Actor/producer Kerry Wallum and country music artist Clay Canfield are guests March 25 on my DC Update edition of My Technology Lawyer Radio as they describe how they’re using their talents to oppose slaughter of wild horses for meat.

Listeners can access the show nationwide beginning at noon (Eastern Time) via the Live! link, which enables call-in and also archives all shows.

Canfield, who recorded the smash hit “Wild Horses,” is visiting the nation’s capital to sing the song as part of two-hour protest concert outside the White House at Lafayette Park shortly after the radio show.  He is working closely with his friends Wallum, actor-singer Willie Nelson and the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) to protect America’s wild horses by supporting legislation in Congress.

Wallum and Nelson recently announced formation of Luck Films, an independent production company based in their native Texas.  Its goal is important entertainment and documentary films independent of the big-dollar studio system.  Nelson recently gave his views on wild horse and burro protection:

I’m a little prejudiced when it comes to horses.  I have always loved them.  I currently have about 68; 25-30 were rescued directly from slaughter.  I got involved eight years ago, when AWI first made me aware that American horses are being slaughtered and shipped overseas for human consumption.  It’s a shame horses ─ or any animal ─ be treated this way when horses are the foundation of America….Folks, please join my family and friends at the Animal Welfare Institute to see how you can help with this important American cause.

I cohost Update with business radio pioneer Scott Draughon, the show’s founder.  We begin the show with an overview of Washington policy news affecting the nation’s business, politics and quality of life.  Topics this week include a special report on the best-selling memoir by former Bush adviser Karl Rove, Courage and Consequences: My Life As A Conservative In The Fight.  As a listener advisory:  Mac listeners need the tool “Parallels” to enable a Windows Media Player.
