Halloween 2018 Special

It’s a shadowy dark world this early in the morning. This week on The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, a chilling adventure through music and stories. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Bauhaus, Timber Timbre, Gnarls Barkley and more. Two stories: a true account of one family’s experience living in a haunted house for 11 years, and a teacher learns a lesson himself as a Halloween costume saga unfolds.

Half Tunes, Half Wolff

This week on tHe SwEet an sOuR vArIeTy HoUR
Half music, half talking. The first 30 minutes is uninterrupted tunage, including my favourite track off Smithy Ramone’s new EP Cursed (you can even get a comic book or cassette tape!). The second half is a segment by global community member and economic expert of the world, Richard D. Wolff giving us the lowdown on current ish.

From the Economic Update website: Updates on UK’s Liberal Democrats advocating serious reduction of wealth and income inequality, Sears CEO blames pensions for Sears’ problems, JP Morgan predicts next financial collapse in 2020, failure to deal with opioid crisis, G-20 meeting in Argentina evades real issues, Europeans clash with US over trade with Iran, trivial SEC fine for Citigroup dishonesty with investors. Major discussion: political economy of immigration as a right-wing issue and an effective left-wing response.
