It´s like an amazing ad hoc auto museum, with open hoods and idling engines. Every week hundreds of car nuts gather at this diner parking lot in Burbank, CA to show off their big, beautiful, all-American machines.Then, at the Dub Magazine car show at the L.A. Convention Center, photographer Jae Bueno introduces us to the customizers behind tricked-out Cadillac Coupes and fancy pin-stripes. And, LA´s underground hip-hop act Jurassic 5 brought tunefulness and fun back to ´90s hip-hop. Last year Kurt talked with Chali 2na, one of the founders of that group, about his first solo album and his work as a visual artist. 2na says that writing lyrics is a lot like painting: ´´I need to see them. I need them to be - beautiful in a way.´´ [Broadcast Date: January 1, 2011] 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/stud/110101/rt_stud_110101_sample.mp3.

As the planner for the Hot Rods´ quadruple wedding - one of which involves her sister, Nola - Amber Brown needs every ounce of her formidable attention to detail. Which is just fine with her.

But after watching her mother suffer the heartache of her father´s death, Amber won´t risk her heart, not even for the super-sexy lawyer on the guest list. Gavyn has handled enough divorce cases to witness the horrors people who supposedly love each other can inflict. Yet when he assists Amber with the wedding prep in exchange for her advice on his new venture, it´s hard to ignore the steam rising between them. Finally they agree to a single night of strings-free sex. Except one taste isn´t enough to curb their hunger...until Amber makes a shocking discovery that sours her appetite for the man she thought could satisfy her for a lifetime and leaves Gavyn negotiating desperately for a future he never thought he craved. 1.

A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors´ American Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of America´s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. The "Golden Age" of television was in part so named because it was the era in which new technology was pioneered and industry rules were still being written. Here was a fascinating new medium, founded by executives with no previous body of experience, and a myriad of directions in which to proceed. Numerous factions spent the next generation wresting control over content and the content/product relationship. Some envisioned a public service and educational medium, while others sought sophisticated entertainment. With profit as the determining motive, executives and sponsors sought only what would evoke the most lucrative response. The term "Golden Age" also applies to the reality that much of the television programming in the 1950s was offered up as live performance, a dangerous and exciting time for both writers and actors. As pioneer director John Frankenheimer put it, "There were no old days. We were the old days." Frankenheimer went on to associate with one of the age´s best and most prolific TV writers, Rod Serling, an enduring name in the realm of philosophical fright and ironic reflections of human injustice. 1.

If the sexy construction crew were Powertools, their cousin mechanics are sure to be Hot Rods. Nothing´s sexier than seven men with hot rods. Salome ´´Sally´´ Rider is flooring the gas pedal of her pink ´69 Mustang, desperate to outrun the memory of two of her fellow mechanics getting busy with some bar skank on the hood of a classic car--on her custom paint job. For years her emotions have withered while her lost boys, her Hot Rods, have grown closer than brothers. Maybe some downtime with the Powertools sexperts will help her figure out why Eli and Alanso went looking for some strange when Sally was waiting right at the ends of their grease-smudged noses. Sally is dead wrong about what she thought she saw, and Eli ´´King Cobra´´ London and the rest of the thoroughly rattled Hot Rods are determined prove it. They´ll show her in the sexiest possible way that she´s not merely an interchangeable part in their well-oiled machine. Yet just as Eli gets up the nerve to make a very indecent proposal, a ghost rises from her painful past, threatening to slam the brakes on their future before they can get it in gear. Warning: A sexy car wash complete with lots of studs may not be enough to clean up the pages filled with massive ménage scenes starring extra-dirty mechanics. 1. Language: English.

If the sexy construction crew were Powertools, their cousin mechanics are sure to be Hot Rods. Nothing´s sexier than seven men with hot rods. Hot Rods, Book 1 After Eli´s mother died, his father honored her life´s mission as a social worker by taking in several kids from the wrong side of the tracks. Not all of them stuck, but those who did became Eli´s quasi family. Their bonds, forged in fires set by their personal demons, are unbreakable - or so Eli wants to believe. Especially since he and Alanso, his best friend and head mechanic, witnessed the overpowering allure of polyamory while visiting the Powertools crew. Much as Eli would like to deepen the relationships among his foster brothers and sister in the Hot Rods Restoration Team, he´s hesitant to risk everything on a quick romp behind a stack of tires. But when Eli catches Alanso exploring their mutual fantasy at a known hookup spot in a public park, all bets are off. And Eli must decide if it´s time to jump in full throttle - and trust his instincts to guide him through the night. If the pair of mechanics can dodge the potholes in their own relationship, maybe they can race together toward the unconventional arrangement with Mustang Sally they both desire. Warning: Fasten your seatbelts, this is going to be a wild (and naughty) ride! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory Salinas.

She´s running on empty...and he´s ready to fill her up. After watching his mother crumble in the face of heartbreak, Holden believes monogamy is bull. New week, new woman - that´s just how he rolls. Too bad one taste of Sabra Harp leaves him salivating for more. Sabra was ready for the climb from local news reporter to national anchor - before her pursuit of a story almost destroyed the Hot Rods, whose friendship she has admired from afar. Too bad they all hate her guts. That´s okay; she despises what she´s become, too...enough that she´s just told her boss where to stick it. When Holden drives a drunken Sabra home and puts her to bed, her blatant invitation almost has him following her between the sheets. She´s willing to let him take charge in bed, friends included - and he´s willing to listen to her amazing business proposition, which could rocket the Hot Rods to stardom. Yet as his friends have paired off, Holden realizes that to participate in their polyamorous games without becoming a third wheel, he needs Sabra. And she needs him...oh, how she needs him. Warning: contains a career-driven newswoman/yoga fiend who wants to get twisted up with a Hot Rod or five and a what´s-mine-is-yours guy who likes to watch. One scene with nonexplicit drug use takes a Hot Rod to the dark side - good thing this group of friends always has each other´s backs. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory Salinas.

Now Kaige wonders if she´ll embrace this glimpse of their future, or if she´ll run as fast as her killer stilettos can take her.
