We are pleased to announce that, on Wednesday, November 24th, CONK! News returns to live internet broadcasting on BlogTalkRadio.com with “CONK! Happy Hour”, a live weekly call-in radio show that will run at 5 PM Eastern / 4 PM Central every Wednesday at blogtalkradio.com/conknews
CONK! News Editor-in-Chief Jim Peters said, “We’ve been heartened by all the people who’ve contacted us asking when we were going to come back to the BlogTalkRadio platform. It turned out that under our present circumstances, doing a live radio show four nights a week was more than our current infrastructure could handle. But one afternoon a week we can definitely do.”
Peters expects this show to be more “loose” than CONK!’s flagship podcast, “CONK! Weekend” – “even though that’s pretty loose already. I expect we’ll have staff members just walk up to the mic to say a few words. And it’s ‘happy hour’ – so we might break out some booze. And of course, we’ll take your calls, on any subject. Maybe while a little in the bag….” Peters hosts, with CONK! “fulfillment journalist” Hank Reardon and other CONK! News Contributors making regular appearances.
“CONK! Happy Hour” kicks off on Wednesday, November 24th with a special Thanksgiving Week edition. This first live broadcast will also serve as the recording for this week’s “CONK! Weekend” podcast, which is normally recorded on Thursday afternoons. But with Thanksgiving falling on that Thursday, the recording of this live show will take the place of the pre-recorded Weekend podcast.
Listeners can hear the live feed of “CONK! Happy Hour” at CONK!’s home page on BTR at blogtalkradio.com/conknews and in BTR’s live directory for Politics at https://www.blogtalkradio.com/live/politics. Listeners can always call in during the show on CONK!’s Listener Line at 516-418-5472, and on off-hours they can leave a voicemail at conk.com/voicemail.
