radio_curious_logoAttorney Barry Vogel is host and producer of Radio Curious. He says his desire to create mental images from radio voices comes from his childhood memories of awakening in a warm bed on wintry Saturday mornings, listening to “Let’s Pretend.” The end of those all-too-short weekends was heralded each Sunday evening by the booming voice of Walter Winchell greeting “Mr. and Mrs. America” with the news of the week, as the wafting aroma of family dinner yielded yet another invisible wonder in the kitchen. Fifteen years later, his first regular radio programs were broadcast in Peru, where Vogel served as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Radio Curious first aired on Mendocino County Public Broadcasting in 1991 and has since aired on many public radio stations in North America and other continents.
