9/2 @ 6: Playing With Numbers Print E-mail

Good evening! Welcome to Skywave. We return in September for two new radio play broadcasts. First up is a script from the Quiet Please sci fi series. Titles "The Pathetic Fallacy" from 1948, hear what happens when a scientist questions the human capabilities of a computing machine. maybe it will all add up by the end. Next is another comedy from The Easy Aces series. Titled "Jane Gets A Loan For Her Brother", numbers seem to enter the picture again; this time in the form of money. Hopefully, this one will make more dollars and sense. If not, Skywave will issue a refund payable immediately via the the fortune of laughter you're guaranteed to receive listening to our guest voices; one making his pipes heard for the first time on Skywave- Barry Farber. And making herself a regular on our show- Sherry Brown....along with Jim "Octopus Arms" Harris and your host Andy Pettit. So sit back and spend some time with us by lending us your ears. The investment will be well worth your listening.

FEWSH "KIN SONGS" SPECIAL [Sep. 1, 2014] Print E-mail
(Painting by Albert Anker)
Alright, maybe you're thinking the theme for this particular episode of FEWSH is a little self-indulgent. Really, Reade? A show consisting entirely of music loved by the members of your family? To this your host might conceivably say "well...at least the members of my family have a pretty diverse set of tastes". Family, I love you.
Furthermore, happy Labor Day, everyone (even if it's not celebrated where you are).

reckless curiosity: sat, aug 30 (5-7pm) Print E-mail



The daily grind, the rat race, the ol' 9 to 5...this week's Reckless Curiosity is all about work. Despite your opinion about unions these days, the labor movement's long, tumultuous history of struggle against the bosses has not only won us some basic labor rights like the 8-hour work day (still too long?), and the weekend, it has also left us lots of great songs to fight the power...because the struggle has evolved and continues. Tune in sometime between 5-7pm today to hear Rage Against the Machine cover "Maggie's Farm", some chain gang songs recorded by Alan Lomax and plenty of union classics. Playlist updated below.
