Men In Charge RadioAugust: Men In Charge

In August 2014, Program Director Verne Windham will try something a little different in the time that Selected Shorts generally airs. Longtime volunteer producer Tony Flinn and co-host Kevin Decker, both faculty at Eastern Washington University, have spent the past year or so working up a show that celebrates the sexes in a sometimes non-sequiter way.

"Men In Charge is short segments, interspersed with music, that indicate that the hosts have no clue what's going on," says Flinn as he notices Decker nodding silently. The two had the classic comedy duo Bob and Ray on the mind when creating their program: a variety of characters (although in this case, most are voiced by people culled from the SPR or EWU crowd), and 'sponsorships' from such corporate ideas such as "Sandpaper" and "Trampolines -- Idaho's #1 Babysitter."

The duo's Facebook page is Men In Charge Radio.

Selected Shorts will return in September.

Tune in to fiction. Each week on Selected Shorts, great actors from stage, screen and television bring short stories to life.
