Tolkien on the Radio
Tehanu @ 2:11 pm EST

Throughout the summer, there is a radio show on the Bishop's University radio station ( or 88.9 FM in the Sherbrooke area, Quebec, Canada) concerning Tolkien and everything related to the Lord of the Rings. It is called "Passport to Middle-earth" and it airs every Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. eastern time. We talk about different aspects of Tolkien mythology, exploring a specific topic on each show.

So far we have looked into Tolkien's biography, we have shed some light on the various languages of Middle-earth, we have explored the matter of the different kinfolks of Elves, and much more. Next week we will uncover the mysteries of Nýmenor. The music on the show is always related in a way or another to the work of Tolkien; either we play music composed for his mythology or that was inspired by it. Also each week we try to give some news regarding Tolkien or the Lord of the Rings.
