That is how the Columbus School Board reacted 31 years ago to the court decision to desegregate Columbus city schools. The process that led to a Federal judges decision that was upheld by the Supreme Court was the focus of a fascinated panel session with several of the primary parties involved in the 1970s lawsuit. Look for the one hour panel session to air on Friday nights in January on WOSU Plus, our digital TV channel. The Dispatch had this review of the evening.

    I started out as an intern at WOSU 820. My last radio airdate was on 820 (December 20, 2008). Irony. But t’s a new dcay and I’m ready for 89.7 (again) … can you use an anchor? :)))) Really …

    I would like to congratulate WOSU about its programming decisions regarding the switch to the FM dial for both classical programming and all news and interview programs.

    Also, I really appreciate having the BBC World News America. It is interesting to get a somewhat different perspective on the news. I found it entertaining that the BBC program spent an entire show reporting on the sentencing of Michael Jackson’s doctor.

    B-o-o-o-o-o ! I am sad to see WOSU am go to 89.7 fm. I listened to Bluegrass Ramble on my 60 year old Crosley floor radio for a long time. Nothing sounds as good as old time radio on an old time radio. Sure, I can pick it up on my Japanese fm radio, but it will never be the same.
