WLRN Remembers Robin Gibb

Words by WLRN’s Meredith Porte

That’s our own  Exec Producer Gustavo Sagastume in the far left! 

I have been remembering the many ways that Robin Gibb supported WLRN over the years. I had produced a national pledge special called Making Your Dreams Come True with the Creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul Books Jack Canfield.  This show was produced 15 years ago in the WLRN Television Studios. Robin and Dwina Gibb hosted the premiere party for the program. Our former General Manager Gustavo Sagastume is also in the above photo along with Jack Canfield. Dwina Gibb has blonde hair and is wearing the black jacket.

Images and Voices of Hope also had its very first Miami conversation 13 years ago in the WLRN Studios. Over 100 of  Miami’s leading  broadcast, and print journalists along with  community leaders  participated in this conversation whose theme was about the power of the media to bring benefit to the world. Robin Gibb spoke at our event about  the significance of the words he chose when writing his music.  His son Robin John performed with his rap group at that event as well.

He will be sorely missed by many, and I will forever treasure the fact that I got to work with him.
