I'll be back on the radio this Friday, August 11 with another NPR commentary. As usual, my piece will be the wrap-up on WAMU's Metro Connection show, around 1:50 p.m. EST. You can listen live in the DC area at 88.5 FM or online at wamu.org. About an hour after the original broadcast, the show will be archived on WAMU's site, and you can find it at your leisure in the Metro Connection archives. (Also at metroconnection.org...)
If you haven't heard any of my Metro Connection commentaries before, they all feature some local flavor for the DC area. This time, I'll be talking about my mom being a WASP as an introduction to the Women in Military Service for America Memorial at Arlington Cemetery. If you're swinging through DC, consider a stop at the memorial - you can look up my mom in the memorial's Register! (Wow, this is a link-a-licious entry, huh?)
As always, thanks for listening. Hope you enjoy the show! And congrats to David, who normally hosts the show and is responsible for/guilty of putting me on the air in the first place. He's off for a couple of weeks to enjoy being a dad to a brand-spankin' new baby boy. Enjoy your time with the kiddo, David!
