Episode 154: The People Who Died Part II
(Featuring tributes to the number of talented performers that we’ve lost over the last few years.)

My original vision for Blasphuphmus Radio was to mix DJing and other radio reporting in the same show.  A little music, a little news, and little remixing, a little radio art, all in one.  Of course, this vision almost never occured.  In the early shows, I mixed in some music news, and occasionally would do a few talk segments.  But on the whole, talking about anything related to music just never happened.

Until Captain Beefheart died about a year ago, and I was completely overcome with the idea of doing a tribute… and not just to him, but to everyone who had recently passed that I had missed for one reason or another.  And thus, The People Who Died was born.  I knew instantly that I wanted to make this a regular feature on the show, which of course meant that when it came time to do part two, that it would have to be delayed for several weeks.  Nonetheless, it is ready for you, now.

This show is notable because friend and artist Paco Jones contributed some music to use in the show.  Paco and I had discussed the idea of doing a collaboration, and we were excited to see if we could work on something in the radio vein.  When I told him I was doing a tribute to people who have recently passed, he sat on the idea for about four hours, before sending the songs that I ended up using.  Paco has appeared on the show a few times, and I am a big supporter of his work.  The link above goes to his Soundcloud page, where you can enjoy even more of his work.  I also recommend picking up one of his discs, which you can find via CD Baby.  I’m excited to see if we can do more collaborations like this going forward, and in possibly more unusual ways.  (Do I hear a radio drama in our future?  Only time can tell.)  Regardless, we really want to thank Paco.  Keep up the good work.

This show mostly speaks for itself, and I really had a good time assembling this one.  While big tribute shows like this may not happen in the future, this segment will definitely make more appearances in our new format on Funemploymentradio.com.  Don’t forget: the 25th of February is the last show on KPSU.  If you want to join us during the show, either by phone or in person, please drop us an e-mail at austinrich@gmail.com.  We are hoping to have a bit of a party that day, and really enjoy the last show in a studio and at a station that I really enjoy.  Please, join us for this party.  For more information, you should check out this Facebook Page.

Thanks again for listening.  See you in seven!
