Slightly experimental column this week (ie: I was short on time again).
Very, very short descriptions of the stories - some of which might actually
be related to what is airing this week. Let's see how it works.

Who content, can be heard with Windows Media Player. Use the link from
http://www.scifiradioguy.com/ to a live webstream, or if that is down use
the link from WSBR's website. I believe WBYU has a webstream (will have to
check), so there should still be two online places to hear the show come
