Dallas’ premiere radio show, The ANE Show, is no stranger to special guest stars. However, this week’s special guest is bound to make any Texan excited. The gang will be joined by Texas country singer, songwriter, novelist, humorist, politician and former columnist for Texas Monthly, Kinky Friedman.
Mr. Friedman styles himself in the mold of popular American satirists Will Rogers and Mark Twain and was one of two independent candidates in the 2006 election for the office of Governor of Texas, stating “Musicians can run this state better than politicians. We won’t get a lot done in the morning, but we’ll work late and be honest.”
Kinky Friedman’s stance on issues is definitely quote-worthy as he uses humor to make his points. On capital punishment he summed up his position by saying, “I am not anti-death penalty, but I’m damn sure anti-the-wrong-guy-getting-executed. The system is not perfect. Until it is perfect, let’s do away with the death penalty.” He also supports the decriminalization of marijuana, though he doesn’t advocate making its sale legal. “I’m not talking about like Amesterdam. We’ve got to clear some of the room out of the prisons so we can put bad guys in there, like the pedophiles and the politicians.”
Having Kinky on the show is definitely going to make for an entertaining hour you don’t want to miss. Be sure to tune in, Saturday at 9am on 1190AM KFXR in Dallas or on iHeart Radio.
