I'm afraid the Brunch voice mail went caput with my frequent overtimes but no worries. It'll be back up soon. Let me begin by telling you we're begining with a Bible mystery again this time talking about Joshua and the Battle of Jeriko. We then look at "The Saint Closes the Case." It's England in the 1930's. Noone trusts anyone be it English or Nazi and the Saint is right in the middle. Enjoy. Those of you looking for the summer marathon stay tuned as it'll be posted soon. Questions or comments? Email still works. brunch@london.com

I want to begin this overview by thanking David O'neil from Extinct Attractions. Just recently he played an intervew of himself done by another podcaster. Well if Dave can do it ... so can I. And I really wanted to share this one with you guys without starting another podcast. So here it is. Lst Saturday I participated in an interview roundtable with noted baseball historian and local radio talk show host Ira Fistel. We talked about a lot of stuff including the 1919 Black Sox Scandal how baseball games were originally thrown the difference between a 19th century and current game and the state of baseball broadcasting. The pannel includes myself, noted otr personality Larry Gassman, Mike Stern and our exultant chair Bob Acosta. It's an hour and a half. And I really hope you come away learning something. If you're a baseball fan you're gonna love it. Btw what does this have to do with Brunch or BBC? Nothing!! But if Gary Chambers can take four month breaks and David Bales can just disappear ... lol ... well I can digress sometimes. Enjoy.

This has not been the easiest week for me. So I was glad the oprotunity showed itself and I was able to play this "surprise" for Tracey Morris of Disney Indiana. But I think you'll all enjoy it. It's "The Adventures of Superman," and it's the end of our "State Of The States," for this year. This fine piece directed by Dirk Maggs and written by him shows really great stereo sound and I think you will truly enjoy it. Next week catch m live at the Radio Out Of The Past Summer Marathon. Just go to http://www.radiooutofthepast.org beginning on Saturday August 15 at 9 am Pacific. You'll have to download some software but if you have a microphone you can participate.

We have a full episode this week plus a rant at the end. You could say that this is an episode full of wrapping up. See we start off by finishing "The Gunfighters." After that we have a brief interview with Peter Purves who played Steven in the original series. We move on to wrap up "The Dust Bowl Baladeers," chronicling the life of Woody Guthrie from WWII through his early death in 1967 at the age of 55. We then conclude with the final episode of the Arthur Conan Doyle novel "The Sign Of The Four," entitled "The Great Agra Treasure." And we finish all these wrapups by discussing last weekend's Friends Of The Magic. If you heard Matt Cox laugh this week you get to hear him rant. Send us an email at brunch@london.comcom or call us at 206 338 5879 and tell us what you prefer. There's also a question for you the listener this week as well. Thanks for listening and enjoy the show.
