Spillian Radio – Myth and Imagination Leigh Melander 2017-06-25T12:34:33+00:00
Spillian Radio… Two weekly radio showscelebrating myth and imagination. Thought-provoking, challenging, and sometimes just plain silly. Join us!
Myths are the stories that we tell and the stories that tell us.™ They are the metaphors that shape our imagination of the world around us. The ancient Greeks said that myths were the stories that were simultaneously most and least true. Far from just being a lie, myths pulse in the background of all of our lives — our selves, our families, our communities — we tell ourselves stories about all of them. Join host (and Spillian co-founder) Leigh Melander and her guests from around the world as we explore the powerful, evocative mythologies that inform who we are.
Tuesday. 9 AM ET on WIOX 91.3 FM & streaming world-wide Have a topic or guest idea you’d like to share? Let us know!
Also hosted by Spillian co-founder Leigh Melander, the Reveling Radio Hour is a variety entertainment exploring how to imagine past what you think is possible, a whole host of imaginary characters such as the Queen of Frivolity and her Aunties who stop by and make trouble… Each week, the Reveling Radio Dancers tap out a tableau of the week’s Just That Side of Crazy Big Idea — a thought, big or small, practical or philosophical, about what it takes to make wild ideas happen, based on the book that Leigh is writing about the adventures opening Spillian. Think part Prairie Home Companion, part Mountain Stage, part Ted Talk. With imaginary helpers.
Sunday. 5 PM ET on WIOX 91.3 FM & streaming world-wide Please share your own wild idea! What crazy thing would you like to make happen in the world? Let us know and we may highlight your dreams on the show.
These shows are an experiment in conjunction with WIOX Community Radio, exploring the intersections in between content and support in true community-based radio. Stay tuned! We will be sharing episodes as podcasts shortly.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at 800-811-3351. Cell service can be a bit spotty in the Catskills but folks up here are used to being helpful, so don’t hesitate to stop and ask if you get really turned around and your phone isn’t working.
If you drive up and are here in the winter, please note that we have a long gravel driveway. We plow and salt this regularly, but if you are at all concerned about not being able to make it up the hill, please call us at 800-811-3351 and we can arrange to have you park at the bottom of the hill and we can ferry you up and down in our monster plow truck, that doubles as a tank. It’s rarely a problem, but is always an option if you are nervous!
