In the proud and storied tradition of Fight This Generation, the reins of the show have once again changed hands. Concluding a brief hiatus from Radio 1190's schedule, I am pleased to announce the show's triumphant return this summer. Tune in on Monday evenings at nine o'clock when I will serve up a sixty minute dose of highlights from the golden age of classic college radio. I'm honored to revive the rich and distinguished heritage of "Fight This Generation" on Radio 1190.
