Tonight DaTechGuy on DaRadio goes to two hours for the first time!

Unfortunately our primary guest Lorie Byrd has taken ill and will not be able to appear tonight but Dan Collins of POWIP author of Was it something I said? has graciously agreed to fill in for her and the lovely and talented Roxeanne DeLuca will be joining us as well.

We will also be having our first ever panel at 10 p.m. during our 2nd hour. It will feature, Dan, Roxeanne, Libertarian Leanings and Justin Brooks of the Twin city Tea Party.

We also have a special guest in our 1st hour from the great state of North Carolina.

We will be talking about Reagan’s 100th birthday, the Grass Roots Conference, the situation in Egypt and the abortive attempt to repeal Obamacare

As always you can listen live at the WCRN web site and don’t forget that tonight Tom Wesley’s & John Weston’s show premiere at 6 p.m. followed by conservatively speaking at 7.

Even bigger Starting next Saturday Feb 12th week the show will be at its new morning spot. 10 a.m. EST till noon. For the month of February it will also be replayed at 9 p.m. that evening. I will be the final show in a series of Saturday Morning conservative talk starting at 6 a.m.

So keep it right at WCRN all night and all morning next week for the best locally produced conservative talk out there.

UPDATE: BTW we are live at the Double Tree Hotel in Milford Mass. Feel free to come down and visit.
