Sirius XM To Air 'Spirit Of '76' Dramatic Special
September 16, 2009 at 3:47 PM (PT)
SIRIUS XM RADIO's MIKE CHURCH has created another original dramatic broadcast based on historical fact, this one inspired by the Founding Fathers and the creation of the Constitution. "THE SPIRIT OF '76" will premiere THURSDAY (9/17) at 9a ET on SIRIUS PATRIOT and at midnight ET on XM AMERICA RIGHT. CHURCH wrote and narrated the special and will host the world premiere at XM's WASHINGTON, DC studios. SIRIUS XM personalities JAY THOMAS (as JOHN ADAMS) and ANDREW WILKOW (as LUTHER MARIN of MARYLAND) will appear in the cast, and CHURCH has also created an animated film companion to the show.
"The Constitution is a plan of government, NOT a way of life. This is useful information to recall when your Uncle Ernie and Aunt Praline are finding universal health care, endless supplies of paper money and the takeover of car companies in the Constitution," said CHURCH, whose daily talk show airs on SIRIUS PATRIOT and XM AMERICA RIGHT. "The bogus claim that no one can know 'the original intent' of the Founding Fathers is as false as the day is long. THE SPIRIT OF '76 will put you in a chair right next to JAMES MADISON, BEN FRANKLIN and PATRICK HENRY as they explain what the Constitution does and more importantly does not say."
