Programme Schedule

Sherry has created this "13.10 Listening Room" inspired by "All the Light We Cannot See", a Pulitzer-winning book by Anthony Doerr which also won the 2014 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Hitorical Fiction. The novel was recently adapted by Netflix and turned into a film of the same name. You can read the synopsis of the book here. Skip to programme schedule here and latest info on the latest upcoming episode here.


From July 2024 (first show on American Independence Day, midday 5 July 2024 in New Zealand), Sherry (and sometimes Zoe too) aims to do regular readings of music, poetry, philosophy, and other literary works (already in public domain and out of copyright) LIVE on a chosen online audio platform (with no replay), to share new and old ideas in the digital age where information comes far too easily and readily. She aims to bring back the nostalgia and excitement of live radio broadcast (different from social audio), touch the hearts of her listeners and bring them hope through the beauty of the selected works.

More details to come soon! You will also be able to find a schedule and link on this page.

The first book we will share will be "The Light We Cannot See", one chapter at a time. Listeners are welcome to submit book titles and a short piece of classical music to be played which will go on the wish list for future readings. 

You can find the streaming link here at Sherry's online radio station "Next Golden Age", and when she's not broadcasting, her own piano recordings will be streaming 24/7 (right now her Scriabin recordings from 2020-2022). Apart from "13.10 Listening Room" there is plan for more different programmes in the near future.
