LightningRod Radio Network


As you may have noticed on the right side of the Lightning Rod Blog website, there is a BlogTalk Radio plug-in to play the last 5 shows of the LightningRod Radio Network.  One of the shows will be a Longmont Politics radio show LIVE on Friday nights at 9pm Mountain Time – with On-Demand shows available shortly after the show ends.

LightningRod Radio will also have a sports show twice a week, and a “Crossfire” type of show on Saturday nights.  Longmont Advocate podcasts from 2008 are slowly being added as well, as much of that information remains relevant in Longmonts political situation.  All of the info can be found at the LightningRod Radio website or at BlogTalk Radio.
