Air America Finds A Buyer; Franken Out, Hartmann In

Air America Radio has found a buyer, Al Franken will do his final show in mid-February, and Thom Hartmann will take his spot in the afternoon lineup, according to a report from USA TODAY.

The new buyer is reportedly Stephen Green, a real estate developer from New York, whose brother Mark has been a frequent guest on the network.

Therefore, without further ado:

Rock On, Air America Radio!
Rock On, Stephen Green!
Rock On, Thom Hartmann!!
and Sayonara, Al.

and (of course) a lyric by Joe Rapposo
It's Not Easy Bein' Green
It's not that easy bein' green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red or yellow or gold
or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy bein' green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over
'cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
or stars in the sky

But green's the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean
or important like a mountain
or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why,
but why wonder why? Wonder,
I am green and it'll do fine,
it's beautiful!
And I think it's what I want to be.
Best wishes to Stephen Green, Thom Hartmann, and Air America Radio!!
