Beam Me Up episode 371 humps along fairly well, so I guess there is some entertainment value!

After a quick musical interlude, it is time for episode 21 of  Jason Kahn’s Dark InSpectre series.  Inspector Jack continues to track an extremely dangerous killer.

I move on to Star Trek Triva.  I have a few of Mudd’s Women questions left so those and a few others make up this portion.

From the BMU blog Kallamis again comes through with his weekend review.  Covered are the newest crop of astronaut trainees, mold on the ISS? Mars had an oxygen rich armosphere?  Looking ahead to the newest Riddic movie and reviewers are going hard on the new Man of Steel movie, Logan’s Run movie still seems to be in limbo, Is China hiding the proof that aliens are real?!!!

And I end with the first part of Edward McKeown’s story In the Mourning.

Thanks for listening….

Well here we are!  Another week gone by and it is time for Beam me up episode 370.

I start this week I open with what I like to call a conversation but others would classify as a rant  ***sigh*** How about we split the difference and call it a conversation with passion?  No? Well anyway, a listener pointed me in the direction of a news article concerning recent additions to the passenger list of Virgin Galactic.

Next I was having some difficulty talking, I play a nice musical selection which leads to the the first story of the afternoon David Scholes “The Rise & Rise of Grey Power”.

I open the book on Star Trek Trivia.  This week – Mudd’s Women.

Now I meandered over to the Beam Me Up blog.  This week, articles about China’s space effort and Andromeda it seems has a plethora of black holes in its core. From the weekly rundown, Nuclear  spacecraft engines, It seems that some gullies On Mars were not made with water, news on NASA’s Sun Jammer solar sail as well as discussion on Lagrangian points.

Then it is time for the conclusion of “No Great Magic”.

That’s it for this week.  Enjoy!

Beam Me Up for another week! yaaaaaaaaa! Episode 368 is on the
bubble this week. This episode is taken up with two longish
story episodes and so there wasn’t much time for other material,
but I managed to squeeze in some good stuff. If you happened to
have listened to the radio broadcast, you might have noticed
that I cut the last story short to fit into the hour, it is
complete here in the podcast.

So, I start off with the closing song to an anime series Pet
Girl, which is proving to be a bit better than your average
teenage high school angst/harem anime series. The song: Prime
Number by Yume no Tsuzuki.

I then review the anime series Eden of the East which is mile
ahead of your average anime series.

Fritz Leiber’s No Great Magic chapter six is the first story.
This is being read by the Librivox readers which will give you a
change from my reading.

Hey Hey I manage to get in a couple of questions from Trek book
which is always fun.

I head back to the Beam Me Up blog to read about the Mars
Rodent.., Iron from meteoroid impacts, Live action Akira? Ain’t
happening!, Hunter Prey is reviewed by Kallamus which he really
liked as well.

And I wind up with Robert Lee Frazier’s s excellent story The
hunted. I am sure you will like it as much as I did.

That’s it for this week. Enjoy!

Another hour that just flies by.

I play the conclusion of David Scholes Trath: The Final intervention, just to make sure that I get in them in this week.

Next from the blog and Kallimus: Trouble with the ISS coolant  again, Ray Harryhousen has passed away at 92, Neil DeGrasse- Tyson has a web site that promotes his radio program Startalk and YouTube videos, there is a link on the wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com BMU blog.   A company has developed a  bulletin board that sends two messages, one to adults and one to children in a call to help reduce child abuse. Check out the blog for more information.

Earth Sky articles are next, the Milky-way, asteroids, temporary moons and Earth’s shadow are on tap.

I review the live action version of Death Note.

And finally, chapter 3 of No Great Magic by Fritz Leiber a  novelette from the sixties.

That is it! I hop you enjoy this week’s offering of Beam Me Up.

Wow does Beam Me Up episode 363 steam right along this week!

It was really a case of not being able to get a word in sideways because of all the stuff I had planned!

I start by well raving a bit about the new spaceport….but mediate it some with the closing song to season one’s A Scientific Rail-gun called “Dear My Love” I know, but it is a toe tappin tune that makes for a cool piece. I like the anime as well even though it incorporates all the standard High School short skirt big …..eyes, pantie fixation and odd powers. But something about the characters is captivating. Hey it is no High School of the Dead…but then few are.

Earth Sky this week covers Cassini’s work at Saturn’s moon Titan and who can get bored about any information about the mysterious and weird as the harmless sounding as a white dwarf?

Star trek trivia is next on the card. This week, Tribbles the open monologue, the premiere episode?

Kallimus again collects some of the top science and science-fiction news, which I read. Meteorites and space junk among others this week.

This week I though some golden age science fiction might be in order. No Great Magic ch.1 by Fritz Leiber from the Librivox project.

See? Like I said, little over an hour and it steams! Enjoy!
