Sis Kaplan brought Rock N Roll and a fresh, new Big WAYS Radio to a cultural backwater called Charlotte. She faced sexism misogyny and anti-semitism at every step. 
Stuart takes as much of Sis’ time as she has to spare to talk about the birth of WBBM radio on her grandmother’s rooftop in Chicago, playing softball with Edward R. Murrow, whether she prays, being called a “G=D Jew” in her own sorority, covering the Cubs and the White Sox as the first woman in the press box, her cigar chomping husband and partner Stan, and her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah in Israel.
