More about WBZ

This Sunday (April 20), at midnight, I'll be appearing as a guest, via phone, on Boston's WBZ NewsRadio (1030 AM). I'll be interviewed about The Lucky Strike Papers by guest host Morgan White, Jr. He's sitting in that night for host Steve LeVeille.

As I mentioned in the preceding two posts, my mother hosted a show on WBZ-TV, "The Sue Bennett Show," in 1954 and 1955. In 1956, the year I was born, she was co-host of another TV show on the station, a weekday morning program, "Morning Playhouse." Her co-host was the legendary Boston TV personality Rex Trailer.
