Local Radio Legend Don Munson was the 2014 GLT Radio Faces speaker. He shared an evening of insight into the future of radio and stressed the importance of strong local news coverage in our community. It was amazing to see how many people in the audience had spent time working in radio. All inspired by Don's warmth and charm in delivering some of the best radio in the country for 55 years. Here him on GLT Thursday nights 7-9 PM for Radio Munson, an ecclectic mix of big band, swing, and hot vintage jazz.
