For this minor milestone, the show was a little different. In the recent July4th special episode I played a rock version of our national anthem by Madison Rising, and for this episode I was proud to have two members of the band join me. We discussed how they came to record these patriotic themed songs, and how the liberal entertainment industry has reacted to their obvious right-wing messages. Of course the show included a number of tracks from their album.
Madison Rising‘s self-titled debut album was released in October 2011. The band – with Dave Bray on vocals, Alex Bodnar and Christopher Schreiner lead guitar, Steve Padelski on bass and Sam Fishman on drums – makes guitar heavy rock music with a distinctively pro-American message and sound. The overarching theme of the band’s music is that of liberty, independence, smaller government, and personal responsibility. Madison Rising believes that they can help revive patriotism and use their music as a way to get today’s youth more excited about politics.
