Radio Derb is on the air—go here to listen, here to download the MP3. A sample from the very end of the podcast:

I hope you are all anticipating as eagerly as I am next Friday's inauguration ceremony.

Before that comes round, though, we have Monday, Martin Luther King Day. Here's a suggestion, which I put forward with my usual diffidence for your consideration.

Suggestion: If Martin Luther King is worth a whole day, should we not spare at least one minute to listen to the guy who supplied most of King's oratory?

I think we should; so here, to see us out, is the Rev. Archibald Carey, Jr. addressing the Republican National Convention in 1952 — more than ten years before Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

I apologize for the poor quality of the recording, but you can hear the words plainly enough.

Oh, and should the word "plagiarism" cross your mind while listening to Rev'm Carey — shame on you!

There will be more from Radio Derb next week.
