FM #450 - The 'Radio Gang' recaps 2020, and looks out to 2021 (audio)

FM #450 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 450 in the series.

This session of the radio show shares the conversation that the “Radio Gang” had during the winter break. We took the time to look back at 2020 and ahead to 2021. We did have our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

The “Radio Gang” as you’ll hear in order of appearance,
  • Pete Fasciano (Executive Director of Franklin TV)
  • Jay Horrigan, sports announcer extraordinaire
  • Jim Derick, host of Chapters, co-host of “Talking the Blues” (with Todd Monjour) and along for the ride with Franklin Falvey on “Frank’s Music” and “Music to lift the Spirit”
  • Dr. Anne Bergen, host of “It Takes a Village”
  • Pandora Carlucci co-facilitator with Jay Horrigan on “A Priest, a Minister and a Rabbi”
The recording runs about about 1 hour and 14 minutes, so let’s listen to the “Radio Gang”   Audio file =

Note: A slightly shorter version of this will be aired on 



We are now producing this in collaboration with Franklin.TV and Franklin Public Radio (
