An all-new Independence Day program from Jerry Stewart, “The Song of Freedom”

Jun 13, 2019

Monday, July 1 and Tuesday, July 2 at 8:06 AM ET
SES-2, SR 2-Unity Receiver

Monday, July 1 at 8:06 AM ET
XDS Receiver, V01 Netcue for local break

This special holiday program, “The Song of Freedom”, is a powerful patriotic program that will make your listeners proud to be Americans. The show will feature the stories of our nation’s struggle for independence with quotes from our founding fathers and unbelievable true stories of their great sacrifices for our America. There will also be much fun in the program as Jerry tells some wacky true stories in our nation.

This special feature is formatted for a 1 hr time slot – actual length is 44 minutes.

Some of what you will hear in this special program:

  • When is the last time you thought about what it must have been like that 1st July 4th in 1776? There was truly much excitement by the colonists, but there was also so much to consider. Our handful of patriots were about to go to war with the most powerful military force in the world at that time. You will hear that story with words from those who were there.
  • You will hear the story of patriot Samuel Huntington and how some have come to believe that he, not George Washington, was our first U.S. president. Sounds crazy, but take a listen to the facts.
  • There are so many ideas and inventions that have started right here in America. For example, how did we come to have baseball in America? Did you know that it was invented by a Union officer, Abner Doubleday, while he was fighting in the Civil War? There are other inventions to talk about like hot dogs, and pink lemonade. The stories behind these two will truly make you laugh out loud.
  • And then there is Old Glory – our beautiful flag. Hear some thoughts about our flag.
  • Finally, we will take a hard look at the present condition of our country as it relates to two of our foundational rights as human beings – the first, the right to life, the second, the right to worship God without any interference or restrictions from our government.

This program follows the SRN Talk Clock. For questions regarding the program call Jerry Stewart at 360-961-5587.

Salem Christian formats moving from Wegener to XDS receivers in 2019!

Apr 4, 2019

Salem Radio Network and Salem Music Network

will be upgrading our Christian programming platform

from satellite to IP (internet) and will be upgrading our receiver fleet

in mid-2019 to the XDS platform.

Your current Wegener satellite receiver will be replaced and upgraded to an XDS Pro receiver that will be fed completely from the internet (IP). Salem will continue broadcasting on the current Wegener satellite platform while migrating to our new XDS IP receivers and expect to end our SES-2 Wegener satellite feed in early 2020.

***This change will affect current Salem Wegener affiliates (Christian on SES-2) and NOT current Westwood One XDS (General Market on SES-11) receivers.***

This improved system operates over internet protocol (no satellite) and requires only an internet connection to schedule and receive programming. Your station will no longer need a satellite dish or antenna hardware to receive Salem’s Christian network feeds. Our new XDS receivers give you the ability to record and playback all programming. They fully integrate and provide control of local automation systems. Full control of programming is maintained by your station thanks to web-based scheduling. And maybe best of all, terrestrial or weather interference (sun outage/rain fade) is eliminated.

Salem will replace your current Wegener receivers with new XDS Pro receivers beginning mid-2019 with a hard-switch planned for fall 2019. We will continue to simulcast on our current Wegener satellite platform until early 2020.

Salem’s receiver-swap program will begin mid-2019.

Current affiliates MUST submit an XDS receiver request on our web form at

Check with your SRN/SMN Affiliate Relations representative, ministry programmer, or email for more information.

The Bob Zadek Show

Mar 21, 2017

Bob Zadek is the host of The Bob Zadek Show, the longest running libertarian talk show in California – broadcast live on 860 AM, KTRB – The Answer (as well as 1380AM in Sacramento and 1590 in Seattle), every Sunday at 8am.

Bob talks about the issues that affect our lives on a daily basis from a purely libertarian standpoint. He believes in small government, fewer taxes, and greater personal freedom.

America has lost its way, but it cannot and does not need to be reinvented. Our founders were correct about their approach to government, as were John Locke, Adam Smith and the other great political philosophers who influenced them. The country’s first principles are economic and social freedom, republicanism, the rule of law, and liberty. Bob believes we must take the best of our founding principles and work from them because a country without principles is just a land mass.

He recently released an ebook of his best interviews, Secret Sauce: The Founders’ Original Recipe for Limited American Democracy, featuring insights from eight top scholars on where the American experiment with constitutionally-limited democracy went wrong.

Bob has been practicing finance law for 50 years, is listed in “The Best Lawyers In America,” and has been awarded the highest rating for Ethical Standards and Legal Ability by Peer Reviewed Martindale Hubbell. He holds a law degree and a Master’s degree in Law from NYU School of Law and is a Charter Fellow in the American College of Commercial Finance Lawyers, Past President of the Association of Commercial Finance Attorneys, Past Chair of the 1,500 member Commercial Finance Committee of the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association, and Past Chair of the California State Bar UCC Committee.

He has been retained as an expert witness in more than 25 cases dealing with finance law. As an entrepreneur, he created and now manages Lenders Funding LLC, which makes and participates in loans to small business.

Bob’s passions are American history, entrepreneurism, libertarianism, and his number one fan and significant other Anne.

Featuring Top Constitutional Scholars & Economists:

  • Donald J. Boudreaux of Cafe Hayek
  • Thomas Fleming, author of over 50 fiction and non-fiction history titles
  • William Maurer & Clark Neily III of the Institute for Justice
  • Alex Nowrasteh of the Cato Institute
  • Ilya Somin & Todd Zywicki of George Mason University’s economics department and law school
