Attention online listeners:
- **PLEASE NOTE: Allan's WSJS weekday show (Mon-Fri 3-6 PM) and the weekend syndicated show (Rock Talk) are two separate and very different shows. Both shows can now be heard on WSJS.COM. For now, the Sunday show also airs on WSJS 3-6 PM (ET).
- Other radio Stations air the weekend show (ROCK TALK) at different times throughout the weekend. To make things easier for our WEEKEND STREAMING LISTENERS, we now stream continuously from 6pm Sunday to 10am Monday (ET) on USTREAM and host recent archives of the show there.
- Another great way to hear the show is with the free TuneIn App for your tablet or Smartphone. Just go to your favorite App Store and download. For a couple of dollars you can get the Pro version that allows you to record the show. Very cool.
- You can also find older podcasts of theAllan Handelman Show from over seven years of daily afternoon shows (4p-7p) on FM Talk WZTK. Plus this is where to hear the "Sunday Night" shows from most of the last 7 years up till March 2012 (Rock Talk with Allan Handelman)
- We hope this makes things a little more convenient than just offering two different airing times.

Joe's funny and engaging memoir, AN ATHEIST IN THE FOXHOLE: A Liberal's 8-year Odyssey Inside the Heart of the Right-Wing Media, describes a fascinating paradox: how did a self-professed "die-hard liberal" and atheist become a cog in the wheel of the most powerful name in conservative media?
Fresh out of college with a degree in Film and Television, Joe was eager for any job he could get in the industry—even if it meant Fox News. From his very first day there, Joe found the Fox newsroom to be an adrenaline-filled race to break a story, filled with salty news veterans and foul-mouthed young producers, all who became his comrades-in-arms. The job was challenging, and, despite the politics, he enjoyed working in the industry.
As the years wore on, Joe moved from the newsroom to working for Bill O'Reilly—Fox's number one talking head. During the week he honed conservative story pitches for O'Reilly from his desk next to Glenn Beck's and Sean Hannity's offices; on weekends he donated to Democratic candidates and learned how to comically deflect the inevitable "what do you do?" questions at liberal Brooklyn bars and parties. Soon he just couldn't take it anymore. So Joe did what any ambitious, career-driven person would do. He destroyed his career, spectacularly.
AN ATHEIST IN THE FOXHOLE FOLLOWS the arc of Joe's career and reveals the details of his final, frantic days at Fox. The memoir contains intriguing, surprising, and entertaining insights, including specifics about how Fox's right-wing ideology is promoted throughout the channel; who does (and doesn't) drink the ideological "Koolaid;" why specific angles and personalities are the only ones broadcast; and an inside perspective on all the channel's star anchors.
