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
