Sulfur Springs

Sep 22, 2017

Bad news usually starts with a phone call.  However, the call that came to the home of retired Tamarack County (Minn.) Sheriff Cork O’Connor was different.  The look on Cork’s new wife Rainy’s face was chilling. She had received a message from her son, Peter, and though it was garbled it seemed to indicate that he has killed someone named Rodriguez.  It's the opening to William Kent Krueger's fifteenth novel Sulfur Springs in his Cork O’Connor series. If you’re a fan of C.J. Box’s Joe Pickett series or Craig Johnson’s Walt Longmire books, then the St. Paul, Minn.

The Cuban Affair

Sep 22, 2017

This time around it's a tropical caper for Nelson DeMille. The legendary New York Times bestselling author sets his just released suspense novel-- The Cuban Affair-- on the exotic but troubled island 90 miles from Key West's shores.  DeMille introduces readers to Daniel Graham "Mac" MacCormick, a provocative new character.  At age 35, Mac seems to have a pretty good life.

Jacques Offenbach
BBC

Although we'll be running a few decades ahead of Charles Dickens, we have A Tale of Two Cities of our own this week as we look at musical entertainment in Paris and London in the mid- to late-19th century with a program featuring music of Gilbert & Sullivan and Jacques Offenbach. The best of times? The worst of times? You decide as we check out the light opera scene in the French and English music halls.

Experience the excitement of answering WFIT phones as our listeners call in pledges to support Public Radio on the Space Coast.
