Happy New Year and (founding) Mother's Day

Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR napoli

Our first broadcast of the year features a shorter program--one hour instead of two--and some tweaks to the JX format. And it features a chat about some key figures in the early days of public radio in America, as profiled by Lisa Napoli in her book Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR.

Susan Stamberg and Linda Wertheimer joined the author for a book-club Zoom session organized through the Ashland branch of OLLI, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. KOBI-TV (NBC 5) owner Patsy Smullin joins Geoffrey Riley in this interview launching a new year and a revamped JX.

The interview had to be edited for air, but the attached file is the full session.
