Another Disappointment: Trans-Siberian Orchestra Sponsors Rush Limbaugh

by Dick Mac

Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) is known for their amazingly spectacular shows that are popular around the world.  I know many people who have seen them repeatedly and can't get enough.  At least two of those friends are missing the current tour.  One of them already purchased tickets he is hoping to sell; but if not he feels as though it's a small price to pay to send a message to TSO.

What message? Play "Freebird"?  Nope!  Come to find out, TSO is a sponsor of the Rush Limbaugh radio show.

Limbaugh's popularity has plummeted, thanks not only to his insane life philosophy and political posturing, but also due to the efforts of the Stop Rush Limbaugh folks who have promoted a boycott of his sponsors in an effort to defund the monster.

Many many people dislike Limbaugh and disagree with him; but they are Americans.  Americans are unlikely to take any action, even on matters they support, because . . . well . . . that's now the American Way.  Be upset and angry but take no action.

You CAN take action if you like.  Start by "Liking" the boycott page on Facebook: and follow their campaign.  Eventually something will catch your eye and spark you to take action.  Just like this TSO revelation has sparked me.

Don't see the current TSO tour and tell them why.  Tell the venue that you are not attending because of their affiliation with Limbaugh.  Tell everyone!

So you can be clear about who is doing what, these two links discuss all Limbaugh sponsors and TSO's sponsorship activity:

Here is an example of what I write when I contact a radio station:
I rely on the media, especially the radio, to provide me with information about the world.
When a radio station decides to air something like the Rush Limbaugh Show I question their integrity.
Rush Limbaugh preaches hate and intolerance, he pits Americans against each other.
We need YOU to help stop his hate.  Please consider removing the Rush Limbaugh show from your line-up.
Thank you for your time.
