I start the program with a list I love (The Darwin Award) and Joe helped light the fire. Here we are looking at a 20 year study of the award and results.
How about a cut by Patti Smith singing an ode to the passing of the Aqua Aqua Team Hunger Force called Aqua Team Dream?
The first story for the afternoon “A Bright Future” by Jamie Lackey. A good robot story with one of the best realizations of city so sleazy and filthy that you will want to bathe afterwards!
From the blog:
bad news from SyFy
The ending story, “The Oricle is Never Wrong” by Jacey Bedford
Is brainwashing torture? Well it certainly seems that way in Himanshu Goel’s futuristic tale Brainwashing 101
I revisit Bad Dreams again with a lot of local listeners missing the first broadcast, no loss, stories by Dave Scholes are like fine wine “even better with age”
From the blog: a couple of great video sound tracks, really strange Mars picks, Planes that boggle the imagination and conversation points from yours truly.
news from Ed McKeown, a new book “My Outcast State” Now on Amazon.com
welcome to Beam Me Up, episode 449.
This week I gripe about the lack real news or at least news that isn’t focused on death and depravity!
I take a break and play “Luna Industries” theme music for the movie “Moon”.
From there I found an article describing the sling shot effect that the larger planets have on smaller craft.
The Keplier space telescope has made a startling new discovery.
Finally, David Scholes’ story “Bad Dreams” finishes out the week.
Posted in Podcast by beamupadmin| Comments Off on Beam Me Up #449 Featuring a new story from David Scholes
This week I do a live gig! Mainly for the extra time to get the story “A Matter of Character” by Ed McKeown, ready. It still had glitches, but not so bad.
Next, from the blog Kallimus says goodby for now.
David Scholes tells us that his newest book is on Amazon.
NASA is showing great interest in Shackleton’s crater.
The Star Trek merch store has a new item that I am sure all Trekies would love to add to their collections.
I review Jupiter acceding.
Lastly: I found an article that speculated on China’s capabilities of landing a man on the moon.
Yep, Episode 447 of Beam Me Up is now available.
Articles from the blog here, stories include the conclusion of the English Dead and
In Plain Sight episode 34.
Plus Herb sets in to add to the mayhem.
Welcome to Beam Me Up episode 446.
This week I start with a slightly (ok I will admit it….off the wall) musical selection that started as a bet with Joe, a frequent listener. We shall see if I at least captured the spirit….
Next I touch lightly on number bases (like we use a base 10 system, computers use base 1 and ultimately base 8 for bits and bytes) followed by a review of the movie Interstellar. A movie with an (do I dare???) interstellar cast. I know, groan…..
Then I traveled onto Mr. Stanger’s excellent story The English Dead. I was hoping to get the rest of the story done but ran out of time, so we shall include it in 447.
The Plus side is that there were a couple of minutes I could utilize for an additional blog entry, so…..
I saw a short film on Barycentric Systems, which are how primary and satellite systems behave.
I hope that some of these articles intrigues you.

Beam Me Up 445 moves along pretty rapid this week.
First I manage to way lay Nelson of New Farmer Films once again. This week we spend time talking about one of the most talented writers of the previous century.
Next a quick visit to the blog to see what is new.
Seem Supergirl is final a go for the fall season. A flash from the pas to see how the iconic Dr. Who theme song was created. Great pics taken by Solar Winds scientists of the March Total Eclipse. The Internet archive just released 2400 old ms-dos games! and more.
Check out the blog at wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com
Finally Part three of the quite literal cliff hanger, The English Dead by Vaughn Stanger.
Hi, welcome to episode 444 of Beam Me Up After opening, I play a fairly smooth and quiet piece of anime music leading up to the 25th anniversary of Hubble with just a few discussion points concerning Hubble as one of the single greatest research tool of the 20th century.
From the blog a short film on the paradoxes of time travel which proves very funny, New Horizons nears to it flyby of Pluto, I comment on the ultimate failure of Alton Musk’s Falcon booster, Carole sent me an article on electric space craft engine.
Kallimus sends in an article about a new cable program hosted by Neal DeGrasse which sounds fascinating!
There are a few more articles..
Lastly is The English Dead by Vaughan Stanger part two.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Hello and welcome to Beam Me Up episode 443.
This week is a treat, a new story from David Scholes and a fascinating tale from a new writer to BMU Vaughan Stanger.
But first, after the opening monologue I play the opening music to El: called Friendship.
The next order of business is the first story of the afternoon called “Living on Compressed Time” by David Scholes.
After which I skip over to the Beam Me Up Blog where Kallimus reviews the Dare Devil release, I do the Riddick straight to disk “Dark Fury” a piece on how many stars might be visible vs how many there really are.
Which leads us to the final story for the afternoon from new writer Vaughan Stanger called the English Dead.
Hi and welcome to this week’s episode of Beam Me Up. This is episode 442.
Area of discussion this episode is quantum mechanic’s proofs and the many worlds conjecture as a results of one area of quantum “proofs”
I start this episode with a musical name “The Right Time” which was the closing theme for the anime series Paraclete.
The first story this afternoon is episode 34 of Jason Kahn’s “In Plain Sight”
From there, I head it over to the blog for Beam Me Up. This episode starts with the quantum many worlds idea, which is bizarre enough on it’s own right, but when combined with a mathematical proof system, its then that things get well, weird.
I talk for a moment about the “proof of concept” film “Sundays” which of its own right is a wicked powerful as well as a compilation of all that made the sci fi adventure flick entertaining.
There is now mounting proof that super-nova are indeed the things planets are made of. A lot of them!
I found an app that shows all the cyber – well – attack activity around the world and how much is pointed straight at the USA! Not just government but private institutions as well!
and the final story this afternoon is from David Scholes called Deep Web. A strange and weird story about very very deep web sites.
And That is it for episode 442! Enjoy!
