PRX Gobbles

Hi friend of PRX,

It’s consumption season! Candy this week, turkey and fixin’s in a few more weeks, and then buying-of-everything shortly thereafter. Stations are certainly consuming PRX: from Reveal to the many War of the Worlds, to JFK memories to Here’s The Thing.

It’s a radio buffet: EAT.

Radio Candy Bag

Don’t skip this house

More for Halloween

Holidays and remembrances


Try these

  • Third Coast competition winner Parts of Speech: Doug is a born communicator, but it’s not because he has the loudest voice in the room. (Stay tuned for Best of the Best: The Third Coast Festival Broadcast coming Nov. 18.)
  • WNYC’s Life After Sandy: One Year Later is sobering and impressively reported.

Other Good Stuff

  • PRX’s Audrey Mardavich reports on the future from Radiovision.
  • Lou Reed special coming from Paul Ingles later this week.
  • 99% Invisible is back with another Kickstarter project, this time to expand to a weekly podcast and to hire Sean Cole as a monthly contributor.
