KGNU: Community radio for Boulder and Denver, Colorado!

This page, along with my one on Acupuncture, is kind of an overflow from my main KGNU page! It's here that you'll find not only extra pix and information, but actually cut-and-pastes from stuff that was used for my show off KGNU's official site where we usually remove stuff immediately after a show. Either way, I hope you enjoy the page - it sure brings back fond memories for me!

Making Primitive Fire

Shelley Schlender wrote:

Roger Wendell interviews Michael and Lorritta Slayton, who are longtime practitioners of primitive fire making and survival skills. Teaching at rendezvous, schools, and outdoors shows Michael and Lorritta have delighted thousands with their "Backup to the Bic" demonstrations - how to create a lifesaving fire during an emergency when matches and high-tech lighters won't do the trick. Primitive fire making focuses on very old, but tried and true ways of making fire. Today, Michael "Big Smoke" and Lorritta "Flint Woman" Slayton will teach us about Bow Drill Fire Sticks and the flint-and-steel methods for creating fire - assuring us that what we learn from the past will make us wiser for the future.

Roger at KGNU Roger at KGNU Connections, Friday morning, March 28, 2008:
Closing the Food Gap Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty
Author Mark Winne was my in-studio guest that morning (this was at a time when world food prices, especially for
rice and other staples, were rising dramatically...)

On the KGNU site we wrote:

In preparation for the interview Roger undertook an unscientific sampling of grocery prices at two stores; one, a small store located in the heart of Denver's inner city and the other store (part of those famous chains!) out in the Lakewood suburb. Although not a nutritious sampling, Roger does eat this stuff (!) and provided the following price chart and comparisons after his purchase on Wednesday:

 

Grocery Item Inner City Price Suburb Price Percent Difference
Cheddar Cheese 8.0z/227g $3.53 $1.67 211%
Potato Chips 12.0z/340.2g $3.49 $2.50 40.0%
Fruit Pie 4.5z/128g $1.19 $1.00 19.0%
Vanilla Wafers 12.0z/340g $2.23 $2.19 1.8 %
Lemonade 64 Floz/1.89L $1.33 $1.69 -27.0%
Note: All items were the exact same weight/volume at both stores with the
cheddar cheese, potato chips, and fruit pie being the exact same brands...

Guest Comments:

By the time I created this second KGNU page I had interviewed well over 100 different guests - all of whom were very interesting but busy people. I usually try to call or email them, after the program, to let them know how it went, provide and audio link, and thank them for their time. Usually they call or write back with an additional thought or response so I'll try to post some of their comments here as time permits...

The Announcer's Test
