Teens will go to great lengths for the latest electronic gadgets, as evidenced by one 17-year-old boy in China who sold one of his kidneys to get money for the new iPad2.

He traded his perfectly healthy kidney for the sum of about $3, 300.

That story and more are up this week on Rynski’s Shattered Reality radio show on Party934.com and FM 94.9 in Hudson Valley, N.Y.

Next show is Wednesday, June 8 (today!) and every Wednesday online at Party934.com. Showtime is noon in Arizona, 3 p.m. EST.

Party 934 is a radio alternative for listeners sick of stations that play one song followed by 500 commercials.

This week’s lineup of songs kicks off our series on the elements, starting with tunes that burn up mentioning fire, flames and scorching things.

Thanks! to all who keep the song requests coming.
