Next week, Tim Aalders, the host of Buy Back America Radio will be on Pioneer Trek ... oh yeah, he'll be sweatin' it in the Wyoming desert. He is the head cook for over 400 people for four days! He's actually looking foward to it. In the meantime, I will move from co-host duties to host duties, just for the week. I've worked hard to put a good week together for our listeners and I wanted to give you a rundown, one day at a time. Here's Monday's show:

Host: Tim Aalders, but Candace Salima this week!

Monday, 18 July 2011

Host: Candace Salima

10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Pat, owner of Some Dude's Hobby Shop

We'll be discussing the challenges of small business in this economy!

11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Alafair Burke, Author of "Long Gone"

Alafair said: The idea for LONG GONE came during one of my regular early morning strolls through New York City's West Village. It was early 2009, when each cold day seemed to bring a new wave of unannounced and abrupt business closures. The familiar diner there on Monday would be replaced by an empty storefront on Tuesday. As I passed all those papered-over windows, I found myself thinking about the employees who had suddenly lost their jobs. I wondered what it would be like to show up at work one morning to find your entire professional life ... gone.

From that kernel of an idea emerged Alice Humphrey, a woman struggling to find herself at a layoff and eight months of unemployment. When she finally lands her dream job of managing a small gallery in the city's Meatpacking District, Alice is eager for a chance to make a name for herself beyond the shadow of her famous father, an award-winning and controversial filmmaker. The gallery's launch goes off without a hitch until the morning Alice arrives at work to find the gallery gone -- stripped bare as if it had never existed, vacant except for the dead body of the well suited corporate representative who hired her. Not only has her dream job vanished, but all evidence in the murder investigation points to Alice. When police discover ties between the defunct gallery and a missing girl, Alice knows she has been framed, and the only way to the truth is through a tangled web of high-tech conspiracies and long-hidden family secrets.

NYT Bestselling author Lee Childs says of LONG GONE: "She's got what it takes . . . Expertly shows that the most gripping drama is not found in the courtroom but in the places where choices get made in the shadows cast by politics and corruption and human desires."

Noon to 1:00 p.m. Cherilyn Eager

Former senatorial candidate Cherilyn Eager joins me at Buy Back America to talk land issues here in the state of Utah. We will continue this conversation on land issues on Thursday with Michael Swenson of the Utah Shared Alliance. But Cherilyn kicks the topic off.

With over 30 years of conservative political and media experience to her name, Cherilyn Eagar has prepared well for political election or appointment. Her qualifications have been demonstrated through decades of consistent strong work ethics and her support of principled values which have made this country so uniquely exceptional. She has served her community for several decades in charitable, family advocacy and conservative political activist roles.

With a lifetime of study and research, she is well-read on the daunting fiscal and social issues facing America today. Cherilyn has researched extensively on trade, immigration and 10th Amendment policies, as well as on education policy, and has presented nationally on free enterprise education reforms. She is a pro-life woman who has advocated for the traditional family and parental rights from the local to international levels. Having been raised in a medical family, she also understands the long-term negative implications of public healthcare reform, and advocates a “Reaganomics” policy vision that while criticized by naysayers, history shows it worked.

Cherilyn has served in leadership roles in Republican Women’s organizations and on non-profit boards. As President of Utah California Women and board member for many years, she raised funds for Special Olympics Utah. She currently serves on the Utah Federation of Republican Women Board. She is/has been a county and state delegate multiple times and has worked on many campaigns including Nixon (CA governor), Reagan (CA governor/President), Goldwater for President, Buchanan for President, John Ashcroft’s presidential exploratory committee, Bush 2004 and was on the Women for Mitt (Romney) committee in 2008, among other national political opportunities.

Cherilyn developed and produced a summer workshop training program in New York City for aspiring performing artists which trade paper Backstage rated among top two programs along with NYU’s CAP 21 program. She received highest ratings while on the faculties at the prestigious Orange County School of the Arts and at Brigham Young University. Cherilyn has succeeded in highest levels of the performing arts nationally, giving her a fearless and confident style. She has experienced the joys and sorrows and the successes and failures of life, as we all do. She knows the struggle of being a single mom, has learned that out of adversity comes advantage and from opposition comes opportunity, optimism and strength, and energetically shares this with audiences nationwide with subtle humor, extreme wit and lifelong relevance.

Cherilyn is Vice President of WebsTarget, a real estate Internet marketing company based in Salt Lake City. Her husband Randy Eagar is President of the company. He served as the 2006 President of the National Association of Realtors’ Council of Residential Specialists and is a popular national speaker/trainer and consultant. They have seven grown children and ten grandchildren.

Please tune in Monday morning at 10:00 a.m. MDT as I host my first show of Buy Back America.
