WLS 890-AM Podcast with Bob and Betty Sanders, Choosing the Right Pet for You and Pets Affected by Oil Spill


All in one WLS 890-AM Steve Dale’s Pet World Podcast

Bob and Betty Sanders Radio Comeback:
I’ve been lucky enough to work with SO many greats, like Bob and Betty Sanders. They should be in the Museum of Broadcast Communications Hall of Fame.

I love Bob and Betty, who doesn’t? This is the cover of their 1977 book

I was their producer at the old WCFL Radio, and created a daily feature called “All About Animals.” We even won an national award from the Animal Protection Institute for our efforts. It’s been years since B & B have appeared on the radio. I am proud to have them on this podcast. Betty was a trail-blazer for women, and they are two of nicest people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing in radio.

Pets Die As a Result of Oil Spill
At another radio station – at
another time – I held a benefit to help the LA SPCA which needed to
rebuild after Hurricane Katrina destroyed their facility. It seems they
just can’t get a break. This time, Ana Zorilla of the Louisiana SPCA says the oil spill has actually caused people to give up their pets. She explains in my interview.
