Less than 24 hours from now, yours truly will be on the air as Wideawakes Radio (WAR Radio) begins streaming.
I can’t tell you how excited I am at the possibilities this concept has for me, for my readers, and for conservatives in general. At the moment, we’re trying to iron out some bugs in the stream as well as get everything prepared for the launch. But by tomorrow morning, the 230th anniversary of our nation’s founding, WAR will be here.
The plan tomorrow is to follow a loose schedule with hosts jumping in and out all day previewing their shows and introducing themselves to listeners. I will be on from 8:30 AM to around 10:00 AM Central time. I will be reading and discussing the Declaration of Independence – what the times were like when it was written as well as some thoughts on American exceptionalism and how that idea has been disowned by the left in recent years.
Not just the left of course. The Supreme Court has made a hash of American exceptionalism by interpreting the law not so much according to the Constitution as much as how their rulings will play in the salons of Europe. This takes the Declaration’s admonition of having “a decent respect to the opinions of mankind” to its outer limits as the Court subsumes American exceptionalism in order to advance theories of government that are both foreign and unwelcome.
It should be an interesting time and I hope you join me.
On July 5, “The Rick Moran Show” will premier at its regular time of 7:00 – 9:00 AM Central. Hopefully by then, we’ll have a way for you to stream the show using Internet Explorer. At the moment, the button on the left sidebar for accessing the stream only works in Firefox.
Ain’t the internet radio business interesting?

NOTE: THE STREAMING BUTTON DOES INDEED WORK IN INTERNET EXPLORER NOW. HOORAY!
