PRX Station Newsletter
May 12, 2009


Hi friend of PRX,

Ouch. For those who swear by the benefits of tiny, sharp needles being poked in your body to relieve pain, a new study says people get the same benefits by using toothpicks instead.

No such psychosomatic tricks with PRX, thank you very much: just real, honest-to-goodness radio and lots of choices. PRX — the best cure for dull listening.

This won’t hurt a bit…

  1. I am looking for a B Side Radio piece about a kid trying to turn his life around and stop stealing after hearing his mom cry on the phone. In the piece he interviews/talks with a social worker. I am trying to find a piece by a sister talking to her brother and his friends about him giving up his youth at age 13 to dedicate himself to the trumpet. I discovered prx channel 136 on XM radio last week and I’m addicted the only problem– a big one for me. I listen in my car hear something fascinating (can’t write anything down) then get home want go online and listen to it again or share it with someone. I cannot. I have never been able to find a single thing — I tried searching I tried searching the xm site. I tried googling for what I think I can recall as key words in the piece I heard. I tried searching for one piece by “B Side Radio” because that was given credit on air. For another I Tried “This American Life” because that was source. I really think I’d have better luck if there was a way to search archives by day and time or if I could post to a forum and ask someone.
