There is a local radio show here in Phoenix that is as cool as it gets. Its called The Gutsy Geeks Computer Show. Michael Cady, Nick Coons and Richard "Mr. Modem" Sherman host the show every Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. on 1310 KXAM here in Phoenix. This week's show features your humble Editor-in-Chief as a guest. I have been on the show several times before and have always had a great time.

From The Gutsy Geek About Page:

If you think all computer shows are the same, think again! The focus here is Linux and Open Source computing. Not familiar with Open Source or Linux? Let the Gutsy Geeks tell you about this user-friendly alternative to Windows, why it's finding its way to millions of desktops worldwide, and how it can benefit you while saving you lots of money in the process!

The distinctive personalities and technical expertise of hosts Michael, Nick, and Mr. Modem (The Gutsy Geeks) create a unique chemistry that has appealed to listeners for years. The hosts' humor-laden banter and occasionally irreverent perspective on the world makes this one of the fastest 60-minutes in radio. Either that, or it will bore you to tears. Sometimes it's just too close to call.

Michael, Nick, and Mr. Modem draw from their many years of experience in all facets of computing and each week feature news and information about the world of Open Source and Linux.

The Hosts:

Michael Cady - Over 20 years ago, Michael crossed paths with a Timex Sinclair computer, decided it was love at first byte, and has been living and breathing technology almost ever since. Today, he is the co-owner of a local computer company (RedSeven), helped to found a PC-recycling charity (KidComputers), and is knowledgeable about all facets of computing. Michael is also the show's resident trouble-maker.

Nick Coons - Any computer show worth its weight in floppies needs a die-hard, fingers-to-the-keyboard geek, and Nick is Gutsy Geeks' Chairman of the Circuit Board. Nick began programming when he was eight years old and his passion for all aspects of computing has grown through the years. Nick's advanced networking and programming skills include DOS, Windows, Linux, and Unix. Whatever it is, Nick knows it and puts it to good use as CEO (with Michael) of the aforementioned computer company. Computing is such an integral part of his life, he even met a girl on the Internet who has since become his wife!

Richard Sherman - "Mr. Modem" began his computing career with a dual-floppy Zenith computer and monochrome monitor in 1981, and from that cutting-edge start, began writing about computers and the Internet. Today, he writes the nationally syndicated "Ask Mr. Modem" newspaper column, and is a featured columnist each month in Smart Computing magazine. As publisher of the award-winning "Ask Mr. Modem" weekly newsletter, Mr. Modem reaches subscribers in 38 countries and has a combined readership of more than three million readers each month. The author of eight books, his articles and columns have appeared in The Reader's Digest, Wall St. Journal, USA Today, Money Magazine, the AARP Magazine, and countless Web sites. Mr. Modem hosts the "Mr. Modem Minute" produced by FOX-TV, currently broadcast in remote outposts throughout the U.S. primarily in the coveted 3:00 to 4:00 AM time slot.

Gutsy Geeks (formerly PC Chat), which made its debut in August 2001, exists to educate, enlighten, and entertain listeners about Linux and Open Source.
