Jazzy – Always Smiling

Dear Jazzy Girl, my best friend and companion,

We figure you were about sixteen-and-a-half when you passed away on Monday. I don’t need to tell you about the immense number of people whose lives you touched over those years. You were there and you had that experience, conscious for every moment, until your final day. What you may not know, is the impact you had on the world – because you were good. I wanted to tell you why you were so special.

Did you know we may never have...

Best NH BLM Speech So Far: Keene Native Alani Besson

August 7th, 2020 - 6:00pm by FTL_Ian in

At the rally in Central Square on June 13th, Alani Besson, a Keene native, calls out the Keene police and Cheshire sheriff for pandering to the first Keene BLM event and delivers the best speech thus far in all the New Hampshire Black Lives Matter events I’ve attended.

Thank you to Dave Kirkpatrick from “November and Beyond” for the video!

Nicole and David Lheureux in Plymouth.

David Lheureux wasn’t expecting to be a protest leader, however he couldn’t ignore our freedoms slipping away and decided he was going to do something about it. This Spring, the self-described “gearhead” created “8.3L”, or “Eight Point Three Leader” , named after a six-wheel military truck used to pull big trailers. I spoke with Lheureux by phone this morning and asked him about the vehicular mascot. He told me, “Engine heart of vehicle, we need to...

Trans Candidate Files for Cheshire Sheriff as Republican, Taking on Incumbent

July 23rd, 2020 - 12:08pm by FTL_Ian in

Aria 4 Sheriff Sign Longtime democrat Cheshire county sheriff Eli Rivera better look out – there’s a new challenger this year in the form of “the Anarchist Shemale”, Aria DiMezzo . In 2018 she ran as the libertarian candidate for Cheshire sheriff in a three-way race against multiple term incumbent Rivera and his longtime losing republican opponent, Earl Nelson. This year, 2020, Nelson did not file and Aria, who’d been planning to run for state rep as a republican decided instead to file in the sheriff’s race. It’s going to be epic, for sure! Stay tuned to Free Keene for the latest.

Here’s a ...

Good morning from Roger’s Campground ! If you’ve been reading Free Keene over the last week you’ve seen some excellent Forkfest/Porcfest video blogs from Derrick J. I’ve been so busy, it’s been hard to find time to do much of anything besides record my daily talk radio show and hang out with people here at Roger’s during...

Heading to Forkfest?

June 20th, 2020 - 5:36pm by FTL_Admin in

As you may have heard, some people are starting their Forkfest on Monday June 22nd instead of waiting for June 29th, which is the originally-promoted start date. Now that the Porcupine Freedom Festival has scaled back a bit, there's no longer a prohibition on camping at Rogers without a Porcfest ticket, which means that Forkfest can now happen during the Porcupine Freedom Festival, so that's what we're doing - going for a full two weeks. Will you be coming up anytime between Jun 22nd and July 5th? If so, we'll see you there.

If you'd like to connect with other Forkfesters, you can link to the unofficial Telegram chat and Forum at

See you there, I've gotta get packing! Ian

VIDEO: Keene Police Prove it’s Business As Usual By Targeting Peaceful Nightcap Event

June 14th, 2020 - 11:51pm by FTL_Ian in

KPD Officers Tim Richmond and Jake Laporte, just following orders.

For a dozen weeks, Keene police have ignored the weekly “Nightcap” events that have happened in Central Square, Fridays starting at 11:59pm. I had no reason to continue writing about the events here because they were a success – peaceful people having a quiet party in the Common, unmolested by...

Cigar Dave ending his radio show after 25 years is an opportunity for FTL. :: New :60 Promo

June 14th, 2020 - 12:59am by FTL_Admin in

Longtime weekend syndicated talk show host Cigar Dave is retiring after twenty-five years of doing his show. That means there will be new opportunities for Free Talk Live to add new stations as they are going to be looking for new content over the next couple of weeks. So, if you know if your local talk station carries Cigar Dave, this week would be a great time to reach out to the program director via phone or email and tell the PD that you want to hear Free Talk Live. Program Directors rarely get positive comments so your request will be conspicuous. If you need help finding contact information for your local talk station, please post on the FTL forum .

Also please do help us Advertise, Market, and Promote FTL to new radio stations by joining the AMP program. Thanks to our AMPlifiers, we've gotten on over 190 radio stations and in fact just this weekend are welcoming KWPM-AM/FM in West Plains, MO and K-News 98.5 KWWV-HD2 in San...
