It's public radio and fundraising time, please pitch in and back "Outside."
As serious as J.R. Black looks above, one of his stories in a September broadcast is hilarious and one of the snippets today. More on that below.
Important today is the fundraising part.
Back the show and let station managers know you listen to and enjoy "Outside" at www.wkccradio.org or by calling (815) 802-8230.
We are volunteer hosts, but it costs money for the recording and broadcast portion. This is important if you enjoy the sort of different outdoors show that Joel Greenberg and I are doing.
That is a bald plea. I don't care if it is $10. Yes, $100 would be even nicer, but do something. I am not expecting anything I don't practice. My wife and I have been members since the first fundraising drive, and that was before "Outside" was even an idea.
As to the show: station GM Mike Savage, who is also the guy who got us on the air, and I talk between three favorite snippets I picked--Black talking about shooting holes in a boiler, my black bear hiking tale and Mike Wefer on gray partridge in Illinois.
"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1) in Kankakee. Rebroadcasts of the show are at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays.
