A non-profit group representing atheists and agnostics filed a federal lawsuit this week calling on the IRS to prevent tax-exempt religious organizations from electioneering. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which advocates for the separation of church and state, says that failing to enforce the tax code allows churches to advocate for candidates and unfairly raise money for political causes. According to the group, American religious organizations receive more than one billion dollars in tax-exempt contributions annually. Congress barred churches from using tax-exempt funds for politics in 1954, but since then the IRS has only revoked the tax exempt status of one church.

Short Description: 
guess who's coming to radio??!!': the pre-emption version!

we at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' are actually going to be pre-empted at our normal hour (there is going to be a live broadcast with environmental journalist/author bill mcKibben)- however, we are STILL going to be on- just at a different time.

we are going to play a variety of artists we don't normally play on our show (aka non-afrikan artists) during these hours; it's still gonna be done our way though!  to keep it in the spirit of the 'election'/selection season, we are going to open up and dedicate a few songs to the experience (with an active-ist/'revolutionary' lean, of course).  we are going to round out the show with songs from our favourite albums of all time.
