Say it aint so
It's so funny that as a child I would make fun of my mother for listening to talk radio. I could not fathom why she did not want to listen to music, especially in the car where I was trapped with her. The irony, of course, is that now that I'm an adult (or at least that's what my biological age keeps showing me) I, too, listen to talk radio. (and music, too) Last night I was watching the local news (which I try to do sparingly because it is so "fear feeding") and discovered that WTIC talk radio is letting Colin McEnroe go. I find Colin to have keen intelligence, sharp wit and candor about topics that most other reporters just spin. I'm am also grateful that he welcomed me onto his radio show as a guest a couple of times. He is surprisingly open about spiritual topics. We discussed the wheel of the year and the changing of the seasons. How we can honor nature and live in harmony with its cycles. How we can honor our loved ones on the other side. In my humble opinion his absence will cause a tremendous imbalance in their programming and I look forward to hearing his perspective again elsewhere.
