As I sit here contemplating how to begin, my thoughts drift back to an evening in Chicago quite a few years ago. We had discovered a new FM station a couple of days before, a lovely selection of classical music and a small number of tasteful commercials. It was the beginning of the great reputation of WFMT. Those memories still fill me with nostalgia.
What I'm recalling in particular is Rita Jacobs. She was the announcer for the evening. It was Rita and her husband, Bernard, who were the skeleton crew. The station was their brainchild. When one of the selections finished, Rita simply spoke to the stillness of space as she asked, "Is anyone out there listening? My phone number is . . . " Her words had hardly hit the air waves when the switchboard lit up! My husband was one of the many appreciative callers.
So what's the point of all that? I'm new in Red Room. Is there anybody out there that knows it? Do you care? Want to give me a hint about what to do next? I'd appreciate hearing from you.
