Venerable radio host Paul Sidney, 69, dies

As the news of Paul's passing is spreading through radio circles nationwide it has come to me via an email from a radio person in North Dakota. Paul's fame was nationwide. He was-as another post here said-the best of the best. Paul gave me my start in on the air radio in 1965..Were it not for him I would not have spent the last 45 years in this business and as I wipe away a tear and ask God to shelter and protect his soul I can only say Thank You Paul."

Stony Brook University will announce drastic cuts to Stony Brook Southampton

This is totally uncalled for. I was Class of 1968. Southampton was for me and many a place to be educated by an incomparable teaching staff and to grow into adulthood in an area that is unparalled in beauty and history. The cutback/closing saddens me greatly. I am no longer a resident of the State of New York and feel relieved to be a resident of a State where education and community enrichment come ahead of selective budget cuts. " Apr 6, 10 7:31 PM

Judge rules that cuts to Stony Brook Southampton violate state law

Makes me smile. A lot of people won by virtue of a wise decree from the bench." Aug 30, 10 9:04 PM

Radio station gets brief reprieve

Would it not make more sense for the folks at Stony Brook to wait and see what type of possible offers they have from the other groups before cuttiing ties with Peconic? They could negotiate with the other groups while the WLIU agreement is left pending so that their deadline is contingent upon presentation of an acceptable offer by one of the other groups at which point Peconic would have to pay or terminate. I wonder if one of the other potential deals is with a nationwide Christian group which operates K-LOVE and Air 1. WLIU was a dream of mine when I did my undergrad work at Southampton (class of 1968). I was glad to see the station come about albeit after my graduation. The loss of it's unique and community based programming would be a true loss to the radio listeners served by it's signal. " Aug 31, 10 6:04 PM
