Friends of Philocrites on the air.

I was listening to NPR's "On Point" this evening — the conversation featured Gary Hart and David Ignatius on the Democrats and Iraq — when who should call in but friend-of-Philo Hank! Which reminds me that I also caught part of a recent rebroadcast of Christopher Lydon's June 1 "Open Source" about that online religion [mp3 available], during which Lydon read an email comment from another friend-of-Philo, MyIrony's very own Chutney. Go team!

I'm scratching my head trying to remember whether I've ever called in to a talk radio program. Comin' up blank. How about you? Are you a regular or semiregular or wholly irregular radio commentator?

Go team!

Does it also count that Ignatius was two years ahead of Fausto in primary school?

Are you a regular or semiregular or wholly irregular radio commentator?

No, but when Fausto was in college, he made the local TV news asking Al Haig an uncomfortably pointed question, which Haig neatly dodged by responding, "You know, you graduate from West Point, and you think they've taught you everything there is to know about self-confidence, but then you come here and see the freshmen doing the Sunday New York Times crossword puzzle with ball-point pens." Very smooth, Al.

Woah! I had no idea. I remember sending in a comment, but I missed the show that night. Wow. Chris Lydon...

I was on NPR Talk of the Nation once to ask a question about education and to emphasize that there is not a conflict between equity and excellence.

On our local community radio station, the kids got rather used to hearing us on the air to make announcements for Parents for Peace and getting interviewed either for my union or P4P.

In both undergrad and Div. School I was always on the radio, now I have less free morning time. Of course Gary Hart did dodge my question which was basically "Boomers Suck, why worry about vietnam the Dems were right about it as they have been right about Iraq. Boomers Suck"
