Radio Days Revisited


December 12th, 2001 ~ Scanning the dial in search of great voices, characters and shows that grace the airwaves locally and nationwide, today and yesterday. Included are an old-time country station based in a Mt. Airy, North Carolina log cabin, sounds from the US-Mexican Border, the mellow grit of New Orleans R & B, and Rev. Isiah's "spiritual workshop" from Jackson, MS.
