James Moore will interview Stephanie for his Planet Erstwild show which airs every Friday 2pm-5pm CST. Nationally syndicated progressive talk show host Stephanie Miller is a rising superstar in talk radio. Stephanie Miller

Ranked 36th in the nation this year by Talkers Magazine, the Los Angeles-based  Miller recently did a three-day stint at MSNBC in the wake of Don Imus' unsightly demise. She is a part of the Jones Media Network, the nation's largest independent radio network. Her average weekly listenership is over 1.25 million.

Steve Young calls the Stephanie Miller Show "the most entertaining political show in morning radio." 

Miller's father was a Republican congressman who unsuccessfully ran for vice president on Barry Goldwater's ticket. She has gone toe to toe with the likes of G. Gordon Liddy and others on the far right .

Raised Catholic and blessed with great comedic timing, keen politcal insight, sassy wit and a tight support team, Miller is a boat-rocker show-stopper with a heart of gold whose secret is she does great radio. She lives with two Great Pyrenees, Puff and Max.

Special thanks to Brandon Nelson for putting this particular ball in motion.

The interview will rebroadcast will be Monday morning May 21st at 7am.

Joerg Huettner founded "Saros" back in 1998 together with DJ Jan Osh as a Goa/Ambient project.

After 8 months of work they already had their first live gig in front of an enthusiastic crowd in December of the same year.

In 1999 first CD compilation releases followed on the German based label "Zoomia".

After Joerg relocated in 1999 he went on solo with "Saros", focusing more and more on ambient and downbeat tracks.

During this time the first album "reaching out to the other world" was released solely on MP3 websites --including MP3.com and peoplesound.com-- garnering many of rave reviews.

In 2001 and 2002 further CD compilation releases followed on "Waldorf Records", the label of the world famous Germany synth company Waldorf, as well as on Ceiba Records, USA, in 2003.

Call your Congressperson today to ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 2060 -The Internet Radio Equality Act. The bill reverses a recent decision of the federal Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) to nearly triple the amount of royalties Internet radio broadcasters pay to copyright holders for playing a song.

CRB Postpones Deadline As Web Radio Marches In D.C.
May 2, 2007

The Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) has officially posted its ruling on Internet royalty rates in the Federal Register. However, the organization has pushed back the due date for royalty payments to kick in, from May 15 to July 15. The publication of this information also allows the 30 day period for appeals to officially begin. NPR is slated to file an appeal in this time frame.

The SaveNetRadio organization calls the decision "welcome news for webcasters...artists...and listeners," and notes that it will "spend the next 45 days educating Members of Congress and their staffs about the incredible diversity of programming Internet radio offers us all. We will set the ticking clock back 45 days and continue the fight to free Internet radio from these devastating fee increases."

Yesterday (May 1), SaveNetRadio led a march on Washington, D.C., as webcasters, musicians and label representatives met with members of Congress to discuss the Internet Radio Equality Act. Further actions in the nation's capital are set for today.

The issues remain the same:
