SUNDAY, June 13th at 1:30pm: TEATIME with Candy Matson- YUkon 2-8209

Candy Matson  YUkon 2-8209 is a radio program on NBC West Coast that aired from June
29, 1949, to May 20, 1951. It centered on Candy Matson, a female private investigator with a wry sense of humor and a penthouse on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. The program was notable for having a striking female character "without a trace of squeamishness" as well as a veiled gay character in Candy's best friend Rembrandt Watson.

In addition to the show being set in San Francisco, it was produced at San Francisco Radio City.

The aftermath of a 1950 episode illustrated the program's popularity. A newspaper story related: "It seems that during the closing moments of the last Monday's sequence, Candy is in an aircraft repeating the 'Twenty-third Psalm' as the plane crashes into a lake. At that point the show ends. And at that point the switchboard at Radio City started lighting up like a Christmas tree. More than 800 calls were received shortly after the program signed off. All of them wondering what happened to their heroine."

TODAY: "Jack Frost" in the Fireside room (Downstairs) with Corwyn, Gloriana, Elrik, Kayden, & Cale, live.

FRIDAY, June 11th at 2:30pm: UNSEEN ACADEMICALS Continues

(session will be 90 minutes)

Football in Ankh-Morpork is not as we might know it. Rather than being comprised of rules and played within a recognisable ground, it is far more akin to the somewhat violent mob football of medieval Europe.

Not that this is a concern for the elderly mostly indolent and (some might be tempted to think) somewhat inept old wizards making up the faculty staff at the city’s school of wizardry, the Unseen University. Until, that is, their very handsome annual endowment becomes subject to their playing the game themselves.

Thus, Archchancellor Mustrum Ridcully sets out a two-pronged strategy: to ensure the city’s version of football is restructured with proper (and favourable?) rules, and to put team preparations at the university in the hands of the talented candle dribbler, Mr. Nutt and his assistant, Trevor Likely, the son of the city’s most famous (if deceased – did I mention the game can be violent?) player, who are in turn supported by Glenda Sugarbean, who runs the university’s night kitchen and her assistant Juliet Stollop.

Except Mr. Nutt soon discovers he has problems of his own to deal with, and Trevor has promised his Mum he’ll never get involved in the game.  Meanwhile, Glenda has the daily responsibility of baking the Discworld’s best pies, and Juliet is about to find herself whisked towards the heights of fame as a fashion model, thus potentially leaving the team a little short on practical advice…

Join Caledonia Skytower as she presents the 37th novel in the Discworld series, and possibly one of its greatest satirical undetakings encompassing football, academia, traditions, the fashion industry, politics, love, fandom, and which mixes in more serious themes of identity, crab mentality and self-worth.

Presented in honor of the late VT Torvalar.

THURSDAY, June 10th at 7PM: LITTLE FUZZY Continues

LITTLE FUZZY continues in The Glen

Protagonist Jack Holloway lives a solitary life mining valuable "sunstones" in the wilderness of the planet Zarathustra, managed by Victor Grego's Chartered Zarathustra Company, which built colonial outposts there and now reaps the benefits of the planet's resources. One day, Holloway meets a small golden-furred humanoid whom he names "Little Fuzzy", who soon introduces Holloway to his family. Holloway cares for the Fuzzies and spreads word of their apparently intelligent behavior.

WEDNESDAY, June 9th at 7PM: SKINK - No Surrender! Continues

 


Blinding storms, poisonous snakes, crazed pigs and giant gators. Add in a missing young girl, her improbably brave cousin, and a ragged wandering vigilante named Skink, and Carl Hiaasen sets the stage for a Florida misadventure in "Skink -- No Surrender." This young adult novel brings back Hiaasen's iconic character Skink, from his earlier book, "Stormy Weather." All the nuts do roll down to Florida, so join us on the beach for some fun in the sun. But watch out fer the gators.

Kayden continues Carl Hiaasen's adventure, live.

TUESDAY, June 8th at 7pm: WHAT ABIGAIL DID THAT SUMMER Continues

 It is the summer of 2013 and Abigail Kamara has been left to her own devices. This might, by those who know her, be considered a mistake.

While her cousin, police constable and apprentice wizard Peter Grant, is off in the sticks chasing unicorns Abigail is chasing her own mystery: teenagers around Hampstead Heath have been going missing but before the police can get fully engaged the teens return home – unharmed but vague about where they’ve been.

Aided only by her new friend Simon, her knowledge that magic is real and a posse of talking foxes that think they’re spies, Abigail must venture into the wilds of Hampstead to discover who is luring the teenagers and more importantly – why?

Join Corwyn Allen as he reads Ben Aaronovitch’s latest novel.

SUNDAY, June 6th @1:30pm: TEATIME with L. Frank Baum Concludes

TEATIME with L. Frank Baum concludes today on Point Loring Beach (Nowhereville) with Corwyn Allen, Rik Merlin, Kayden Connell, Gloriana Maertens, and Caledonia Skytower, live on stream.

TODAY: adventures from Baum's underwater fantasy The Sea Fairies.

Mayre Griffiths, nicknamed Trot, is a little girl who lives on the coast of southern California. Her father is the captain of a sailing schooner, and her constant companion is Cap'n Bill Weedles, a retired sailor with a wooden leg. (Cap'n Bill had been Trot's father's skipper, and Charlie Griffiths had been his mate, before the accident that took the older man's leg.) Trot and Cap'n Bill spend many of their days roaming the beaches near home, or rowing and sailing along the coast. One day, Trot wishes that she could see a mermaid; her wish is overheard, and granted the next day. The mermaids explain to Trot, and the distressed Cap'n Bill, that they are benevolent fairies; when they offer Trot a chance to pay a visit to their land in mermaid form, Trot is enthusiastic, and Bill is too loyal to let her go off without him.

So begins their sojourn among the sea fairies.

SUNDAY, May 30th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME with L. Frank Baum Continues

 

TEATIME with L. Frank Baum continues in the Fireside room with Corwyn Allen, Rik Merlin, Kayden Connell, Gloriana Maertens, and Caledonia Skytower, live on stream.

TODAY: from AMERICAN FAIRY TALES ~ The Capture of Father Time, The Dummy That Lived, The King of the Polar Bears, and the Introduction from SEA FAIRIES (which we'll read more from in our final session next week)

Lyman Frank Baum (May 15th, 1856 – May 6th, 1919) was an American author best known for his children’s books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels (14 novels in all). His prolific output included 55 novels, 83 short stories,  over 200 poems and at least 42 scripts.

Baum sought to create a uniquely American mythology separate from any European roots. In typically Yankee fashion, he accomplished this by creating a melting pot of story archetypes, mixed and brewed into a somewhat satirical, sometimes glib, very tongue-in-cheek concoction that still manages a certain quaintness.

@ 7PM - OLD PETER'S RUSSIAN TALES

Journalist Arthur Ransome – who would later gain fame for Swallows and Amazons, – traveled between England and Russia either side of the 1917 revolution. His initial reason for doing so was to escape his marriage. However, he became fascinated by the Russian language and life, particularly old folk tales.

In 1912 he came across a collection of translations of tales into English, but found the language and style exceptionally poor. However, he was captivated by the richness of the material, noting it differed from both Scandinavia, Brittany, Wales and Scotland.

So in 1914, he set about collecting tales and translating them for himself whilst in Russia, with a volume of stories published under the title Old Peter’s Russian Tales in 1916, when he was staying in Vergezha, on the River Volkhov.

Tonight, Willow Moonfire brings these tales to Seanchai Library. live.
