Arthur Miller - A View From The Bridge

A View From The Bridge was first staged on September 29, 1955, as a one-act verse drama at the Coronet Theatre on Broadway and the two-act version premiered in the New Watergate theatre club in London’s West End.

Lorraine Hansberry - A Raisin In The Sun (Part 2)

A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry debuted on Broadway in 1959. The title comes from the poem “Harlem” (also known as “A Dream Deferred” by Langston Hughes. The story tells of a black family’s experiences in “Clybourne Park”, a fictionalized version of the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood, as they attempt to improve their financial circumstances with an insurance payout following the death of the father.

Arthur Miller - All My Sons

Miller wrote All My Sons as a final attempt at writing a commercially successful play; he vowed to “find some other line of work” if the play did not find an audience. It is based upon a true story. It was a success in 1947 and ran until 1949. Henrik Ibsen’s influence on Miller is evidenced from the Ibsen play The Wild Duck in the theme of two partners in business where one is forced to take moral and legal responsibility for the other. For his criticism of the American Dream Arthur Miller was summoned before the House Un-American Activities Committee during the 1950s.

Tip Of The Iceberg

Good Evening Listeners: Tonight is a very special science oriented show. I have selected three episodes of WIRED’s First Season of a show called 5 Levels. In these shows, a scientist will attempt to explain a particular cutting-edge scientific topic to a child, a teen, an undergraduate in the field concerned, a graduate in the field and finally, to a colleague in that field. First up is a talk on Quantum Computing, hosted by Talia Gershon. Next, is a talk about the Connectome Brain Mapping Project, hosted by Dr. Bobby Kashuri. The third talk is hosted by Neville Sanjana and deals with the CRISPR Gene Editor technology. To finish the evening, we are treated to Alok Bhardwaj’s TEDx presentation about his EPIC Privacy Browser project. You will hear a musical excerpt of Eye In The Sky by The Alan Parsons Project. In this evening, it is my hope and I think that also of WIRED that you will learn that complex concepts are easily grasped by anyone once the barrier of specialized language is removed. Let’s get started, shall we?

History of Genghis Khan - Genghis#1

This book provides the history of one of the most renowned emperors of all time. The Great Khan. This was a man born Temujin to a clan leader father who was later poisoned. The family was left unprotected and without power to fend for themselves on the Eurasian Steppe. Genghis later rose to power and founded the Mongol Empire, one of the largest in all of history. Despite his great achievement and ferocious reputation there is much we do not know of him, even what he looked like. Historians state that there is not a single portrait of the man that survives to the present day. All current renditions are done after his death by people who never knew him. His death is recorded and his entombment discussed…but all remains to be found. The legend lives on as to what will happen when his burial place is found. Another quality history by Jacob Abbott.

The continuing saga of Peter the Great.

Jacob Abbott - Peter The Great - PTG#1

There are very few persons who have not heard of the fame of Peter the Great, the founder, as he is generally regarded by mankind, of Russian civilization. The celebrity, however, of the great Muscovite sovereign among young persons is due in a great measure to the circumstance of his having repaired personally to Holland, in the course of his efforts to introduce the industrial arts among his people, in order to study himself the art and mystery of shipbuilding and of his having worked with his own hands in a ship-yard there. The little shop where Peter pursued these practical studies still stands in Saardam, a ship-building town not far from Amsterdam. The building is of wood, and is now much decayed; but, to preserve it from farther injury, it has been incased in a somewhat larger building of brick, and it is visited annually by great numbers of curious travelers. -From the forward of the book.

Seven Stories by H.P. Lovecraft - HPLSS#1 (Story 1 to Story 4)

“Gorgons, and Hydras, and Chimaeras—dire stories of Celaeno and the Harpies—may reproduce themselves in the brain of superstition—but they were there before. They are transcripts, types—the archetypes are in us, and eternal. How else should the recital of that which we know in a waking sense to be false come to affect us at all? Is it that we naturally conceive terror from such objects, considered in their capacity of being able to inflict upon us bodily injury? O, least of all! These terrors are of older standing. They date beyond body—or without the body, they would have been the same… . That the kind of fear here treated is purely spiritual—that it is strong in proportion as it is objectless on earth, that it predominates in the period of our sinless infancy—are difficulties the solution of which might afford some probable insight into our ante-mundane condition, and a peep at least into the shadowland of pre-existence.” —Charles Lamb: “Witches and Other Night-Fears”

EWMT#2 (Part Two)

Part Two of An Evening With Mark Twain

We begin with a piece entitled:

“1601- A Conversation As It Was By The Social Fireside In The Time Of The Tudors” -a humorous piece of epic satire that answers the literary question, “How would Shakespeare describe a fart?”

We finish with an essay entitled, “Concerning The Jew” which was first published in Harper’s New Monthly Magazine Vol. 99 in Sep. of 1899. Besides the intellect, sagacity, common sense and humanity inherent in this essay, we are treated to the mellifluous voice of Michelle Fry of Baton Rouge, La. who is our narrator. It’s a win-win for those that tune in.

EWMT#1 (Part One)

Part One of An Evening With Mark Twain

Beginning with an exceptional speech that will be invaluable to any student of Asian Affairs or Philippine history. It was aptly addressed to “Those Sitting In Darkness” by which Mark Twain meant the general public who had little access to the truth via their media of the day. (ring a bell?)

We finish with a hilarious description of Mark Twain’s coping with the then newly popular telephone and how weird it was to hear “one sided conversations” for the first time in human history. Similar to when people first got Bluetooth and everyone thought they were schizophrenics for talking out loud on the bus.
