In celebration of SPR's 40th anniversary and of everyone who has supported us for so many years, we will be airing an exclusive, live broadcast call-in show with Dr. Zorba Paster on September 24, 6 p.m. on both KPBX 91.1 and KSFC 91.9.
Dr. Paster will talk about current health topics including COVID-19, vaccine work, and take your phone calls. Zorba may even have a recipe to pass on. The call-in show will be hosted by Doug Nadvornick.
Dr. Zorba Paster is so popular in the Spokane area that often when his show is broadcast he has at least one call from our region, if not more. Dr. Paster has also been to Spokane two times in connection with Spokane Public Radio. His first visit included Tom Clark at North Central. His second visit was at the Bing in 2014 and included discussions of his book, The Longevity Code: Your Personal Prescription for a Longer, Sweeter Life. While practicing medicine, appearing on the program, and writing columns, Zorba also has a Facebook page. Recently he has been following COVID-19. The page is titled Zorba Paster On Your Health. You can find his program website page here.
About Zorba Paster On Your Health, broadcast on KPBX Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m and on KSFC Sunday from noon to 1 p.m.
Each week, family doc Zorba Paster and sidekick Tom Clark team up with callers for an hour of upbeat, entertaining talk about healthy living.
Family doc Zorba Paster's enthusiasm and contagious laugh have made him a favorite with health-conscious public radio listeners for more than a decade. The Chicago native first appeared on radio as a guest expert on Wisconsin Public Radio's statewide news magazine, Morning People, with Tom Clark. The two clicked, and Zorba became a regular guest on Clark's statewide, morning drive-time call-in show. They were so well received that WPR teamed the two for the weekly, national talk show. Zorba mentors medical students as a clinical professor in the Dept. of Family Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He also keeps busy with a family practice, numerous speaking engagements, and travels abroad. His book, The Longevity Code: Your Personal Prescription for a Longer, Sweeter Life, was published in February 2001.
