I just wanted to congratulate Joe and Terry Graedon of The People’s Pharmacy on their 1,000th show, which airs this weekend on WUNC-FM.
Unlike in some cities, UNC-TV and WUNC-FM are not affiliated per se (although our Chapel Hill production studios did share the same building with FM until UNC-TV consolidated in its current headquarters in Research Triangle Park in the late 80s) but there has always been a friendly and mutually beneficial relationship between the two, as befitting like-minded public broadcasting entities. As such, the Graedons have been frequent visitors to our airwaves over the years, hosting many specials and lending a hand as on-air talent during fund drives. So it’s a very cool thing indeed to hear they are hitting this milestone.
Congratulations, Joe and Terry! I’ll be sure to snack on a few gin-soaked raisins in your honor.
