Today on KPCC: Friends 4 Expo’s Darrell Clarke and L.A. Weekly’s Gene Maddaus

I don’t often plug media appearances unless the media personality is directly related to Streetsblog, i.e. their name appears on our sidebar-masthead on the right.  But this one looks too good to pass up, especially since I’ll be on the phone listening in on the Metro Board Meeting, and maybe someone else can listen in and let us know how it goes.

Today, at 10:30 A.M., AirTalk on KPCC 89.3 will air a discussion on the Expo Line between L.A. Weekly reporter Gene Maddaus (“L.A.’s Light-Rail Fiasco”) and Friends 4 Expo Transit’s Darrell Clarke.

Sounds like a good talk.  If you listen in, let us know how it goes.
