About Radio Living Legend Barry Farber

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barry_Farber

Barry M. Farber (born May 5, 1930) is an American conservative radio talk show host, author, commentator and language-learning enthusiast.  In 2002, industry publication Talkers magazine ranked him the 9th greatest radio talk show host of all time.  He has also written articles appearing in the New York Times, Reader's Digest, the Washington Post, and the Saturday Review.  He is the father of journalist Celia Farber and singer-songwriter Bibi Farber.

Early life and language learning

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Farber is Jewish and grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina.

After nearly failing Latin in the ninth grade, that summer Farber started reading a Mandarin Chinese language-learning book.  A trip to Miami Beach, Florida, to see his grandparents, coincidentally put him in the midst of a large number of Chinese navy sailors in training there.  His Chinese rapidly improved.  Back in Greensboro, he took up Italian, Spanish, and French on his own before summer vacation was over.  He started taking French and Spanish classes in his sophomore year and also learned Norwegian on his own while in high school.  He graduated in 1948 from Greensboro Senior High School (see Grimsley High School).

He then attended the University of North Carolina, where he learned Russian.  As a delegate from the National Student Association to what he later called a "Tito propaganda fiesta called the Zagreb Peace Conference", he found other Slavic languages were closely related to Russian.  A 16-day boat trip back to the United States with Yugoslavs allowed him to practice his Serbo-Croatian.  After covering the Olympic Games in Helsinki one year in the 1950s, he learned Indonesian on another boat trip back to the U.S.

As a newspaper reporter in 1956, Farber was invited by the United States Air Force to cover the airlift of Hungarian refugees from the uprising in Hungary that year.  In an Austrian border village, Farber later wrote, he so impressed a Norwegian man, Thorvald Stoltenberg, with knowledge of the man's native tongue that he was allowed to go on one of the covert missions smuggling Hungarians into Austria.

Farber has knowledge of more than 25 languages, including the ones mentioned above.  He has published a book titled How to Learn Any Language that details his method for self-study.  It is based around a multi-track study of the language, the use of memory aids for vocabulary, and the utilization of "hidden moments" throughout the day.

Farber prefers to say that he is a student of a certain number of languages, rather than saying that he speaks them.  Of the languages he has studied, half he "dates" and the other half he "marries".  According to Farber:  "By languages I date, I mean no grammar and no script, languages like Bengali".

Aside from Bengali, the 25 foreign languages he has studied include these 19 ("marriage" or "dating" specified, when known): Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French (marriage), German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Mandarin, Norwegian (marriage), Portuguese, Russian (marriage), Serbo-Croatian, Spanish (marriage), Swedish and Yiddish, as well as Bulgarian and Korean.

Farber's book, How to Learn any Language never specifies all of the 25 languages that his publicity materials say he has studied.  He says in the book that when he was inducted into the U.S. Army in 1952, he was "tested and qualified for work in fourteen different languages" and has since learned more in some of those languages as well as the others.  He mentioned in the 2005 interview that he still constantly learns bits and pieces of new language—some Albanian phrases or a new phrase each time he went into a grocery store where a Tibetan woman works.

Radio career

His radio career began in New York City, working as the producer for the Tex and Jinx interview program from Peacock Alley in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, a live remote broadcast over WNBC-AM in the mid-1950s at 10:30 PM to Midnight, Monday through Friday.

William Safire hired Farber as a producer.  Farber eventually hosted his own show on WINS.  Begun in 1960, his first talk show was called Barry Farber’s WINS Open Mike.  It was the only talk show on what was then a rock n’ roll station.  He left that job for an evening talk show on WOR-AM in 1962, and then became an all-night host in 1967.  In 1970, he ran for Congress in New York City's 19th district on the Republican ticket, but was defeated by Bella Abzug.  Farber left his talk-radio career for a time in 1977 to delve into politics, running for mayor of New York City, but was defeated.

In November 1977, Kaiser Broadcasting debuted a weekly talk show hosted by Farber as a replacement to its program hosted by Lou Gordon, who died earlier that year, but it was short-lived.

Farber then joined WMCA for an afternoon drive time talk show, which lasted until 1989 when WMCA changed its format to Christian radio.  In 1990 he became a national talk-show host on the ABC Radio Network, which was trying to build a group of nationwide talk shows at the time.  Lynn Samuels was forced to share her local WABC show with Farber which led to on-air confrontations, and resulted in her departure from the station.

ABC's project later was abandoned, and Farber, Michael Castello, and Alan Colmes got together and quickly formed their own independent network called Daynet.  He is now on CRN Digital Talk Radio, weekdays, and on the Talk Radio Network, hosting a one-hour weekend show and filling in for TRN's weekday hosts, most commonly on The Laura Ingraham Show.  Early in the 1970s, Farber was an adjunct professor of journalism at St. John's University in New York.  Often, his former students are heard calling his radio program with admiring words and memories.

On the radio, Farber became easily identifiable by his unique combination of drawn-out Southern drawl, intense delivery, verbose prose, and quick wit.  Sponsors loved his ability to deliver a live commercial spot, often ad-libbed, and make whatever the particular product was sound tantalizing; he always sounded like he truly believed in the product.

In 1991 he was named "Talk Show Host of The Year" by the National Association of Radio Talk Show Hosts.

In 2008 Farber married Sara Pentz, a television news reporter and journalist.

Farber was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2014.

L&L: Laura and Lowell interview Mrs. Naomi Block Manners Stern

Watch interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RB4YsPaChQ0


About Naomi Block Manners Stern

Naomi Block first met Eleanor Roosevelt in the summer of 1941, when she attended the first Summer Student Leadership Institutes held at the Roosevelts' home in Campobello, New Brunswick, Canada. Selected to attend the Institute by the President of Hunter College, Naomi Block was one of five Student Government Associations Presidents attending the Institute that was sponsored by the International Student Service. The Institute was held for two years at the Roosevelt's home before it ended at the outbreak of the war.

A total of 29 student leaders, composed of Student Government Association Presidents, college newspaper editors, and leaders of various student organizations assembled to take part in the five week session of lectures and discussions concerning the role of students in world affairs and campus policies. In addition to lectures conducted by Mrs. Roosevelt, visiting lecturers included Justice Felix Frankfurter, Archibald MacLeish, Walter White, and Louis Fischer.

Ms. Stern writes; "...Mrs Roosevelt not only lectured to us, but also spent time in workshops, evening discussions, and generally getting to know us..."

Naomi Block's relationship with Mrs. Roosevelt continued after the first Summer Student Leadership Institute finished. In October 1941, Mrs. Roosevelt accepted her invitation to be the featured speaker at a Community Day at Hunter College. Later that year, at Naomi Block's request for advice concerning lobbying in Washington D.C. for college students' financial aid from the National Youth Administration (NYA), Mrs. Roosevelt invited her to stay at the White House.

Naomi Block met the President and Winston Churchill, and talked to Senator Harry Truman regarding the NYA. In April 1942, Mrs. Roosevelt spoke at Hunter College's graduation, again in response to Naomi Block's request.

Naomi Block's interest in government service was assisted by a second invitation to stay at the White House by Mrs. Roosevelt in September 1942. Mrs. Roosevelt supplied her with a letter of introduction to a government agency. Although Naomi Block was interviewed, she decided to withdraw her application to remain close to her family and her boyfriend.

During this visit to the White House, Naomi Block again met the President, and Princess Martha of Norway. Later, Mrs. Roosevelt met Naomi and her fiancée at her home and sent the couple a generous wedding gift, being unable to actually attend the ceremony.

Ms. Stern became a successful executive in the cosmetic industry, working at Revlon for twenty-eight years. She rose to become Vice-President of Revlon's retail services and training, becoming the second woman to serve as Vice-President for the company. Ms. Stern was elected to the Hunter College Alumni Hall of Fame. She co-authored Successful Cosmetic Selling with Joan Degenshein and later retired to become a freelance consultant in her industry.

Ms. Stern remained in contact with Mrs. Roosevelt throughout the former first lady's life, keeping in touch through holiday cards and gifts, and visiting her at Valkill in Hyde Park, later at 29 Washington Square West and at 55 East 74th Street in New York.

Ms. Stern summarizes her experiences with Mrs. Roosevelt; "Her presence does not leave my thoughts. So much of what she was I trying to be. Impossible to achieve but well worth trying, I highly treasure my relationship with Mrs. Roosevelt".
