Here we go with another installment of Beam Me Up. This is episode 396.
The first thing I play today is a track off John Aneilo’s newest album Walk the Fire, and wow, does he have a winner here. The cut I play is “The Ferryman” and this song hits you where you live.
Next is a short piece called “The Loaner” Dave Rigby.
I spend a bit of time on Twilight zone trivia
Then from the Beam Me Up blog: Opportunity Rover celebrates it’s 10th anniversary on Mars this year. The Sun may not bake the Earth into a cinder as soon as we thought…….How was the Milky Way galaxy formed? I close this week with episode 24 of “The Dark Inspectre Series” by Jason Kahn.
All in all, a good program this week. I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for listening.

Well the Beam Me Up program made it to 395 without much of a hitch…But no matter what.. Ha!
This week, the show seems to bounce along and made a pretty fair showing if I do say so myself…..
After my opening comments I start off with a piece of fine pop rock that is the closing theme to Bubblegum Chrisis. Which I follow up with the conclusion to Doug Turnbull’s A Wunderous Gift.
Next I find some excellent Twilight Zone trivia.
From the blog, Using Water to burn solid waste. In the 60s the Navy wanted an Iron Man exo-skeleton and you will never guess who they asked! Orbital Sciences Cygnus delivery vehicle successfully delivered it’s cargo to ISS. Virgin’s suborbital spacecraft has had a successful second burn. NASA shows off concept artwork of the SLS heavy lifting rocket. NASA wants to get the go ahead for visiting one of the weirdest asteriods in the belt.
The final story of the afternoon is Nancy Fulda’s All or nothing.

Welcome to another weekend with Beam Me Up, this week, episode 394.
Getting right down to the nitty gritty, 394’s stories are Trathh: Odinforce by David Scholes, which is the first story for the afternoon and A wondrous Gift pt3 by Doug Turnbull.
First after a few minor opening comments, I play Help! by Ayana Taketatsu.
I got to watch the live action Wolverine that seemed to have brought mixed reviews but if you ever saw the anime Wolverine you will get where a lot of this movie came from.
Then it is the first story David Scholes Trathh: Odinforce
I spend a few moments on the Beam Me Up Blog where we find that dogs have a poopin preference…and it is not where they prefer to do their duty but something much stranger!
Next NASA’s NuStar observatory’s latest photo, has to been seen to be appreciated…it is truly spectacular!
Finally, the ISS gets an reprieve. Funding now until the 2021 deadline.
And then on to the final story, part 3 of Doug Turnbull’s A wondrous Gift.
That’s it for another week. Enjoy!

And it is Beam Me Up for another week. This is episode 393 and I think you may just enjoy the mix.
First off, after my opening comments, I read Kallimus’ comments of things that happened in 2013….he is really funny and costic in major servings this week.
Next, as a way to vent some of the pressure Kallimus built up, I play the opening theme song to Excel Saga…quite a catchy tune, if I must say.
The first story this week is a “Flash From The Past” Robert Shea’s The Helpful Robots, and this story holds up really well in the test of time. I think you might agree.
News from the blog this week….. it would seem that time travelers don’t really like Facebook….lol….next a really interesting DIY from Hack A Day using ultra sound to elevate objects…it really is fascinating, It would seem that Russia wants to launch a mission to land a craft on the surface of Jupiter’s moon Ganymede. NASA’s LRO managed to snap a pic of China’s Chang’e lander and rover! And NASA is “concerned” about the worsening space junk….and the Mars Express Orbiter managed to get and extremely close flyby of Phobos.
And Finally I play part 2 of Doug Turnbull’s a Wondrous Gift.
