Amid Amidi at the Cartoon Brew presents a true rarity: a 1947 unsold half-hour recording for a children’s radio show, “Sally in Hollywoodland”. Recorded on June 3, 1947, the pilot is about a little girl who falls asleep and dreams herself into an adventure with Walter Lantz’s famous Hollywood animal cartoon characters.
This episode stars Woody Woodpecker (voice of Theodore Von Eltz), Andy Panda (Sarah Brenner), Oswald Rabbit (June Foray), Wilbur Wolf (Billy Bletcher, who was the Big Bad Wolf in Disney’s 1933 Silly Symphony), and Wally Walrus (Herb Lytton). Amidi says that the recording was discovered by Randy Riddle, and that notes show that if the pilot had sold, Sally would have continued to have adventures with the Lantz characters, not other studios’.
Jeff Goode is back in action in the Furry fandom again. Jeff, who is known for his series Jake Long: American Dragon and his anthro play The Eight: Reindeer Monologues, is coming out with a new play for the fandom. Fursona Non Grata will be offered as a radio play and will premiere to the fandom at Wild Nights in Oklahoma’s Robber’s Cave State Park, April 25-29 2013.
Colin writes for the Hartford Courant, which recently reported on fursuit-related library rules. Much of the conversation focused on the appeal and transformative power of fursuits, but ponies, FurFright, antipathy against furries and the Ursa Major Awards were also brought up.
An "ex-furry" caller, Reuben, raised the risks to minors from sexual predators at conventions, but the host and guests noted that non-furry events also had a degree of 'hooking-up', while Chiaroscuro brought up the age distribution and security presence at furry events.
The eight-minute segment focused on the motivations for fursuiting, and featured interviews with Woody, Atara, Ford Shepherd and convention chair Takaza J. Wolf. Other topics included whether furry was a fetish, and the convention charity, which left with over $18,500 (video).
So a huge part of it is this kind of kid-like, unbridled joy. [...] The whole thing felt like good clean fun ... there's an overall air of [...] innocence, inclusiveness, belonging ...
Jason said he found the fandom by accident, stumbling across WikiFur while looking up Japanese comic books. MFF attracted 2600 fans this year, including 574 parade fursuiters.
Furry radio listeners might want to tune in to Your Time with Kim Iverson at 9PM Eastern tonight for a one-hour segment on furries, including a few minutes with Dr. Samuel Conway (Uncle Kage) on the topics of furry conventions and the fandom in general.
The syndicated talk radio show plays to a mostly adult-female demographic, and is broadcast by stations across the U.S., including Austin, Buffalo, Denver, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Memphis, Norfolk, Portland and Wichita.
French-speaking Canadian furs got their turn in the limelight earlier this year with an interview (translation) of Paws, Firebreath, Big Bad Bear and Feli in the Montreal Campus newspaper, which serves the Université du Québec à Montréal.
The article led to a sixteen-minute radio interview of Beekin, Firebreath and Ailé the Dragon, broadcast on CBC's French-language radio network Première Chaîne on 16 February (scroll to "Audio-vidéo"; starts at 0:50). [dronon/furrymedia]
Update: A transcription of the radio broadcast is now available thanks to Firebreath.
The caller, "Cly" [spelling uncertain], said the community includes therians (who "believe that their spirits used to be animals, and thus they keep acting like animals"), "normal" furries ("people who pick an animal who they really like and act like it") and fursuiters. She claimed to be all three.
Not something particularly noticeable when you’re blowing up buses, pretending to be an East European called Niko; but talk radio channel WKTT (available in most vehicles) features a delightful chap known as Richard Bastion, who’s show intro mentions a teensy bit about the furries we all know and love.
Caller: There’s these sick degenerate folks known as furries. They dress up in this cute little bunny suit with holes cut in them for penises to stick out and they pound each others heinies makin’ weird ass animal noises.
Richard Bastion: Did you hear what public television has brought to you America? Do you hear what’s happened to the children? Heinie pounding!

Those who attended ConFurences in the 1990s might remember the NitroCoon radio show presentations - an anthro sci-fi tale. The fur behind NitroCoon was Avi Melman. For years Avi hoped to bring NitroCoon to cartoons and was pitching it around Hollywood.
Now Avi has his own animation studio! In this interview Avi talks about his first animated series which features werewolves.
The BBC has announced that they're going to air the last three books in the five part HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy as radio plays! Further information below.
