    Having lived part time in Brooklyn for the past several years, Jacob Scheier's new poems are solidly rooted in Jewish New York life and examine love, loss, history, identity, protest, and popular culture. At the heart of Letter from Brooklyn is the notion that people understand who they are by where they have been. Everything is at once political and poetic, inseparable from intimate experience and personal heartbreak. Scheier moves from the inner worlds of grief and love to form a poetic dialectic between the familial and the historical. Whether eating in a knish restaurant on the Lower East Side or falling in and then out of love with the Brooklyn Bridge, or even being startled while biking down a prairie road, with depth and originality Scheier confronts the question of where home is and what it means amid private and public loss.

    "Around Dodge City and in the territory out West, there's just one way to handle the killers and the spoilers and that's with a U.S. Marshal and the smell of … GUNSMOKE!" Radio westerns were aimed at kids until 1952 when Gunsmoke hit the radio airwaves. Produced for adult listeners, the stories were grim, the deaths brutal and life on the plains was harsh. Radio audiences had never heard anything like Gunsmoke and they made it the #1 western on radio. It soon made a successful transition to television becoming the longest-running dramatic series in TV history. Join William Conrad (U.S. Marshal Matt Dillon), Parley Baer (Deputy Chester Proudfoot), Georgia Ellis (Kitty Russell) and Howard McNear (Doc Adams) in the continuing "story of the violence that moved west with young America and the story of a man who moved with it, Matt Dillon, United States Marshal."

    For our Renaissance Poets we start with the coming to the throne of Henry 8th in 1519.  From then until its end, with the crumbling of the English Republic under Cromwell, in 1659 these poets capture a time when the World as they knew it then underwent tumultuous change.  Within their ranks were Spenser, Donne, Milton, Shakespeare, Sidney, Jonson, Marvell, Drayton.  It is a list rich and sumptuous, long and gloried.  In these volumes we bring all these poets and others together to illustrate this poetical canon.

    Volume 8 in Calling All Cars, the classic radio show! “Crime does not pay...” -- four words that quickly sum up “Calling All Cars,” a popular crime drama heard from 1933 to 1939. One of radio’s earliest and most durable police procedural shows, the series’ stark and gritty realism is strongly reminiscent of Warner Brothers gangster films of the 1930s - particularly with the presence of real-life LAPD dispatcher Jesse Rosenquist, whose unique voice and name became the show’s trademark; Rosenquist contributed to the American lexicon both the program’s title and the now time-honored phrase “that is all”. None of the actors on the series ever received on-air credit, but sharp-eared radio fans can hear the likes of Elvia Allman, Jackson Beck, Charles Bickford, Gale Gordon, John Gibson, Richard LeGrand, and Hanley Stafford.
