OK .. I am back. There is so much going on..
First, let’s get to the WYPR stuff right away.
The board and management of the station keep saying that there are reasons they cannot divulge as to why they cancelled my show.
So, I am asking them now …. Freeing them up from any fears they may have …
Tell everyone, the listeners, the press, why you did this.
Tell me, you have never told me. I and my friends and people who loved and listened to the show would love to hear your reasoning.
My guess: they don’t have one, other than the reality we have all witnessed over the last month.
Anyway, on to bigger and better things!
It is time to get back in the saddle, so we are going to be bringing you new interviews. Until we get our new website up, you can find them right here on our blog, ready to listen to or to podcast.
How many of you are fans of the WIRE? My guess is a lot of you are.
I love the WIRE. It is a show that speaks not only about life in the inner city neighborhoods of our land but about what they are emblematic of in America. It speaks to who we are becoming in America. The acting is just phenomenal and the writing is the best on television.
Over the course of the next few weeks, we will air interviews with actors, writers, producers, and others from the WIRE. We will start with creative partners Ed Burns and David Simon. This week you will hear actors Clarke Peters, who plays Lester Freamon, Andre Royo, who portrays Bubbles, and Robert Chew, playing the ill-fated kingpin Prop Joe. There will many more this week and in the coming weeks.
We won’t stop there. More interviews with authors, public figures, artists and just interesting folks coming your way. Many of them will be multiplatform stories, with pictures and more. Download the scripts, download the interviews. The Marc Steiner Show is back!
Let us know what is happening in your worlds and what you want to hear.
I will be writing more after the weekend, reflecting on what’s in the news, in our communities, in the arts.
Stay tuned… more exciting stuff coming our way.
Have a great weekend!
