Associate Producer of Barry Gordon From Left Field

Progressive Talk Radio Show with Top Guests from the Worlds of Politics and Entertainment

The show was hosted and executive-produced by Barry Gordon, the longest-serving president of the Screen Actors Guild.

Barry created the show when the last Air America Radio affiliate shut down in Los Angeles. Barry launched the show on KCAA — then the Air America Radio Affiliate in Riverside / San Bernardino, the 25th Largest U.S. Radio Market — where it aired in 2006 – 2007

I was the associate producer of most of the episodes.

Through publishers and publicists, I booked most of the guests, which included senators, congressmen, best-selling authors, and entertainment figures.

I created the show’s Web site, which features many hours of audio archives, indexed by guests and dates and searchable by keywords.
