Aaron Belz can still remember when Thriller came out, can summon up the songs in his head "like lightning". Like for a lot of us, Michael Jackson defined an era for Aaron. Within 10 minutes of hearing the news of Jackson's passing, Belz penned this poem.

Debut of the ITL "Listener Cold Call"

Posted at 3:14 PM on June 26, 2009 by Jeff Horwich (0 Comments)

OK, an experiment:

When we gathered with listeners a while back, one of the ideas they pitched was that we essentially "cold call" listeners to talk about what's in the news. (It hearkens back to our live-audience days, when anyone could join in the conversation about the ideas and trends we were covering. Lots of folks miss that dynamic, and I do too.)

Hmmm. Worth a shot.

Our first guinea pig was Colin Ernst. On the agenda: Health care reform & Iran.
