Salute to Carl Kasell Show

May 4, 2018

Legendary radio broadcaster Carl Kassell, who recently died at age 84, began his broadcasting career hosting a fake music show using his grandmother’s windup Victrola. He went on to team with Charles Kuralt at University of North Carolina to start a new radio station before joining forces with NPR. After years as a newscaster, he joined the cast of the popular radio show Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! We salute his passing with this offering on the health effects of chocolate and strawberries, prolonged sitting, and conditions the British National Health Service does not feel they should be bothered with.

Tip:  According to the American Family Physician journal, average-risk women with no symptoms should be screened every three years for cervical cancer.
