It's not often non-animated news gets some air time here on Planet Zot, but then again it's not everyday that one of Planet Zot's own members not only happens to be a published writer, but is now also co-hosting a radio show!
That's right; Christy Condoleo, or Figowy if you might know her through her Planet Zot alias, is together with author J. D. Holiday reading story books three Saturdays a month on their exciting Blog Talk Radio Show entitled "It's Story Time, 'Gather Round".
In each show a different story and author will be highlighted and a picture book read. They read and entertain children and online audiences from all over the world, and at the end of each show they take calls from listeners. There is also a chatroom where those not wishing to speak live can type their questions.
And that's not all! From time to time they offer a chance to win a free book from one of the previous shows. So tune in and make sure to participate in their contests!
Their next broadcast will be on Saturday March 24, 2012 10AM est, 9AM cst, 8AM mst & 7AM pst, for the story book Snack Attack
by Marsha Casper Cook.
If you live in a different time zone of for any other reason can't manage to catch their shows live the two crafty authors archive
each show so you can check them out at later times. So far, they have four ready and waiting. You can also catch the show on demand on iTunes by researching "Its Story Time Gather Round" or on their blog at: http://itsstorytimeforkids.blogspot.com/
Christy is also available on Twitter
for those who wish to follow her there, while J. D. is on Facebook
Three cheers for Christy/Figowy!
