WNYC celebrated its 92nd anniversary this past July. Just think, 7-and-a-half short years to the big centennial. In this space we'll be linking to various historical WNYC champions, broadcasts and milestones celebrating nearly a century on the air in the public interest. This week: The Perils of Poetry, Promotion and Postage.
