    Walking the Woods and the Water: In Patrick Leigh Fermor's footsteps from the Hook of Holland to the Golden Horn:


      In 1933, the eighteen-year-old Patrick Leigh Fermor set out in a pair of hobnailed boots to chance and charm his way across Europe, "like a tramp, a pilgrim, or a wandering scholar." The books he later wrote about this walk, A Time of Gifts, Between the Woods and the Water, and the posthumous The Broken Road are a half-remembered, half-reimagined journey through cultures now extinct, landscapes irrevocably altered by the traumas of the twentieth century.


      Aged eighteen, Nick Hunt read A Time of Gifts and dreamed of following in Fermor's footsteps. In 2011 he began his own "great trudge"—on foot all the way to Istanbul. He walked across eight countries, following two major rivers and crossing three mountain ranges. With only Fermor's books to guide him, he trekked some 2,500 miles through Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey.


      His aim? To have an old-fashioned adventure. To slow down and linger in a world where we pass by so much, so fast. To discover for himself what remained of hospitality, kindness to strangers, freedom, wildness, adventure, the mysterious, the unknown, the deeper currents of myth and story that still flow beneath Europe's surface.

    in Sports

    Too many athletes miss the chance to play in college because they didn't know what to do.  Brendan Kennedy of National Scouting Report ("NSR") is here for a one hour chat about the college recruiting process for high school players.  


     "I wish I had met you earlier in the recruiting process," is a phrase I hear far too often, says Brendan Kennedy, " Don't miss out on an opportunity to be recruited."


    NSR is the most revered high school scouting and college recruiting organization in the world. Since 1980, college coaches have depended on NSR to present quality prospects for recognition, evaluation and recruitment.

    The Legend Lives On: Tommy Hunt

    in Lifestyle

    Pittsburgh-born vocalist Tommy Hunt's recording career began at age 20, when he cut singles with his first group, the Five Echoes, in 1953. It was five years later, however, that he made his greatest mark on popular music, rock & roll, and R&B, as a member of the Flamingos from 1958 through 1961. Those years coincided with the group's being signed to End Records, and the release of their biggest, most identifiable hit, "I Only Have Eyes for You" -- Hunt's dramatic background singing, coupled with the restrained piano backing, made it one of the transcendent documents of '50s R&B.  Hunt left the Flamingos in 1962 and signed as a solo artist with Florence Greenberg's Scepter Records in New York where he later released his first top 10 chart maker "Human".   Hunt has spent the past 40 years performing and making hits in England and performing throughout the European continent.

    Saturday Afternoon with Carolyn: Eric Hunt on his newest film "Majdanek Myths"

    in Education

    Carolyn Yeager talks with Eric Hunt, creator of the Holocaust Hoax Museum where you can go on a virtual tour of all the most important National-Socialist concentration/work/transit camps in Poland and learn "everything you ever wanted to know and then some" about the Holohoax.


    Our topic will be Majdanek, an ordinary camp very close to the city of Lublin and the subject of Eric's latest film, The Majdanek Gas Chamber Myth, which he has made available to watch at his Holocaust Hoax Museum website ... for free!  Eric tells us all the latest information he has discovered and has put in the film, but that has not been updated at the "virtual tour" yet at the time of this show. One thing is sure, Majdanek was not a death camp.


    Call-ins welcome in the 2nd hour at 323-642-1206.

    in Sports

    Good man manager but poor transfer business management?  Will he ever field a decent defense or is he all offensive flair? Real Madrid dominated Liverpool in group play - can Brendan Rodgers handle being on the big stage or was last year a one man show and now he's in over his head?  We delve into the shaky state of Liverpool football. We recap the Clasico - was that an awesome game or what? Real Madrid made a statement shredding a previously unscored upon Barca.   Where was Messi - how did the magician do a disappearing act?  Man City gives up a late equilizer in Moscow and returns to get beat by the Hammers - how will they do in this week's derby vs. a Man U team on the upswing? Chelsea - still undefeated but maybe not invincible? Can those surprising Saints and Hammers continue their runs of excellence? We cover these topics and more!
