‘Sylvia & Friends’ comes to a close at the end of this month

Sylvia McNair

Dear Friends,

Sylvia & Friends is at least half YOU, my friends all over the country. But after more than five years of weekly broadcasts, I have decided it's time to bring Sylvia & Friends to a close. It's been grand and I've loved every minute of it, but it's time for me to begin my retirement.

As I have said SO often, one of the greatest parts of being at WFIU has been working with people who are half my age and twice as smart: Joe Goetz, Mark Chilla, Aaron Cain, and John Bailey. They've made it tremendous fun and I shall miss them all.

And I will miss YOU too! Knowing your radios were on in Bloomington and your streaming devices were on in Tucson, Santa Fe, Mansfield, Boston, and Washington, DC to hear some stories and listen to music together has brought me great joy. THANK YOU ALL!!

—Sylvia McNair
