Good eve. Welcome to Skywave ala remote for more live radio play excitement. We begin with the infamous HG Wells tale "The Machine". 1st broadcast 1950, our story begins with invitation to travel to the year 100, 080. After a disappointing tour, the adventurers return to the spot where they landed only to find the contraption gone. Will they find it? Stay tuned to find out and stay on for some comic relief from JP Shanley's piece "A Lonely Impulse of Delight". Hear what happens when a guy wants to introduce to his  friend  the new love of his life- a mermaid. We close with recitations from 2 Romantic poets- first Wm. Wordsworth's "Daffodils" and the Felicia Hemans' "To Wordsworth". Tonight you'll hear the gracious, generous voice of regular Skywave  actor Gary Mitchell along with that of your host all made possible by SFX engineer extraordinaire Tom Casetta!

Exploring Sci-fi Green Solutions: 
New materials and what they might
do for us here on earth

 

 

Picture 

James Tour, Ph.D. is a professor of chemistry, computer science, and materials science and nanogenineering at Rice University. He will discuss a process of making graphene cheaply by a flash Joule heating method. Graphene, the hardest manmade substance, could then be used in a number of ways to lower greenhouse gas emissions, such as in making and using concrete.

Chelsea Heveran, Ph.D., of University of Colorado and Montana State University will tell us about “living building materials”, a new field using living biological matter to make nonorganic objects, including green cement.

Wanna hear how? Listen and find out! We follow with some laughs from  the Battling Bickersons. Originally aired 1945, "The Tax Refund" is a seasonal treat or nagging reminder what's due soon or else.

It's an alternative universe edition of Listen Up! It's April Fools Day and so enter a much needed Reality Free Zone filled with incredibly strange and offbeat music. You will hear Thriftstore disco, moog madness, zany obscuro 45's that defy genre,corporate sales training musical numbers, easy and cheesy listening, bizarre childrens songs about hot dogs, song poems and other audio oddities. Music scoured from thrift stores, run down record shops, yard sale trash bins, discarded boxes on the side of the road, and even the internet.
