On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Ed Walker helped found WAMU as a tiny college AM station in 1951. He’s been a fixture of Washington D.C. radio ever since, entertaining and educating audiences as a member of the “Joy Boys” and as a disc jockey. For the past 19 years, he’s hosted the “Big Broadcast,” bringing drama classics from the 1930s, 40s and 50s to new listeners. Kojo sits down with hometown radio pioneer Ed Walker.
