America's Tea Party Head Gets The Vote Out On America's Funniest Web Radio Station

Share Article

Michael Alexander founded the first and most active Tea Party chapter in America - the Pasadena Patriots, aka TeaPac. He has teamed with cutting-edge Internet radio station RadioTitans.com -home to a free-wheeling range of shows hosted by top comedy stars and media figures - to create a new weekly show that he hopes will break the Party's stereotypes and win over young voters.

Michael Alexander has never been afraid to speak out against the things he finds wrong with modern America. But as the founder of TeaPAC, America’s first and most active Tea Party chapter, he has done a lot more than merely complaining. Rather, he has helped shape a movement that has radically transformed American government.

But now that he has helped conservatives take over the House of Representatives and has also helped turn the current presidential election into a much closer horse race than anyone ever expected, Alexander is ready for a whole new battle. He’s out to educate a new generation of American voters and win them over to the conservative cause – and he’s doing it with the cutting-edge help of America’s hottest new Internet-radio station.

With his show “Tea Party Radio with Michael T. Alexander” (http://radiotitans.com/shows/tea-party-radioAlexander ) is able to express himself fully and at length, without the spin and distortions of the mainstream media clouding his message. His free-wheeling, hour-long Sunday night show airs from 7 to 8 p.m. PST and jumped out of the gate last month on the website of Radio Titans (http://www.radiotitans.com), an Internet-radio station with a strong focus on comedic and politically-oriented programs.

A native Californian and founder of TeaPAC, Mike grew up in Huntington Park and knows Los Angeles and the solutions to get that troubled city back on track. He is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and a graduate of U.S.C. Law School. Together with his wife, Patricia, he is a founder and managing principal of Private Trust Management Group based in Pasadena. Mike and Patricia live in Pasadena where they are involved in a variety of business, professional and community activities.

Mixing his own take on the week’s news with panel discussions and guest interviews from the conservative and Tea Party communities, Alexander has broken the stereotype of Tea Party members as closed-minded and lacking in pop cultural savvy and humor. And in teaming with Radio Titans, he sees an opportunity to share his message rapidly, nationally and even globally.

“Ronald Reagan was known as the ‘Great Communicator’ because he excelled at bringing his message to all the people in a way they found interesting and relatable,” says Alexander. “But too often, our current politicians have lost that skill, and as someone who’s always found himself being the guy people notice in any room, I decided to make the World Wide Web the next room I entered. We’re going to make sure new conservative voices are heard in bold new and entertaining ways.”

Founded by Carl Kozlowski and Jake Belcher, Radio Titans grew out of their success with the long-running podcast “Grand Theft Audio” – a show they created with Brant Thoman. “GTA” was termed “’The View’ for dudes” in a glowing Los Angeles Times article (http://articles.latimes.com/2011/jun/10/entertainment/la-et-night-comedy10-20110610 ), which also labeled the show as “magic” and “very funny.”

Seeing an opportunity to capitalize on such high praise, Kozlowski and Belcher opened their Hollywood-based studio in June. Since that launch, Belcher and Thoman have turned “GTA” from a weekly Thursday night show to a daily entertainment juggernaut airing from 9-11 a.m. PST that is the flagship program of Radio Titans, with Kozlowski sitting in most Fridays as their entertainment correspondent and sidekick. The Howard Stern-style show frequently features the station’s biggest celebrity guest stars and has plenty of funny political discussions of its own.

Kozlowski, meanwhile, has created his own pair of new shows: “Kozversations,” in which he uses his 16 years of experience as a professional journalist to conduct in-depth, Larry King-style interviews with luminaries from the worlds of comedy, film, television, politics and books; and “The Koz Effect,” a Bill Maher-style political panel show in which a team of rotating correspondents and a special guest comic tear apart each week’s news.

In fact, “Koz Effect” airs right after Alexander’s program on Sunday nightsfrom 8-9 pm PST, providing a one-two programming punch of politically oriented shows to wrap up the week for listeners. This Sunday features a special pre-election show, with fellow Radio Titans host Bil Dwyer (“The Tonight Show,” Comedy Central’s “Battle Bots”) and Jimmy Dore (two Comedy Central hour-long standup specials of his own) as special guests.

“It’s been a wild and very fun ride taking on the challenge of creating one of the top stations in the most cutting-edge form of communication there is, Internet radio,” says Kozlowski.

“And having Michael Alexander come aboard to share his insights with us and a national audience is an exciting opportunity,” adds Belcher. “And we’re always looking for more great hosts with great show ideas, so contact us at http://www.radiotitans.com.”
