Radio Curious with Attorney Barry Vogel Now Airs Thursdays

WHAV is now airing “Radio Curious,” hosted and produced by Attorney Barry Vogel.

The program features half hour interviews on a “curiously wide array of topics concerning life and ideas.”

Vogel says his desire to create mental images from radio voices comes from his childhood memories of awakening in a warm bed on wintry Saturday mornings, listening to “Let’s Pretend.” The end of those all-too-short weekends was heralded each Sunday evening by the booming voice of Walter Winchell greeting “Mr. and Mrs. America” with the news of the week, as the wafting aroma of family dinner yielded yet another invisible wonder in the kitchen.

Fifteen years later, his first regular radio programs were broadcast in Peru, where Vogel served as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Radio Curious first aired on Mendocino County Public Broadcasting in 1991 and has since aired on many public radio stations in North America and other continents.

Radio Curious airs at 7 p.m., Thursday nights, over WHAV. The program replaces “Sierra Club Radio” which ceased production last month.
