Mouthing off: Fragments Radio

Well, barring another stint of All War All the Time on WVTF, our local NPR station from Roanoke (a condition that prevailed back in March, pre-empting my next to last radio bit... hey, it could happen again...) I'll be telling one of our family tales for all the world to hear on Friday, June 27. Of course, afterward, my son-- the star of the broadcast feature -- may decide now to not put me in the nursing home I've requested... the one that has internet hookups in all the rooms... after all. Sorry sonny. Too good a tale not to share.

If for some bizarre reason you want to listen 'live', tune in here via Real Audio on Friday morning, at 6:50 a.m. or 8:50 a.m. EDT. Both times, the regular 4-5 minute Civil War piece airs first, followed by the Friday feature 'essay'.

This has been a good way to meet people via the blog, since the station is kind enough to give me a byline that mentions Fragments. Hoping again this week for a few new readers and commenters and emailers... heck, I ate lunch with a Fragments-friend a few weeks back that 'met me' via the radio essay back in November. And they say weblogging is not about building 'real' community!

And oh! I should mention... the station has moved into their new digs. Very impressive, and gratifying to see what listener contributions have helped to do. They even have very good ergonomic chairs, so win my Physical Therapy NPR Listener Award!

I'm putting this on my calendar....I'm hoping I can stay awake!

You're right. There is the building of "real" community....if that's what you seek in your journey. I'm glad you're meeting great people!

Guess I'll have to download Real Player (I know I'm probably the only person on the planet that doesn't already have it) and remember to give it a listen!
