ICYMI: Here's Mary Cummings-Jordan yesterday with our guest, actor Steven Eng. He's in a solo play called "Hold These Truths" at People's Light and plays THIRTY EIGHT different characters!

The play is fantastic, and tells the story of what happened to Japanese Americans after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The main character, Gordon Hirabayashi, refused to comply with many of the unjust restrictions placed on Japanese people during WWII, including curfew and internment, and his case went all the way to the Supreme Court.

Marty here: We enjoy working with WHYY engineer Al Banks. He always has something upbeat to share. He began at the station in 1980 and has held many different jobs… telemarketer, mail room supervisor, videotape librarian, assistant traffic manager, production assistant for TV and engineer since the 1990’s. We’ve used him for voiceovers for RT because of his deep melodic voice. You hear his name and now here he is!

Reality Stars Are Just Like Us

🤭 Marty & Paige here. Please listen to our very serious confession.

We somewhat regularly enjoy "Reality" TV. Marty insists that she only watches Real Housewives of New Jersey occasionally (I mostly believe her). I, Paige, on the other hand, fully admit to following the Kardashian clan and the Bachelor franchise.

WILL YOU SHARE IN OUR DELIGHT/MISERY? Do you have a guilty pleasure TV show?

Let us know! Tomorrow, we're talking with Danielle J. Lindemann, author of "True Story: What Reality TV Says About Us."

In “True Story,” the sociologist Danielle J. Lindemann parses the enduring appeal and effect of the TV genre.

Marty here: My bad!
Is “I feel badly about” incorrect grammar?
The linking verb “feel” must link noun to adjective, not adverb. The person feels sorry or regretful. Thus, the correct sentence is, “I feel BAD about that.”

Special Edition: Remembering Bobby Rydell - WHYY

Pulled from the archives: A special edition of the Radio Times, where we revisit our conversation with Bobby Rydell, who died yesterday at the age of 79.

He was a part of the crop of young rock stars who emerged from South Philadelphia in the 1950s, and joined us to talk about his life, his music, and his hair. The teen idol was known for his hits ‘Wildwood Days,’ ‘Volare,’ ‘Swinging School,’ among many others, and appeared in the movie ‘Bye, Bye, Birdie’ with Dick Van Dyke and Ann-Margret in 1963.

From the archives, our 2016 interview with Bobby Rydell, whose musical stardom emerged from South Philadelphia in the 1950s. He passed away this week at the age of 79.

The apparent execution of Ukrainian civilians by retreating Russian forces, their bodies strewn in streets and yards, has focused attention on what constitutes crimes in war.

Listen and share today’s #DrivingEquality conversation: WHYY Radio Times https://whyy.org/episodes/the-regional-roundup-february-14th/
I’ll be joining WHYY Radio Times this morning to discuss #DrivingEquality - going into effect February 24th 🗓 Tune in and share questions about our approach to combatting racial discrimination that won’t compromise on public safety.
Thank you Radio Times for this morning's show on the Fairmount Fire and the impact on the community, the city and our first-responders. Listen here:
Thank you WHYY for featuring Erin Goodhart, Senior Clinical Director of Women’s Services at Caron, on Radio Times this week! You can listen to Erin’s discussion on #DryJanuary and the benefits of evaluating your relationship with alcohol below.
I gave Radio Times a shout out regarding the interview Marty did with Amishi Jha.
Don't forget to tune in to WHYY's Radio Times at 10 A.M. EST this morning to hear Erin Goodhart, Senior Clinical Director of Women’s Services at Caron, discuss #DryJanuary!
Erin Goodhart, Senior Clinical Director of Women’s Services at Caron, will be featured on WHYY's Radio Times this Monday, January 3, to talk about #DryJanuary! Tune in at 10 A.M. EST to listen to Erin’s interview.
Regarding today's discussion, I want to take the opportunity to point to the elephant in the room, which are the currently very contentious policy changes by the Philadelphia School District in the magnet school selection process, which is going on right now and roiling racial tensions, particularly fueling anti-Asian sentiment. We see school district policy changes and rhetoric around those changes focused on Asian students at select magnet schools in the City, like Masterman and Central where the students attacked on the train a couple weeks ago were from. When we hear parents using this kind of anti-Asian language around rallies and protests and school district meetings, it’s no surprise that children who hear this language then use it themselves to harass, bully and at times violently attack Asian students on the streets or trains, particularly Asian kids who can be identified as students in these select schools. As Councilmember Gym just mentioned, we’re seeing this violence and harassment against people of a very young age. Also, Mary, thank you for highlighting this important issue on today’s show, and Councilmember Gym, thank you for your work to improve public safety for all Philadelphia school students.
The Dems problem is they just cant tell a simple story like the GOP--. For Example - So called Critical race theory that the right wing whines about is actually real American history which is what the right wing doesnt want taught. So simple
