Oct 22-26 Programs

Hi Guys,

We have some old friends coming up this week:

Monday: Those of you who remember Conversations with Jean Feraca, my mid-morning talk show, will doubtless recall Dawna Markova, psychologist and educator, author of How Your Child Is Smart, who used to cast her radio spell quite regularly on our airwaves. She's coming to Madison to give a workshop on Secrets of My Russian Grandmother next weekend and we'll get a preview this coming Monday.

Tuesday: Every once in a while a new voice emerges with the power to change the world. Women for Women International Founder and President Zainab Salbi is such a voice. She joins us on the eve of United Nations Day to share her personal experience as a survivor of war and her dedication to rebuilding communities ravished by war, one woman at a time.

Wednesday: Everybody's worried about Iran. Is war with Iraq's neighbor inevitable? Who better to ask than Gary Sick, principal White House aide during the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the U.S. hostage crisis. He'll be giving his talk, "Is a U.S. Strike on Iran Inevitable?" on Thursday, October 25, at 8 p.m. in Grainger Hall's Morgridge Auditorium, 975 University Ave. The event is free and open to the public.

Thursday: Languages are disappearing from the earth as rapidly as animal species. Who cares? What difference does it make?

Friday: Patrick O'Halloran, (better known as O-all-orino), the Irish chef at Lombardino's in Madison who is doing his utmost to make up for his Irish culinary deficiencies, has just returned from yet another tour of Italy -- this time all by himself to little known villages where he ate regional delicacies you and I would probably never touch.

Thanks for hanging in there with us during pledge drive and for all your support now and throughout the year.
