The End of M&M Fridays…..
Regular listeners of The Power, Channel 169 on XM Radio, know that Mark Thompson’s show “Make it Plain” has just been cancelled there. This ends 19 years of Mark Thompson’s tremendous presence on both Washington DC and national radio and also ends, of course, M&M Fridays.
That’s too bad. For a year now, Mark Levine and Mark Thompson have had probably the most prominent radio show in the country that featured a white guy and a black guy co-hosting a political show and unafraid to openly discuss questions of race. Perhaps it can be reconstituted in the future. If you are an XM listener or have a comment on “M&M Fridays,” please feel free to leave it here.
UPDATE: Mark Thompson has been hired by Sirius to bring “Make it Plain” there. Congratulations to Mark! And we’re hoping we can resurrect M&M Fridays as well. Contact Sirius and ask them to hire Mark Levine. Mark Thompson will be on the Inside Scoop this Wednesday Oct. 17to discuss his future.
