KNON’s Lambda Weekly named 2014 best radio show

Taffet.DavidVoice staff writer David Taffet and his KNON radio show Lambda Weekly co-hosts Patti Fink and Lerone Landis won a 2014 best radio show citation from the Dallas Observer.

According to the citation:

On the air since 1983, Lambda Weekly claims to be the longest-running gay and lesbian radio show on the air anywhere on Earth. We were unwilling to do the work required to substantiate that claim but considered it irrelevant anyway: Lambda Weekly is just such a great show, gay or lesbian or longest-running or not.

I asked my colleague, whom they described as ”genial and well-informed”, what he thought. He said he was “shocked but delighted.” KNON, he said, “is so excited.”

Then he went to Twitter to say the same:

Fortunately, Fink’s partner Erin Moore just joined the Voice staff, so hopefully David’s ego won’t become too inflated.

Congratulations, y’all.

Lambda Weekly has broadcast on 89.3 KNON-FM since 1983 and can be heard live Sundays at noon.

The show is one of the station’s original programs and it’s longevity makes it the longest-running LGBT show on the air anywhere. I’ve worked with the show since 1990 and I host along with Patti Fink and Lerone Landis. Alex Hanselka came on board last summer. He has now created a Web site, records the show and uploads them as a podcast. Listeners can also subscribe through iTunes.
