About Me

I try to find enjoyment in life's simple things: friends & family, gardening, nature, home projects, etc. The television and radio are generally silent appliances in my home. But sometimes we all need a little help outside of ourselves to lift our hearts with laughter or a song. In my house, that often means switching on "Golden Age" radio shows, classic television or film, or simply turning to a good old-fashioned book.

Radio Reflected a Nation Back to Itself

Reflecting on the days when radio provided an on-air live radio format, Associate Professor Emeritus of Journalism Dave MacFarland said,
"Once, radio reflected a nation back to itself; it told stories. Now most days feel like a carbon copy of yesterday. Radio today is a utility, like cooking gas for your range -- you turn it on briefly when you need it."
