Today (1/7/15) on Radioactivity, we had one of the first radio interviews with entertainment lawyer, music producer,and independent US Senate candidate Steven Machat. Machat was born in Manhattan and attended the University of Miami as an undergraduate and Vanderbilt University for Law School. He has worked in an music industry as a lawyer, record label owner and manager for artists like Electric Light Orchestra, Ozzy Osbourne, Genesis, Phil Collins, Leonard Cohen, and Snoop Dogg.

Today he talked about his “Wheel Party” political philosophy, and his views on Donald Trump, Healthcare, and the Middle East.

We then had an interview with Jonathan Tasini, who recently wrote The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America,a book outlining the progressive views of the Vermont senator based on interviews and public records. Tasini will be making appearances at Inkwood Books in Tampa at 3pm and Edge of 9 in St.Pete at 7 pm on Friday.
