Donald Drumpf Theatre: Donald Drumpf Theatre Vol. 129 Drain The Swamp, Segment 1

1 week 5 days 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 15 episodes, but there are threats of cancellation. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact info@wgxc.org.

The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #142/Twilight Zone Classic: The FEVER, Segment 1

1 week 5 days ago
Sonic Café. Welcome to episode 142, I’m your host Scott Clark. You know everything about life is a gamble. With each new day yet another opportunity to take a chance, to maybe win big, or lose it all. This time the Sonic Café explores what can happen when you take a chance, and everything goes sideways, in another Twilight Zone Classic. We present The Fevor, which debuted in1960. It’s the story of Franklin and Flora Gibbs, who’ve won a trip to Las Vegas. Now Franklin isn’t at all happy in Vegas because he detests gambling, and even more, all those degenerates who gamble. But since this is the Twilight Zone, just by chance our high-minded Franklin gets coerced into putting just one dollar into a slot machine, and then pulling the handle of that one armed bandit, just once. After that, well Franklin gets the fever, and you know what they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. We’ve wrapped this story of compulsive behavior in a music mix that explores the idea of chance in a number of ways. Listen for Morphine, Joni Mitchell, Sarah Vaughan, Modest Mouse, Dan Fogelberg, Steve Winwood and of course more. All this time, from that little café on the coast that compulsively brings you a weekly dose of headphone friendly, intelligent, eclectic programming that’s fun, we’re the Sonic Café.

Taylor Report: America Has an Exceptional History of Wars and Fake News, Segment 1

1 week 6 days ago
The parameters of political discourse in the US, rigidly enforced, do not allow reality much space. Allegedly, it is a well-meaning empire that makes "mistakes" that are all traced to an innocent nature. Haiphong makes short work of this official narrative, and points to evidence that most Americans, after endless wars and reduced opportunities, are not buying the old stories. Maybe the jig is up.

TUC Radio: Jane Anne Morris - Democracy Theme Park, Segment 2

2 weeks ago
Jane Anne Morris was one of the primary researchers, writers and workshop leaders in POCLAD the Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy. They came together in the early 1990's to try to better understand why all of our activism against corporations that are causing harm to people and nature was so ineffective.   The website Democracy Theme Park dot org is Jane Anne Morris’ precious gift to us. She died on May 28, 2019 in Madison, Wisconsin. And this program is a tribute to her. Here is the way she wanted us to enter her site. She wrote: “I first brought up the idea of the Democracy Theme Park — the place where we play at pulling the levers of democracy, only to discover they aren’t connected to anything — at a conference in Texas in 1996 … Corporate executives have continued writing laws and buying television stations. They’re making policy, while we’re standing in line for rides at the Democracy Theme Park. But we don’t have to stay here. We too can develop provocative and nuanced strategies for returning democracy to what it was supposed to be all about; government for the people, by the people. So hang on to your hats and sharpen your pencils… we’re going over the wall! But first, take a step back to 1996. What I said then is still (alas) deeply relevant.” Jane Anne Morris was recorded by C-SPAN in 1996 in Texas at the founding convention of the Alliance for Democracy. This is the first of several programs honoring her. Please contact me, Maria Gilardin, via if you have broadcast quality audio of Jane Anne Morris that I may use.

Radio Curious: Dr. Donald Perry – A Ride Through a Rain Forest in Costa Rica, Segment 1

2 weeks ago
Life Above the Jungle Floor In the middle of the Costa Rican rain forest, about an hour west of San Jose, Costa Rica, on the east side of the continental divide, you can find the Rain Forest Aerial Tram located on a private rain forest reserve. It’s a series of small, open-air cars that hold about five people each held together by a three kilometers long cable. The tramcars carry visitors through, above and below this portion of the Central American rainforest canopy. The Rain Forest Aerial Tram was the brainchild of Dr. Donald Perry, a biologist trained at the University of California at Los Angeles, who, beginning in 1970, has specialized in the study of the flora and fauna of the Central American Rainforest. In April of 1995, I visited the Rain Forest Aerial Tram with Dr. Perry. Dr. Donald Perry recommends “Life Above the Jungle Floor,” by Dr. David Perry. Originally Broadcast: April 1, 1995

The Alembic Files: The Ominous Parallels - 11, Segment 1

2 weeks ago
The global depression pushes Germany over the edge. Economic catastrophe was, in effect, the last link in a long chain of ideas and events and a catalyst which gave Hitler a real opportunity for the final cashing in. The catalyst worked because the nation was already ripe for Hitler’s kind of cashing in. If a man long-addicted to a toxic drug suffers sudden convulsions and then dies from, then one might validly say that the convulsions were the cause of the death so long as one remembers the cause of the cause. The same is true about a country addicted to a toxic ideology. After years of preaching contradictions and evading principles with an anti-ideological shrug, these—the civilized--men were astonished to see the nation conclude that man cannot live by principles, that reason is no guide to action, and that anything goes. These men were astonished to see hostile gangs take to the streets and demand one another’s sacrifice. These men were astonished to find that irrational feeling is no counter to wild emotionalism. After years of spreading or condoning or subsidizing the cult and culture of nihilism, these men were astonished to find they had nothing more to say and that there was no one left to listen. The moderates were helpless. The authorities were helpless. The killers were taking over.
