Episode 136: The Cask of Amontillado w/ Miss Rikki! (A Halloween Spook-tacular!)
(Featuring a special Halloween Spook-tacular airing of a How’s It Named? rendition of Basil Rathbone’s reading of the Edgar Allen Poe classic!)
How’s It Named? dates back to my appearance on What’s This Called? in 2008, when I guested on his show and came up with this idea that our shows, combined, would take on this name. Then, as time when it, it became the name I used when I was doing an experimental set of music, which is what appears on today’s show.
This time, I’m not only backed by new KPSU DJ Miss Rikki, who has a great mind for this sort of thing when Ricardo Wang suggested coverage, but have added to all of this a layer of Halloween Spook-tacular, by remixing Basil Rathbone’s rendition of The Cask of Amontillado for this particular program. You can check out Miss Rikki on her new program, Closet Radio, which is at 5 PM on Saturday’s, and rounds out the KPSU weekend line-up.
She and I collaborated on the selections for this show, and I think it came out rather nicely, minus the technical issues that we suffered from. Plus, this has an actual element of creepy to it, which is missing from the Spook-tacular shows I’ve done this year. I think Miss Rikki will be joining us often in the future, so hopefully there will be more wonderful shows like this.
