Hitting Left with the Klonsky Brothers episode #19.


My brother Mike and I are back from our Hitting Left Left Coast Listening Tour.

This is my first blog post since returning after a terrific three days in the land of my formative years and teenage angst.

We had to get back for this morning’s #19 edition of Hitting Left with the Klonsky Brothers and our special in-studio guest, Ed Marszewski.

Ed is a Bridgeport guy and a visionary. A kind of a south side futurist.

He claims to be a product of the sixties without having the luxury of having actually lived through that great decade.

Someone described this episode of Hitting Left with the Klonsky Brothers as a radio version of Seinfeld.

Rather than being about nothing, it was really about everything, less un-moored and more wide-ranging.

Which not only made it the best show ever, but the one with the most laughs.

Don’t let that keep you from taking in the many serious points that are made.

There are plenty.

  1. Hi Fred,
    Retired Canadian educator here.
    I admire your tenacity
    and drive very much and always enjoy your posts.
    It is amazing to me the theft and the underfunding that takes place in
    Chicago schools. I abhor the charter school movement and its advocates.
    I think of you as the canary in the mine shaft. What you experience inevitably
    seems to spew from the mouths of Canadian cons.
    As a Music teacher, I was/am only too aware of the bullshit that is
    continuously trotted out, identifying the Arts as frills. This is so frustrating
    when every study has shown that student scores rise with the
    maintenance of effective Arts programmes. This is particularly true
    of the connection between Math and Music.
    It is incredible that
    politicians can ignore such evidence and continue to push for
    more standardized testing and the elimination of Arts programming.
    You are likely aware that in Canada we do little standardized testing and
    what we do is controversial.
    Best regards to you and your brother from the great white north.
    Yours sincerely,
    Dennis Wright
    BSc, MEd.
