University of Hartford

When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.

The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For over 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.

New World Notes - Anerican Sex and Sexuality (The Sorrow and the Pity)

08/07/2012 12:00
08/07/2012 12:30

 

This week on New World Notes: radio program #231, August 7, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., host Kenneth Dowst replays another of the earliest installments of New World Notes: #11, from April 2008.

With jaundiced eye and sometimes tongue in cheek, we survey the sad state of sex and sexuality in the US. Highlights include Helen Gurley Brown's 1963 advice to married men on how to conduct an affair, Pat McCormick's parody of a TV game show exposing adulterers, an article on Eliot Spitzer (the New York Governor who resigned following news exposure that he patronized prostitutes), and a monologue by Kenneth Dowst.

Music added: Chris Williamson, "Dream Child"; P.D.Q. Bach, Round: "Nellie is a Nice Girl".

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "bad influence") of WWUH-FM, a community service of the University of Hartford.

You can listen to any installment of New World Notes online or else download it (as an mp3 audio file) for later listening. The show is archived at both A-Infos Radio Project and (from #90 onwards) the Internet Archive. Either link should get you a reverse-chronological listing of available installments. Or browse the show's Web site: Each installment has a page; each page has links to the recorded audio; and a handy table of contents will quickly find the installment you want.

Series overview: Political and social commentary in a variety of genres. Exploring the gap between what we want--and what they're trying to make us settle for.

Coming soon: August 14 -- Radio Great Jean Shepherd
