Brought back memories

The two WNEW podcasts were terrific. At 66 years old I was right there. Vin was always an intellectual step above the rest, but that radio team (Herman, Muni, Elsas, Schwartz, Pete Fornatele , Steele, and Scelsa. What a bundle of radio history. The right players for the right time. Sort of like Carson was the right guy for those times. Vin, congratulations on the podcast and on an extraordinary career.

Thanks, Old Friend

In the 70s Vin helped get me through grammar school. I wasn't allowed to stay up late but I would turn the radio on in my room past bedtime and listen (and, yes, my cat was named Razoo Kelley).

In the 80s Vin helped me get through college. I was a young and idealistic student (um, droput) who was listening to Abby Hoffman on WBAI and Vin on whatever station he was on.

In the 90s when a divorce made me loose my buisiness Vin not only got me through the weekends but introduced me to great musicians in NYC some of whom I got to know and work with personally which led to so many amazing experiences. I could never adequeately express my gratitiude.

The Mid 2000s found me living on a chicken farm in NJ, a second divorce left me a single parent of a 4yo son. Vin was still there.

Now it's 2016 and my 15yo son and I still live on the farm (though the chickens are gone) and we're working to turn the house into a recording / artistic space. I googled "vin scelsa hal blain" because that was the single most amazing interview I ever heard and I wanted to share it.

What's this google is telling me? Vin is PODCASTING? I run and grab my phone and subscribe. Within minutes Vin's voice is in my ear and a sense of calm descends. Times may be tough and my choices remain... unorthodox -- but it's always worked out. I learned so much from Vin and his guests over the decades. Hearing his voice again reminds me of that.

Kate is a great addition to this next incarnation. I listened to her grow up through Vin's stories (except for the years he wasn't allowed to talk about her!) so it seems like a natural progression. Her contributiuon and insight is valuable.

So old fans -- you know what to do. To new fans you're in for a treat.

Perfect Holiday Gift!

Thanks Kate for sharing your gift of a loving parent(s) with us.
I'll continue following for as long as long as you record "pods".
