Upcoming events:

Wednesday, October 1st, 3pm - 6pm: John Strausbaugh PLUS Joe Frank - Work in Progress: "Stories for Nothing"
John Strausbaugh is the author of the widely acclaimed history of Greenwich Village, The Village: 400 Years of Beats and Bohemians, Radicals and Rogues. One of Kirkus Review's Best Books of 2013, it has just been reissued in paperback. On Thursday Oct 9, Strausbaugh will celebrate the paperwork edition with a talk and book signing at Cornelia Street Cafe in the heart of the Village, at 6pm. Strausbaugh will visit Irwin's show on Weds. Oct. 1, from 5-6pm, to share colorful chronicles about the Village's heralded history.

One-hour radio dramas by Joe Frank air alternate Wednesdays at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. October 1st we'll air an episode entitled "Stories for Nothing," from Joe's WORK IN PROGRESS series. A travel journal with a series of stories, including vignettes of a Third World hotel with one toilet and a long line of tourists suffering dysentery; a bored housewife who walks out on her family and hitches a ride with drugged hippies; the show trial of a penny-ante cult leader; and more.

Wednesday, October 15th, 3pm - 6pm: Joe Frank - Work in Progress: "Pretender"
One-hour radio dramas by Joe Frank air alternate Wednesdays at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. October 15th we'll air "Pretender," from Joe's WORK IN PROGRESS series. Joe chronicles a series of affairs he had with teachers at a prestigious New York private school. Each incident was a snapshot in frustration. Joe interweaves these personal fiascos with the quixotic saga of The Duke of Monmouth, who in 1685 attempted to overthrow his uncle, King James II, by leading a ragtag army of farmers and laborers in rebellion against the crown.
