Media Matters

Dave Roth ’85 and his January 23 concert with jazz trumpeter Warren Vaché Jr. got a lot of attention from local media. There was a feature in the arts section of the Morning Call (January 18) and an interview on WDIY-FM (January 20). And there was an appreciative fan letter in the Morning Call from a man who just loved the “Dave Roper Trio.” Such is fame.

• Adjunct faculty member Jack McCallum, who teaches journalism, talked about the strengths and weaknesses of his students in the December issue of Attaché, the in-flight magazine of U.S. Airways. The article, “Who Knows?,” was about the transmission of knowledge in this generation. Jack is a staff writer for Sports Illustrated.

Rosalind Remer, associate professor of history (on sabbatical) was quoted in the Philadelphia Inquirer for a story by Stephen Salisbury on the remains of slave houses excavated during the building of the National Constitution Center. “A More Perfect Philadelphia Story” discusses the city as a birthplace of American diversity. Ros is former program director of the center.

• Payne Gallery was featured January 22-24 on Tempo, the Lehigh Valley magazine of Channel 39. Focusing on Janos Enyedi’s small-scale sculpture of American industrial structures, the segment interviewed Priscilla Payne Hurd, chair of the Board of Trustees; Diane Radycki, assistant professor of art history and director of the gallery; and Moravian students.

Mary Beth Spirk, women’s basketball coach and assistant athletic director, was interviewed January 22 on WDIY-FM. With her were senior forwards Kim Hughes, Manasquan, New Jersey, and Tracie Shipman, Philadelphia. They discussed Title IX and other issues facing women in sports.

Btw, Tracie sustained a knee injury in the January 26 game against Muhlenberg but is getting around campus on crutches and says she’ll be back in the game soon.
