Radio waves: "Outside" show 3

| 8 Comments | No TrackBacks

I remembered to document "Outside" show history and took a shot of our first guest, Phil Willink (right), before recording the second radio show.


That's me on the left. I had the camera along when Joel Greenberg and I recorded our pilot, which ended up being show 1, but I got so wound up that I forgot to have a photo taken.

But before show 2, when Willink guested and talked about Asian carp, I had an office staffer snap a photo. I think I will try to do that from now on.

Willink, from the fish division at The Field Museum, is back and joins us on a wide-ranging discussion on fish and water for show No. 3 for "Outside" at 4:30 p.m. today on WKCC-FM (91.1).

"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC, a start-up public radio station in Kankakee.

This show fits perfectly in our general aim: filtering modern outdoors through our experience, then putting it in a historical context. In this case, there is also the broader context of Willink's world-wide experience with fish and water.

The live listening area is basically framed by I-80, Manhattan, near Dwight, Watseka and Cedar Lake, Ind. Click here to see the coverage map.

There is a Facebook page for Outsiide with Dale Bowman and Joel Greenberg.

I feel like we settle into more of a comfort zone on this broadcast, show No. 3 of "Outside.".

Some folks have a face for radio.

Truer words have rarely been spoken. Though don't you think I am kind of ruggedly handsome in an outdoorsy sort of way. Oh, I must be delusional after that Bears game.

Just a suggestion - can you post these shows on You Tube so everyone can hear them 24/7? Thanks.

I do not know. I am not sure the advantage, other than not having to deal with iTunes. You can download shows at will at Mike Savage has been doing a good job of posting them promptly so far. If I remember, I will discuss it with him. Actually, it might be interesting to do one to post on YouTube, just for the sense of it.


when I say that i'm handsomely rugged in an outdoors sort of way, they tell me that staning in cold rivers in cold weather has obviously affected my judgement. Maybe all your rambling with Storm has similarly affected yours. Ask your wife what she thinks.

Highly interesting and entertaining shows Mr. Bowman. Was having difficulty with I-Tunes, but I eventually got to hear all three. Keep up the good work!

I've got two of Joel Greenbergs books, "A Natural History of The Chicago Region", and, "A Birder's Guide to the Chicago Region". I'd love to hear the radio show!

I can't receive the radio signal so I tried to listen to the podcast. I can't get the podcast either.

Following the instructions on WKCC website I click on the podcast link, get the loading page, I-tunes loads, but there is no show. Just the regular I-tunes opening shopping screen.

So I did a search on I-tunes for the podcast. I get zero results on keywords "Outside", "WKCC", "Dale Bowman", "Joel Greenberg"... I also searched I-tunes U, same result.

Gave up in frustration. There's got to be a better way!


It took me twice to figure it out, but I would first make sure that iTunes is properly downloaded. Then you have to look for the downloads from WKCC. I would start there.
