During the recording of their latest full-length album, Missionaries and Impostors, Starving in the Belly of the Whale produced several songs that didn't quite fit the theme of that release.  Those three songs had a theme of their own and form the band's new 7 inch EP, 4-13, which is being released in honor of Record Store Day 2015.  Ricky Terrell and Lacey Terrell visited the WYSO studios to preview the EP on Kaleidoscope and performed new versions of some older songs live on Kaleidoscope.

Aimee Noel reads her poem, "I Need To Tell You About The Trees."

David Lee Garrison reads Janet Ladrach's poem, "The Farmer's Wife."

If I had ever read any crime novels or mysteries prior to 1994 I cannot recall what they would have been. No Sherlock Holmes. No Agatha Christie. I had not even discovered Ed McBain yet. Then I started interviewing authors on the radio. That has changed everything. I started reading crime novels and mysteries and thrillers and now I'm completely hooked.  They are like potato chips. I cannot stop after just one. I have to keep reading them.
