On our June 1 show, we'll air two stories by Canadian producers: A Map of the Sea (Chris Brookes) and Colonel's Daughter (Makiko Ishihara). The first story documents the decline of a Newfoundland town by Chris Brookes, a really fantastic producer who uses sound in unusual ways. The second story is a Japanese-Canadian woman's story about her strident father and her relationship with him.

Americans have long been fascinated with the promise of the open road. Beginning in 1926, that metaphor for hope and unfulfilled dreams was Route 66, a highway that connected Chicago to the Pacific Ocean. In a two-part documentary airing on the Listening Lounge, you'll hear what the highway meant to 20th century America.Says one woman, "I do think that losing Route 66 was like losing a member of the family. It was a part of what people in Chicago could identify with, people in Oklahoma, people in Texas, people all the way to California. It was like a ribbon that tied us together."Route 66 airs at 7 p.m. May 18 and May 25 on the Listening Lounge on KFAI, 90.3 FM Minneapolis and 106.7 FM St. Paul.
