I blogged yesterday about Cardinal Egan’s “interview”:http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=local&id=4865524 with Channel 7, which will air in full on Sunday at 11 a.m.
I forgot to mention that “The Catholic Channel”:http://www.sirius.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Sirius/Page&c=Channel&cid=1158082409509&s=prog kicked off on SIRIUS Satellite Radio a few weeks ago and that Cardinal Egan has a weekly program. It airs on Thursdays at noon and repeats on Sundays at 9 a.m. (right before Mass from St. Patrick’s Cathedral).
During his show, Egan answers questions submitted to email@example.com.
I haven’t been thinking about The Catholic Channel, I suppose, because I haven’t heard it. I don’t have satellite radio and don’t think I know anyone who does.
I would love to hear the channel, the programming for which is produced by the Archdiocese of New York. I know that Joe Zwilling, the long-time spokesman for the archdiocese, worked hard all summer to get everything ready to go. The program director is Rob Astorino, a well-known radio personality in Westchester (where he also lives).
From the looks of it, there’s a lot of promising stuff. I’d like to hear Dave and Susan Konig’s show, Lino Rulli (“The Catholic Guy”), Father Paul Keenan and others. And I’d certainly like to know what Cardinal Egan thinks about the issues of the day.
I may have to bite the bullet and get SIRIUS. Not that I have a problem with satellite radio. It sounds great. But I hardly have any free time now and don’t know when I would get to listen to it.
I have no interest in Howard Stern, by the way. And it has nothing to do with the fact that I’ve been asked, probably 10,000 times, if I’m related to him. I’m not.
