—“The Lynn Rivers Show,” a new radio show featuring former U.S. Congresswoman Lynn Rivers debuts tomorrow on 89.1 WEMU. Here’s a description from Eastern Michigan U:

THE LYNN RIVERS SHOW: “The Lynn Rivers Show” debuts on WEMU (89.1 FM) Friday, Sept. 10, 8 a.m. The show, hosted by former U.S. Congresswoman Lynn Rivers, is an interesting and lively look at the historical, constitutional, and political dimensions of the events of today. More that the ‘here and now,’ the show will examine the ‘then and how’ of politics, policy, and government. During the first program, Rivers will discuss the USA’s long history of nasty political campaigning with guests Joanna Scott, political science professor at Eastern Michigan University; political archivist Doug Kelley, and Larry Kestenbaum who maintains the Web site politicalgraveyard.com. The program will air regularly on Fridays at 8 a.m., replacing the last hour of NPR’s Morning Edition. Call 487-2229.
