TABLETALK program for the week of August 25, 2017`

I do believe a topical, nostalgic, and pointed show this wek that will introduce you a few new artists and have you enjoy some old favorites.

On a personal note let  me add this thought---Having done this for over 20 + years (under various titles)  it is a delight to do it here w/ no time constraints and disloyal people, frankly, passing on to the  disloyal  new mgmt.issues that====OK ,yes my ex- co host ==were meant for me --he(who asserts a love for free speech and non-censorship) forwarded to them.   Talk about "shit hitting the fan".   It did.   Shortly  thereafter I resigned and now you can enjoy, hopefully you do. the same program I did (programs) on WFDU (Traditions, Sunday Simcha, Tabletalk).   This program is a blend (amalgam) of all----but, mostly TRADITIONS---so, thanks and, finally, no thanks to Ron Olesko for continuing w/  his long running and (having the experience now) hypocritical and less than clever(on topical matters) program.    

NOW---today's Playlist:

TABLETALK WEEK OF 8/11/17

A day late and many dollars short but it is  here in this fairly awful and tragic week which we evince in a musical way. 

Additionally, a concert mention about a wonderful new performer(s) soon to appear at the Minstrel.

Lastly---keep in mind the wonderful annual FREE concert in Rockland County by the Borderline Folk group----so sorry I cannot attend this year.  The date is August 27 at 12 noon---a brilliant tribute to LEONARD COHEN---and a great finale w/ many of you favorite artists

Tobpical Topics For Today

Knowing that recently I have always posted my weekly TABLETALK program her I though it a cood idea to post a more topical thought today.   Comments, as always, welcome.\

To be as brief as possible.   Donald Trump (explectives and snide comments) deleted.   N. Korea and his response.   I am certain that you remember a time of diplomacy (Kennedys/Cuba, etc)  ad now we have a ego maniacal Pres. who males all things personal and  troubles---dare I say, fragile libido.  

The fact is that it is not personal an diplomacy (something he knows not of---unlike all who came before      (thankfully).

My take is that N. Korea's leader is aiming for something (I know not) and has more insight than the simplistic person now serving as (sadly) Pres.  We have the school bully w/ the big mouth  as opposed to the giants we had----DDE,Marshall, HST,  and more

Honestly, we can only hope that the mouth DT keeps shooting off does not cost millions of innocent lives cares not a whit about---as he cared not for the tenants i his bldgs.

A Topical Topic Today

WFDU AND FUND RAISING COMMENTS

I do believe that a few things have to be addressed re: WFDU, Ron Olesko and Traditions.

I have not tuned in to WFDU for quite some time since all their format changes into total nonsense for listening when there are so many other options in talk (WNYC),music(WQXR) or Sirtius. I did tune in today for a brief 29 or so minutes (other than for a short time to the only 1 of 2 listenable programs---Vintage Rock/Pop Shop---Lise Avery). I tuned in to Ron Olesko and Traditions. I truly despise hypocrisy. He truly presented it ins perfect form. Aside from the fact that he sounded like he never had a co-host for over 20 some odd years on HIS(his term) show he made a comment about how many times he has aired music that was controversial and got complaints from listeners. TRUE! Yet when such a complaint came to him by mistake he forwarded to mgmt. And all the fecal matter hit the fan and that is one of a few reasons I am no longer there.

Don't misunderstand me. I left. Tired of criticism about content and tired of looking at a pouting puss during fund raising time because the money was not coming in.

OK—bottom line---I thank all for my start there and things do change and I truly abhor their hypocrisy and could not abide the new Mgmt and Ron Olesko(and his hypocrisy) anymore

SOME COMMENTS ABOUT WFDU AND MY HISTORY THERE


So many postings recently about WFDU---both pro and con but mostly con.
Not to belabor the comments about WFDU, mgmt, hosts, and such I do ask your indulgence for a few final points---positive to start with and you can guess where this is going.

Many years back Ron Olesko asked me to come aboard on Traditions because he needed help and I thank him to this day for the opportunity. He did say I would have to be approved by the Program Director (Barry Sheffield)---great story there---briefly now: I am trying to be impressive in a sport jacket and slacks and in comes a guy in torn jeans(you get the pic).Barry Sheffield, PD. His comment was... “just fill out the forms so we know who to contact in case you drop dead in the studio...”. See—I am overqualified after this test---I am alive. The next 20 or so years were truly enjoyable and a great learning experience thanks to Ron and Barry and so many others at what was once a great station thanks to great management by Carl Kraus . He knew how to deal with leadership---stay distanced and be loyal and fair and not be everyone's “buddy” and then screw them (for want of a better statement).


Well. The years have gone by and like everything times and relationships change.

Over the years Ron had become increasingly sorry to have to share what he considered HIS program. I had now invested many years in it and I urged the “boss”(Carl K) to honor Ron's longevity in a major way. He tried to do that at a famed venue to no avail and no help from Ron.

The years move on and increasingly Ron and I move further apart and his anger with me and sharing the program increases in less than subtle ways---and now here we are. Me on internet radio and Ron delighted on doing HIS show again. In all its pedantic presentations .

Let me not leave out Barry Sheffield who as the new head honcho (replacing Carl Kraus) lead us into this morass by , for whatever reason, deciding that Ron Olesko's time could not be cut back and we return to the old arrangement which I suggested. I disagreed and now you see why I had to leave the place of nepotism, backstabbing , and other well, more than slights. Strange for me to pursue this since no pay was involved and now the place that claims to be a volunteer effort has a paid staff. Many of whom have substantial incomes from retirement benefits, pensions,etc;

SO, now in a bit of self serving posting let me urge you to “like” TABLETALK” --the page==on Facebook and tune in to the very same program plus more I did on WFDU. It will be up there weekly on Fridays. Also on Soundcloud andmy blog-- www.billhahnprogramnotes.blogspot.com

As to fundraising--- none here on the internet and as to WFDU/Traditions===well, let your conscience be your guide. Surely you can guess my thoughts on that matter
