I love the song "Time Passages" by Al Stewart from the same-titled album. I am one of the few that actually like the radio edit better. I cannot find it anywhere available to listen to or download though know it was on 1978 AM Gold by Time-Life which I cannot afford (rare CD). I tried getting that cd from interlibrary loan to no avail. Does anybody know where else it might be lurking?

I subscribe to plenty of podcasts, but sometimes have a hankering for live radio. So I'm looking for some entertaining talk radio to listen to while I fall asleep. Ideally I'd like to find some local (as in not nationally syndicated; specific location isn't important) radio stations that stream call-in talk shows around midnight Eastern time. I realize talk shows skew to the right politically, and I'm OK with thoughtful shows with a conservative bias, but not OK with ultra-right-wing screamers (e.g., Rush Limbaugh and clones). And I'm not too interested in shows that focus solely on politics. [more inside]
Help me identify a children's fantasy story! It was a radio drama (possibly based on a book, possibly airing on the BBC) that I listened to when I was young. Details inside... [more inside]
I'm already on the radio (public radio--and yes, I do sound like that)--now I'd like to get into doing some voiceover work. I live in a remote area, so getting an agent and going to auditions isn't likely to work for me. I'd just like to do some work on the side, and technologically I'm set up. So what I'm wondering is, has anyone used online marketplaces like voice123 or voices.com? Is one better/worse than the other? Are they worth the (small but not non-existent) investment to be a "premium" member? [more inside]

I need to record two people at the same time. I can't follow them around with a boom mic and I don't want them to be attached at the hip with a splitter to one recorder plus 2 lapel mics. How do I record two people, walking around, talking to each other? Do I need two recorders? AND if I have two recorders, how much of a pain will it be to edit the material/will it sound weird? How is this normally done? It is for the radio. [more inside]
I'm lookingAH... for a comedy bitAH... where every wordAh... ended with an exagerrated 'AH' soundAH.
A few months ago while listening to XM Radio's Raw Dog Comedy channel, I heard an oddly funny monologue that I'm trying to locate. I can't remember what the subject was, but it was a studio recording of a lone male voice, and every sentence ended with a dragged-out "ah" sound. For instance, he might say "Four score and seven years agoAH! Our fathers brought forthAH..." and on and on. I know this isn't much to go on but I'm hoping someone will recognize the very unique sound of this piece and will point me to it.
I like eclectic adult alternative/contemporary radio such as The World Cafe. I am using DAR.fm to record audio streams, but The World Cafe does not unfortunately provide song titles in its streams, making it hard to organize shows using DAR. Does anyone have suggestions of other, similar radio programs, preferably ones where the audio stream provides song information?
