MY WBAI life

You may or may not know that for 25 years I had radio show on WBAI Radio in New York City. The show. Walden’s Pond, focused on the environment, culture and politics. I was very fortunate to get and keep a show on that contentious and controversial station. I have so many stories and memories of my tenure there, some of them I will share over time on this blog. Some you may find shocking. Obviously, I learned many lessons there, positive and negative. I tried to forge my own unique path @ WBAI, which is known for its far-left and, at times, incoherent politics.. I was in sympathy with some of the sentiments of the programming, but many programs were, at times. unlistenable and not balanced, not necessarily the politics, but plain common sense. There were some painful episodes @ WBAI and probably had I known better and had some courage, I probably would have left the station years earlier. But something kept me there, mainly the chance to share ideas and opinions – it also probably kept me sane considering I was caring for a parent who was disabled. It also enabled me to share with the audience an issue that changed my life, the issue of circumcision. I will share how I got involved with that topic in future installments. As a former telephone operator @ WBAI used to say, stay tuned!
