Call In To NORML's New Weekly Talk Radio Show

Washington, DC: This Saturday, September 5, will mark the debut broadcast of NORML's new live talk radio program, NORML SHOW LIVE: Marijuana Nation.

The streaming radio show will air original programming weekly from 9pm to 11pm Eastern Standard Time at: http://live.norml.org. NORML Outreach Coordinator Russ Belville, producer of NORML's Daily Audio Stash, will host the two-hour show, which will feature cutting edge cannabis related news and commentary – as well as live guests and phone calls from listeners.

Said Belville: "NORML SHOW LIVE intends to be the voice of the marijuana nation – the students, homemakers, retirees, soldiers, patients, and professionals who demand equal treatment under the law and for an end to America's longest and costliest war."

NORML's new live show will build upon the success of the organization's highly successful online podcast, the Daily Audio Stash. Launched in June, 2006, the Audio Stash is recognized as one of the web's most listened-to shows – averaging well over 250,000 downloads per month and consistently ranking among the Top 10 'most subscribed' podcasts ('government and organizations'), according to Apple Computer's iTunes Music Store.

"NORML SHOW LIVE will allow NORML, for the first time, to communicate live on the air with our listening audience," said Belville.

He added: "The timing of NORML's new live broadcast could not be better. Never before has the public's support and interest in marijuana – and in marijuana law reform – been higher. NORML SHOW LIVE: Marijuana Nation recognizes this trend and will cater to the growing market of cannabis consumers, businesses, and activists, and will enable the organization to bring our brand, message, and outreach to new and historic heights."

Scheduled guests for this Saturday's inaugural broadcast include professional mixed martial arts champion Toby "Tiger Heart" Grear, NORML Executive Director Allen St. Pierre; as well as NORML Deputy Director Paul Armentano, SAFER Executive Director Mason Tvert, and Steve Fox of the Marijuana Policy Project.
