Wednesday, September 11 - Son of Ruthie!
Well, no. I think UNCLE RUTHIE BUELL already has an actual son, but the title above is hopefully funnier and more provocative than only "Uncle Ruthie Part II." Either way, if you can't get enough of everybody's favorite Saturday morning children's radio host and all-around performer-activist-poet (and who can?) then tonight's second half of my hour in Studio C with Uncle Ruthie is right for you. (I wish there were a third and fourth show, but you can purchase CDs and tune in on Saturdays, 8:30 am, can't you?) On the occasion of the publication of her new poetry collection, Come to My Voice, I share with you my time with Uncle Ruthie playing her CDs, her guitar and reading from the book, a completely satisfying yet also surprising collection of all kinds of work, in all kinds of genres, on any number of topics. This is one wise, funny, generous and witty writer, performer, which you already knew of course. But I hope you have as much fun listening as I had being reminded of that. Thanks for listening, on the radio, online or anytime you darn well please on a little machine in your ear. Go to the station archives for that.
