Jaws of Justice Radio • April 19, 9:00am – 10:00am
This edition of JoJR highlights a case that is so outlandish as to be almost unbelievable and very much a product of the excesses of the war on drugs. Charlie Graham was implicated by police as part of a drug ring when David Alexander, a man he rented to, used that property to manufacture Meth. An explosion killed Alexander and injured Michael Duncan, the recognized Drug King of KC. This eventually led an overzealous detective/DEA agent to harass unmercifully Charlie and his family in his quest to find the money belonging to the Drug King. Even though Michael Duncan testified that he and David Alexander acted alone and there was no evidence linking Charlie to the drug ring he was convicted in a trial whose outcome was obviously predetermined.
Join host Jeff Humfeld and guest host Ricky Kidd as they air interviews with Charlie Graham and his wife Robin about the harassment and attempts to frame Charlie for a crime he did not commit and how all of this turned tragic just as Charlie was about to see some relief.Listen

Freeze Frame • April 16, 10:58am – 11:00am
The action thriller "Vanquish" represents the nadir in the distinguished career of Morgan Freeman. The Oscar-winning actor can't save this ridiculous, over-directed mess about a corrupt police commissioner who blackmails a skilled assassin, played by Ruby Rose, into conducting a series of bloody revenge crimes. Writer/director George Gallo uses every filmmaking technique in the handbook of movie cliches in an ill-fated attempt to shore up his terrible script. Absurd and sleazy, "Vanquish" manages to vanquish two hours of your time and innumerable brain cells.
"In the Earth" is a very creepy and unsettling paranoia thriller from noted British horror director, Ben Wheatley. Filmed during and inspired by the Covid-19 pandemic, the plot involves a pair of researchers who venture deep into the woods while the world around them is in lockdown due to a deadly virus. But there are some things that are even scarier in the woods. Wheatley plays on our current fears about the virus as well as our concerns about what’s happening in the natural environment. The cast is solid and Wheatley manages to squeeze more than you might expect from his very modest budget. It's smart and well-crafted, but "In the Earth" is an uneasy and awkward blend of art house horror and grisly midnight movie schlock.

Alternative Radio • April 14, 9:00am – 10:00am
Is Noam Chomsky an anti-Semite? How about Amy Goodman and Naomi Klein? The question may sound absurd. Yet, according to the definition of anti-Semitism that more than 30 countries including the United States under the Biden administration have adopted, Chomsky, Goodman and Klein could very well be labeled as such. Why? They are critical of Israeli policies. Zionism is the late 19th century Jewish national movement. The origin of the term is the Hebrew word “Zion” often used as a synonym for Jerusalem and Israel.
On the April 14th show, Anti-Zionism is Anti-Semitism is the motion debated at the Emmanuel Centre in London.Listen
