If you just can’t get enough of Wengay Newton’s rambling soliloquies by watching on the city’s public access television channel, rest easy.  The City Council’s lone African-American voice now has another microphone at his disposal — a new radio call-in show, “Community News with Newt,” on Praise 1590 AM W.R.X.B. airing every Saturday from 3 to 4 pm.

Can’t say it won’t be entertaining.
