This edition of the Old Mole is hosted by Norm Diamond (pictured here), and includes his special feature "Mystery Mole," as well as thoughtful introductions to all the other Moles' contributions. Norm also plays and comments on a song by the Nicaraguan duo Guardabarranco.
Next Monday, September 7, is Labor Day. The Old Mole Variety Hour will not be heard so that Labor Radio can bring you special programming -- to which the Moles will be contribuing.
