An update for the future of my Radio programs & what happened

For those of you who wonder and care to know I shall give you the inside poop--yes, much like dog or cat excrement.    Suffice it say the mgmt (now in the hands  of Barry Sheffield) had issues that could not be not be resolved in a civil way and much had to do with the deference to Ron Olesko.  More on that later.   In the meantime my show will continue on You Tube once we get rid of some glitches that I created  in my Luddite mode when it comes to computers.     Below is a link to where you can now hear my  programs---soon on YouTube but now go to SoundCloud ----- https://soundcloud.com/bill…/brunch-with-bill-october-9-2016    

more to follow---no fund raising, no office politics, just topical entertainment

Now, for those who want the inside poop mentioned:

 =Many people have said that no one leaves FDU on good terms. Now I have to agree. While I thank you for all your years (and mine) of a good relationship and support (save for one time (thanks to Ron) it has been much appreciated. I believe the final moments were over the top for whatever reasons you had in your comments to me.

Specifics now. Comments about errors (open mic.---as you have also done), disrespect by commenting to Rich S, and ,my trainwreck of a show (I suppose in comparison to all the other “quality” programs on the world wide voice of …...

This brings me to Ron and why he is CCd. For years you have criticized him and his persona along w/hit fundraising (compared to mine---not Important to me) yet when I suggested shaving his hours or (I did not get to it) going back to the old alt week sched. You said he cannot be changed or moved and, or course that went for all. Who got cancelled----me. Who got moved? Lynn.

One last thought to clear my slate of issues. Ron truly is a disloyal person. It is obvious in his voice (which I never listen to as most FDU shows --- save Mr Wills ---was the reason we had our (and Carl's) confrontation a few months back when he sent you an e mail addressed to me from a nasty listener---if it were U S mail I could pressed charges against Ron/ too bad no one even listened to it since it was nothing worthy of an issue----except Ron who had other issues-

That's it. Slate clear and since I see how happy dear Ron sounds I shall stick w/NPR and programs of interest to me

ANOTHER FOLLOW UP

If you came here because I suggested it; welcome.   The reason you came here is to see what really transpired that led to my departure (after 26 years )w/WFDU and hosting some 4 programs over the years.

Unfortunately I accepted the chore of hosting Sunday Simcha many years ago.  The show was named by me since the former program(hosted by Norman Laster) was cancelled by station management for myriad and proper reasons.   I was urged(very strongly) to take it over and was also hosting TRADITIONS alternate weeks,  as well as TABLETALK on a monthly basis.

Enough  of this now and on to  the reason you came here.

For many (26 by my count)years I co-hosted TRADITIONS (Ron Olesko  had asked me to join him) alternate weeks, as many of you will recall.  Now,  jump ahead some years and arrive at the fairly present time.  The station and the various programs  had some disappointing  results   in our fund raising efforts and some changes had to be made.  The station also had a new Program Director , Barry Sheffield, who has been there in another capacity for many years.In all those years he and I always  had a very good (so I thought)  relationship..   That now changed when he felt that my program(s) did not bring in enough revenue  I understood that and offered various alternatives..   One was to shave 1 hour off Traditions  and replace it with  my 1 hour Brunch With Bill.  Another thought was to go  back to the earlier programming where I alternated weeks  on Traditions and (according to Barry Sheffield ) was more effective at fund raising time. 

No way was the new P.D.  going to change Ron Olesko's hours (stated Mr. Sheffield) and, also, no one on Sundays will be cancelled.   You see how truthful that was . 

 As in most cases there are more details and sides but this is the basic outline save for PD's claim to have been personally offended by me for something he found on Facebook (agreeing w/an ex host he despises).

     As you read before I was not to be trusted on air (after all the years I was trusted) so, in aa few days check You Tube for my final BRUNCH WITH BILL----the show that wasn't     There will be more You Tube to come in this new world of alternative means of communication
