Social satire, sometimes comic. Let the corporate media fret about the Top 10 fashion blunders, TV bloopers, waist-trimming foods, tennis players, and the like. WE'LL read or play recordings of more oddball Top-10 lists:

(a) Quotations, 2000-2009; (b) Reasons to visit New Zealand; (c) High-level political sex scandals (Bill & Monica didn't even make the list!); and--this ya gotta hear--(4) Military combat rifles.

I add a few footnotes but--honest!--I didn't make ANY of this stuff up.
This program is a replay of NWN #101 (Feb. 2010).

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "benign neglect") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
This installment of New World Notes is available also on The Internet Archive (

At the end of the show I lie about the name of WWUH's station manager. It's actually John Ramsey, not Conrad. But I wanted to end on the song, "We Love You, Conrad." No composer--not even Jackson Browne--would give a song a title as dull as "We Love You, John." Sorry. Blame Mrs. Ramsey.

More details, photos, great links, & other good stuff on the show's Web site:
