"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.

There is a Facebook page for Outsiide with Dale Bowman and Joel Greenberg.

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

As the days last longer will the broadcast time get pushed back? No radios out on the river.

Nice job, Dale & Joel. Very intertaining and educational discussion of the Chicago area waterways. And, even though I am not a birder, the bird related conversation was interesting as well.

I tuned in and liked what I heard. You'll do fine with this.

As far as I know, that is and will be our time slot. Personally, I think it is a helluva good time slot for an outdoors show.


I listened to the show live on the internet.You guys did a great job!Living very close to 3 rivers the show was of special interest to me.
You've sparked a desire in me to learn more about the history of this area.Especialy about native Americans who inhabited this area.There are burial mounds very close to the Des plaines river not far from the Dupage.
The half hour flew by.
