Audio Journal Volunteer Appreciation Party
In a fun way to show appreciation for their volunteer broadcasters, Audio Journal took them out to the old ball game – with the Worcester Bravehearts – on Saturday, June 21. The ceremonial first pitch was thrown out by the Memorial Foundation for the Blind Board President, Larry Raymond, who is blind. After a fantastic cook out, the Bravehearts pounded the Old Orchard Beach Raging Tide by a score of 19 -1. Rumor has it that the Bravehearts are negotiating with Mr. Raymond to throw out the first pitch for every home game.
Remembering Peggy Allen and Cherie Goldman
Peggy Allen was an unlikely candidate for the air waves. Her soft-spoken, sophisticated manner preferred the background. But duty called and Peg stepped up. Her husband Roy Allen was not only a legendary Audio Journal broadcaster, but also a legendary producer/director in the world of black theatre and later network television. He was the first African American hired by CBS television to manage on prime time. He was responsible for nurturing our radio theatre tradition and he planted the seeds for The African American Experience, our long-running multi-cultural program. It was on this program, after his passing, that Peggy helped produce and host. She was responsible for guests such as Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee and Morgan Freeman. Later she became a valuable voice on our Board of Directors and a dear friend.
Cherie will be remembered fondly by all of us who knew her here at Audio Journal, and by our listeners who tuned in each Tuesday to hear her reading the local store fliers in the Shoppers Guide program.
