Episode 178: We Interrupt This News Bulletin To Bring You A Program

Kermit Schafer

Episode 178: We Interrupt This News Bulletin To Bring You A Program
(Featuring selections from the works of Kermit Schafer, and his Pardon My Blooper records.)

This is where I’ll put the long blog entry once it’s finished.  It’ll explain that this week’s show features the work of Kermit Schafer, a radio and TV engineer in the ’50’s through the ’70’s, and who not only coined the idea of a blooper, but also collected hundreds of on-air gaffs and announcer mistakes, which he endlessly released during his lifetime.  Mention that included in this episode is a 20 minutes audio essay about his work, and an hour of music mixed with these strange audio oddities from his records.

Make sure to expand this episode entry to include lots of biographical information, and details as to why I picked the different tracks, etc.

See you in seven.
