Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow can stop the US Postal Service, well almost. With a $5.2 billion dollar loss last quarter, the US Postal Service has nearly exhausted its credit line with the Federal government. And it defaulted on a $5.5 billion payment two weeks ago, with another $5.6 billion dollar payment due at the end of this month that they won't be able to meet. Why? Many argue that big Government unions have enriched themselves at the expense of American taxpayers. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 when Al is joined by Mallory Factor, professor of International Politics and American Government at the Citadel. In his new book,Shadowbosses he points to the massive growth of public unions and how they are jeopardizing the fiscal health of the United States.

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
