Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Monday) | Listen to this entire show:

Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up today: St. Petersburg Times reporter Ivan Penn has a powerful piece in Sunday's Floridian about his trip to the Middle East with a group of American and Palestinian performers who carried the message of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It's titled "A Long Road to Understanding" and illustrates how the message of nonviolence is supposed to be universal, but is not easy to deliver in a part of the world that has become synonymous with sectarian conflict. Ivan joins us now along with his wife September Penn who served as the music director on the tour.

Excellent piece Rob… But I have to say also that Carson’s play was hijacked!!! But he went it… and that’s his call.
