National Radio Day!

While this site, blog, podcast etc. is mostly about radio of the past, I just noticed that this Saturday is National Radio Day… a good reminder to visit TODAY’s radio news broadcasters and programmers who value the storytelling power of the human voice!

My “locals”:

WVRU Radford | WVTF Blacksburg
Radio Free Radford | WUVT Blacksburg

An out-of-town favorite: WDVX, Knoxville

National voices to know: On the Media | Fresh Air | RadioOpenSource
American Radio Works | This American Life | Prairie Home Companion
Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me … and many others… even the guy who taught me to play the banjo 30 years ago

Meanwhile, for a master-of-all-media voice from the past, I’ve been building a whole page about newspaperman-turned-radio-star Walter Winchell, his movies, and his television incarnations — including audio and video samples.
