TRACKS Featured on National Public Radio

This Friday may be the 13th, but it also happens to be the day before Valentine’s Day. So the producers of The Signal on National Public Radio’s WYPR in Baltimore have a treat in store for listeners with an ear for quiet romance.

TRACKS author Eric D. Goodman returns to The Signal with another abridged story from TRACKS. This one is perfect for Valentine's Day.

“The Silences” is a story about a young woman traveling with the love of her life on the train from Baltimore to Chicago. She imagines a grim future together, and she longs for him to prove her wrong.

The Signal is broadcast to about 20,000 listeners in the Baltimore-DC area. It airs at 12 noon and again at 7 p.m. and offers a tour of Baltimore’s cultural landscape. Tune into 88.1 FM.

Can’t pick it up, or doesn’t fit your schedule. No worries — you can also listen to it live or in podcast form at the WYPR’s website ( or The Signal’s site (

Once you’ve listened to the abridged version, read the entire story as it was originally published in Slow Trains. You can visit the online literary journal at the link below.
