What should I listen to?

I spend most of my work day listening to interview and essay type radio shows on the internet. My favorite, of course, is This American Life. I also love Fresh Air . I've checked out Radio 4 a little, and sometimes I listen to Democracy Now and even more rarely Air America. Keeping in mind what I already like, what else would you recommend I listen to?

Unexpected Tunnel Static

I use an FM transmitter for my MP3 player. When I went through a tunnel in Pittsburgh this past weekend, I thought that the reception would have come in crystal clear since most of the radio interference would be missing. Instead it fuzzed out the same way a radio station in a tunnel does. Why?

Not the History of Rock n Roll!

Anyone ever hear a hilarious radio special on the CBC called "Not the History of Rock and Roll"? There were two of these produced. I've heard Part 2, it's got really funny impersonations and faux interviews of David Byrne, Michael Jackson, James Brown and others. I'm trying to locate the first part. Anyone have an idea of where to find it?

Hello Cats & Kittens...

I'm going to be out of work in two months (happily), and one thing I'm thinking of exploring is radio, both for the sheer fun of it and maybe as a career choice since when I was a kid I desperately wanted to be Johnny Fever. I have a voice for it, I'm told, and the music knowledge, and the patter. I realize that I'll have to start out doing it for free at a college station or something, but that's cool. So, how does one go about doing this? Be as detailed as possible. [more inside]

I can hear you, just barely hear you

I used to have one of those old VCRs where you had to tune each channel in by hand. It had a set of tiny little dials that let you scan the entire TV spectrum (and beyond?). When the cable wire was plugged in, I could tune in some bizzare things in the audio: rhythmic clicking, low pulses, and most interestingly, other people's phone calls. I assume I was picking up cordless phones, but how did this work? Did the cable system act as a giant antenna all over town? Has this phenomenon ever been documented anywhere?

payphone interviews

On phoneswarm.org someone mentions that "...several years ago, one of CBC's main news programs became quite adept at calling pay phones in the midst of the world's current trouble spots and interviewing whoever picked up. Don't know where they managed to get the numbers, but it was unique, raw and on the spot journalism." Does anyone know what program this was, or where I could obtain transcripts or recordings of this?
