First episode of the Wolverhampton Radiophonic Institute

Here’s a post I’ve made to the Wolverhampton Radiophonic Institute blog:

Nerves are jangling here at the Institute. We’re just four days away from the very first episode of the Wolverhampton Radiophonic Institute on 101.8 WCR FM!

So, what do we have planned for this first show? Here’s a taster:

  • The Cynic’s Guide to 9/11 Conspiracy Theories: a documentary looking at alternative explanations for what happened on September 11th 2001, the conspiracy theorists behind them and the sceptical response. Features former MOD UFO investigator Nick Pope on the sceptics’ side.
  • The Generalist Party: interview and debate with two guys from Grimsby who’ve started a new political party.
  • Dan Whitehouse live: local singer-songwriter Dan Whitehouse will be in to play live in the studio and talk about his music.
  • Illustrator Sarah Ray: interview with the local illustrator.
  • Musician Dan Bryk: interview with and music from the Canadian musician who has released his latest EP under a Creative Commons licence.
  • Topical political debate: continuing the best of the Wolverhampton Politics Show, we’ll be discussing the political stories and themes of the day.

Plus there’ll be arts news, a run-down of what’s on in Wolverhampton, general chat and more!
