*Do do do do do do, do do* They say it's your birthday. *Do do do do do do, do do* It's birthdays today on Vox Pop as we wish our very own Alan Chartock a happy 71st (and many mooooore!). WAMC's Ray Graf hosts.

In the beginning, the country’s public radio stations decided they needed an organization to provide them with world and national news. Probably based on As It Happen from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, National Public Radio (NPR)’s All Things Considered was started.  If the member stations all kicked in, it was theorized, together they could afford a formidable news-gathering operation.  Today, WAMC alone pays the network more than $800,000 a year. That’s a lot of money.  It’s worth it, but it’s a tremendous burden considering all the other things we do here.

We’ll give you the tooth and nothing but the tooth on this edition of Medical Monday on Vox Pop as we welcome Dr. Joseph Lapinski, a general dentist in private practice, and Dr. Bret Gelder, a board certified oral surgeon. WAMC’s Alan Chartock hosts.
