Program #VONK001. Recorded in New York, NY on February 23, 2003.
Kurt Vonnegut was a cultural icon. His observations on the destructiveness and dehumanization of the 20th century, distilled by his rich imagination and quirky view of events and their time frames, make for delightful reading and listening experiences. His irreverence is palpable, as is his disdain for Bush administration. Asked by a journalist for an idea for a really scary reality TV show, Vonnegut responded, "C Students From Yale. It would stand your hair on end." In his book "Hocus Pocus," published in 1990, he wrote, "Just because some of us can read and write and do a little math, that doesn't mean we deserve to conquer the Universe."
