From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

[a] Putting it together RF
So here we go again. We continue to fly under the radar for the next few weeks, but it is not as though we want no audience at all. If you have been tuning into RSQ for the last few years (we've been at it for four of 'em already), you have read a lot of...stuff. Well, now you can listen (too...and soon you'll be able to watch, as well, but that is another story for another time). 

The Round and Square Show begins on Wednesday, February 18, and "we" will figure it all out from there. It broadcasts on WBCR 90.3 in Beloit, Wisconsin. It is uncertain when podcasts will be available, since there are at least a few legalities to consider before we can get 'er done.

Even today (2/25/2015), you can listen online from 1-3 p.m. CST (GMT -5).

Here is the idea behind it a nutshell (a longer version can be found in the introduction to this RSQ series). For fourteen years, a talented young man named Garrison Keillor hosted Minnesota Public Radio's morning show on KSJN 91.1 in Minneapolis/St. Paul. My father loved the show, and talked about it almost every evening at dinner. Even as a wee lad, I vaguely knew about Keillor's show (which is only distantly related to A Prairie Home Companion).

Although KSJN's morning show began in 1969, it was not until the early 1980s (when Keillor's role in it was almost over) that I started paying attention. But even the few dozen months I heard changed my life. If I can channel (so to speak) even a little of what Garrison Keillor did on that morning show between 1969 and 1983, Round and Square will "click" for even more people around the world.

It's another big "classical" day on The Round and Square Show, and that has an intensely autobiographical dimension, as "we'll" see. There will be plenty of classical, folk, and country as we proceed. 

Stay tuned.
