Update: You can listen to the podcast of the show by clicking here.
So I got a request from Steve Deace to appear on The Deace Group round table on Friday (February 19) as Ted Sporer’s stand-in.Â I was a bit surprised since I’ve never actually been introduced to Steve face-to-face (we are friends on FaceBook, but then again other FB friends Bill Northey, who I’ve actually spoken with at length and who attends the same church I do, and all three Republican gubernatorial candidates whom I have at least shaken hands with) but I have exchanged messages and even called into his show recently (he actually said “Art’s right”… got it on a podcast).
But, I am honored and look forward to the fray.Â This quickly after ending my radio show on Des Moines Local Live is just too funny, and thankfully a one-time deal.Â The show (for those of you who aren’t familiar with Steve) is on WHO 1040 AM radio from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.Â I believe this segment will be either in the 5:00 or 6:00 hour.Â I will provide the podcast once it’s available (probably late Monday).
I know that Jonathan Narcisse (I’ve actually gotten to know Jonathan) will be there as usual, and I’m not sure if Alan Koslow will be or not… he recently returned from a mission to Haiti.

Since we tried to have a show with Jonathan Narcisse a couple of weeks ago and had a “technology fail”, the former Des Moines School Board member and possible candidate for Governor of Iowa will join us again!Â We will spend two hours talking about his campaign and his vision for Iowa.
This will also be the last episode of The Conservative Reader Report, at least for now.Â I need to rework my priorities, and as much as I truly enjoy doing this show, I’m just doing too much.Â But fear not, the blogs will benefit as I have more time to focus on writing.
Tina Johnson will be taking the 3-4 slot and Jeff Bratz, whose show follows mine, will be adding an hour to his show and will be on from 4-6.Â Des Moines Local Live rocks, and I hope you will continue listening to the great local and live content that is being provided there!
