This week's Hour of the Wolf will be a three-hour special (thanks to Robert Knight and Earthwatch!) talking about the history of Doctor Who in anticipation of Saturday's worldwide simulcast BBC event. Joining host Jim Freund will be Carol Pinchefsky, who has covered Doctor Who extensively for, among other places, Forbes; Whovian and writer James Ryan; and Keith DeCandido, writer, raconteur and author of (legitimate) Doctor Who stories.

We may have some fiction and possibly recorded interviews with the program's movers and shakers, and certainly a LOT of fun -- and your phone calls.

Hour of the Wolf is broadcast live over WBAI 99.5 FM New York and streams over http://wbai.org/playernew.html and several apps, such as TuneIn. The festivities begin Wednesday night/Thursday morning from midnight to 3 a.m. ET. Given your location, you may have to deal with wibbley-wobbley effects of day and time zones. Using your TARDIS (or if you don't have one handy, your browser), you can hear the show streamed on-demand for two weeks after broadcast.

R.I.P. Fred Pohl. He was on my first solo live radio show about 1971, along with Lester Del Rey and Isaac Asimov.  It was Fred who made me sound good -- he was quite the talk show pro thanks to being a regular on Long John Nebel's show.

We worked together on my radio adaptation of his Novella  of "The Gold at the Starbow's End," and had me do some reading for him when he was editor at Bantam Books. He also tried to introduce me to (what he he considered" the delights of retsina. (It didn't take.)

As a writer and editor, little needs to be said by me at this point. He was one of the greats, both as a soloist and collaborator, especially with the likes of Jack Williamson and C.M. Kornbluth. His Gateway novels will always rank among the best, and his short stories were superb. "The Day After the Day the Martians Came" showed an ever-evolving writer who refused to keep his mind in the pulp or digest era -- He could write New Wave with the vest of them, and then continue to adapt and even move ahead with the avant-garde.

Fred was a lovely man and a good friend. Born in Brooklyn, he lived in in Red Bank when I worked with him. I missed him when he moved out of the NY area and now I'll miss him even more.

Tonight from Midnight to 3 AM I'll present an all-time favorite broadcast, "The Council of Elrond" read by the superb Baird Searles (who got the permission directly from Tolkien) and produced by myself, Margot Adler and Dave Marx. Our special effects are better than Peter Jackson's, since we use YOUR mind's eye! We'll also hear some of the soundtrack to The Hobbit.

It doesn't come free however -- this is part of WBAI's emergency fund drive to make up for time lost pitching and monies spent as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Pledge and enjoy!

That's starting at Midnight (Weds night/Thurs morning) over WBAI Radio 99.5 FM in NYC, and http:/stream.wbai.org

Tonight, Hour of the Wolf returns from it's Brigadoon-ish existence during WBAI fund drives for part 1 of our annual Samhain Spectacular.  Tonight, music appropriate to the holiday and a recorded sermon from Margot Adler (NPR, Drawing Down the Moon etc.) on vampires.

Next week, Shottle Bop by Theodore Sturgeon.

That Wednesday night / Thursday morning at 1:30 New York time at http://stream.wbai.org
