The Rickey Hendon Show

Live Every Saturday from 4 – 6 pm (CT)

Senator Rickey Hendon and his son Rickey Q. Hendon bring unique takes on all things politics here on WCPT every Saturday from 4-6 pm! They alternate each week with one fully hosting the show one Saturday, and the other taking over the hosting duties the next week.

Their guests are wide-ranging in nature including politicians, consultants, artists, doctors, and of course your everyday people. Both Rickeys take pride in inviting guests from all sides of the political spectrum despite being on progressive talk radio.

“We feel like if we don’t hear from people who disagree with us we’ll never learn what’s outside our own bubble. While our conservative-leaning guests can sometimes get an ear full from our callers we always keep it respectful, productive and focused on how to build a better society.”

-Rickey Q. Hendon
