Blue Jersey Radio – 2010 Year in Review

Each week, Blue Jersey Radio streams live with New Jersey’s latest political buzz, interviews with newsmakers, and your stimulating calls. And each year, we get to take a week off, and just listen back to some of our favorite shows.

So, like we did back in 2007 and 2008, and 2009, we invite you again to sit back, relax, and “click on the pix” to have a listen back to some of this year’s Blue Jersey Radio Year in Review:


In such a tumultuous year, we were privileged to hear directly from a number of our representatives in Congress, including first-time guest Rep. Donald Payne, and returning guests, our dear friends, Rep. Frank Pallone and Rep. Rush Holt, all three of whom will be returning to Congress in January. (By contrast, Rep. John Adler didn’t manage to squeeze us in this election year, and he won’t be going back. Coincidence?)
