A socially conscious performer, director, and writer, best known as Hawkeye in the tv show M*A*S*H, Scientific American Frontiers, and his current podcast “Clear and Vivid,” Alan Alda was born on this date in 1936. A diverse playlist will celebrate the equally varied endeavors of Alan Alda on Crosscurrents, 1/28 at 8 am.
The plan is for the show on Monday to include some edited segments of interviews with Alan Alda in between the tunes designed to celebrate his birthday. Of course, we hope that teechnology and my editing skills allow us to produce the show in the desigtned manner.
