Hi, just to give you an update on what we are planning over the next few shows!
The November show will feature some discussions from the Leeds Shindig that we attended, plus a suprise – I’m not sure if I’m allowed to talk about it yet, but Wendy and Toni have an interview planned in for next week that should be rather interesting!
I am in Australia in November, so I am hoping to go to a Shindig in Sydney and meet up with some Browncoats over there, and give us an Aussie perpective on the Firefly phenomenon for the December Show. Wendy will be in the USA at the time, so she will be Skyping in to tell us what she is up to! So our Decemer show will have a truly international feel.
As well as all of that, next year the gang are attending the Serenity 4 convention in Glasgow, and we are hoping to do some more live(ish) shows from there. Also, in September we are hoping to attend DragonCon in the USA. And between now and then we have topic based shows, interviews, a couple more Shindigs and even a Firefly based quiz. (Think “Have I got Firefly For You!”)
So keep listening, and please keep sending us the feedback. The next show will be available in early November – exact date has yet to be confirmed – so watch this space!
We’ve received this release:
“Firefly at Memorabilia”
Joss Whedon’s short-lived Sci-Fi romp ‘Firefly’ may be gone, but it certainly isn’t forgotten. Firefly fandom is alive and well and is due to be celebrated at the upcoming Memorabilia show this Autumn.
The Firefly collection will be on public display this November 25th and 26th at the NEC in Birmingham. The collection comprises many hand props and costume items, documents, photographs and models.
This is the first time the collection has been shown in it’s entirety, anywhere in the world.
Items of special interest for fans of the show include Mal Reynolds’ original Browncoat, Jayne’s favourite gun ‘Vera’ and the only physical model of the ship ‘Serenity’ ever made.
Karl Derrick, the collection’s owner and a big Firefly fan, was a major contributor to the Official Firefly Companion book and will be on hand to sign copies and answer any questions visitors may have about the items on display.
A professional movie make up artist, Karl will also be entertaining visitors to the show (in the Halloween spirit) with a daily ‘zombie’ prosthetic make up demonstration. Karl’s film credits include Gladiator, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, The Brothers Grimm, and The Mummy Returns. He has just completed ‘1408’, a Stephen King supernatural thriller, starring John Cusack and Samuel L.Jackson.”
All of the props/costumes are featured in the “Official Firefly Companion” and after seeing part of the collection at an event held at the National Space Centre in Leicester a couple of months ago, this is a must-see for all fans.
Hope to see many of you there.
If you’re in Oxford this Saturday, 14 October, join your fellow Browncoats for a shindig!
The plan is to meet at Bella Pasta at 1pm; check out http://www.cantstopthesignal.co.uk, then the “social events” file for full information and to add your name to the list.
Have a great time!
Welcome back for show 6.
In this episode we discuss how the crew members found Firefly, and what other shows and movies get us excited.
We’ve also got an interview with Steve and Naomi from The Firefly Store which was recorded at Collectormania 10.And we let y’all know about listener contributions and feedback. Also Wendy embarrasses our producer Andrew by telling everyone what he’ll do when we get our first voicemail.
Hope everyone enjoys the show. You can subscribe to the feed listed to the right or download it by clicking here

“Smoke me a kipper i’ll be back for breakfast.”
We have decided to remove the first two episodes from the feed. Although the content is great, the audio quality of the episodes are not, and if a new subscriber starts with these we are worried that it may put them off!
The first two episodes will be available until Friday, 6th October, at which point we will be archiving them. You can download them via the feed, or click on the following links to download them direct:
If you want to download the whole set manually, go ahead, here are the other three:
The Leeds Shindig that we mentioned in the last show is happening on Saturday, 7th October. Attendees are meeting at the Wokmania Restaurant in Leeds City Centre (see the map above) at midday (for directions click here) The full address is Park Plaza Hotel, 1, City Square, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS1 5NS. They will then be moving on to the Firefly Bar (yes, there really is a bar called the Firefly Bar, how cool is that?) They will be there until about eight o’clock. The full address for the Firefly Bar is 21, Park Row, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS1 5JF. Click here for a map.
Sending a Wave will be there covering the event and hopefully talking to as many of the fans as possible. Presenters Toni Myers, Wendy Scott and new presenter Mike Greaves will be there, as well as Andrew, their “Tech Guy”.
So, if you want to attend, just turn up at Wokmania for midday and at the Firefly Bar after about one. We hope to see as many people there as possible!
