A New Show Debuts!

High Noon on Thursday, March 27, the Great Binnie Klein and I launch a new Radio Adventure on WPKN, 89.5FM in Ct and Long Island, and live at: Home Page or here if you can’t listen live.

It will be a LIVE hour of radio on the home – in design, the human condition, literature and humor: there will be music, recorded features, and YOU, the engaged participant of one of the Big Three: we all eat, wear clothing and come home. Home Page will look at houses from a new perspective in a time where a new normal has made Dream Homes more dream than possibility. To find our way home, we need to know what we value – and what we value depends on where we are in life: allow me to engage you, dear reader, in a thought experiment:

Find Your Home in this List, leave a comment about where you are: we may just use it on the show!

Homes Get A Life – where are you?

-home design and where we are in our lives – a series of pieces describing the prototypic home requirements as our lives evolve 

The First Place – IKEA, paint and plants

The Coupled Launch – When Which Bed, Closet Space Allocation, and Combining Kitchens measures the balance of domestic gravitas in a relationship

The Plunge – The first owned home and the balance of money, style and neighborhood

The Family House – When children become the client – hiding, choreographing and celebrating the chaos that is the pre-teen home

The 20 Year Home – The diapers are gone, homework has begun – when a home must seamlessly accommodate the overwhelming schedules and changes of full on family-raising

The Half-Full Nest – They go away/they come back – when bedrooms are museums and flop houses – combining the SRO and middle age in the family home

Will We Stay or Will We Go? – Whether the 20 Year Home becomes the rest of your life home – the criteria for selling and finding a new place or renovating for the rest of your life

Making Home Fit Body – As our bodies “evolve” our homes have to, or they become places of frustration versus safe harbors – the tools that can make any home a hospitable place for easier living

The Place of Rest – The ways a home can accommodate become a comfort when you have finally reached a time of reflection and repose
