PRX Ends Nuke Work

Hi friend of PRX,

It took some doing. A few calls from the president. But PRX has reluctantly agreed to stop work on a nuclear fuel processing facility near a Dunkin’ Donuts in Harvard Square. “The crullers were glowing,” said PRX’s Jake Shapiro. “That and CPB won’t fund it anyway.”

PRX has refused to stop work on a parallel project called the Accelerator. “We have nothing to hide from the inspectors,” said Shapiro.

Boom,
John


1967 with Sound Opinions

Free to all stations

1967, the year…
Recording studios changed the way music was created.
The album changed the way music is heard.
The festival remade the way music is celebrated live.
Pop music became big business.

Sound Opinions explores landmark releases by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Love, and the Velvet Underground in the new special available free to all member stations (even if you don’t get the show weekly): 1967: Rock and Roll Comes of Age.
