George Kilpatrick talked recently with Networking guru George Fraser  on New Inspiration for the Nation about the difference between “being ready” and “getting ready” for your business pursuits.

Syracuse in many ways is a city of churches. I recently caught up with on-air personality Lula Townsend, who has a radio show on 1540 WSIV-AM. Her show brings the church experience to the shut-ins, retirees and those unable to make it to Sunday services.

At one time Townsend’s Classic and Traditional Gospel Hour was on three times a week, but now she’s cut back to once. Each Monday she is in the studio shuffling vinyl records, reading Bible verses to her listeners, and answering phone calls.

I’ve always enjoyed Mrs. Townsend’s show, because in addition to providing informal history lessons about Syracuse, her voice is a true echo of our city’s Southern roots.

When did you come to Syracuse: I came from Miami, FL in 1953.

Who inspired you: I credit Rev. Walter C. Blue who was on WSOQ radio in the 1960s.

What is your favorite song: Bless me now Blessed Savior.

What is your motto: Pray without ceasing.

What does Syracuse mean to you: Syracuse has always been [for me] the center of hospitality and home of brotherly love.

I found out that former Syracuse Raging Bullz (ABA) Coach Terrill Dean has a weekly radio show. Dean weighs in on sports topics and provides dialogue about the industry with contemporary flavor.

One of his guest commentators is Phinesse Demps (who used to work in Syracuse).

The Coach Dean Show  features a  call-in segment as well.

Local media personality George Kilpatrick began offering a podcast of his New Inspiration for the Nation show this week. I look forward to listening since I often miss the initial broadcast (on Sundays).
