Michael Harrison’s award-winning international podcast “Up Close and Far Out” serves as the platform for a fascinating conversation with PVR’s Brad Shepard about the legendary TV kiddie shows and hosts of the late ‘40s through early ‘70s. Not to be missed!
Our Pioneer Valley Radio series of special programs, gathered from our live broadcast of the Sheriff Cocchi BBQ, comes to a close with a grand finale, featuring the host himself, Sheriff Nick Cocchi.
This short and sweet program is a glimpse into the honest, direct and warm nature of the Hampden County Sheriff.
“Hail fellow, well met,” are the perfect words to describe Anthony Cignoli, a man located at the heart and nerve center of Western Mass., state and national politics.
His political analysis is highly sought by most media outlets – both nationally and internationally,
Tony dropped by to say “hello” to Michael and Brad at the Cocchi Picnic.
In this thorough, energetic, and unedited conversation, you will hear Tony at his best on the subject of Springfield, Holyoke, the region’s players, high speed rail, the economy, real estate, and other hot topics!
A VISIT TO THE RADIO MUSEUM
Western Mass. resident and Pioneer Valley Radio personality Michael Harrison paid a visit to the nearby Vintage Radio and Communication Museum of Connecticut in Windsor where he interviewed the institution’s Founder and Executive Director, John Ellsworth. Harrison describes the museum as a “regional treasure” that should be visited by residents of the Springfield area interested in the colorful history of radio, TV, and electronic media. This interview appears on Harrison’s locally-produced, award-winning international podcast “Up Close and Far Out with Michael Harrison.” Don’t miss this!
Pioneer Valley Radio’s very own Michael Harrison (also the publisher of TALKERS magazine) of Longmeadow made a rare appearance on WTIC, Hartford on the Fourth of July discussing his involvement in helping that Connecticut station go to an all-talk format 26 years ago! Link to it here.
