Default A Chapter A Day

I was a long-time listener to public radio in Chicago. I'd listen to it when mucking stalls each AM-- it seemed so appropriate to listen to their liberal BS while dealing with all that manure.

But now I'm in WI and must say public radio here is outstanding-- many shows on health, nature, conservancy and gardening.

I've been listening to a show they've been running each day for, as I came to realize when looking up a link for this post, for 90 yrs ( !) A Chapter A Day has the announcer reading a new book, often a history, biography or novel, as the name says, a chapter a day. It makes a relaxing half hour to help enjoy desert and coffee after lunch each day.

Available on demand here: http://www.wpr.org/programs/chapter-day


Maybe you'll enjoy it too.

Thinks for that post and link doc.

I have listened to that program years ago when I worked in the data center on second shift. Long nights in the warehouse by myself doing data entry. I listened through a couple books then.

We are also in the broadcast area for Madison, home of the U of W. The public TV station runs a daily lecture series from the U on an eclectic list of subjects, available on demand here: http://wpt.org/programs/university-place

WI apparently has a long history of using the broadcast waves as a means to enhance the learning experience in its one room school house systems.

I post these so we retirees don't have to while away the hours like the hermit dam watchman in the wilderness of Maine who juggled a single musket ball for hours on end, described by Thoreau http://www.gutenberg.org/files/34990/34990-h/34990-h.htm
