Anticipation

Just 24 hours to go.

The Marc Steiner Show will be back on the air in 24 hours. I can hardly wait. This long running radio show was abruptly cancelled back in February, much like the beloved Colts leaving in the night years ago. I don't like losing my favorite things.

This show is important to the community because Marc covers a variety of topics that are of local interest. He interviews people who would otherwise never have their voices heard. He is willing to ask the tough questions in a way that never insults his guests or his listeners. He covers a wide variety of topics. Politics are always prominently featured and during local election campaigns, he will not only interview the candidates who are front runners, he will interview the candidate without a snowball's chance as well. He regularly has guests with ideas as to how we can fix the drug or crime problems in our city and what to do about our schools.

The show has found a new home on WEAA "The Voice of the Community". This is the radio station of Morgan State University, a top notch HBC in our city. I cannot think of a better place for Marc to land as his show has long been the voice of the community. It is a perfect match. For the summertime the show will air every Wednesday, beginning tomorrow, from 9 am to 10 am. In September the show will have a daily slot. You can find WEAA at 88.9 on the FM dial. You can also listen via the web which is what I will be doing since I will be listening from work. I hope tomorrow is a quiet morning at the office!

It feels like part of my brain has been in hibernation, I am looking forward to waking it up.

And now we have lost Jim McKay, another Baltimore icon. Surely you watched the Wide World of Sports.
