Hour Of The Wolf radio show has Triptree

SFFaudio Online Audio

Online Audio - Hour Of The WolfHour Of The Wolf, is a two-hour live radio program on WBAI (99.5 FM) in New York presenting Science Fiction and Fantasy. Each program promises either a reading, radio drama or interview, often the entry will be quite mixed. The long running program also sometimes features live call-ins. Hour Of The Wolf has for a long time had a rudimentary website, but actual listening to the broadcast is made rather difficult by its lack of radio syndication, lack of a podcast and unwieldy hours of broadcast (5am to 7am on Sunday mornings). You can however with a bit of finesse use the WBAI archive, to catch recent shows. I’ve managed to navigate some of the playlist archives and found a few gems I think everyone will appreciate…

September 9th 2006 – Guest and SF author Barry N. Malzberg talks about James Triptree Jr.! |MP3|

August 26th 2006 – An ARTC Radio Drama entitled Hour Of The Wolf and a radio dramatization of James Triptree Jr.’s “Houston, Houston, Do You Read?”. |MP3|

August 5th 2006 – The guest is Julie Philips author of James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon. |MP3|

With no RSS feed or podcast we’ll just have to keep checking the website to see what new, or old, shows catch our interest.

  1. Jesse,

    The WBAI Hour of the Wolf program and the interviews about Tiptree were mentioned and linked in the October 05, 2006 Online Audio entry about Julie Phillips’ book, James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice Sheldon. That entry also gave the start and stop times for the Sci-Fi Radio production of Tiptree’s Hugo and Nebula award-winning story, “Houston, Houston, Do You Read?” in the linked WBAI Hour of the Wolf broadcast, and included a link to a description of the Sci-Fi Radio production at the OTR Plot Spot. What I didn’t realize at the time of posting is that this radio program made it into Mark Time’s SF Audio Hall of Fame. You can see it if you click through the links in the entries about the Mark TIme and OGLE awards in your post below!

  2. The specific link should have been to the October 05, 2006 program (instead of the October 2006 archive page). The Sci-Fi Radio production of “Houston, Houston, Do You Read?” was the 1989 Mark Time SF Audio Hall of Fame entry.
