CultureGrrl on Philadelphia Public Radio

This could get to be habit forming:
Now I’ve been asked to expound on museum acquisitions and deaccessions (pegged to the “Gross Clinic” story and its aftermath) on Philadelphia’s NPR affiliate, WHYY (91 FM). The show is “Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane,” this Monday, from 11 a.m. to noon.
At this writing, they plan to have a representative of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts precede me and an arts attorney succeed me. I’m going to feel like a deaccessions sandwich on toast. Don’t they know that CultureGrrl has the last word?
If you’re not a Philadelphian (or even if you are), you can stream it live here. Or listen afterwards here.
After enduring my pompous pronouncements, you may understand why this station is aptly named: WHYY??? When do I get my Charlie Rose gig?
UPDATE: I see that my new AJ blogging colleague, Scott McLemee, is also a radio star!
