On today's episode of The Bob Cesca Show's Interviews From Earth One: NSFW! 45 years ago this month, the greatest rock band in history, RUSH, released their self-titled debut album. My guest today, Donna Halper, is the former rock radio deejay who, that same year, first introduced the band to American audiences on a radio station in  Cleveland: WMMS. Donna's also a professor of  political communication and media studies, as well as an author and a blogger. Today we'll talk about a little politics and a lot of RUSH, so get ready. You can follow Donna's work at her blog and via Twitter.
