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.
