Week Two and Still Panting

Dear Friends,

Those of you who were listening lastTuesday when Charlayne Hunter-Gault was my guest might have noticed that she seemed distracted at the start of the program and out of breath. Well, here's a little sneak peek behind-the-scenes. It turns out that our star reporter was having her telephone line worked on that day, and when we called her at the start of the program, her cellphone was running out of juice. So she took to the streets and was literally running around her neighborhood trying to get somebody to let her use their landline while talking to me on the air! Now, that's a first.

I hope you liked the conversation with Colin Channer and Kwame Dawes today as much as we did. I worried that a program about new writing from Jamaica might be too obscure, but Bob Marley, the reggae beat, great guests, and two good callers carried the day.

Please let us know what you think. I love it when you write back.
