The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #184/For Coffee Lovers Everywhere, Segment 1

1 month ago
Sonic Café, sounds like Led Zeppelin but it’s actually music from Greta Van Fleet. So hey welcome, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 184. This time the Sonic Café checks in with coffee lovers everywhere to see just how fully caffeinated we all are. Turns out US coffee drinkers down 3.1 cups a day, or 8 pounds each annually. Sounds like a lot, and it is. But we only rank number 8 in the world. So who’s the most caffeinated country? Well that honor goes to Finland; the Fins it turns out consume 22 pounds each per year. So guess we’ll need to step it up a bit if we want to be number one. We’ve blended all this coffee talk into a freshly roasted music mix brewed up from 51 years. Listen for Little Axe, Fiona Apple, XTC, Victor Wainwright and the Wild Roots, Temple and more. Then later, Jack Nicholson brings us the story of Kopi Luwak the world’s most exotic coffee, we’ll also join comedian Jamie Lissow on a tour of his swank New York City crib… and finally a fully caffeinated Sonic Café welcome to the Burned Bean Coffee Shop, our newest sponsor. All that and more just ahead, from the little café on the coast that brews up a weekly dose of intelligent, eclectic radio… along with a bottomless cup of coffee, we’re the Sonic Café.

An original radio theatre show each week, with most sounds culled from the previous week, about a fictional, theatrical presidency. Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines. The definition of "radio theatre" is stretched here, with an updated Dickie Goodman and/or Richard Foreman-meets-mashup style sometimes, and a more straightforward take other weeks. Currently airing on 30 or 40 stations around the world, the network has ordered another 11 months of episodes. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact info@wgxc.org.

WHFM: Herman's Radio & Record Room #2, Segment 1

1 month ago
My father was a radio technician, country & western cowboy singer, and guitar player. He performed in the late 1930’s before he enlisted in World War II as a radio technician. This show is my homage to him. My father was a radio engineer and electrician; he loved the other side of radio as well – the listening side – it kept him company during many lonesome nights in the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s & 60's. From my imagination to your ears – it’s WHFM – vintage music & radio shows from mid century America. This is music he would have enjoyed.

Sea Change Radio: Dave Brown: How We Shop For News, Segment 1

Media critics have pointed out that news stations these days tend to have a political bent - gone are the days of “objective" journalism. At the same time, it must be acknowledged that MSNBC and Fox News differ greatly in their treatment of what is factual. This week’s guest on Sea Change Radio thinks it's all garbage. We are talking with Dave Brown, an attorney, podcast host and freelance sports columnist. We debate the merits of cable TV news, look at the impact it makes during a global health crisis, and speculate about what, if anything, can be done to remediate the bloviation.

Sunday Morning with Jim Mora: No evidence that Covid-19 is causing huge loss of life, Segment 1

1 month 1 week ago
Professor Michael Levitt, a Nobel laureate and Stanford biophysicist, says there is no clear evidence that Covid-19 is causing massive loss of life, despite evidence to the contrary in places like Europe and New York City. In fact, Levitt, who is currently stuck in Israel, says it has not been a particularly bad year for flu deaths. And the people who are dying from coronavirus are those who are at risk of death anyway. Professor Levitt believes we're been 'primed for Covid-19 panic.'

The Wonder of Boys & A Fine Young Man Boys do not have an easy time growing up and maturing in our complex world these days.

Latin Waves : interviews Jorge Marti COVID19, Segment 1

1 month 1 week ago
The current coronavirus pandemic is more than a medical crisis, it is also a political and ideological crisis. It is a crisis deeply rooted in years of neglect by neoliberal governments that denied the importance of public health and the public good while defunding the institutions and decades of austerity. Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Jorge Marti about government’s response to the coronavirus in Western countries, the impact of decades of austerity and neoliberalism policies on health institutions. This pandemic is a call for an end to all sanctions, causing needless death.
