Credit for this picture goes to one John Sanders. He is a talented voice-over artist, former program host on WFDU, and also, when on traffic television is known as Lane Closure. Which brings me to a great story that Mr. Sanders does with great timing----I related a tale to him of a former news-caster at WFDU who, while being a real intellect, dressed in a most shabby way. One day, aside from torn pants, worn shoes lacking shoelaces, and other such things he was holding his pants up with a rope as a belt. Mr. Sanders said to me :
A few program updates now:
Additionally, it has to be said, that TRADITIONS is about more than the newest things to come down the pike. They are important but we never want to forget from whence this all derives.
On the subject of debuts. I am delighted that TABLETALK was able to introduce authors and other artists to you this year prior to being taken on by the mainstream or larger media. The author of DOUGH comes to mind. Some time back others come to mind---Daniel Silva, Michael Oren, Liz Swados, The Siegels, and so many more.
My thanks to them all for their presence and their insight and talent.
Paul Bain---we wish him well and comfort in his trials and tribulations
To the support people who keep all things in such shape so as we on-air people can present programs with ease.
To the audience that supports this station so that we are truly in a 21st century mode with equipment. Many artists that have visited and commented on how impressed they are with the facility compared to others they visit.
To Major Armstrong. He built a really nice tower---among a lot of other things. (An Aside---new play on Bway--The Farnsworth Invention---Gen. Sarnoff of RCA tried to steal that patent along with that of Major Armstrong's FM invention) So---we thank Major Armstrong for FM radio.
