Can Caitlin Cieri write and produce 1 brand new audio drama every month for a year? She can with the help of Germantown Radio, a bevy of savvy actors, and a whole bunch of public domain sound effects. Whether it's historical or hysterical, tragedy or travesty, doZen delivers.

For the first 24 days of December, Caitlin has completed an Audio Drama Advent Calendar where she must include one random sound effect each day in her script. And now, you get to hear a live reading of her Audio Advent Calender Play...about an American Sikorsky H-19 Chickasaw that gets lost in England?

Starring Marisol Custodio, Edward Osredkar, Jennifer Shorstein, Emily Hill, Issa Kabeer, Moumita Ghosh, and more! Sound effects provided by the BBC and Freesound.org

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

In the decades that I’ve been infatuated with Jazz, I never gave time to vocalists. Then I heard Cécile McLorin Salvant sing. I finally got it. The phrasing, melodic improvisation, and rhythmic subtlety of jazz vocalists bring a new dimension to the music. I’ve been on a vocal tangent, exploring this unfamiliar dimension with a new found excitement. For today’s show, we’ll sample vocalist in the jazz tradition as well as some that push those boundaries.
