Show 090: Radiation Squirm – Playlist and Archived Stream


35 Years ago on March 28th, a partial nuclear meltdown occurred in one of the two Three Mile Island nuclear reactors. Pennsylvania Governor Dick Thornburgh recommended that pregnant women and young children evacuate the area.   Listen Up! chats with Tom Quinn of the blog Tapewrecks . Tapewrecks  has compiled a collection of music relating to the incident and we will hear some of that music and talk about how and why this project came about. 

Follow the Listen Up! Blog and/or “like” the show on Facebook . Both serve as an addendum and a means to interact with the program.
