3/17 @ 6p: Skywave Mystery Replay! Print E-mail

hey guys,

Please listen to a replay as the Skywave team takes this week to search for new material. I have taken this opportunity finally to insert an image of an actual skywave(there are many) with a handy explanation included. Sort of related to the concept of short wave, this term applies to Gtown's wave reach and is the source of inspiration for our show's title.( Although I should probably have Joe from Science 2.0 come on to explain the concept in depth.) If hankering for thoughtful weekly discussions on all thing science, check out Joe's show every saturday at 3. Finally, this is the anniversary of the first radio play show Skywave performed! See you next week with 2 two radio play presentations.Enjoy...

3/3 @ 6 sharp:The Season That Keeps On Giving! Print E-mail

Good evening. Welcome to frosty Skywave. When does it end? In anticipation of the approaching mix of frozen particles which seem to be hovering in a permanent holding pattern waiting to emit bundles of ice needles at 70 mph eternally into our numb beyond blue veins, we have a rambunctious recording of a live performance of a radio play that addresses the above subject- winter blues. The plot: A crank yold hermit is alone in his shack during an approaching blizzard in the back woods of Tennessee. There's no one around for miles until stranded snooty New England motorists arrive, his pesky neighbor, and bandits on the run from local goofball police followed by a special detective from Memphis.  Aside from the live sound effects, you'll hear the voices of Allyson Frick, Paul Gordon, Jim Harris, Leon Joshlin, Don Kaywash, Loretta Lucy Miller, Randy Shupp, and your host Andy Pettit.  This March 2013 broadcast of "The Storm" is dedicated to Don Kaywash. We know he's listening.
