The day ahead on WGXC 90.7-FM
12:05 a.m.: Radio Stew: Whale Radio Anna Friz listens to whales, and thinks they have already set up the utopian radio system that futurists and visionaries have longed for. Excerpts taken from Friz's keynote speech Sun., May 19, 2013 at Trans-X Transmission Art Symposium. Plus how dolphins transmit underwater, "Pistol Shrimp" from Joshua Fried, and more.
1 a.m.: Symposium on Future of Radio Features music from Darondo, Hoyt Axton, Abner Jay, Louis Prima, Tiger, Kraftwerk, Johnny Bush, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Sun Ra, and more. Recorded in Portland, OR; first aired on Boston Free Radio.
2 a.m.: Bob's Slacktime Playhouse: Nerds The Lymph Node Institute's "Nerds" Show stands as some of the finest cream of their SubGenius genius! Doc Ellis and Doktor Bugbladder explore the furtive, sweaty world of comics/SF fandom from the unblinking eye of an insider's perspective. In the "Gamers' Youth Encounter Situational Therapy" session, Doc, Bugsy, and Doktor T. Nitus use broadly drawn archetypes of the principal gamer types: The closet-case dungeonmaster, the hormone-addled nutcase, the coolly obtuse narcissist, and the fetal-balled paranoid failure, all thrown together in a snake-pit RPG session that unleashes the twisted psyches of each player in fearsome ways. Musical selections by Devo and the Butthole Surfers try like hell to offset the plangent tones of Leonard Nimoy waxing nostalgic about hobbits--but the horror that is filking takes the show straight down the greased, spasming throat of Satan, and the LNI boys add to the insanity with their own creation, "Filking in the USA."

6 a.m.: Background Briefing with Ian Masters Inside breaking international and national news. A radio program featuring international and national news, expert guests, policy makers and critics with analysis and insight on national security, foreign and domestic policy, political, cultural and social issues.
