Steve "Manwolf" Sullivan at the Burlington Vortex Conference, October 31 - November 2, 2008

Heads up!  This coming weekend -- October 31 (Halloween!) through November 2 -- I will be attending the Burlington Vortex Conference in Burlington, Wisconsin.

(If you've been following my Tweets on Twitter, or watching the bar on the left of the Uncanny Radio blog or my regular blog, you probably already knew that.)

The conference is a fun-filled weekend of famous and interesting speakers, get-togethers, and spooky tours on many topics familiar to listeners of Uncanny Radio.  There are some very cool guests and events planned.

I'll be there selling and signing books, hanging out, chatting with friends and fans, and maybe help Mary Sutherland (Uncanny Radio guest and owner of the SciFi cafe) record all the cool presentations she's got lined up.

I can't tell you exactly where I'll be at what time, but I'll be wearing my Uncanny Radio t-shirt, and if you've checked my sites you probably have some idea of what I look like.

Hope to see you there!

Khat 2, again - Brad Steiger replay - Oct. 29, Nov. 5

Linda and Steve are wrapped up in Halloween-type appearances and other stuff. Because of that, and the ongoing SNAFU with the Khat 2 broadcast, we've decided to do reruns for the next two weeks.

October 29, Replay of the Khat 2 broadcast that was preempted last week. Hopefully, this time our fans who like streaming can catch up with it.

November 5, replay of our great, early interview with Brad Steiger. If you haven't heard this, you should do yourself a favor.

We'll be back on November 12, with new shows, and probably a review or two of the Vortex Conference as well.

Happy Halloween!

A Friend's Family in Need of Help

Everybody -

My friend David's sister-in-law is going through a terrible time in the Philippines.  The short version is that her newborn baby went through a month of ICU care before dying, leaving the grieving parents with huge medical bills plus funeral expenses, and now the hospital won't release the baby's body until the bills are paid.

You can read the longer version of the story on my blog by clicking this sentence.

Or you can see it on my home page

Or paste the URL below if the link doesn't work.

I want to stress that these are REAL PEOPLE whom I know.  This is _not_ just another internet rumor.  The tragedy is real and the need immediate.

My friend has set up a special PayPal account to handle donations using this email:

If many people can help in a small way, perhaps together we can ease the burden on the grieving parents.

Please pass the information along to those who might help.

Thank you so much for your time and care.

KHAT HANSEN 2 "Things with Wings" - RELOADED

The best laid plans...

Well, one of our listeners reported that our rebroadcast of the Khat show tonight was actually preempted by a live sports broadcast. It would have been nice if the station had mentioned that -- another in a series of recent tough breaks for UR.

Additionally, though ZShare is up, our files (at least the recent one's I've checked) still seem to be down. They haven't responded to my emails about this.

So, the only quick and easy solution I could come up with was to repost the show. You can listen to it on the link below, though it should be active in the podcasts list and the old description as well.

Listen to Khat Hansen 2 RELOADED.

Still no ZShare - KHAT 2 REBROADCAST 10-22-08

ZShare seems to be back, but the podcasts aren't working. I'm hoping this will be resolved in the next day or so, but we have no leverage about it and nothing we can really do.

It's not only our stuff, but their whole site.

We will rebroadcast the show on Wednesday, 10/22/08, and hopefully the live streaming will work there.

Otherwise, we're open to suggestions for other, more-reliable free sites to put the shows up. (We can't have on-the-show ads and we have no budget for buying a podcast site.)

Sorry for the continuing trouble. We hope it will be resolved soon.

Podcasts Down - Hopefully Temporarily

Apparently, zShare, the site that hosts our podcasts is currently down because of technical difficulties.

At this moment, we have no idea what caused this, how long this will last, or if it will affect any of our library of shows. We hope not! Recently, the zShare site underwent an upgrade which made it easier to use. I wonder if perhaps some bug snuck into the programing at that time.

Sadly, there's nothing Linda or I (Steve) can do about this at the moment. Our only suggestion is to check back in the next day or so and see if it has returned.

Crossing your fingers couldn't hurt, either.

KHAT HANSEN - October 8 & 15 Guest

Choctaw Creature legends, Manwolf attack,
Khat Hansen is an American Choctaw medicine woman or "soul eater,", an archaeologist with a degree in anthropology, and a designated teller of tribal stories. At the age of 12, she had a terrifying encounter with a vicious Manwolf in Oregon that has colored her life interests and choices ever since. She has also witnessed Bigfoot, or Shampe in Choctaw, and explains that there are several different types and describes their appearance, behavior and origins. She shares insights and stories not usually available to the public, and gives an eyewitness account that will leave listeners white-knuckled.

MARY SUTHERLAND - October 1 Guest

We're talking underground tunnels & vortexes.

Mary Sutherland, owner and operator of Burlington Wisconsin's Sci-Fi Cafe and Earth Mysteries Museum, has been delving into the mysteries of the underground tunnel system that pervades the U.S., as well as the properties and functions of vortexes, time/space distortions that some believe are entrances to other dimensions. She believes the two phenomena are connected, and is sponsoring a Vortex Conference this Halloween weekend (2008) with a raft of noted speakers and local vortex and haunted woods tours. Learn what's right beneath our feet, and what may lurk there. Here's the Webcast.
