THE ART SCENE program is on hold until someone is found to replace me.

... The same timeslot will be available (thank you, KOWL!) though the format may change depending on the host or organization at the mic.  It has been a totally wonderful experience these past 7+ yrs, and I can't think of any "job" or work I've ever enjoyed more.  My sincere thanks to all of you who supported this effort to bring the Arts into our communities over the airways.  PLEASE LISTEN to any of the over 200 podcasts currently on file on this site and continue to talk about the importance of the Arts to all of us! ~ Robert Schimmel
