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.

Program 3104
11/26/04:

“Welcome to the third of three programs celebrating the 30th-anniversary month of Comment on Kentucky. We went on the air November 11, 1974, and here to help us celebrate this Thanksgiving weekend are David Hawpe, editorial director and vice president of the Courier-Journal; Sylvia L. Lovely, CEO and director of the Kentucky League of Cities and president of the New Cities Foundation; and Ernest Yanarella, Ph.D., author and professor of political science at the University of Kentucky.

“For this show, we want to take a look at what might be ahead for Kentucky for the next 30 years. ‘Thinking about the future is a prudent idea,’ a girlfriend of my wild youth once said (as she was becoming my ex-girlfriend), ‘because that’s where you’ll likely spend your time.’”

—Al Smith
