Sometimes, the internet is like magic. Actually, sometimes the internet is magic.
Consider this: Richard has a radio show on WNUR, 89.3 FM, in Chicago. The broadcast airs on Tuesdays at 4 a.m. Central time, 5 a.m. Eastern time, and traces the career of Prince, the musical artist, featuring lots of his songs as well as other information. It’s a really interesting, well-done show, and because I live in Columbus I normally wouldn’t be able to listen to it — were it not that the WNUR website has a “listen live” link on its website that allows me to check out the broadcast here in central Ohio.
So, the last few Tuesdays I’ve listened to Richard’s program after I’ve taken the dogs for our morning walk. It’s extremely cool to hear his distinctive voice come floating out of the computer from far away, as I sit in the pre-dawn darkness drinking my morning coffee. It’s wonderful to have that connection, and I’ll be listening again tomorrow morning.
As I said, sometimes the internet is magic.
