About and Contact
My name is Marco Angelo McClean. Memo Of The Air – Good Night Radio is a radio show on KNYO (107.7fm) in Fort Bragg, California*. On Friday nights from 9pm (California time) until very late (usually about 4am) I read local writing and stories and articles from the web and from books and magazines. And I play old music and old-time radio drama from my collection and new music that catches my ear.
Email me stories and poems you write and I’ll read them on the very next Memo of the Air. My email address is memoNOSPAM@mcn.org (remove NOSPAM for the address to work). There’s no set subject and no hard rule about a piece’s length, though I might split a very long piece into several parts over several shows. Also, if you tell me in your email about what time you want me to read your work, I’ll try to remember to read it then so you can be ready to hear it.
I’m certain that the best way to learn to write is to write for an audience and sit in that audience and listen to someone else read what you wrote. You hear immediately what to change and how to express yourself better. Try it and see.
This weblog is partly about my radio show and partly a place to post links to things that are worthwhile but that don’t necessarily translate well to radio. I find them mostly via the websites in the blogroll column to your right.
*105.1fm KMEC Ukiah has just joined the small but growing number of radio stations to use my show in real time by grabbing the stream. KMEC jumps on the show in progress at midnight and jumps off at 3am. If you have a radio station, small or large, and you’d like to do something like that, please let me know.
