SKYWAVE 4/21 @ 5pm: SHADOW PEOPLE Print E-mail

Image 

Welcome to skywave for live radio play fun. We begin with an episode from the horror series Hall of Fantasy. Originally aired 1953, "The Shadow People" are haunting Elaine when it's dark. They took away her mother, then her father. Elaine will be safe if she can keep the lights on and stay awake..indefinitely? We continue with an episode from the comedy series Fibber McGee and Molly. 1st broadcast 1941, "Fibber Gets His Hand Caught In A Bottle" pretty much sizes up the predicament and hints of perpelxing adventures that once again befall befuddled Fibber. How did he get his hand stuck in a bottle, you ask? Why for a 35 cent cigar. What else? Is there some health lesson implied? Hm?! Well, who won't keep you are our team of talented regs Aaron Roberge, Stephen Medvidick, Leah Holleran, TC and your hearty host, Andy Pettit.

The Jazz Continuum (Saturdays, 6-8pm): Universal Tonality
Hosted by David Brown
WGGT-LP Philadelphia
 

This week we celebrate the important new book on bassist/composer William Parker titled Universal Tonality. Then we jump generations from Coleman Hawkins to Sonny Rollings to David S. Ware. We’ll hear some creatively tuned piano from Hafez Mordrizaha and Satoko Fujii. And finally, we’ll ride the loop around Chicago with flautist Nicole Mitchell, bassists Wilber Ware and Joshua Abrams and take it out with the dual-drumming Dave Rempis Percussion Quartet. Get in groove with The Jazz Continuum.
