5pm to 6pm - Writer's Block "Sci-Fi"

Synopsis:  On this episode, host Tim Pylypiuk and co-host Bob Delaney take one last parting look at the Western involving humorous deconstruction before blasting off into the nether regions of Science-Fiction, plotting a course from early authors like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells to the classic staple of Gene Roddenbury's Star Trek.


6pm to 7pm - "The Grooming Hour"

Synopsis:  Tim Pylypik hosts another session of grooming and fine-tuning with Bill Boutin and April Griffin, the latter making her debut on Radio today.  They will perform selected bits from Phoebe Murer's serial play Meltdown involving the introduction of Polly and Adam in Season Three before the show takes a turn into "Serious" mode with a distillated, cliff-notes version of Tim Pylypiuk's 7-part mini-serial "Speak To Me".  Bill and April will take on roles and, for those who know the entire play, will witness a fresh interpretation of them before Tim reveals the context behind this selection of work at the episode's conclusion.
