Give It A Go #8

At a time of confusion or grief or both public broadcasting comes into its own.

In an age of the “now”, we desperately need context to help us cope when appalling things happen.

Here’s NPR’s “All Things Considered

To happier things and a fine example of dry and witty comedy.

“The Small, Intricate Life of Gerald C Potter” has barely aged in 30-plus years.  It’s humour rests with the interplay and word play between Gerald and his wife Diana.  A delight.

An example of music as the universal language.  Rapal is a nightly show on BBC Radio nan Gaidheal, the BBC’s Gaelic station for Scotland.  Its brief is to play the best of contemporary music from wherever that music comes from.  A splendid example of a broad brief for a niche program, which is helping break down barriers.
