The art of Kim Novak

As I've stated quite a few times before, I like to listen to the international broadcasters that used to be on shortwave radio back in the days when that was the technology to use since Internet audio hadn't been developed yet. Anyhow, Thursday's edition of Radio Prague had the feature story 1950’s Hollywood actress Kim Novak exhibits her paintings in Prague.

There's text and a couple of photos at the link above. If you want to listen to the audio, there's an MP3 available for download here. The audio is just over 10 minutes, which means the file should be either about 5 or 10 MB; I can't remember offhand whether Radio Pragues individual features are 64 or 128 kbit/s. (The full-length program including news and current affairs is definitely 64 kbit/s, making Thursday's broadcast 10.5 MB for a program about 23 minutes.) The article states that the exhibit will be running for another two weeks, so if you're near Prague, you still have a chance to see the paintings. Some of Novak's work can also be seen at her website.
