Barry Mechanic, the host of "The Mechanics of Business" on 1240-AM WOON radio in Woonsocket, RI, invited me on his Saturday morning show to talk a little bit about Austin T. Levy, his unique business and life philosophies, and some news about our process for making a documentary about his life. We discussed Levy's focus on business and the communities where his textile mills were located. Many of his ideas and statements are being collected and edited in a small book on The Business Philosophy of Austin T. Levy. I'll have more information on this soon.
Meanwhile, I've attached an mp3 of the radio program with Barry Mechanic. Please let me know your thoughts or feedback about this program. Feel free to share this podcast with your friends and colleagues.
