Tune in to this week's Writers' Voices for a thought-provoking conversation with Michael Cuddehe. Michael is a 30-year veteran analyst, trader and fund manager who has seen many fluctuations in the global financial markets over the years. With the election of George W. Bush, Michael noticed the economic shift he saw happening and felt that it would lead to disaster.
His book "Chronicle of Catastrophe: A Contemporaneous History of the Bush Years" presents Michael's real-time reflections of the markets, political issues, economy and global developments during the George W. Bush administration in order to put America's current economic troubles in context.
I've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that this week's show truly lives up to its indie inspired theme, unearthing obscure gems from all corners of the globe, with particular emphasis pacific coast way. The bad news is that this week's show truly lives up to its indie roots with obscure gems, most of which you won't be able to find short of employing a fine-toothed comb. All the more reason to tune in I say, ephemeral nature of the experience and all that... The line-up includes a veritable feast of newcomers; Finland's Paperfangs, Loon Choir, The Smiles, The Shape of The Earth, Sun Airway, Pepper Rabbit and more... Saturday at 6pm Central and brought back Thursday at 9am. Bliss-pop for one and all.
for the living,

Friday, we're honored to welcome back returning co-host Burt Chojnowski. Randy West, Executive/Artistic Director of WOB will be our guest, because you know what? He's not only an exquisite talent of live theatre, but also loves the movies.
We had planned to talk about Clint Eastwood's new film Hereafter, but projector problems forced Randy into seeing RED instead. There are some well known actors in RED (Retired Extremely Dangerous), including Helen Mirren, and we'll hear from Randy about it.
Hereafter was our Filmosophical film of the week last Friday, before we even saw it. Burt and I will opine on that pick, after watching it this week. The critics are divided on Hereafter almost right down the middle. [Click on read more below to continue.]
Saturday morning we'll feature two recent releases from Lake Front recording artists Paul Adams and David Hoffman. Hear music from "Heavens; Further Explorations For The Dreaming Flute" by Paul Adams and "Calmness Of Spirit" by David Hoffman.

Almost five years ago, three legendary DJ's etched their names into history by challenging the modern patterns of youth radio. Sword and shield in hand, they battled audio advertisements, conquered every unlistenable radio cliche, and laid waste to corporate trash that played songs strictly based on popularity, not quality.
After the sudden departure of one of these DJ's, Ms. Terinel Font, the legendary trio became a mythical duo, and the goal became even more pinpointed towards discovering the best-of-the-best, whether it be an new, under-the-radar group, or through diving deep into the vault of past legends. This duo toiled, week after week, until Thursday evenings became synonymous with the newly crafted 'Cameron and Patrick...Show'. (click 'read more'!)
