BH How to kill a radio station -- WNEW NY (23) RE: How to kill a radio station -- WNEW NY 03 Mar 03

Ron's modesty must have precluded him from saying that he hosts shows --as do I --on a metro NY /NJ area station that is, what could be termed, "free form" to some great extent. The hosts of the various programs can pretty well define the parameters of their programs---and the programs vary from interviews in the arts and lit on wknd mornings to jazz,pop,folk,Celtic,new singer/songwriters. "Eclectic" would be the term that comes to mind.

The New York Times recently ran a piece on the dearth of Country Music in the NY area. They felt WFUV broadcast it--and that was about it. Not only an incorrect statement, but they neglected to mention the others in the area. WKCR and WFDU come to mind. My letter to the editor was not published---something I expected. The Gray Lady does not like to be called to task---you can, however, critique its columnists.

In any case, you all probably know that the station I refer to in the beginning of this piece to expose Ron's modesty is WFDU 89.1 FM in Teaneck (where, by the way, Eric Andersen will be joining me this Sunday on the Trditions program 3-6 PM)
