I think he just got his facts wrong (like getting the names and species of some of the puppets wrong). Fred may very well have done some radio but I don't believe it was for any great length of time. Interesting article though.

this is the kind of hagiography that sells books by people who claim to know Fred, those who feel that parenting itself was exemplified by a man so busy that his own children may have suffered. who believe that parenting demands an "expert". Fred, like Mr. Allmine, appropriated all good ideas as his own. Because those good ideas found form and usefulness through him, and the power he had to imprint upon young souls, those of us who kept the suggestion box full, and fought for our most deeply held beliefs were well pleased.
