  1. Love the new music. The revamping of the show is also great. I think opening it up to outside the genre or including other genres is good as long as the story is good. And that is the thing right, a good story.

  2. Lou Sytsma (sit - sma) says

    The expansion out of genre material is a solid idea. Michael S. pass along some rec's on good nonfiction to read. You can hear the energy level has risen across the board. Everyone sounds revitalized! Excellent!

    Keep up the good work guys.

  3. I'm not as spastic about the music as Micheal was but I am glad to say goodby to the old themesong. Not that it was bad but it had certainly run it's course.

    I'm fear change so I'm not completely down with the expansion of the content but I'm not opposed to it either. I'd suggest you start with genres that tend to cross with SF a lot such as mystery and horror.

  4. Lou - Thanks for the kind words. I'll be sure to have Michael S pop in here and throw around his input. We don't want to shock him so we've been easing him into things. 😉

    BrenBart - I don't think we're going to be doing RADICAL changes but we will be doing some changes and as Mike M. stated, we are really partial to SF and Fantasy and that will still be the main thrust but it is about time we opened our doors to other genres even if it's just cross-genre books.

    Thanks to everyone who is giving us a listen!

  5. See I misse the original comment from WNDRwolf! My bad, I blame my small screen size!! Honest!

    WNDR - Thanks for also chiming in also. I think that a good story is what it is all about to us. I mean who really wants to put the time in on a book only to find that it's not really that good of a story? I don't. I have to really ration how I spend my free time and I don't want to waste it.

  6. I knew changes were coming when Michel got his big box of music cds, but I'm glad the dragon's roar was kept. I think opening things up in any direction is good as long as there some coherent thought to it. A little to early in the morning to be winging it.
