On the Air: Worship, Debate
Radio listeners craving sustenance from Stanford now have two new shows to choose from, one reverent and the other, well, not so much.
Reviving a tradition that began in the 1940s and continued until 1988, the Sunday morning University public worship can be heard at 11:30 a.m. on Stanford’s own KZSU 90.1 FM. It is also streamed over the Internet at the same time: kzsulive.stanford.edu. Most weeks the service is a Christian ecumenical one; a multifaith service is held once a month.
Meanwhile, philosophy professors John Perry and Kenneth Taylor’s departmental debates have become the stuff of not-quite-prime time. “Philosophy Talk” (Farm Report, March/April 2002), a one-hour show that winks at National Public Radio’s popular “Car Talk,” can be heard on San Francisco’s KALW 91.7 FM (or online at www.kalw.org) at noon on Tuesdays and on Oregon Public Broadcasting at 8 p.m. Thursdays. The profs’ approach to airtime? Cultural relevance. Controversy. And lots of unscripted asides.
