THURSDAY July 2nd at 7pm: Kolchak: THE NIGHT STALKER - Barrens

THE NIGHT STALKER
Barrens
"Don't take MY word for it"
Chicago wire service reporter, Carl Kolchak, investigates mysterious crimes with unlikely causes, particularly those that law enforcement authorities won't follow up. These often involve the supernatural or science fiction, including fantastic creatures. 

This one’s happened to us all.
You’re driving late at night on some long distance trip. Maybe you’re alone. Maybe the wife and kids are asleep in the other seats. You’ve driven a couple hours past where you should have turned into that motel. Your back’s sore and eyes are itching from sitting and staring–from watching the lines on the road roll under your hood. 

There.

What was that?

Something in your peripheral. Something on the shoulder of the road. There, just at the limit of your headlight beam. Just for a flash of a second. Something moving. Running. Matching speed with you for just a fraction of a fraction of a second. Were those eyes glowing in your brights? Was that a glimpse of spiky fur? And feet paddling like a blur and kicking up dust by your spinning tires? Did you see a flash of teeth? Then it’s gone.

. . . with an hour of 100% live and unplugged acoustic music and spoken word.  Russell will be presenting original and traditional songs, instrumental pieces and covers, together with some selected poems. Folk Baroque and Beyond.

~ 7pm: Thornton Wilder's THE BRIDGE OF SAN LUIS REY Concludes 
Willow Moonfire presents Thorton Wilder’s second, and 1928 Pulitzer Prize winning novel. Influenced in part by Wilder’s own conversations with his deeply religious father, and inspired by Prosper Mérimée’s one-act act play, Le Carrosse du Saint-Sacrement, Thorton described the novel as a means to pose the question, “Is there a direction and meaning in lives beyond the individual’s own will?”

The bridge of the novel’s title and opening is a fictional Inca rope bridge, and its collapse is witnessed by a Franciscan friar, himself about to cross over it. A deeply pious man, Brother Juniper finds his faith challenged by the tragedy, and as a result embarks upon a “mission” to prove that it was divine will rather than chance that led to the deaths of those who fell with the bridge.

SUNDAY, June 28th at 1:30pm slt: TEA TIME with Miss Marple

"The Murder at the Vicarage" continues, 
with Episode 2!


A man has been murdered right in the Vicarage study. But who could possibly want to kill Colonel Protheroe?  Turns out there's more suspects than you can count on one hand. This week: the suspects begin to emerge. There's not just one confession, but two!

"‘Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,’ declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, ‘would be doing the world at large a favour!’ It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later – when the colonel was found shot dead in the clergyman’s study. But as Miss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe."

THURSDAY June 25th at 7pm: COLUMBO - A Killer's Tale

COLUMBO
A Killer's Tale
"Oh, uh.. just one more thing"
Columbo is a shrewd but inelegant blue-collar homicide detective whose trademarks include his rumpled beige raincoat, unassuming demeanor, frequent cigar smoking, an old Peugeot 403, an unseen wife (whom he mentions regularly), and the catchphrase "Just one more thing". His suspects are often affluent members of high society who try to carefully cover their tracks. Initially dismissive of Columbo's circumstantial speech and apparent ineptitude, they become increasingly unsettled as his pestering behavior leads him to tease out incriminating evidence. His relentless approach often leads to self-incrimination or an outright confession by the suspect.

SUNDAY, June 14th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME with Miss Marple ~ "The Murder at The Vicarage" Begins

TEA TIME presents a brand new six week series beginning today, Sunday, June 14th at 1:30 pm slt; the final episode on Sunday, July 19th


                     Dame Agatha Christie's "The Murder At The Vicarage" 

"‘Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,’ declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, ‘would be doing the world at large a favour!’ It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later – when the colonel was found shot dead in the clergyman’s study. But as Miss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe."   
~ from agathachristie.com

Aoife Lorefield, Da5id Abbot, Caledonia Skytower, Corwyn Allen, Gloriana Maertens, Kayden Oconnell, Willow Moonfire, live.

The Murder at the Vicarage is the first novel to feature the character of Miss Marple and her village of St Mary Mead. This first look at St Mary Mead led a reviewer in 1990 to ask why these are called cosy mysteries: "Our first glimpse of St Mary Mead, a hotbed of burglary, impersonation, adultery and ultimately murder. What is it precisely that people find so cosy about such stories?"
