Once Again It's On! Next on Afronerd Radio at 7pm 2nite: A Man's Tragic Encounter With a Real Life Hulk, Gaga Madness, Uganda's Gay Problem & More!
Salutations to our loyal listeners/readers (and consistent detractors)! We welcome you all to yet another "star trek" (or is it a fantastic voyage?) through Afronerd Radio! Join Team Afronerd tonight at 7pm as we shed light on the following newsworthy issues: a truly horrorific event involving a real life Hulk-a 33 year old African MBA is fighting for his life after trying to sell his luxury vehicle to a 6'8" thug; Lady Gaga's upcoming fragrance might just be called Blood and Semen...whoa; a Ugandan gay activist is murdered; Rush Limbaugh is at it again (trust me, he is no conservative brethren of mine...) by insulting China's president Hu Jintao. And to make matters worse, a Limbaugh supporter sends a racist fax to CA State Senator, Leland Lee...whew! Just an FYI...we will be in rare form this evening! A hint? The "Hulk" story serves as a perfect example of what can happen when the mid/upper tier crosses paths with a "no tier" person...nuff said!

Check Out Afronerd Radio's Mid-Week in Review Broadcast! Pt 2 of Ted Williams' Rise, More on the AZ Shooting, Radio Host Attacks MLK legacy & More!
Well we certainly do not want to do a disservice to our supporters/listeners when it concerns the dissemination of information through our weekly broadcasts. Unfortunately, we left a few topics on the table from our last show, so we intend to pick these issues back up for tomorrow's Mid-Week in Review airing. Join us tomorrow at 7pm (ET) as we use our special brand of analysis to wax poetic on the following topics: the Ted Williams story just keeps chugging along as Dr. Phil has successfully sunk his media fangs into the "homeless announcer's" neck; was the infamous AZ shooter a liberal or psychotic or both? Are the political parties jockeying for political access or taking the moral high ground; a pirate radio host has been speaking negatively about Dr. Martin Luther King and his legacy as we approach the holiday named in his honor and if time permits, an audio mash up relating to falling birds, Pres. Obama's flip flops and the passing of Jazz great, Dr. Billy Taylor...whoa! Again, feel free to call us "live" at 646-915-9620 or via email/IM-afronerdradio.com.

Breaking News! Of Course It's Afronerd Radio Sun at 7pm But We Must Talk About: AZ Shooting of Congresswoman, Ted Williams, Birds Dying & More!
We honestly had the intent to focus on the rise and continued rise of the golden voiced announcer/homeless gentleman, Ted Williams. It appears that our upcoming broadcast will also have to make room for an unconscionable act of terror involving congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords. If you haven't been residing under a rock the last 24 hours, I'm sure you have heard that there was a mass shooting at a Arizona store, where a town "meet and greet" took place between AZ politicos and their constituents. Upwards of 12 people (including a 9 year old child) were injured with Gifford being one of the victims. Join Capt. Kirk and yours truly tonight at 7pm to discuss the following: the aforementioned tragic AZ shooting....is this a result of the level of adversarial partisan politics that has reached an apex with President Obama's leadership?; more on Ted Williams' sudden rise to fame with golden voice and diction; why are the birds and fish dying in Arkansas (and beyond)?; should the racial epithet "nigger" (or is it nigga?...who knows nowadays) be removed from classic American lit like Huckleberry Finn?; the passing of Jazz legend and academician, Dr. Billy Taylor; President Obama and his vacation flip flops and if time permits, Oprah's latest OWN media cable project.....whew! Feel free to give us a buzz "live" at 646-915-9620 or via email/IMemail@example.com! And in rememberance to the victims of yesterday's AZ shooting, let's embrace the immortal words of one of my heroes, the indefatigable Adam Clayton Powell, Jr....Keep the faith, baby!
And then there's always Ted Williams....12 million views (before the original clip was removed due to copyright infringement) and rising:

Wow it's 2011! Time stops for no one and certainly not for the Afronerd broadcast team! Join Capt. Kirk and Dburt this Sunday at 7pm eastern as they discuss the following topics: more on Dburt partying like it's 1999 at Prince's Welcome 2 America concert this past Wednesday; thoughts on news anchor, Katie Couric's remark denoting that perhaps the development of an Islamic Cosby Show analog might assuage American prejudice toward Muslims; Conservative pundit/media personality, Tucker Carlson's belief that Eagles' quarterback, Michael Vick should have been executed; more on President Obama's recent signing of the repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell (DODT) policy as it relates to military personnel; predictions (or resolutions for 2011) and if we're lucky, a discussion regarding a grade school principal that developed a unique way to compel his male student body to stop wearing sagging pants (and it has something to do with a famous Afronerd). So stop by for a new show for the new year! Call us live at: 646-915-9620 or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
