The Paper Machete Radio Magazine: The No-Theme Week

There's no theme for this week's radio magazine, but no riff raff either. Tim Baltz is on all things baseball and all things Schaumburg, laying down the relationship between the Schaumburg Flyers and the Schaumburg Boomers. Lacy Campbell tells us about the three-for-the-price-of-one women granted this year's Nobel Prize. Marisa Wegrzyn and Emily Schwartz perform an original horror radio play. And there's music from Josh and the Empty Pockets. As usual, if you can hear us, this magazine is LIVE. Download at iTunes here, or listen below.

At this Saturday's SPOOKY show at the Horseshoe, Josh Zagoren is our Guest Host, but he won't just be channeling Chad the Bird; instead, he'll be more old timey radio hosty. We'll also be joined by Mike Lehrer of the Second City e.t.c., Eric and Andy of Reviews you Can Iews, and jack-of-all-trades Adam Guerino. With music from Fatbook. Check The Paper Machete's site for the updates on this line-up as the week goes on.
