Going On The Account: Pulling Into Port

And sometimes, the ship you’re looking for comes in to where you are…

Over the weekend, I referred someone to a post where I linked to my first appearance on Hour of the Wolf.  I was proud of that stand, especially as it was the first time I shared with a wide audience my reading of “Act Naturally,” a story that with the 50th anniversary of both DOCTOR WHO and Beatlemania upon us seemed especially resonant these days.

To my embarrassment, however, WBAI purged the archives of the piece.  Which is their right, especially in these days where bandwidth is so precious and the ability to provide online traffic becoming as valuable as an air pocket in a sinking boat, so I get that.

Well, I did get that, after a string of blue curses, apologies to the person I was trying to refer the piece to, and a few jiggers of rum to try and treat my depression.  Rum’s good for a lot of things, but it tends to lack in the treating of depression induced by first world problems…

Still, better I was collected come the end of the weekend, when I wrote Jim Freund, host of Hour of the Wolf to see what consolation he could offer.  Least he could do, I figured, was explain the station’s policy and keep me from feeling like this was personal.

Yeah, I’m a bit of a prima dona that way…

And to my surprise, he forwarded me the download of the show, making it resident right here for all time*:

My thanks to Jim for forwarding the file and allowing me to host it here.

Going On The Account: Had A Say About A Few Things

This morning, I had the pleasure of being on Hour of the Wolf again, discussing Doctor Who with Carol Pinchefsky and Keith DeCandido in a forum hosted by Jim Freund.

It was a pleasure being with a group of very talented writers, who all had insightful things to offer regarding this program, which is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this Saturday.

As for me, well, every group needs cheep comedy relief…

Part 1 can be heard here

Going On The Account: Oh What A Beautiful Morning…

I mentioned late Monday here about the radio appearance on “Hour of the Wolf” on WBAI

…I think I did; I’m going on fumes at this point, gimme a sec-

…oh yeah, I did…

Well,  I enjoyed the chance to do this.  I have to thank Jim Freund for having me on in the very early part of this morning, from three to six bells on the overnight watch, hence the fumes.  I had a chance to talk a little about my background, and gave “Act Naturally” a reading to a large audience.

They say we are our own worst critic; they also warn us that pride hath a fall.

All said, though, I think it went pretty well.

Of course, you don’t have to just take my word for it; you can hear for yourself at your leisure right now…

[EDIT:  Yes, the link above is dead; only just found this out very recently.  However, see my blog post from February 10th of 2014]

As for me, if any wolves show up at this hour, have them leave a number and I’ll get back to them when I’m more coherent slumble quabaki dru…
