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 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.
