The second half of Magician's Hat, a radio play about the life of Mexican Muralist David Siquieros
Talking Earth will play the second half of Magician's Hat, a radio play adapted from Bill Tremblay's book of poetry with the same title. Magician's Hat engages the life of Mexican muralist Jose "David" Alfaro Siqueros, whose vision of a free, generous, and artistically liberated Mexico unified and informed his inner and outer worlds.
Magician's Hat ranges as far as Siquero's life did, from a party in Gershwin's apartment to the Spanish Civil War and beyond. Talking Earth will air a short interview with author Bill Tremblay, as time permits. Talking Earth starts at 10 pm tonight.

We usually do our live reading show in November. But, this year we presented some audio dramas in honor of the 50th aniversary of the great British television show, Doctor Who. So, we'll start the year out with a live show. tonight, Fortunato will read the first two chapters of The Sargossa Manuscript by Jan Potocki. Set in the early 1700s, a young Walloon guard Alphonso van Worden sets off for Madrid through the haunted Sierra Morena. Along the way he incounters two lovely Moorism Princesses, aa well as some blood thirsty ghosts of executed bandits. The chapeters are from the most recent translation by Ian Maclean.
