstream Media, it is that no matter what happens in the approach to the Fiscal Cliff, Republicans shall take the blame for whatever happens next.

In our view, the above revelation should liberate the Republicans to just go ahead and be Republicans. In the choice between hanging together, hanging apart, or hanging tough on taxes — we know what we recommend.

Additionally, we’ll have two terrific guests: we’ll talk with Dave Kerber, recent candidate for Senate District 26, on the ugly campaign tactics used by the Left. After accusing Kerber and other Republicans of being pro-cancer this election, what will they do in 2014? It’s not like the Left can go any lower.

We’ll also hear from Jamie Gass of the Pioneer Institute about an important upcoming event on national education standards at Independence Institute on December 6th: Common Core’s Race to the Middle. What exactly is going on in our state’s schools?

We’ll take a look at Susan Rice and the alleged racism of her critics, we’ll assess the fate of Liberal Arts education at American colleges, and we’ll explore the meaning of the recent boomlet in secessionistic thinking. Plus we’ll offer some reflections on the Ken Burns “Dust Bowl” documentary, the apparently inverted “gender gap” in Colorado, and recent research on “gentlemanly behavior.”

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