Paul: Walter, how old are you?

Walter: Well, I suppose I should say 93 but in a couple of months, if God gives me, I shall be 94.

Paul: I understand that you are the world’s oldest talk show host?

Walter: Yeah I have the Guinness World Record of oldest radio talk show host in the world.

Paul: Did you get a certificate for that?

Walter: I have a certificate yes, it’s a very imposing one and I have a photograph on the wall here with the President of Israel holding the certificate. I am waiting to get an interview with him but it hasn’t come off so far.

Paul: How many shows do you make a week?

Walter: I work for three radio stations, one I have been working for since before I came to Israel, which is nearly 14 years and that is Israel National Radio or Israel National News. I do one a week for them, 52 minutes. I also, since a year and a bit, broadcast for a news station called Israeli News Talk Radio, that is a Fox News affiliate and they get 40 minutes a week. The first programme I told you about is also heard on a small Jewish station in Melbourne, Australia.
