Mark Marks the Spot

Mark McGuire paid a visit to the WAMC fund drive Wednesday morning. How do I know this? Because every five minutes Alan Chartock kept talking about how he was there in the studio writing a story that will run in Friday's TU. If you could feel someone quirm over the radio, people would have been driving off the road all over the Capital Region.
McGuire also heard Alan play clips of what's been the highlight of the 700-thousand dollar fundraiser so far, his interview with folk legend Peter Yarrow. Yarrow, in town for an Alice Green for Mayor event, explained in song that no, Puff the Magic Dragon is NOT about smoking reefer ---and played a fractured but heart rending version of my favorite Peter, Paul and Mark song, Right Field. The fund drive continues...
