Axelbank on the Radio, Baez Cuts Class, and More Bronx News of the Day for Aug. 13

Gary Axelbank, former BronxTalk AM host on BRONXNET, will broadcast his unique brand of Bronx issues commentary on 1460AM/WVOX tomorrow night from 7 to 8 p.m. and stream it live at www.wvox.com. The show is scheduled to also air for the three following Wed. evenings.
According to a press release, tomorrow Axelbank will focus on "community self-determination" and he’ll "take calls about the Yankee Stadium project, the Kingsbridge Armory, jails in Hunts Point, the water filtration project, and other issues on listeners' minds.”

In July the Norwood News reported that Baez had missed about half of the Council sessions from January to April 2008.
