A new online conservative talk radio premiered in Beaufort on Tuesday, August 10th called “Southern Sense”. Operated by Jani and Ann Ubelis of Lady’s Island, they launched the new site with the intention of giving the Low Country and South Carolina a voice. For their first show they interviewed Judge Murray M. Silver, retired of Hilton Head. Judge Silver was a prominent civil rights attorney in Atlanta and appointed to the bench by President Jimmy Carter. He is the author of the book, “Daddy King and Me” and the online blog, “LegalEagle”. Judge Silver’s book is currently on sale at Bay Street Traders where he will be signing his book on September 12th from 2pm to 4pm along with Lenny McAllister, author of “Diary of a Mad Black P.Y.C. (Proud Young Conservative)”. Both Judge Silver and Lenny McAllister will be guest speakers at the Beaufort Tea Parties September 12th Rally in the Henry C.Chambers Waterfront Park at 1pm. Details of the event can be found on Tea Party web site at http://BeaufortTeaParty.webs.com .
Through online social networking Ann Ubelis has built a following which encouraged her and her husband to start the radio program. She credits this networking for giving her the opportunity to meet people such as Judge Silver and Lenny McAllister. This Tuesday, August 17th, “Southern Sense” will interview both Jane Kenny of the Bluffton Tea Party and Rowena Booker of the South Carolina Black Conservative Movement together. Ms. Ubelis is co-founder of the Beaufort Tea Party and it’s web master, which will make Tuesday’s program fun and interesting. Starting Friday, August 20th “Southern Sense” will initiate “Freaky Friday” where they will take caller and allow people to speak out on the weeks events, opinion pieces and prominent issues. Callers can reach the show at 917-889-3675 during their broadcast times. To listen in go to http://www.BlogTalkRadio-southern-sense from 2pm to 3pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. Don’t worry if you can’t tune-in live. Simply go to the web site at anytime and you can listen at your leisure or download it to iTunes or your iPod.
What’s in the future? Jani & Ann Ubelis are hoping to reach out to local musicians and authors to feature their original works on the program. Anyone interested can reach them at SouthernSense@hotmail.com .
