Subject:        "About Shakespeare" Radio Series

The "About Shakespeare" radio series is being rebroadcast on KBYU-FM
over the next few weeks.  Some of you have heard it already; I think all
of you would be pleased by the quality of the programs, each of which
lasts 30 minutes.  (I can affirm the quality of most of the broadcasts
but can't vouch for two of them, which feature me.)  You can listen via
the Internet at http://kbyufm.org/streaming/

The discussions are broadcast every Thursday evening at 9:00pm MDT
(that-just to help everyone with the math-would be 11pm EDT, 10pm CDT,
and 8pm PDT).
