This month’s Persiflage Puzzle has four words of five, three, seven and four letters respectively. The clue is “The sisters credited with writing the most popular song in the English language”.
It’s the 75th birthday of Canberra’s oldest radio station, 1053 2CA, and as such I chat with 2CA breakfast co-host Paul Blunt about the birthday and the celebrations which are taking place, including an Outside Broadcast from the location of their first studio on Giles Street Kingston.
Also on the agenda this month is a chat with radio historian Wayne Mac about 2CA’s birthday, Wayne’s Book, and the rather excessive number of significant radio birthdays this year.
There is some listeners feedback…some of it quite amusing.
All listeners are invited to send in more feedback, both in written and audio format. As per usual feedback can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (text, MP3, Wave or Ogg Vorbis), spoken feedback by clicking here or on the button below would be great, or leave a comment below.
There are various highlights of Samuel’s appearances on 2CA scattered throughout the episode, as well as all the other regular features.
The Samuel’s Persiflage #10 file itself is available here, and is 1:11:28 in length (65.4MB) at 128kbps stereo. The 128kbps format was decided upon because it produces a very good sound quality, and doesn’t “flatten” any music used in the podcast. I do, however, acknowledge that this is just unreasonable for dial-up, so a 16kbps mono file is also available here. The sound quality isn’t as good, but some people like it. The low quality version is 8.17MB
Podcast related questions and comments can be sent to email@example.com or left in the comments section of this post. Spoken feedback is preferred (but not mandated) and can be sent either in MP3, Wave or Ogg Vorbis format, or sent even more easily by clicking the button below and following the prompts.
