PRI's RadioWest and comic fun

RadioWest, the daily radio show out of KUER in Salt Lake City is a fabulous program hosted by Doug Fabrizio. Last week he had a series of great shows including one devoted to Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, which is a must even for people who are not fans of the composer of classical music in general.

He also had a Holiday Book Show where Ken Sanders of Ken Sanders Rare Books recommended collections of Carl Barks' Donald Duck and Floyd Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse (available now from Fantagraphics). While he didn't recommend the gorgeous new collections of Walt Kelly's Pogo (also from Fantagraphics), Sanders did sing Walt Kelly's holiday song "Deck Us All with Boston Charlie"on the radio, which for those who don't know the song, is a lot of fun. One of my favorite holiday songs (though admittedly, I don't have many)

If you have time, take a listen. There's plenty more great book suggestions.
