Leonard Lopate: 25 Live on WNYC!

Friday, March 05, 2010

We’ll celebrate Leonard Lopate’s 25 years on WNYC by revisiting some of the show’s most memorable moments. On the Media’s Brooke Gladstone takes us through interviews with Henry Kissinger, Barack Obama, Carol Channing, and many more (including one with the inventor of the female condom). Plus, a James Beard Award-winning segment that featured an on-air "smell" experiment with Ruth Reichl and Daniel Boulud.

Find out more about Leonard’s 25th anniversary on WNYC, and the celebration “Music, Memories, and Mockery,” on March 25 at Cooper Union here.

When i heard they were putting together this retrospective the first thing that came to my mind was whether they would play the "lemons with Relish" gaffe. Everyone should devour their lemons with Relish!
