The day ahead on 90.7-FM

12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Verizon Challenges FCC’s Open Internet Rule From "Free Speech Radio News": "In Washington D.C. today, a federal appeals court heard a major challenge to the Federal Communications Commission’s three-year-old Open Internet Rule. The internet provider Verizon asked the court to toss out the rule entirely, saying it should have the right not only to charge websites for better and faster service, it should be able to block some content entirely. Both the FCC and public interest groups intervening in the case warned that this would encourage corporate censorship and favoritism, and stifle free speech and competition online. FSRN’s Alice Ollstein was in the courtroom Sept. 9. 2013 and brings us this report."
12:05 a.m.: Radio Stew: Football Soccer chants from Barmy Army, stories from Andy Griffith and Bill Cosby, a skit from the "M*A*S*H" movie, and songs from Mojo Nixon, Belle & Sebatsian, Queen, David Lynch, and others.

3 a.m.: Bob's Slacktime Funhouse: Anthrax Get suited up and be sure you follow all the anti-contamination HazMat protocols, because tonight we're going to be wading up to our eyeballs in killer microorganisms! Hell, it might be a good idea to coat yourself in Bag Balm before sliding into your moonsuit. Because yes, it's a special crossover episode of "Bob's Slacktime Funhouse." Through the scurrilous magic of Recombinant Comedy™, I team up with the less-than-willing Doktors of the Lymph Node Institute in a race against a pandemic that's wiping out all life on earth...but wait--! Is it possible that Doc Ellis and Doktor Bugbladder are actually the source of the deadly virus? Or is it merely a coincidence that the Institute is full hundreds of psychotic, infected lab monkeys? And yes, there are NO musical numbers by Anthrax in it.

5:30 a.m.: Radio News: NSA Surveilling Smartphones From "Free Speech Radio News": "In the latest revelations about US government spying, the NSA has the capacity to hack into smartphones, accessing vast amounts of data including call logs, contact lists, text messages and geolocation information. That’s according to Laura Poitras, who co-authored a report today in Der Spiegel based on NSA documents leaked by Edward Snowden. The NSA has developed specific teams to target certain companies or operating systems, such as Apple’s iPhone, according to the report. The documents, some of which Der Spiegel published, show examples of private photos and text messages that the US government accessed, such as an email sent by a Mexican government agency through a Blackberry encryption technology but intercepted by the NSA. For more, we’re joined by Barry Steinhardt, founder of Friends of Privacy USA. In a related update, Facebook, Google and Yahoo filed separate court motions today to allow them to reveal more details about the government’s surveillance program. The companies filed the motions in the government’s secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, asking the court to allow them to disclose information about the NSA’s requests for information. Currently, the tech companies are barred from revealing details about the requests."
