P Swann here thanking everyone for the great support during our 2009 Spring Fund Drive, making it WRIR's best Fund Drive ever. We may be out there but we're not outliers.

This week, we've got crazy covers, Tarvuism (again), an excerpt from Slaughterhouse Five, (ok, yes) Keith Caradine, & this week's OUTSIDER ROYALTY Merle Hazard.

Now that that's over, we can all play in the garden.
Recorded in the studios of WRIR 97.3LPFM Richmond VA.
Check out to learn about the many wonderful programs broadcast on WRIR
& consider supporting our fine project.
It's great to have some economy & ecology jokes by someone who knows what they're talking about. And his wife is one of the authors of "Mason Dixon Knitting" - ok, if you have to ask, you better put down those needles.

There's plenty of other items to snicker about on Merle's website
Enjoy ...
