Re:sound #143 The Centenarians Show (rebroadcast)

Stories about people who lived to be 100, from the NPR seriesOne Hundred Years of Stories (originally aired in 2000) by producer Neena Ellis. Hen and Bill Boardman At an age when most people are simplifying their lives and settling into old age, Helen Boardman was opening a new chapter - traveling to Europe, writing her memoirs, and falling in love (at age 90) with a younger man. Ruth Ellis Having no children, and having been shunned by her family for being gay, Ruth Ellis found herself alone in old age. That is, until a brand-new community embraced her, and helped her make the most out of the final years of her life. Abraham Goldstein Retirement was never in the cards for Abe Goldstein, who taught law at Baruch College in New York well into his 100s. Roy Larkin Stamper Cattle rancher, coal miner and preacher are just a few of the vocations R.L. Stamper pursued over the course of his 100 years. In the last years of his life, R.L. believed the Rapture was imminent and he wanted just ...

Re:sound #130 The Chicago Show (rebroadcast)

This hour, we're bringing you a favorite from our archive... Chicago. Hogbutcher to the world, jewel of the Midwest, and everything in-between. Wild Onion by Gwen Macsai. Chicago, as all Chicagoans know, means wild onion. Wild, as in feral, unpredictable, fierce, blustery, lunatic. Onion, as in layered, spicy, sometimes stinky, sometimes sweet, and always tear-inducing. The Chicago Sound Drops: - Couple Two Tree by Sean Cole - Studs and Jimmy by Alan Hall - Riding Through the Summer by Katie Mingle, - Elevated (Grand Chicago) by Aaron Ximm - Chicago's Gangster by Heather Radke - Beat Street by Chris Sewell - The Big City by Sean Hurley - I've Never Lived in Chicago by Jonathan Mitchell Tripping the Light Fantastic with Abraham Levitan by Delaney Hall and Jacob Anderson.

Re:sound #68 The Big Show Show (rebroadcast)

This hour, we're bringing you a favorite from our archive... the Rockettes, the opera, congress, and other spectacles! To find out what these producers have been up to since we first aired the show, visit ThirdCoastFestival.org Backstage With the Rockettes by Dean Olsher and Emily Botein (The Next Big Thing, 2004) Manhattan has plenty of icons: the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Broadway marquee. But come December, there's really only one show in town: the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular, featuring fireworks, a flying santa, an indoor snowfall, and of course the world-famous Rockettes. The Tristan Mysteries: The Five-Hour Mystery by Amy O'Leary and Limor Tomer (WNYC, 2007) Opera, by its very nature, is synonymous with extravaganza: the huge voices, the sweeping music, the epic story-lines, the performance that lasts hours. Wagner's Tristan und Isolde, a five-hour opera, is no exception and it has one of the most colorful histories around. Tristan und I...

Re:sound #273 The Birth of Being

This hour, stories about family ties, love and loss. The Birth of Solomon by Leila Day for The Stoop. He was the perfect little brown baby. His name was Solomon. Thick curly hair, chubby legs and eyes closed with dark black lashes. Solomon's story is one that affects thousands of Black families whose babies are twice as likely to die before reaching the age of one, and Black mothers are up to four times more likely to die from pregnancy related causes. This story goes deep behind the statistic. The Being Sound by Stephanie Rowden for ShortCuts from BBC Radio 4. Over the years, Stephanie Rowden has been chasing after her son's voice. The timbre and cadence always about to slip away, and into something new. She uses the microphone as a kind of butterfly net. If you're lucky, you catch a tiny miracle or two. Or perhaps one big riddle. Give His Voice Back to Him by Audrey McGlinchy for KUT. In 2016, a black teenager was killed by an Austin Police officer. His name was David Joseph. He w...

Re:sound #272 Radio Residents

This week, three stories by alumni of the Third Coast Radio Residency. The making of a Chinese American beauty queen by Hannah Kingsley-Ma; edited by Jen Chien & mixed by Gabe Grabin for KALW. Every Lunar New Year, Chinese American women from across the country travel to San Francisco to participate in the Miss Chinatown USA pageant — an ethnic beauty pageant that’s been a national event since the late fifties. Little Wrist Computer by James T. Green for Welcome to Macintosh. The Apple Watch sometimes gets a bad rap. Some people complain about it being useless, a dumb, frivolous toy. But one person thinks differently. Gargling by Erisa Apantaku (Re:sound debut). After moving back in with dad, producer Erisa Apantaku notices a strange sound coming from the house. This episode of Re:sound was produced by Isabel Vázquez. The 2019 Third Coast Radio Residency begins on May 14. Learn more about this year’s Residents.
