Bernie Eagan: lifelong radio fun

Bernie Eagan is on the air afternoons/evenings at B105.7/WYXB in Indianapolis, and has spent his entire career in Indiana. He's amazingly been with Emmis Communications for over 30 years. He talks about his start in radio when he was 14; working in Hartford City, at WERK in Muncie, and at WENS; what it's like to be blind; how people have responded to him and helped him; braille; how he successfully studied in school; Eric Garnes and Paul Mendenhall; how radio has changed; getting fired; famous people he's met; his DJ business; why he loves radio; advice, perseverance, and more. I got to know him when he contacted me after he listened to the Greg Brown interview I did.
