This American Life was Bad This Week

I know there are a lot of This American Life fans here. But, have you ever listened and thought "Wow, this is awful." What are your least favorite TAL stories? I am working on putting together a class about good and bad "radical" radio and want some listener opinion besides my own.

How do I learn to speak well in radio interviews?

I'm generally a fairly confident guy. I write well. I can carry on an intelligent conversation. I'm a salesman by training. I acted on stage in high school. In college I could deliver (and enjoy) speeches of all sorts. I can even hold my own when interviewed for the newspaper or for a podcast. But when it comes to speaking on live radio, I'm a nervous wreck. What can I do to improve? [more inside]

MP3 Files to Old School AM Radio?

I'd like to "broadcast" my MP3 based collection of classic radio drama and spoken word recordings so that I can listen to them on a 1930's era AM radio. There are all sorts of little USB to FM transmitters, but I can't find a convenient (as in, no soldering required) solution for AM. Any suggestions? [more inside]

XM Radio and iPod, shall they be as one?

I just got a Pioneer Inno XM2Go Satellite Radio with MP3. Woohoo! But I also have a video iPod. Seems I should be able to put all my MP3s on the Inno. I have about 1000 songs and all are on iTunes. But XM likes to work with Napster. How can I manage this? Can I transfer all the iTunes MP3s to my Inno? Will I have to use Napster from now on to download songs?

I'm looking for suggestions for instrumental music to be used in the background of a radio piece.

I am working on a documentary radio piece and I'm looking for some instrumental music to use in the background. I've stumbled across some great instrumental stuff, but most of it is incredibly sappy. The problem with this is that my story is not. I'm looking for relatively upbeat music, not music to break up to. Can anyone suggest some interesting instrumental artists or collections? Maybe a movie soundtrack?

What caused electromagnetic weirdness in my house this morning?

This morning we go to leave for work (I didn't ride because it was hailing snow, dig?) and the garage door remote didn't work.

Who performed this cover of Cher's (ridiculous but awesome) "Belive?"

Remember Cher's "Believe" from a few years ago ("Do you believe in life after love?") I heard an ironic, great version of it on the radio yesterday. I couldn't find it in the station playlists. It has a male vocalist and uses the same vocodor distortion effect on the chorus as the Cher version. Who is it? (PS, it isn't The Luxury Liners.)

American Popular culture from the early 20th century?

I'm looking for sites related to American popular culture from the early 20th century: books, films, radio, magazines, music, dance, comic strips, celebrities — you name it. I'm particularly interested on the period between the wars, but open to great stuff from before (and during) World War I, as well. Little Nemo, Keystone Kops, the Lindy Hop, Enrico Caruso, Fatty Arbuckle, Al Jolson, Clara Bow, Flash Gordon, Alice blue, Teddy bears, etc. These are all the sorts of things I'm after, especially as they're represented on the web. Bonus points for sites with RSS feeds. [more inside]

sudden tempo change in "willow weep for me"

I once heard a radio program (probably on NPR or the BBC) about the song "Willow Weep for Me." They claimed it was an extraordinary song for two reasons: it was written by a woman (rare in 1932) and there was striking tempo change in the middle of the song. However, in most recordings, the musicians skip the tempo change. But on the show I listened to, they played a rare recoding that featured the change. I want that recording. [more inside]

TAL without the annoying bits. And possibly in Spanish.

Storytelling, deep news stories, themed narratives: Podcasts in this vein wanted. Think "This American Life" but not always as funny or quirky, or the longer news stories on NPR that use the lens of a smaller story-within-a-story. Artsy takes on news also welcome. In addition, which Latino podcasts (in the same general format) have caught your ear? [more inside]
