Changes In Store For "The Walt Bodine Show"

Well, it's time for me to shift gears bit. Since I'm turning 90 this year, it seems like a good time to scale things back and slow down a bit, but I'll still be around. I'm taking a couple weeks of vacation from my radio show right now. When I get back, I'll still be on the air every Friday to host our two most popular features, The Food Critics and The Movie Critics, and I also have a new project in the works. But KCUR will remain an important part of my life.

I wish I could say thank you personally, on the air, to each person who has participated over the years. I want to express my gratitude to the thousands of listeners and callers who follow my program. I can never forget the great parade of people from all walks of life who have shared their knowledge and experience with our listeners. I especially appreciate the long standing support of our regular guests, and I'm sure their involvement with KCUR and public radio will continue.

I plan to stay active, which includes increasing work on my blog, and publishing a new book. It will include compilations of my writing in a much different style than I've shared in the past, a creative writing streak of short stories, fables, skits, satire, and even a little poetry.

Check back here soon, because in the next few days, I'll be posting the first of a series of excerpts from the new book, a hopefully amusing change of pace from what you've come to expect from me.

(Ed. note: Up next... "Interview With The Dragon," an unusual encounter. M.B.)
