In October of 1998, shortly after we signed Channel 103.1 on the air, a band called New Radicals released its one and only album, Maybe You’ve Been Brainwashed Too. It quickly became my favorite album of the year, with “You Get What You Give” my personal theme song.
Although the album was recorded under the New Radicals moniker, it was really a Gregg Alexander project. He wrote and produced all the songs and played most of the instruments. After YGWYG took off, Gregg shunned the spotlight, realizing he really hated the “rigamarole” that goes along with promoting a hit record.
He joined me in Studio C for a rare live interview and solo performance. Within a month, he had disbanded New Radicals and said he was leaving the business.
Thankfully, Gregg Alexander continues writing and producing, preferring to keep his genius more behind the scenes than out front. I’m grateful that I had this moment with him.
From May 3, 1999, my interview with New Radicals’ Gregg Alexander.

It's a big day here at the Nicole Sandler Show. First, today marks three years that I'm cancer-free; my lung cancer surgery was three years ago today. Second, I'm based in South Florida, where we're currently bracing for Hurricane Dorian to hit on Monday or Tuesday as a Category Four storm. I've done this dance too many times. Our guest today is Frank Schaeffer who, due to his father, has a perspective on the religious right that few others have. He'll tell about his background, and then explain what's so disturbing about Donald Trump's relationship with the evangelicals and how he's surrounded by "Jew-hating Christian Zionists"- perfect conversation to kick off your labor day weekend festivities!

It's another busy day on the Nicole Sandler Show. It's Thursday, so Howie Klein is here with some news about the DSCC following the lead of the DCCC in threatening to blackball all consultants and vendors who work with candidates other than the one they're pushing. We'll also check in with Denis Campbell, an American ex-pat journalist and author living in Wales, about the latest insanity from the UK...

The Nicole Sandler Show is headquartered in South Florida. Tropical Storm Dorian is headed our way and is expected to make landfall in the Sunshine State sometime Monday. Lucky for me, it looks to be aiming for a point a bit further north up the east coast. It's only coincidence that we're featuring Floriduh on today's show. First up, Broward County Commissioner Steve Geller, who chairs a new group called the "Real Solutions Caucus" who are pushing for anyone but Sanders or Warren as the Democrats' 2020 nominee. Then we'll move a bit higher up the food chain to speak with my Congressman Ted Deutch... talking impeachment, elections, guns and lots more.

This weekend, the DNC held its Summer Meetings in San Francisco, where the DNC establishment voted down a motion for a climate-themed debate in a couple of contentious days of debate and votes. An old radio colleague of mine, Matt Keating, is now a progressive activist, elected official and DNC member, who was there. He'll check in to tell us what happened.
Then, it's Tuesday, so GottaLaff is here to shoot the shit on everything happening in our crazy world.
