Ken Franklin, me, Debra Lane, Clem Balanoff, Mike Klonsky and Elmondo Pass on Hitting Left with the Klonsky Brothers.

I liked Ken Franklin the moment he walked into our Lumpen Radio studio for our broadcast/podcast of Hitting Left with the Klonsky Brothers a couple of weeks ago.

Ken Franklin is president of Local 308 of the Amalgamated Transit Union.
