I had the privilege of being able to guest host last Wednesday on South Shore News and Views. The program airs on WVBF AM 1530. SSN&Vs is hosted by Jack White, Murray Vetstein and Bob Wisgirda. You could say this program is where I got my real start in radio. I got to see how a program is set up start to finish, and learn some of the important tasks that go into making a radio show work.
South Shore News and Views airs every Wednesday from 1-3 PM. You can also listen to this program on the Tune-In App on your phone or listen on your computer by going to http://www.hometowntalkradio.com/ and clicking dog to listen live. If you want to find out what is going on around the South Shore, this is the place to be. They love it when people call in to the show. The number is (508) 822-1106.
Wednesday, April 19th Julie Lovely came on the show and talked about the program she runs to help combat veteran suicide.
I was interested to hear about her work and how Horses for Heroes helped veterans suffering from PTSD and TBI. It is heart wrenching going to funerals for brothers and sisters who feel that there is no other option.
Julie talked about the program, how it got started, and how horses are well suited to help veterans. I was drawn into how she started with an idea to help someone and now it is something that changing lives. Julie wasn’t there to pat herself on the back, but to tell us how a horse can help someone who is suffering on the inside. I was hooked. WVBF and South Shore News and Views cares about our military and veterans, and I was glad to be a part of this show. Julie closed out the show by talking about the upcoming benefit dinner on May 20th. I will have the link below. Please check out the website and social media links below.
