Join host Greg Capogna as we present a look back at how the Lehigh Valley's first public radio station defied the odds and went from dream to reality, as told by some of the volunteers who made it possible.

Greg's guests are: Cheryl Haughney (Board President), Charles James (Board member and Rhythm & Roots host), Neil Hever (Operations Director and Hidden Charms host), and Rick Weaver (Celtic Faire host). Plus, stay tuned at the end for a segment from the archives voiced by the late Bob Cohen, WDIY's first classical music host.
