Ron and Jean, late of KFAI’s Radio Rumpus Room, filled in for Jackson this week, as he was otherwise engaged in working out the terms of his Work Release arrangement. (Though in fairness the substitute hosts did not get independent confirmation of that claim by anyone, much less the regular host. So maybe you should just pretend we didn’t say that.) — Ron and Jean

Celebrating 25 years of Amphetamine Reptile and all things flies.
The radio show that made someone call and say it was 2 hours of “take no prisoners”. I think that’s a good thing – as intended. You decide.
Tonight’s guest is Louise Dillery, who was a teenager living in Paris at the time of the Allied liberation of Paris from the Nazis. She speaks of the deprivation and fears during the German occupation and of her great joy and tense moments as the Allies rolled into Paris, while snipers remained, firing on the civilians.
The second half of the hour, we will hear old and new songs about summer: the heat, vacations by the sea and the hot sun.
