Melon Radio SPECIAL EDITION – Veterans
I’ve got some exciting new for you. This Saturday we’ll be focusing on Veterans Issues in our Core Section and will be having an abundance of fantastic guests. In studio we should have Government Relations Director of the Northwest chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America, Skip Dreps.
Thanks to Skip, we’ve also arranged phone interviews with Congressman Norm Dicks and Senator Patty Murray!
We’ll be talking with them about the recent Department of Veterans Affairs hearings and a number of issues regarding US vets ranging from mental health to homelessness.
In our first hour, Walid Zafar (our International Correspondent) will be speaking with Professor of International Political Economy at the University of Puget Sound David Balaam about the world food crisis.
This should prove to be one of The Melon’s biggest shows yet, so be sure to tune in from noon to 2pm PST on 90.1 FM KUPS Tacoma or listen online here.
