The greening of local radio
This post will only pertain to WNY readers of this blog (by far the minority, according to my stats), but if you're interested in gardening and you're within the reach of WKBW/1520 AM, have I got a show for you.
Local plantswoman Sally Cunningham takes to the airwaves tomorrow morning with a show dedicated to gardening and landscaping. It will also have an organic, environment-friendly slant. There'll be guests, and of course, answers to questions from listeners, though she doesn't want the whole show to be devoted to call-in.
Cunningham is the author of a few well-regarded gardening books and a master gardener. Until recently, she ran a master gardening program through our local cooperative extension, but that program was gutted and now Cunningham works at the fabulous Lockwood's Nursery. She also has a TV show on Sunday mornings on Channel 4 and writes columns for the Buffalo News. Plenty of cred there; this is someone I would listen to and even believe! (Though I might not always agree.)
It's great to see another gardening show on local radio; the one on WBEN on, I think, Saturdays, is OK, but we need a different voice.
