Tuesday Podcast 7/31/12
You know, if there’s one small downside to working in public radio, it’s dealing with all the starstruck fans. “Your job is so glamorous and fascinating!” they say. “Tell us how you do it, and don’t spare any details, because nothing’s as interesting as you and people like you!” It’s nice to hear, but when you hear it all day, every day, it gets old. That’s why we love Rob Rosenthal’s How Sound. It gives the norms a look behind the scenes at the radio production game, which takes some of the pressure off us. As luck would have it, we’ve got a new edition of How Sound on today’s big ‘cast. And this one’s extra nice, because it gives you an inside look at a really interesting and unusual piece called “Chorus of Refuge.”
Then it’s the first installment of a new show called Love the French Way, which isn’t nearly as filthy as you might be hoping. It’s actually pretty wholesome and great; our old buddy Charles Spira of Bonjour Chanson fame produces this little nugget which focuses on a different French love song each time out. For episode one, Charles will examine “Hotel of the Caravelles.”
We’ll end the podcast with a little something called Tales From the Secret Gardens of Oxton, which (we think) marks the O’Dark debut of producer Phillip David Ellwand. What’s it all about? That’s a secret, fool! But tune in and find out.
