Taylor Report: Belgium Co-operating With Rwanda Kidnapper Regime, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
Paul Rusesabagina, featured in the film "Hotel Rwanda," is now in custody in Kigali, Rwanda, having been kidnapped from the UAE. Rusesabagina is a Belgian citizen and a resident of the USA. Belgium gave him refugee status because of the danger he faced in Rwanda. The Prosecutor of Rwanda announced a group indictment against 16 people, including Rusesabagina. He also thanked Belgian authorities for giving permission to search Rusesabagina's residence in Belgium, the contents of which would be used against him. On October 1, 1990, the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) invaded Rwanda from and with the help of neighbouring Uganda. The leader of the RPF, Paul Kagame, was a Ugandan general who received training in the USA. Western governments welcome the RPF representatives to their countries, and ignored the protests of the legitimate government of President Habyarimana's Rwanda.

3 months 1 week ago
Masters of irony, parody, travesty, and sound effects, Firesign created radio dramas satirizing a nation unable to tell reality from the nonsense on TV--nonsense concocted by prostitute politicians and corporate greedheads. The perfect program for the 2020 election campaigns! Selections from The Firesign Theatre's 1970 classic, "Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers." (Continued...)

The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #209/A Bit Twisted: Jim Gaffigan, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
Sonic Café with a great old school Beastie Boys remix of Body Movin’, so ahh what’s goin’ on? I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 209. This time the Sonic Café brings you a bit twisted, featuring the stand up of Jim Gaffigan, a comedian who has the reputation of being a clean comic, never relying on profanity for a quick laugh, something we really appreciate. In fact in 2013 the Wall Street Journal crowned him the King of Clean comedy. Never thought of the Journal as a bastion of comedy… but there you go. Originally from Indiana, Jim credits fellow hoosier David Letterman for inspiring his pursuit of comedy. The Sonic Café brings you an anthology of Gaffigans material, including Hot Pockets, a bit that’s been called his Stairway to Heaven, plus cuts from many of his releases including 2019’s Quality Time. As you may have guessed, we feel Jim’s just twisted enough to fit in nicely with are cast of regulars here at the Sonic Café. We’ll wrap Gaffigan’s stand-up in a music mix skimmed from the last 52 years including Nina Simone, Garbage, Einstein’s Sister, The Cure, Tom Petty and more. All this time as the Sonic Café presents the twisted observations of Jim Gaffigan in another slightly twisted hour of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture from the Pacific northwest, we’re the Sonic Café.

Radio Curious: Dalton, Joan — Dogs in Juvenile Hall, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
I once had the good fortune of seeing “If Animals Could Talk,” a movie made by Jane Goodall. A segment was about The MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility in Woodburn, Oregon. The boys incarcerated there have committed serious criminal offenses; some of them are given an opportunity to train dogs, develop relationships with the dogs and in doing so learn responsibility, patience and respect for other living creatures. There is a zero recidivism rate among the juvenile inmates who spend time training dogs at MacLaren. Joan Dalton is the founder and executive director of Project Pooch, a non-profit corporation linked with MacLaren, where incarcerated youths train shelter dogs and find them homes. We visited by phone from her home near Portland, Oregon on February 15, 2010 and began our conversation when I asked her to tell us how Project Pooch came about and then about Project Pooch itself. The books that Joan Dalton recommends are “Children And Animals: Exploring The Roots Of Kindness And Cruelty,” by Frank R. Ascione and “Rescue Ink: How Ten Guys Saved Countless Dogs and Cats, Twelve Horses, Five Pigs, One Duck,and a Few Turtles,” by Rescue Ink and Denise Flaim.

Donald Drumpf Theatre: Donald Drumpf Theatre Volume 196 Super Spreader, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
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 five 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.
