The late Casey Kasem used to end his show with “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.”
Larry London, host of Voice of America’s “Border Crossings” program, seems to have lived that motto. Based in Washington, he takes requests from around the world, including postcard requests from Tibet to Facebook requests from Nigeria. He arrived at that unusual posting via stops in Michigan, Hong Kong Tokyo and more. From his Washington post he gets to occasionally meet the artists whose songs he’s been playing. Here he poses with Aretha Franklin after her appearance on the show.
