Tomorrow on the King Banaian Show 

The newly-constituted King Banaian Show (this still feels awkward and unnatural) continues tomorrow on KYCR, AM 1570, 9-11am with a replay Sunday 5-7pm. Please note that from the station's main page you can stream the show by clicking on the "Business1570 Listen Live" link on the right hand side of the page. I know a couple of people are saying they can't stream -- I know I can. (We're working on the podcasting part.)

This week we will visit with Ken Doyle, communications professor at the University of Minnesota, about his new book To Tax or To Ration: Medicare, Medicaid, and Our Long-Term Healthcare Crisis. The book's focus is on long-term care, and in particular its impact on senior citizens. While I've known Ken for awhile, I note his new bio refers to his profession as a financial psychologist. I am fascinated by what that could mean. He'll be on in the 10 o'clock hour.

We will also discuss the current economic and financial news from last week, what's coming up next week, and the impact of losing one's airline connection on a local community (following up on yesterday's Delta news, which was the headline in the St. Cloud Times this AM.)

Missed this last week: the new show gets some speculation from Saint Paul at Nihilist in Golf Pants. Regarding reason #1 for the real reasons I'm now on Business1570 -- the station expects to be at the State Fair with its own separate studio. Nothing keeps me from the State Fair. Not even buffalo.
