THURSDAY November 24th at 10am: ALICES RESTAURANT MASSACREE

   

ALICE'S RESTAURANT REVISITED
The song is one of Arlo Guthrie's most prominent works, based on a true incident from his life that began on Thanksgiving Day 1965 with a citation for littering, and ended with the refusal of the U.S. Army to draft him because of his conviction for that crime. The ironic punch line of the story is that, in the words of Guthrie, "I'm sittin' here on the Group W bench 'cause you want to know if I'm moral enough to join the Army - burn women, kids, houses and villages - after bein' a litterbug." The final part of the song is an encouragement for the listeners to sing along, to resist the draft, and to end war.

The "song" is in fact a spoken monologue, presented by Shandon Loring today for your listening pleasure or just to groan at and be Thankful when it's over.

THURSDAY November 10th at 7pm: ON THE EDGE OF DREAM Women In Celtic Myth & Legend

         

THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN CELTIC HISTORY & STORIES
ON THE EDGE OF DREAM
Women In Celtic Myth & Legend

Weaving fragments of ancient epic texts and the richness of oral tradition, tonight's stories feature the powerful, wild, and wise women of Celtic mythology. The women of Celtic literature are here celebrated for their ingenuity, spirit, physical courage, and deep instinctual natures. 

Retold for the modern reader, in earthy, poetic language, these haunting, deeply moving tales exert a primal pull, awakening ancient memories buried deep within our collective unconscious.

Tonight:
THE ROMANCE OF MIS AND DUBH RUIS
He thought that if he could serenade her with his harp, he might be able to woo her. This, he hoped, would heal her wounded soul and cure her madness. Mis was, indeed, transfixed by the sound of Dubh Ruis's harp. She was also transfixed by his naked body as he played the sweet songs.

BLODEUWEDD - A woman made of flowers
A woman named Arianrhod places a ‘tynged’ on her son, Lleu Llaw Gyffes, that Lleu could never marry a human woman. But Lleu had an uncle named Gwydion, a legendary wizard, who creates for Lleu a wife made of flowers and named her Blodeuwedd. She was created from the flowers of the oak, the flowers of the broom, and the flowers of the meadowsweet. Blodeuwedd and Lleu get married, but trouble is soon on the horizon. Blodeuwedd has fallen in love with Gronw Pebr, a warrior and hunter from Penllyn.

THURSDAY November 3rd at 7pm: CURSED

    

"A Wish Is A Terrible Thing"
CURSED

Tonight is a selection of stories of the Cursed...

It's a prick of blood, the bite of an apple, the evil eye, a wedding ring or a pair of red shoes. Curses come in all shapes and sizes, and they can happen to anyone, not just those of us with unpopular stepparents... 

CASTLE CURSED
Poem by Jane Yolen
The Curse begins…

AS RED AS BLOOD, AS WHITE AS SNOW
by Christina Henry
Snow did not find him charming. When she looked into his dark, dark eyes she saw not the fizzy delight of charm but the flicker of a tongue through sharp teeth.

TROLL BRIDGE
by Neil Gaiman
When Jack was a young boy, his world was full of ghosts and ghouls, but one such monster--a ravenous and hideous troll--would haunt him long into manhood.

CASTLE WAKING
Poem by Jane Yolen
The Curse ends…
