WNYC – Our Daily Bread

BY Lisa Lindblad

June 15, 2010

I am not of the radio generation – that was my mother and another, gentler time – but, better late than never, I have discovered its magic.  Soothing yet stimulating, it hums along in the background of my workday until, seemingly subconsciously, a bell goes off and the voice cuts through all other noise and thought and captures my attention.  But, then, it is not any voice.  These are the mellifluous voices of Amy and Leonard and Brian, the hysterically funny voices of the Tappet Brothers, the friendly and fresh voices of Carl and Peter quizzing listeners like you and me and, finally, the down home, ‘curl up and imagine’ voice of Garrison K.  These are the voices of WNYC – to me, the best offering of news, culture, music and story to be found anywhere; and I mean anywhere.

There is so much more to WNYC and its smart, intelligent, entertaining, deep, thoughtful, funny, hysterical and warm offerings that you should take a look at their website or, better yet, turn your dial to FM93.9 or AM820.
