Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

You’re listening to — La Di Da — from a new CD called Blender. It’s the latest release from the band The Murmurs.

Murmur is comprised of Heather Grody and Leisha Hailey. And as they tour the country promoting their new CD, they are also using the opportunity to raise awareness about an issue that hits very close to home for the duo — that of domestic violence. In 1993, Heather Grody’s mother was killed by her husband.

At each city on the tour, the Murmurs have invited a local domestic violence shelter (who are receiving a portion of the concerts proceeds) to be on hand at the concerts to meet with the audience and help raise awareness about the crime of domestic violence.

Guests:

  • Heather Grody
  • Leisha Hailey
