Denizens of Boston may be interested in the premiere of a new radio show this weekend, “Real Clear Radio Hour with Bill Frezza” brought to you by the Competitive Enterprise Institute. It will air from 10:00-11:00 AM on Bloomberg radio’s WXKS 1200AM & WJMN 94.5FM-HD2. You can also find it on several Internet services (at the link). I’ve been working with Bill and CEI on the rollout (in my capacity as a CEI board member) and I think it is a show that VC readers will find appealing. It is pitched at a high level of listener sophistication and is many ways sort of an NPR without the not-so-sutble political agenda. Bill himself is a fascinating guy, a serial entrepreneur and founder of several technology start-ups, and his guests Saturday reflect his interests, particularly new ways of thinking about solutions to pressing public policy problems and the powerful impact of individual entrepreneurship in addressing political, social, and economic issues. The guests on this Saturday’s show are illustrative:
Tune in Saturday morning for the debut program, featuring two very different kinds of entrepreneurs—Will Galvin of Self Help Africa who will discuss his distinct foreign aid and community investment model and Jonathan Downey of Airware, who’s proving that drones are bigger business than military.
