CPSObsessed hitting the airwaves!
Newish public radio station WBEW (89.5 FM) will be featuring the topic of education during the month of September on their talk segments.
The exciting news is that yours truly (that would be me) will be one of the guests interviewed! Woo hoo!
I’ll be on air this Friday Sept 4th at 8 am representing the “obsessed parent.” Quite fitting, indeed. The guy from the station told me that they’d have some other obsessed parents throughout the month and I dared him to find others more obsessive than I have been.
The whole month of discussion on WBEW should prove interesting so tune in when you can. And especially this Friday to hear me (hopefully) not make a total fool of myself. If you have any good stories that represent any obsessive thing you have done in the school search process, please share and I may mention them.
If you can’t pick up the station on the radio, you can listen live on the web site.
More about the station:
Vocalo.org is a project of Chicago Public Radio, a new station that takes a different approach to public broadcasting—more informal and participatory. In our case, public radio is made largely by the public: Many of the stories and conversations we air have been contributed by listeners. We do not play any NPR content—no “All Things Considered,” no “This American Life.” Instead, our staff hosts a live broadcast from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. that mixes these listener-contributed stories with live talk segments and an eclectic smattering of local music. (When we’re not doing a live-hosted broadcast, we’re in “mixtape” mode—an automated, semi-random shuffle of listener-created material.)
Every month we pick a theme to explore—not that it’s the only thing we talk about, but it’s a conversation that continues throughout the month—and education is our theme for September.
