“In times like these, it is important to remember that there have always been times like these.” I admire anyone who can express their philosophy in a calm/rational way. Sonja is such a person. Her show – Meat and Potatoes – is amazing. Whether you agree or disagree with her, you will learn a great deal. Listen in every Saturday morning from 8-9 (right after On the Road, Again). It will be time well spent.
What do you do at the radio station?
I have a radio program on Saturday mornings, 8am to 9am – Meat and Potatoes. No fixed subject really but I do discuss politics but from a practical point of view. I bring up an issue what I know about it and suggest solutions and/or approach it from another point of view. Last week it was schools: their costs to us and subject matter being taught. The week prior US Congressional Candidate Ed Thelander was a guest. Hoping to have more guests moving forward.
How long have you been volunteering?
Over three years now, I do not remember when I started but knew it was before the covid shutdown in 2020.
Why did you decide to volunteer/why did you want to have a show?
I have something to say, a point of view and feel the need to share it.
Other than the show you host, what is your favorite show?
The World in Song, I am not sure if it is a program but I really enjoy it.
Is there a question I should have asked you?
Not sure, what are future plans for the program? If asked, more guests and more of a fixed format.
What is your favorite book? Why is it your favorite?
Favorite Book – Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy. Amazing writing, story a little dark but the least dark of all his books.
Who would be your dream guest? What would you ask them?
Dream guest? I have no idea, but if anyone it would be Tom Brady the football quarterback. Just to thank him for some incredible football.
