Davisville, Oct. 23, 2017: For fundraising week, a backstage look at 3 public affairs shows

It's fundraising week, so I dedicated this week's program to a discussion among three of KDRT's public-affairs program hosts -- Gitane (right), Lois Richter, and yours truly -- on where they (we) get ideas, what makes a good show, and the spirit of community radio, which can range from ramshackle to polished. Lois co-hosts the Davis Garden Show with Don Shor, plus hosts her own program That's Life. Dr. G hosts Heart to Heart -- and among other things tonight, explains why she can't really give advice on air to people in Davis who might otherwise call with their problems. As she says, microphones are better now than they used to be. Even if a guest with a problem were never named, Davis is still small enough that their voice might be recognized.
