Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good afternoon, welcome to WMNFâ€™s Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up in a moment- the governor is getting married tomorrow in St. Petersburg and there will be a demonstration by groups that are angry that the Governor recently supported Amendment Two to Floridaâ€™s constitution which bans gay marriage here in Florida.
But first- three listener comments about yesterdayâ€™s program which featured a spokesperson for the National Association Of Broadcasters and three local broadcast engineers who were offering advice about the upcoming transition from analog to digital television. Hereâ€™s what some listeners had to say after the program.
A new groups seeking â€œmarriage equality for allâ€---called Impact-Florida is planning to hold a demonstration outside the First United Methodist Church of Saint Petersburg while Governor Charlie Crist marries his fiancÃ© Carol Rome tomorrow evening at the First United Methodist Church in downtown St. Petersburg tomorrow night.
Following the ceremony, the demonstrators plan to continue their vigil outside the wedding reception at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort.
We discussed the issue with two of the organizers of tomorrow nightâ€™s demonstration: Lorna Bracewell who is a local singer songwriter and Yasmin Jones. Both are with Impact-Florida.
