Palm Springs Personalities
Part 3 of 3
Today we conclude my interview with Palm Springs celebrity and KNews Radio's Bulldog Bill Feingold: http://www.943knews.com/.
Bill replies: The nickname Bulldog originated during my political campaign for a seat on the City Council. I was one of 10 or 11 candidates. One particular candidate was constantly providing incorrect information. I always corrected that person on these important points. After a time, someone in the audience commented that Mr. Feingold has the tenacity of a bulldog. The moniker has been with me ever since.
I like it and I honor the name bulldog. It is essence of my radio show. It is not a private life nickname
Palm Springs Guru asks: What do you love about Palm Springs?
Bill replies: I love the mountains. I love the weather. I love the people.
Palm Springs Guru asks: How can we improve life in Palm Springs?
Bill replies: Palm Springs should have a full time mayor who lives in Palm Springs.
I learned, during my school years that a person can improve life in his/her community by becoming actively involved with that community.
Therefore, we can improve life in Palm Springs by becoming actively involved with our community.
Not long after becoming a full time resident of Palm Springs, I began attending Palm Springs City Government meetings
Next, I applied for a position on the Palm Springs Human Rights Council. This nine-member Commission is appointed by the City Council. I never heard anything from them. They did not, even, acknowledge my application.
Sometime later, after more effort on my part, I was appointed to the Palm Springs Human Rights Commission. I was the Vice Chair to the Chairman. Soon, I became the Chair and expanded the Commission to include everyone’s rights. I served three years as Chairman of the Palm Springs Human Rights Commission and Hate Crimes Task Force.
I began to get noticed and, thanks to Gary Stone, I was asked to discuss my view points on the radio.
I ran for City Council. I was outspent by every other candidate. I did not get elected.
Palm Springs Guru: Bill, this has been a delightful and insightful interview. In closing, we remind everyone to tune in to the Bill Feingold show, featuring Kevin Holmes, weekdays on KNews Radio, 94.3 FM & 970 AM. The show is on the air from 6 AM to 9AM.

Bill “Bulldog” Feingold.
Thank you Mr. Feingold.
Hey Bulldog fans! Two things to think about:
1. Mark your calendars for next Super Bowl Sunday and think of the movie Grease. Bill Feingold will be hosting the sing-a-long at the McCallum Theater.
2. Stay tuned you might see Bill Feingold on television.
