Join me for a conversation with Miss Rikki Lee, as we go into detail about her early years as a cub reporter and photographer as she tried to make it on the streets of Chicago. In this episode: musical accompaniment that not only connects specifically with her life while she lived there, but in many cases care a chi-town kind of vibe, too. As she recounts her adventures, strap yourself in, as we have cumulatively produced three entire hours of music and interviews. Hope you like Miss Rikki, cause we’ve got nothing but her this entire show.
What can I say that hasn’t already been said? If you’re not already doing so, check her out on Tumblr, and on kpsu.org every Saturday from 1 – 3 PM. Her show is more “FCC-friendly” there, but when she and I get together there are no rules. If you end up liking what you hear in this episode, and you want to hear more, then check out Episode 158: This Is Not A Photograph, where she and I covered her time in Arizona, and some more general information about her life as well. We’re hoping to do this a little more often than every four months, but we shall see.
We are also trying something experimental with this episode, in that we’re presenting it in two parts, over two days. Part One is obviously available now. Part Two will be available on Thursday, giving you a two day wait, and offering you a chance to digest the interview slowly, over time. If you are like me, and you want your podcasts really long for maximum enjoyment, then you are in luck: we will also be releasing, on Thursday, the Director’s Cut version of this show. Please let us know what you think of this. We’ve been toying with the length of shows for a while now, and we feel that by doing things like this, we can offer a range of listening options for people who have different tastes. As usual, we look for feedback here, or any other our other conduits of communication.
With that said, let’s present Part I of “The Scumburg Manifesto.”
See ya in two!
