Our guest this Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. PST is political activist, Felicia Tweedy. Felicia was born and raised in Southern California. A graduate of USC, she worked in politics right out of college, first on the Arnold for Governor campaign (Recall Campaign in 2003), the Governor's Transition staff and then as a political appointee of the Governor up in Sacramento. She switched gears in 2005 to be back in LA where she began working in the entertainment industry in the International Theatrical Distribution Department at Warner Bros.

Felica worked on the John McCain for President campaign and for a number of local candidates such as Sunder Ramani for Assembly. Active in leadership roles in a number of local and statewide Republican organizations, Felicia says  "Politics is my passion and where I feel my true calling is. I'm a proud Republican and I love my country." Felicia has been noted by many political and media leaders as a leading representative of the millennial generation, internet age, young conservative.

Currently, Felicia is the Southern California Grassroots Chair for the Newt Gingrich for President campaign. We'll get her take on the controversial testimony of Georgetown Law Student, Sandra Fluke, as well as the equally controversial remarks made about Ms. Fluke by radio commentator, Rush Limbaugh.

January 7th: LA Property Owner Nightmares

What if and what would you do?

Have you ever had a dispute with a Neighbor?
What if your Neighbor cut down the trees on your property?
What if the cut trees revealed your neighbor had unpermitted construction which extended onto your property?
What if you called in LA Building and Safety for help and they gave you and your neighbor a Notice to Comply for having unpermitted construction on your property?

Yes, you, a Notice to comply for having unpermitted construction on your property!

It does not matter that you did not built it; you get the notice and later a penalty of almost $1,900 for not getting a permit or removing it.

What if you were given notice that now the Notice to Comply was issued, you must bring your property up code to meet the requirements of the Hillside Ordinance and this would require a $350,000 retaining wall to protect your neighbor’s property from sliding down onto the home below?

Elected Officials, City Department Heads and Supervisors, Council Deputies, Attorneys, Judges and many more are a part of this injustice…

After a two year struggle and finding road blocks and challenges around every turn, this single mother of two is going to take her fight to the court of public opinion.

Join us Saturday Night as we take the first step in bringing Angela’s Story to the court of public opinion.

Angela will be an in studio guest Saturday Night at 8PM on Live LA Saturday with Frank Sheftel, Michael Higby and David Hernandez. Listen in and call in, we are live and local on the Web at LA Talk Radio.

You can call in and talk to Angela at 323 203-0815.

So get ready for a very spirited show!

Michael Joins John Phillips WEDNESDAY Night 11-23!

Radio's John Phillips
UPDATE: Michael's appearance has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 23rd @ 8pm PST

Our own Michael Higby will be hanging in studio with KABC's John Phillips on the talkshow host's weeknight show, Thursday, November 17th at 8:00 p.m.

John Phillips is the troublemaking host of "The John Phillips Show" on Talk Radio 790 KABC. Whether he is in trouble himself, (like for hatching a plan to bus bums out of Los Angeles) or making trouble for others (like exposing the deep craziness of the Octomom before anyone else) he’s always unrestrained, tactless, informative, and entertaining. There is nothing John loves more or does better than tell the uncomfortable truth about all the most fascinating— and sometimes shocking--- stories in the news. There are a lot of self-important people who are just begging to be satirized, and we are all exposed to a lot of smugly sanctimonious mass media. John sees it as his God-given mission to tear these people down!

Until they decided to give John his own show, making him the youngest major-market Talk Show host in the country, John was sports anchor and executive producer for "McIntyre in the Morning”, producer for "The Al Rantel Show", news writer for the KNX Morning News with Frank Mottek and Gail Eichenthal, and a guest host on virtually every show ever cancelled by KABC.

After earning a magna cum laude B.A. in Political Science from Cal State Fullerton and a MA in American Politics from Claremont Graduate University, John learned that he had no desire to produce meaningful scholarly research in political science, but was truly meant to be a piano player in the Bordello of Politics, a Talk Radio Host. As he told his graduate advisor, “The world has enough academics… I belong on the Radio.”

Michael will join John to cover whatever the news of the day is and knowing both John and Michael, there will be no sacred cows. Or chickens. Free range or otherwise.

Listen at 8:00 p.m. PST on KABC AM 790, listen live on the web or on your mobile device.
