"Outside" debuts on WKCC-FM (91.1) at 4:30 p.m. today.
Joel Greenberg (above left) and I have kicked this around for years. We finally get our radio show going.
"Outside" will air from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM, a start-up public radio station in Kankakee.
In the first show, which was our pilot when we pitched the show, is Joel and I riffing off a boat ride/fishing trip with Bill Anderson to the confluence of the Des Plaines and Kankakee rivers, and the Illinois headwaters.
The debut sets the basic threads we hope to continue: filtering modern outdoors through our experience, then putting it in a historical context.
The live listening area is basically framed by I-80, Manhattan, near Dwight, Watseka and Cedar Lake, Ind. Click here to see the coverage map for the start-up public radio station.

Now comes the work of it. A work of love I hope.
