  7:42pm UncleMarty:

  7:43pm listener brett in Miami:

  7:43pm BH:

there is such a thing as a "chicken fried chicken" if you're into food items whose names might be redundant.
  7:43pm listener brett in Miami:

What the heck is chix fried steak?

  7:46pm sim:

I wonder if the break is because the DJ was getting choked up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm dale:

It's like a chuckwagon, but better.
  7:47pm listener brett in Miami:

  7:47pm sim:

I wish Linda Ronstadt had sisters and they all sang together so you'd get those family harmonies and pronunciations. But Trio works, too.

Arecibo Gold time!
  7:51pm listener brett in Miami:

I like the mystery
  7:52pm UncleMarty:

SF is some of the most literary fiction being produced by new young authors today. Kudos To Nicole for getting it out there. Just not sure that the 3 min bites does the writing service.
  7:53pm phillippe bastille:

lovely show, Nicole. love the format.
  7:53pm sim:

I've been to the Arecibo dish. You get to hike past planetary orbits as depicted by very small scale model planets.
  7:53pm sim:

The breaks have worked for this story.
  7:54pm listener brett in Miami:

That sounds sweet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm dale:

"Bears Discover Fire" by Terry Bisson. Southern Gothic. Premise is that bears have discovered fire, and are having campfires on highway medians.
