Oct. 24 — Sunday afternoon radio

iCal Import
Start:
January 1, 1970 12:00 am

We will be on the weekend edition of All Things Considered at 5:40 p.m. Philadelphia time on WHYY-FM, 90.9. We were interviewed by Guy Raz about a month ago in Washington and have been waiting for the show to be aired. We’re told that our 28-minute interview will be cut, perhaps as much as two-thirds, but we remain excited to listen.

When they are not writing, Dan Biddle and Murray Dubin love to talk -- especially about the book. Invite them to speak to your book club, church, college class, civil war commemoration, fraternal group, library event, historical association meeting and more.

Video Introduction



We like to talk. Our publicist put us in front of a video camera, asked three questions and then crossed his fingers. We're probably a little too serious at the beginning, but we loosen up as the video goes on.

This broadside is eight feet high and was seen on windows in downtown Philadelphia in June, 1863, as black leaders called a meeting to convince black men to join the Union Army prior to Gettysburg.
