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.

About Bob Stepno

mild-mannered reporter who sank into computers and the Web during graduate school in the 1980s and '90s, then taught journalism, media studies and Web production, retiring to write and play more music.
