The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly has a new home, WPVM LP 103.5 FM in Asheville, NC, where I now reside after 2.5 years in Switzerland! The show will air Thursday afternoons 2-4 pm, and you can listen live at wpvm.org or listen to the latest show anytime from the WPVM Archive (scroll down to the G’s for “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”). I will be blogging the show here, as usual.

WPVM, the Progressive Voice of the Mountains, is a fabuloso community radio station, a broadcast service of the Mountain Area Information Network, or MAIN. Check them out because they’re a non-profit ISP and webhosting service, and without them, WPVM would not exist. No matter where you are, they can host your website (or provide dial-up service in the US), and by choosing them, you’re supporting a new idea in progressive media, truly devoid of corporate aftertaste.
