An after-Christmas treat is ahead. Half way through the noon hour on Thursday, Dec. 29, I’ll talk about The Colorful Characters of St. Louis on St. Louis on the Air on St. Louis Public Radio, 90.7 KWMU. Don Marsh of St. Louis on the Air and Charlie Brennan of KMOX are by far the best two local radio interviewers.It’ll repeat at 10 and stream here.
