In the second part of Wednesday's Up to Date, we talk with him about how he got plugged in to do the show, some of his best memories of Cyprus Avenue’s 35 years and take a look at his five favorite artists.
In 25 years of service as the General Manager of KCUR, Patty Cahill has overseen an era of great change at KCUR and witnessed public broadcasting come into its own.
In this conversation with Steve Kraske, Patty reflects upon the connection Walt Bodine had with his audience on the occasion of his last show at the station. They also discuss the future of funding for public broadcasting, Patty's dedication to local reporting and her belief that "we have finally come of age."
