I had no idea that Barry Farber ran for NYC mayor. I remember that I used to listen to his radio program in the 80s and early 90s. He had a great show — very cerebral and folksy at the same time. I think he had a very interesting personal career before radio. He supposedly was a very gifted linguist.

We used to get him locally back in the late 90’s & and early 00’s.

I was privileged to have him do a telephone interview of me for part of one of his shows back then. Other than my ramblings, he always had a very informative & interesting show. [Please forgive the gratuitous name dropping. “15 minutes of fame” and all that, you know.] ;-)

He’s a well educated, experienced, knowledgeable and wise man. I miss his show. We’re stuck with Glenn Beck in Farber’s former time slot.
