TABLETALK PROGRAM FOR WEEK OF 1/15-1/22

Some nostalgia, some new material, and a brief commemoration of Dr. King---Glad you are joining us in keeping the program alive as I try to meld the interviews, folk, and "yiddishkeit" of 3 programs into one---and a short one hour one at that====less talk --more content--and no begging for dollars---just asking for "likes" on the Facebook page.

TABLETALK PROGRAM FOR JANUARY 7, 2017


This is the first program for the new year and also comedy segment for our Sunday Simcha fans of times gone by on WFDU---which felt the shows were train wrecks. Well, the new head honcho and my former co-host felt that way. But as Arlon Bennett wrote to me--"...give me more of those train wrecks... Here is this week's and I hope you will be coming aboard and "like" the page----no fund raising involved===just meeting great talent

This is the Playlist==

TABLETALK YEAR END PROGRAM FOR 2016


 It has been a miserable year on all counts===artists who passed away, democracy receiving some hard blows, certain radio stations caving in to the vanity of their new management and , hypocritically , supporting those  that were once termed "annoying", and other stronger terms---OK I was that person's co host for over 22 or so years===and the original comments above are more than correct.   Shakespeare was wrong.   "Vanity thy name is woman"-----not so----it is former co-hosts on radio and management (the  head honcho of late)

TAB;ETALK PROGRAM FOR WEEK OF 12 21/16 ----12/30/16

My thanks to the Capitol Steps.   www.capitolsteps.com for allowing  me  to continue to present their quarterly specials on my various sites----and, I believe, to an amount of listeners equal or more than WFDU----AND no fund raising requests

Enjoy!

A BRIEF UPDATE ON MY DEPARTURE FROM WFDU

Recently there have been ever so many more changes to the programming at my former station.

To set the record straight regarding myself.    I sort of soft pedaled the involvement of the new Mgr.   (Barry Sheffield).   My mistake.   The buck always stops with the head honcho.   That is not to negate my feelings about my former co-host--Ron Olesko.   Biblically speaking he is my very own Judas who has hoped for this for years (and did his best to bring it about--in a most subversive way.

I know that fund raising efforts at public stations is a necessity and so it is with WFDU.   The station has had many overly generous donors over the years----some have passed on to where donors go---and I hope they are rewarded properly since their generosity and their aims have been subverted for many reasons---mostly personal by mgmt(because they can).  

I have recvd. some truly touching mail from long time (now former as they say) listeners to wish  me well and---one in particular---cannot abide Traditions anymore without, he states, the humor and entertainment being replaced by the vanity and constant pedagogy of Ron Olesko.   He goes on to say that the constant announcements of his Presidency of the Hurdy Gurdy and the longevity if Traditions
are very annoying---along with his choice music.

Not to cause any issues w/ staff I do want to thank the staff (former--a lot---current--a few) for their kind thoughts.   I shall miss you as well.
