What do you listen to while waiting for the Len Tillem show at 3:00pm and the Gil Gross show at 4:00pm on KKSF-Newstalk 910-AM?  As you know, I listen to BBC Radio 2 ( in the morning and I usually try to listen to the archived podcasts of Gil Gross to hear the hours I’ve missed after leaving the office for the day.  Lately, his shows have been shortened for a sports broadcast.  Sometimes he’s only on the air for an hour and a half.  There is nothing for me to listen to the next day, no missed hours of Gil’s show.  Also, I don’t listen to missed Friday shows because I wouldn’t intentionally listen to the high-pitched voice of Rhoda.  It’s just not a pleasant experience.  I love Gil, but not a fan of Rhoda’s voice.  Some people like it, some people don’t.

Anyway, I’ve found other options while waiting for the 3:00pm programs on KKSF-Newstalk 910-AM.  One of them is Radiolab.  Here’s a page of their program archives:

The nice thing about Radiolab is the corresponding blog and special segments beyond the hour-long program.  One blog post is about the big event of this past week: the sky is falling, the sky is falling!


Asteroid Friday:

This blog post includes a NASA live-streaming event that, of course, is no longer relevant.  But, there is interesting information and more video shots of the Russian asteroid.


It’s that feeling of locking your keys in the car, intensified by 500 mph.  This is such an interesting program about the astronaut experience.  (Radiolab: Astronauts – Monday, October 8, 2012)

Ghost Stories

Click on Listen, it takes a few seconds before it starts playing after clicking the ‘Listen’.  There is an intentional long pause of silence there as well.

Ghost Stories (Radiolab: Season 10, Episode 9)

This segment includes the CPR Dummy and the most Terrifying Lucid Dream ever.

Another talk program I’ve listened to a few times:

London’s Biggest Conversation:

As always, if you’ve missed any of Len Tillem or Gil Gross programs (along with Lloyd Lindsay Young and Sebastian Kunz), they are all available in podcast:
