Program 3103
11/19/04: This second show celebrating the 30th anniversary of Comment, which went on the air November 11, 1974, brings back two former regulars: Bob Johnson and Ferrell Wellman. Also joining us is long-time panelist Jamie Lucke, who writes editorials for the Lexington Herald-Leader and is a regular guest.

Bob Johnson did a lot of analysis for the show in the 1970s and ’80s, when he was political writer at the Louisville Courier-Journal. He is now retired. When Ferrell Wellman’s day job was covering Frankfort for WAVE-TV in Louisville, he shared the background on the news with us on many Friday nights. He is now an assistant professor of journalism at Eastern Kentucky University.
