On The Media

Summer Listens #1

Welcome to our new summer series!

Each week through Labor Day, we'll be pulling an OTM gem from our vast archives for you to enjoy on the beach, in a park... or on a sticky subway, while imagining you're on a beach. 

For our first installation, a very classic and very special piece from one of our favorite contributors, John Solomon. If you've ever wondered about the inner workings of On the Media, you'll be sure to enjoy this one. 

In 2010, John passed away from complications with leukemia, but his witty, incisive voice can be heard in many of his OTM pieces, like this one called "Playing One on TV" and many more

To hear more of our summer listening, don't forget to subscribe to our podcast on iTunes, or wherever you get your podcasts, and leave a review while you're there! And as always, follow us on twitter @OnTheMedia.
