This week, the Listening Lounge is "loud, fast and firing on all cylinders." I stole that line directly from Barrett Golding, the independent producer of Engines, part of his 29-minute "The Plan" series. In Engines, Golding focuses on fast cars that excite people, including Flamin' Betty Berkland, a 63-year-old grandmother who races Hemi engines. In the first piece on the show, she talks about the kind of car one wants to be driving when one crashs a car and how she got her nickname (something about an engine on fire). Other pieces on the show are from the very funny Amy Borkowsky and an excerpt from Hog Heaven, something connected to Harley-Davidsons, no doubt.
