You Say It's Your Birthday

Yesterday I mentioned the Times Union's big 150th birthday special edition coming on Friday. You'll want to pick up a copy of that ---as well as several for your kids to bring to school and one to stash down in the cellar for future generations.

While I'm spending the morning with my 150th anniversary edition of the paper and a huge pot of coffee, I'll be listening as the birthday-fest carries over on the radio. WAMC's Roundtable (9am-noon) will broadcast live from the Times Union on Friday, featuring interviews with Paul Grondahl, Ruth Fantasia, and Bill Dowd. As if that's not enough, you'll be able to listen to a live taping of The Media Project, complete with pre and post show banter from Alan Chartock, Rex Smith, and Elisa Streeter.

If this media stuff excites you, expect a morning of orgasmic pleasure.
