Time To Lift The US Embargo On Cuba?07/29/09 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good afternoon. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Welcome to Radioactivity. Coming up weâ€™ll look at the question of whether it's time to re-open trade between the US and Cuba. Weâ€™ll hear from a Tampa City Council member and a Tampa Port Authority member who travelled to Cuba last week.
But first some listener comments about yesterdayâ€™s program. On the open phones portion of yesterdayâ€™s program several listeners wanted to talk about the recent arrest of Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates by Cambridge, Massachusetts police.
Last week Tampa City Councilwoman Mary Mulhern and Tampa Port Authority Commissioner Carl Lindell returned from a four day, unofficial fact-finding trip to Cuba. They traveled with a group of about two dozen business people, hoping to lay the groundwork for trade between Tampa and Cuba, if and when relations between the two countries improve.
For more information: Mary Mulhern or 813 274-7071.
