From: Todd Mason ( Todd.Mason@tvguide.com)
Date: 18 Jun 2003

The times below refer to the rollout on WHYY-FM in Philadelphia. www.whyy.org Orwell is at least peripherally of interest here, I'd suggest...and "Packer" and Highsmith inarguably...

THE TODD MUNDT SHOW 1-2PM The legacy of writer George Orwell. George Orwell sits up there in the pantheon of 20th century writers. His wife helped see to that, maintaining George's copyrights and legacy after his death. But she was pilloried in the process. Sonia Orwell, villainess or heroine?

TALK OF THE NATION 2-3PM A daily call-in show with host Neal Conan tackling today's important issues. Call 1-800-989-TALK (1-800-989-8255) to join in the conversation.

FRESH AIR with Terry Gross 3-4PM Marijane Meaker and Patricia Highsmith had both written lesbian novels under pen names, when they met in the fifties. Highsmith was best known for her novels, "Strangers on a Train" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley." Their 1950's romance is the subject of Meaker's new memoir. We'll talk with Marijane Meaker. (Rebroadcast at 7PM) For tapes and transcripts of Fresh Air, call Toll-Free 1-877-21-FRESH (1-877-213-7374).
