  • "Not designed as an audio program!"

    Overall

    What I have discovered about this publisher: World Wide Multi Media, is that their audiobook titles are actually the audio track from dvd productions.
    They are not programs designed for a listening only audience!!
    These are not audio programs derived from a written book, they are a free-flowing interviews from some type of tv show that has several, several points where the host says, "take a look at this (video) clip." Or the program references picture after picture without explaining what is being seen. Completely inappropriate as an audio feature. I could understand if it was adapted as a listening program, but it isn't at all. Infuriating. Rip off!!
    Save your money. If you really want it, look for it in dvd format because that's the only way you will understand these World Wide Multi Media audiobooks. Or if feel you need the audio experience watch it on youtube and close your eyes and see if you enjoy it. Guaranteed you'll want to open your eyes.

    For millennia man has looked towards the night sky in awe at the beauty and majesty of the Moon. It's silver glow has enticed and invited us. Then, in 1969, mankind finally managed to fulfill his dream, as NASA astronauts set foot upon our celestial partner. But ever since that momentous year, there have been raging arguments about whether we actually landed there or not.

    In this gripping presentation, Simon Lewis explains his own theory about the true nature of the Moon.

    "The best radio download"

    Overall

    A highly rec. radio show, especially for downloaders like me because it doesn"t outdate (unlike any NPR episode) and has a greater intellectual depth than most. (e.g. American Life). The major critiques you may read are that they mainly inverview book authors. This is true, but not for sales pitches, rather because these people have someting interesting to say and can add more depth and flavor to an interview than impromtu subjects or news related clips. All in all the best radio show for variety, human interest and with good depth. No not all episodes will interest you 8/10 are very good.

    One of the most consistently interesting shows I have ever had the pleasure to hear on a weekly basis. Each week Studio 360 takes a subject and looks at it from all different aspects of life. You learn all sorts of new types of ways that art is being done, and is surrounding you. While some you might not like?you will always be fascinated by.

    It's been more than forty years since thousands of American troops died fighting in the jungles of Vietnam. We visit our archives to bring back our award-winning show, “Stories from Third Med: Surviving a Jungle ER.” The documentary includes stories of the Navy's Third Medical Battalion, which served alongside the Third Marine Division. They were based near the DMZ, closest to the enemy in North Vietnam. Four decades later, the doctors and corpsmen recount the horror (and humor) they can never forget, and reflect on the forces that drive men to war in the first place.

Then, we hear a new commentary from children’s book writer and illustrator Daniel Pinkwater. And finally, we remember American jazz icon Gerald Wilson. He started his professional music career in 1939, playing trumpet for the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra. Over the course of his seven-decade career, Wilson had great success as a composer, arranger, bandleader, and jazz educator, writing music for and playing with jazz legends Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughn, Bobby Darin, and Ray Charles, to name a few. Gerald Wilson died Monday at the age of 96.
