Sound Waves in the West

Song - Radio Nowhere by Bruce Springsteen

Something you probably didn't know about me .....

............that I was a radio announcer in 1973.....
....kind of.....

I went to Foothill College in Los Altos Hills for two years majoring in Ornamental Horticulture.  And during that time I was asked to be the "call in girl" on the college radio station "Tips on Gardening". 

I would take the calls from the public about gardening problems or questions and relay them to one of my professors, Chuck Konigsberg who would then discuss the situation.

It was an early morning show on Sunday's so in reality we occasionally didn't get enough calls to fill out the entire time slot so we had a page of prearranged questions to "fake it"!!!

I guess this is where you learn to  

"Yes Chuck, I have a call from Sally who is having a problem with aphids on her tomatoes.  What would you suggest?"

By the way, my garden is in full bloom right now and I'm loving it! 
Come on by and have a peek!!

"As every radio listener knows, it's amazing how much 
you can see with your ears."
