Radio the way it should be

I mostly think of radio as the thing that keeps me from hearing how bad my truck engine is running, but tonight has changed my mind. I’ve been listening to Whole Wheat Radio, a, um, well. An “Interactive Radio Theatre And Music Party Webcast” from a 12×12 plywood shack in Talkeetna, Alaska. Great indie music, domestic disputes, and blogs read live, all in a glorious stew, being remixed based on what people are saying in the chatroom at the time. Hearing Jim try to read my blog live was a nightmare (remind me to start writing something interesting, would you?), but in a snort-beer-through-your-nose sort of nightmarish way.

So, be sure you’ve got something that’ll sound good when read aloud, just in case, and swing by. You won’t regret it.

But you didn’t believe me, and so you missed Esther’s absolutely wonderful live, extemporaneous, vocal and dulcimer version of Dave Carter’s Elvis Presley. You don’t know what you missed, really you don’t.

Well. yeah, I missed it. I’ve listened to WWR for awhile and you are so right. It doesn’t get much more grass- (or is it wheat-)roots than that station, huh?
Good blog, I’m reading it and enjoying.
See you in the WWR chat I hope!

If Jim doesn’t put Shannon’s recording of it in the request list soon, I’m going to have to throw a tantrum. Or set up a competing station.

Eek. You are very right, having one’s blog read on Internet radio is a humbling experience.
