A brief return to radio to talk about, what else?, birds

Radio people often joke that they prefer that medium over television because they “have a face made for radio.” Well, after having my own radio show for a few years, I can say that I have a “voice made for newspapers.” (Hence, my long career in newspaper writing and editing.)

But, despite that, I recently appeared as a guest on John McGauley’s entertaining Friday radio show on WKBK in Keene, N.H. John reads my column in The Keene Sentinel and was intrigued by an article I had written about a bird population study. He asked if I’d do a quick interview to explain it further. Of course, I obliged and was happy to do so.

I hadn’t been on the radio since I pulled the plug on my Bird Calls Radio show six years ago (or thereabouts). John had some great questions and my answers were fairly intelligent (at least I think so) and delivered in my typical better-off-in-newspapers voice with lots of ums and ahs. So, if you’re a glutton for punishment, click on the link below. I’m on for about the first 20 minutes.

Thanks to John and WKBK for the opportunity.

  1. I just enjoyed listening to your radio show from Keene. I’m happy to say I’ll be up in the Monadnock Region for Thanksgiving.
    Although I don’t get to New Hampshire as much as I used to, I have certainly noticed so much less thrush song in the woods — wood thrushes & hermits — than I remember about twenty years ago.
    Have a great Thanksgiving, Susan
