Episode 156: Starting Over (Again)



Episode 156: Starting Over (Again)
(Our very first episode on FunemploymentRadio.com, with special guests, my new bosses Greg Nibler & Sarah X. Dylan!)

Welcome to a new era for Blasphuphmus Radio.  I wrapped up my first show in the Funemployment Radio studios, and man it was a blast!  I can already tell that I am really going to enjoy the new possibilities that this show is going to offer.  Already, I’m impressed with what I put together for today.

There are a number of new segments.  Now that I have installed myself in the Lava Lamp Lounge (beneath the Funemployment Radio studios here in Portland, Oregon), I have been able to put together a number of new and fun segments for the show.  We have A Minute With The Pope, featuring audio oddities that are sent to me by The Pope of The Church Of Blasphuphmus.   We have The Sounds Of Portland Oregon, featuring field recordings of the sounds that surround us.  We have the first installment of my Community Service series of audio journals I kept when I served my time in February.  We also have a conversation between myself and DJ JustanotherDJ about the as-yet-untitled segment that he will be hosting from week to week.  Oh, and we even have a bunch of music.  It’s a taste of what this show is going to become as we make ourselves comfortable in the Lava Lamp Lounge.

Special thanks goes out to Paco Jones for writing the new theme music for the show, my wonderful (and understanding) girlfriend, and Greg and Sarah for helping me get this thing off the ground.  I had a lot of fun, and I know it’s only going to get better.

See you in seven!
