Happy Wednesday everyone! Here’s what we’ve got scheduled for NCMN tomorrow morning! Be sure to check out the links and leave comments if you have any questions! Also, don’t forget that you can call in to talk to Scott during the show or send him an e-mail at and you can listen to the show online at!

Eddie Davis, former president of the N.C. Association of Educators, is lobbying the state to, “end a moratorium on new statues and monuments at the state Capitol so the antebellum building can reflect the contributions of American Indians and blacks to the state’s heritage,” as reported by the News & Observer on Monday. We’ll have Mr. Davis on bright and early at 6:10 to talk about his goal of incorporating a “Hall of Inclusion” at the Capitol.

At 7:40 we’ll have a local spin on reality TV – Danny Barclay, Duke graduate who now lives in California and is featured with his wife on the show Househusbands of Hollywood. He and Scott will talk about the family dynamic of being a “househusband” and what it’s like doing the show.

Will “Big Beer” be the next industry to be investigated for violation of antitrust laws? Rob Cox, editor of, writes in “Breaking Up Big Beer” for that “with both Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors, raising prices at the same time, during a recession, and while beer demand is slumping it almost begs for an antitrust review of the industry.” Hear what else he has to say on the subject at 8:10.

We’ve saved the biggest guest for last with an interview with Rodney King at 8:40. He will be boxing former Pennsylvania PD officer, Simon Aouad, to headline Celebrity Boxing 11 on Friday, Sept. 11 in Essington, PA. From the press release: “I know some people will see the irony here,” said Rodney King about boxing a police officer.  “But I would have fought anyone who was worthy.”
