Colin Mac is back!

At 1:00 p.m. on Monday, August 31, Colin McEnroe comes back to the airwaves of Connecticut, courtesy of NPR.

I’m thrilled to have him back again, and to know that I can hear him in Fairfield County.  Plus, he will be streamed live online, and if you miss that you can hear his show as a podcast.

They’re calling it The Colin McEnroe Show — not exactly inventive, but recognizable — and it comes complete with a cool new logo.  WNPR describes it as a new “hour-long exploration of news, arts, culture, and life that draws on national and local voices in daily conversation.”  The current deal is for a 13-week pilot series to air weekdays from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on WNPR and online at, beginning Monday, August 31, 2009.

Colin has a unique sense of humor and a biting intellectual curiosity, which serve him wonderfully in print but seem to reach their zenith on radio.  I’m excited that he’s back, and I predict that a national audience will follow as he spreads his wings in a venue that is better suited to his extraordinary talents.

Congratulations, Colin.  We can’t wait to hear your voice again.
