Doug Sandberg and a friend combined their curiosity and creativity with electronic parts they bought at supply stores in New York city and built a small radio station when they were teenagers. Sandberg did not know then of the unique experiences ahead in his life.

The Vietnam-era veteran served at Minot Air Force base in North Dakota from 1968 to 1972. There he performed service work inside the silos of minuteman intercontinental missiles and watched as B-52 bombers departed for missions over Vietnam.

After the Air Force, Sandberg embarked on a career in the electrical industry.

His life swung virtually full circle in retirement. He returned to radio in 2018. Today he hosts a program called “Let’s Talk Vets” on a public station in New York state. Featuring a myriad of veterans’ issues, the show has been an eye opener for Sandberg. Join us to hear what Doug has learned, and why he has no intention of leaving the studio.

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
