Dear Mr Pinkwater,

There may well be a Snellville in Iowa, but the one I live near is just east of Atlanta GA. The Atlanta area NPR outlet is WABE-FM, continuously bragging that this is their 50th year of operation. I have e-mailed them to be a member and suggested they carry Chinwag Theatre, heard nothing as yet. I will have to ask where they got the name – from Alice?

Twas brillig and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe

Somewhere it is explained that a “wabe” is the plot of grass around a sundial.

Daniel replies:

Right, it's Spillville, Iowa. Anyway, what you need to do is get nine other wouldn't hurt if some of them were librarians and/or address themselves to the program director at WABE. Call him/her up on the phone as well as emailing--responding to the needs of listeners is an important part of the job. And here is the argument that makes program directors love Chinwag Theater: It's free. No charge to stations. If you don't get results tell us at .
