Where Have You Been? visits Let It Snow! — A Winter Wonderland

In Episode 22 of “Where Have You Been?” — the final episode of 2021 — we vis­it “Let It Snow!” — a beau­ti­ful win­ter region cre­at­ed by artist Mil­ly Sharple. Beau­ti­ful­ly detailed and laid out, there are a great many attrac­tions here. It’s described as “A snowy, win­ter set­ting for danc­ing and romanc­ing. Come and explore, dance, ice-skate, take pho­tographs, or just hang out.

We’ve uploaded two more shows to our “Lis­ten Again” facil­i­ty on Mixcloud:

Where Have You Been?” Episode 21 vis­its the The­atre On The Hill, which is much more than a gor­geous the­atre. There’s a gallery. An exten­sive sub­ter­ranean per­for­mance area that tips its hat to The Cav­ern Club. A com­plete region to explore, with a Zen Gar­den, med­i­ta­tive space, con­ser­va­to­ry, amphithe­atre, memo­r­i­al gar­dens, var­i­ous camp­fires and scenic way­sides. And there’s one of Yavan­na Llanfair’s won­der­ful pod tours around the region, whim­si­cal­ly script­ed with mes­sages about what you’re see­ing as you trav­el round. And…

Tarot @ Teatime” Episode 20: Using the images of the Rid­er Waite Smith Tarot deck, Hon­ey and Wil­low explore the next six cards of the Major Arcana: VI The Lovers, VII The Char­i­ot, VIII Strength, IX The Her­mit, X Wheel of For­tune, and XI Jus­tice. The evo­lu­tion of the card names and sym­bol­ism are dis­cussed, as well as pos­si­ble interpretations.

The Fourth Tower of Inverness continues… Week 11

TODAY on Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio — Fri­day, Decem­ber 3rd.
The Fourth Tow­er of Inver­ness  con­tin­ues with Week 11 of this excit­ing mys­tery adventure.

Airs just after the hour at Noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific Time / 8pm and mid­night in the UK.

Jack dis­cov­ers the source of all the strange crea­tures around the Inver­ness estate… Then he climbs the end­less stairs inside the Fourth Tow­er: search­ing for the mys­te­ri­ous juke­box and loaded down with nick­els to feed it, he enters the third door. What will hap­pen to him there? And then, there’s the drag­on… “By Jove, that is odd…”

Arriv­ing at the Inver­ness estate, Jack Flan­ders encoun­ters strange hap­pen­ings at the old Vic­to­ri­an man­sion. Jack is told that there are only three tow­ers in Inver­ness, even though he is cer­tain he has seen a fourth. An old juke­box, which he can­not locate, plays a haunt­ing 50’s tune just before an acci­dent hap­pens. Jack pur­sues the hid­den juke­box, search­ing through slid­ing pan­els, hol­low walls, and under­ground pas­sage­ways until final­ly he dis­cov­ers the entrance to the Fourth Tow­er that only he can see. In all these years, eight peo­ple have ven­tured into the Tow­er, nev­er to be seen again. Jack is the ninth…

Upon enter­ing the tow­er, Jack dis­cov­ers steps that spi­ral end­less­ly upward. On each lev­el there is a door, and as our hero opens each door he steps into dif­fer­ent dimen­sions: strange worlds of myth and mys­ti­cal fantasy.

Hits In Hi-Fi

Today — Sat­ur­day 27th Novem­ber — we’ll take a nos­tal­gic jour­ney back to the 1950s and 1960s and beyond, when music was on vinyl (don’t touch the play­ing sur­face!) and home audio was new and excit­ing­ly futur­is­tic… with Hits In Hi-Fi.

In the ear­ly days of stereo, a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of albums were released that were designed espe­cial­ly to show off the won­ders of this new way of pre­sent­ing musi­cal enter­tain­ment. Sounds “ping-ponged” across the stereo sound­stage; instru­ments appeared hard on one side and then hard on the oth­er… and there were a lot of space ref­er­ences, bloops and bleeps start­ing and end­ing the pieces — and once the Moog Syn­the­sis­er became avail­able, that was includ­ed in the mix too.

The Fourth Tower of Inverness continues… Week 10

TODAY on Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio — Fri­day, Novem­ber 26th.

Airs just after the hour at Noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific Time / 8pm and mid­night in the UK.

Jack has spot­ted Lord Jowls in the crowd… but how can they actu­al­ly meet?

Arriv­ing at the Inver­ness estate, Jack Flan­ders encoun­ters strange hap­pen­ings at the old Vic­to­ri­an man­sion. Jack is told that there are only three tow­ers in Inver­ness, even though he is cer­tain he has seen a fourth.
