"It's Over Your Head" is Celestial North's weekly radio program covering all things astronomical. The show airs during radio prime-time each Wednesday morning at 8:20AM, and again at 10:30AM Sunday mornings. Each episode is 5-1/2 minutes in length. You can listen live via the web by clicking here.
The show has aired continuously now for over a decade on KSER 90.7 FM radio. 

Until 2001, the program was recorded at the KSER studios. But we wanted to be more creative with our program, and to do so meant having more control over production. So Greg bought a mixer board, some microphones, and computer software to manipulate and mix the voice tracks with our background music and the occasional sound effect. We now record in Greg's home "sound studio", burn the show to CDROM, and deliver it to the station for airing.

Now a production of Celestial North, for the first several years of its existence the show was written, performed, produced, and engineered by a dedicated staff of volunteers from the Everett Astronomical Society and the Seattle Astronomical Society.

In addition to listening real-time on the air or over the web, we also maintain an audio archive of past programs, as well as transcripts of the broadcasts.  To listen to and/or read past shows, simply click one of the links on the left.
