Scott McPherson's Upcoming Radio Interview

# 1942



Radio Sandy Springs is a LPAM  (low-power-AM) radio station operating in Sandy Springs, a suburb of Atlanta.  It is a little station with big ideas, and has managed to snag such luminaries as David Nabarro, Henry Niman, and Dr. Pat O'Neal (Dir. Georgia EMS) on their  Infectious Disease program which airs on Mondays at 4 pm ET.


While their broadcast range is limited (albeit helped by repeaters around Atlanta) Radio Sandy Springs also broadcasts on the Internet, and the shows are archived for later listening.


Next Monday Sharon Sanders, editor of Flutrackers will begin the show with her regular weekly update of avian influenza news, and then the rest of the hour will consist of a conversation between the host, David Moxley,  and Scott McPherson. 


Scott, as you probably know, not only blogs on IT issues for ComputerWorld, but also has his own Avian Flu blog.   When he isn't blogging Scott also somehow finds time to be the CIO of the Florida State House of Representatives. 


If this seems like a shameful plug for a couple of good friends . . . well I guess it is.  But it's a slow news day, and it's my blog.   So I'll go forth unrepentant.


Here is the Radio Sandy Springs Press Release.
