The Greatest Heel in the Garden

01 August 2015:  “The Greatest Heel In The Garden” or “Two Tributes At Once”

Today at 12pm, PST on What’s This Called on kpsu.org, your host, Ricardo Wang from Earth Two will be honoring The Greatest Heel that ever wore a kilt.

AND….For the first time ever in radio history, a second tribute will be attempted at the SAME time as the tribute to The Greatest Heel occurs. Ms. Lynn Anderson, who left us as well this week will be remembered today. Two hours of memories, words, and songs lovingly packaged into one hour. Radio history, people, radio history!

Ricardo Wang is at the beach collecting 2 dozen eggs for an omelette. He’ll be back, (i swear), next week!!!

But if you know what’s good for you, you’ll be here in The Pit.

Don Joyce

(February 9, 1944 – July 22, 2015)

Today at 12pm, PST on KPSU.com, we will be honoring the legacy of Don Joyce. Since I will be transmitting from Earth Two, I was only able to obtain the tip of the iceberg that is the work of Mr. Joyce and an interview with him and Mark Hosler. Ricardo Wang  from your earth will be back next week with his own tribute, which will  be more of everything that I, Ricardo Wang, can not offer you from Earth Two.

Today, on What’s This Called?, we will learn. We will learn in both ears. Separately and together, we will hear about monsters, wolves and and the monster’s wife who fear the wolves.

We also will be under the control of Ricardo Wang from Earth Two who brings you lessons, songs and words about experimental things.
