Site maintenance, and New Radio Listings

Have this afternoon re-added the link to Jib Jab under Diversions (to your left), about which I wrote on February 12th (the item may be found by clicking on the Diversions link, under Topics, to the right).

Also, this afternoon, under the Radio heading, links to three wonderfully informative and virtually must-listen National Public Radio (NPR) shows have been added: All Things Considered, Terry Gross' Fresh Air, and Morning Edition. In addition, another raft of radio links have been added.

In respect of All Things Considered, each day Monday to Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., hosts Robert Siegel, Michele Norris and Melissa Block present the programme's trademark mix of news, interviews, commentaries, reviews, and offbeat features. Steve Inskeep hosts the weekend programme. As is the case with all three of the NPR links, the option of listening to the entire programme, or individual items in which you're interested, is available.

Each weekday evening, on Fresh Air — NPR's Peabody Award-winning magazine of contemporary arts and issues — the programme features in-depth interviews with prominent cultural and entertainment figures, as well as distinguished experts on current affairs and news.

Winner of broadcasting's highest honour, the George Foster Peabody Award, for its outstanding contributions to American radio, Morning Edition offers a daily two-hour mix of news, analysis, interviews, commentaries, arts, features and music. Morning Edition is heard Monday through Friday on more than 600 NPR stations across the United States, and around the globe on NPR Worldwide ... and is now available as a link on VanRamblings.
