In solidarity with Gillian Coat , Simone ,  their show  ” 7 layer dip ” been abruptly cancelled, add the resignation of Jason , our manager at the station   , the Paris of the South radio hour is taking a leave of absence and will not be on the air next week until changes and new policies  in the structure happen .

At this moment the station  cannot guarantee and support ” freedom of speech”   and the community spirit  that I cherished since I  moved to Asheville 15 years ago.

This last show is dedicated to Gillian, Simone , and Jason and to all of you  who have by your  presence , voluntarism , devotion, passion  and commitment,  created a real community radio during my time (117 shows). On this last one you will hear the greatest French song ever written (with all its covers) ” With time , love goes away  “ by Leo Ferre   .

I love you all , au revoir et a bientot .
