    This hour an unlikely best-seller, a colorful hero and the legends of burlesque. “Naked Came the Stranger”: an oral history By Sam Kim for PRI’s Studio360 In 1969, the erotic potboiler “Naked Came the Stranger” climbed The New York Times bestseller list. According to the back cover, it was written by a “demure Long Island housewife” named Penelope Ashe. Except… that wasn’t the whole story. Becoming Barbara by Natalie Kestecher for Short Cuts on BBC Radio 4 When Natalie found herself stuck on a story she was writing and struggling for ideas, a friend invited her to a special gathering. There, during a spiritual dalliance into literary soul-searching, she finally met her muse... the author Barbara Cartland. Burlesque Legends by Steve Urquhart for Seriously on BBC Radio 4 Each year, hundreds of performers attend the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas, where the guests of honour are The Living Legends. In the mid-20th century these women were shunned by society. Most were presumed prostitutes. But now their careers are celebrated, and their ground-breaking acts are revived, at the Titans of Tease Reunion. British actor, cabaret star, and former Best Male Striptease Artist, Mat Fraser embarks on a very personal journey to meet some of the legends, both on and off stage. This hour of Re:sound was produced by Dennis Funk.

    Ancien caïd d’une cité de Villiers-le-Bel, en banlieue parisienne, Wilfried parle avec recul de son passé de délinquant, de son enfance, de son quartier… De son désir de s’en éloigner aussi, en achetant un pavillon pas trop loin des barres d’immeuble où il a grandi. C’est au moment où il pensait quitter sa cité que la cité l’a rattrapé. Wilfried a été tué le 17 mars 2016 dans un bar-tabac de Goussainville. Isabelle Coutant et Mehdi Ahoudig l’enregistraient depuis plus d’un an pour faire son portrait. De portrait, le documentaire se mue alors en enquête pour comprendre le drame. Les auteurs rencontrent son frère, ex-champion du monde de boxe et animateur d’un club dans le quartier, sa sœur, sa femme et mère de ses enfants, mais aussi l’avocate de la famille et la journaliste locale du Parisien. L’honneur, l’omerta, la vengeance, l’orgueil, les armes, tels semblent les ingrédients du destin de Wilfried, qui prend des allures de tragédie grecque… Une enquête signée Isabelle Coutant (les Migrants en bas de chez soi, Seuil) et Mehdi Ahoudig (Prix Europa pour Qui a connu Lolita ? et Poudreuse dans la Meuse). Enregistrements : 15-18 - Narration : Isabelle Coutant - Réalisation : Mehdi Ahoudig - Mise en ondes, musique originale et mix : Samuel Hirsch - Illustration : Zaven Najjar

    Anna Klein thinks that tea tastes better on the Faroe Islands than in Denmark. She thinks the water’s more pure there, and she often thinks about moving there. But she also worries that her fantasies of running away to the remote corners of the world may be a familial urge to isolate herself, the same way her father did...a tendency that ultimately contributed to his early death.

    It’s 1951. Cobh, County Cork, Ireland. Jo Murray is 18 years old and stands at the railing of a westbound transatlantic ship flanked by four other teenage Irish girls. But these aren’t just any mid-century Irish immigrants. They’re going to Texas, and they’re going to become nuns. For the past three years Emma Decker has lived on and off in the convent these women immigrated to in San Antonio, Texas. Sisters Jo (Josephine) Murray and Gabrielle Murray from Ballinasloe, Co. Galway, are Emma’s grand aunts—now aged 80 and 85. The more they talked to Emma about growing up in the West of Ireland in the 1940s, about emigration as young single women, and arriving into a deeply polarized American South in the middle of the Civil Rights Movement, the more Emma wanted to know: how the heck did hundreds of Irish teenagers end up in Texas, and what became of that choice? The resulting story follows Emma’s grand aunts from the Roscommon dairy where they grew up to their roles as teachers in what was the first free Catholic school for African Americans in the State of Texas. A lifetime later, these days the nuns in Emma’s grand aunts’ convent are coming to terms with the end of their way of life. Sisters Jo and Gabrielle Murray’s path from Ireland to San Antonio and the legacy they’ve left behind are both unlikely. In 1888, a widowed Irish immigrant established a pipeline between San Antonio and convents in Ireland so that she could staff an antebellum school for emancipated African Americans with young Irish nuns. During the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 60s, this order of nuns defied the Catholic Church’s call to stay away from politics by marching with protesters and supporting the desegregation of schools. Many became influential leaders in their communities and the first in their families to go to college. These mid-century teenagers turned entering a convent—of all places—into an opportunity to be pioneers. Emma’s grand aunts are candid about the difficulties of being a nun, an activist, and an immigrant. After Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, one of Emma’s grand aunts overheard a priest jubilantly shout, "Yes! They got him!" She remembers wishing she had hit him. The other aunt recounts meeting her infant niece for the first time, and realizing "that I would never have a beautiful baby of my own." The nuns in San Antonio are resilient, powerful women. They are bastions of justice and pillars of time. Soon, their stories will be gone and they are ones that need to be told — of the vanishing, the brave, and the silent forces of history. Their memories chronicle a century of change in the institutions of the church, race relations, economics and politics. Closer to heart for Emma, the curious grand niece of Sisters Jo and Gabrielle Murray, is that their conversations reveal the evolution of Emma’s international Irish family and the women who built it.
