Radio Matters / Re: World On 3 - Jan 30_09

Ok, I\'ve tried several different ways to listen (Real Player, iPlayer, pasting a working link and pasting in the time) nothing is working for me either. I notified them that the link isn\'t working. We\'ll see if we get a response ::crossing fingers::

Maybe someone in the UK can try it and see if it\'s playing for them. Usually, when there\'s an international restriction, they have a message indicating we can\'t get the program.

Also, if Kronalias is about, he might look into it as well.

I\'m in the US Gentledove....let me see what I can find out. :)

R4 Extra (The Station Formerly Known As R7) Matter / Persuasion

This is a great production. Sir Walter Elliot is such a jerk. I love him to bits! Although, I don\'t think the man playing the part (Roger Huehn?) is as hate inspiring as Anthony Head\'s portrayal.

I\'m enjoying it anyway. :)

I don\'t know if anyone else has been listening to these, but I\'ve really been enjoying them. Through the personal letters to his mother, you get quite a bit of insight into his life. I especially loved his description of the birth of his daughter.

Anyway, if you\'re interested in ACD, this is a great program.

Arthur Conan Doyle: A Life in Letters, Episode 1

The link above is for the first episode (obviously). I won\'t put this in the calendar as, at the time of this post, it\'s already three episodes into the series.

I agree, Tru. I just listened to the rest of these and they pale in comparison.

Mine too. Got the vinyl, got the CD, got the MP3. lol

Radio Matters / Fry\'s English Delight

I highly recommend this one to anyone who loves the quirkiness of the English language.

Fry\'s English Delight, Metaphor

I listened to this program last night and learned a lot about Buddy, The Big Bopper and Richie Valens that I didn\'t know before.

I was amazed at how many musicians were influenced by Buddy Holly and his music. It also inspired me to learn more about The Big Bopper, and apparently he was the first to come up with \'music video\", and was in process of working on this idea when he passed, and Richie Valens was so young and at the very beginning of his career. I wonder what these three would have done had they lived.

Anyway, I highly recommend it.

LOL! Oh my, Tru! I\'ve finally listened to this one. It was priceless! Thanks for putting me on to it ;)

A copy of this \"appeared\" on my computer as well, but haven\'t listened to it yet either.

I\'m with you, I prefer to hear it all at one time. Some folks on the R7 boards were quite excited about it being on, but they didn\'t get into specifics, as I recall.

If I may add, PAW, we are also in process of cleaning up the Radio portions of the boards.

A lot of these conversations were taking place when we were trying to figure out how the moderator functions worked, and as you know, conversations can drift quickly to silliness without input from other posters. So, if you can bear with us a bit, these superfluous conversations in the radio area should be deleted, and it will be easier to follow a more Radio oriented line.

Starting new topics, in the more serious Radio area, is always helpful too. They have a better chance staying pristine if they\'re new. But the Subjects area is kind of designed to be a more loose atmosphere, something I think the R7 boards lacked. Hopefully, both can peacefully co-exist.

Anyway, glad your here, and post, post, post! :)

It\'s almost always that way for me too, Ivor. I\'ve read most of them more than once (although the Sittaford Mystery was either a new or forgotten one).

One thing about Agatha, I don\'t believe she ever cheated. The clues were all there by the time her detective solved the mystery. I hate it when mystery writers stick some out of the blue character or clue in at the last minute. It\'s dirty pool in my book.

I agree wholeheartedly! I\'m missing these already. I\'d settle for repeats of the others again, but you lot may be bored with them by now.

Yes! Hoping he\'s the exception to the rule! ::crossing fingers, toes, eyes....etc...)
