The Advocates with Richard J. Garfunkel on WVOX – AM Radio 1460-


Thursday morning September 27th, at 9:00 am, I am hosting my show “The Advocates” on WVOX- 1460 AM on your dial, or you can listen to its live streaming at  One can call the show at 914-636-0110 to reach us on the radio.  Usually the “Advocates” discusses public policy, but this morning our special guest, Mr. Alan Rosenberg will talk about “collecting.”  Alan Rosenberg, a CPA, who has offices here in Westchester and NYC, is a graduate of NYU, a long-time Westchester resident, who was raised in Mount Vernon and has lived in New Rochelle for many, many years. So therefore we are taking a break from the serious issues of the day, and we are going to discuss the art and love of “collecting.” We also expect a call-in from Keith Stupell of New York, one of the leading collectors of German political and economic history, which is featured on stamps, and ephemera.


Meanwhile the mission of the “Advocates” is to bring to the public differing views on current “public policy “ issues. “Public policy,” therefore, is what we as a nation legally and traditionally follow. Over the years the “public policy” of the United States has changed or has been modified greatly. As an example, “free public education” is the public policy of the United States. Also, over time great struggles have ensued over the control of the direction of “public policy” For example: free trade vs. protectionism, slavery vs. emancipation, state’s rights vs. Federalism, and an all-volunteer armed forces or the “draft.”
