This hour, we’re sharing a few of Third Coast’s favourite stories that didn’t quite fit the mold of past episodes.

Smart Old Broad
By Gideon Brower and Nick White for Unfictional from KCRW (2014)
Maureen "Mo" O'Neill was spending her days mostly alone. She didn't have many friends, she was getting older, and didn't know who she was. After work she could never summon up the inspiration it took to get off the couch and leave the house. But that's when she discovered the solution that opened up the world to her… competitive air guitar.

The Leaves
By Jaye Kranz for ‘Between The Essays’ ( The Essay ) for Falling Tree Productions & BBC Radio 3 (2015)
Radio producer Jaye Kranz was given a line of poetry from an Adelaide Crapsey poem—"The leaves, frost crisp'd, break from the trees"—and asked to make adventurous radio with it. What followed is a leap into the therapeutic possibilities of poetry, and a tumble down the rabbit hole into a dreamlike space of memories.

The Magic Skates [excerpt]
By Mad Genius for Where@abouts (2016)
Jeanne Du Snark brings the pain for the Mad Rollin' Dolls, a roller derby league in Madison, Wisconsin. The audio collective Mad Genius recorded Jeanne's world, remixing her skates into an arena-shaking stomp. "You could get hit from anywhere. Just be ready."

Six House Parties
By Ross Sutherland for Imaginary Advice (2015)
Ross Sutherland takes you through a creative menagerie of themed house parties.

Knitter on the Bus
By Kate Sweeney for Atlanta Sounds from WABE (2012)
Fred Skey is an Atlanta commuter who’s found a crafty way to pass the time as he takes MARTA to and from work: knitting. He says that the act of knitting feels like a meditation; when he focuses on his stitches during his long commute, the stress from the workday melts away.

This episode of Re:sound was produced by Dennis Funk.
