“Fresh Air”

Terry Gross got her start at my alma mater, SUNY-Buffalo, working at the university's radio station, WBFO, in the early 1970s

National Public Radio’s “Fresh Air with Terry Gross” has long been my favourite radio program. The host’s friendly urbanity and curiosity always charm me, making me think, until the spell wears off, that the world is a little bit better than it really is. I’m delighted that she has a Tumblr blog, with links to current and past interviews. Terry Gross’s interview with PJ Harvey last February was one of this year’s true highlights for me. (Here‘s a link to her old radio station, WBFO, where you can also listen to podcasts of “Fresh Air.”)

“Bullshit Fields”

My buddy Jonathan Mayhew is going to town on this topic.
