Welcome Hudson Valley to this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations.  

Two weeks down to 2023! I can already say that I have so much to be thankful for this year, and In Touch is one of them! 

This week’s guests are Ken and Dewey from the Marist College Center for Lifetime Study. The Center is an educational organization, non-profit, affiliated with Marist College that allows Seniors who live in the area to continue their education.  The program offers noncredit courses where they bring in experts and volunteers to teach. This program goes to show you that education goes far beyond the traditional classroom, and it is available to everyone. Learning and growing never has to stop.  

We invite you to join us, and listen to a previously recorded conversation between Ken, Dewey and myself here on In Touch. 


This has been this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations. We want to give a big thank you to Ken and Dewey. Their website is www.marist.edu/professional-programs/cls. The phone number is 845-575-3902.
