Catskill Character Saturdays 11:30 AM

Today on CATSKILL CHARACTER this Saturday, my guest will be John Olsen of Narrowsburg, NY. Originally from Dayton, Ohio and a graduate of Miami University in Ohio, John had a chance encounter with Frederick R. Koch that changed his life forever. John, who’s life was anything but dull right up to the moment he met Mr. Koch, was given access to a world he would never have known, through his friendship with Fred. For the last 15 years of Fred’s life, John worked for him as his aide de camp. He’s got stories and fond memories of his incredible friend who was a scholarly collector of objects and historic manor houses and frankly, nothing like his brothers David and Charles who were deeply involved in Libertarian politics and the business of fossil fuels. Fred preferred to support the arts and quietly donated millions of dollars to the arts and historic preservation. Don’t miss John Olsen, this Saturday at 11:30, right after Farm & Country, on Radio Catskill! Listen On-Air, Online, On Your Smartphone, and On Your Smart Speaker! Website:
