The theme of this year’s KCRW 24-Hour Radio Race was “Where the Sun Don’t Shine”. One entry received the Nocturne Award.

There’s really nothing else like late night call in shows on the radio – other humans, in real time, just chatting. It can bring comfort and normalcy to the hours that can feel like anything but comforting or normal.

Is the fear of getting lost and running out of gas in the middle of the night, in the forest, justifiable? Of course it is. Does that mean that your justified in accusing this guy of following you, and spying on you, implying that he had some kind of nasty motive? Um, no.

Wow, what a journey. It was like a visualization meditation with special effects. Just imagining you're actually doing those things, being in these places and experiencing the literally awesome moments blows my mind. Thank you so much for sharing this in this heart-poundingly relatable manner. You made me think about and re-experience these moments in my life and how I would feel to do, what you do. (I can understand your fascination, but for some reason I'm too afraid of the dark). Anyhow, thank you for letting me understand your passion. Very humble and kind greetings
