The Final KPSU Show
Episode 155: The Last KPSU Broadcast Show
(Wherein we celebrate the last Blasphuphmus Radio show on KPSU, and celebrate our move to Funemploymentradio.com!)
(Note: This recording contains background hiss during the voice-overs. This was an unavoidable tech issue with the live stream at KPSU. I’ve re-built the episode, and have cleaned up as much of the hiss as possible. It’s like listening to an old tape version of us talking now.)
In the Spring of 2004 I wandered into the KPSU studios to see if I could revive my radio program, which had been off the air for a little while and was looking for a new home. By the 25th of June, I was back on the air, and was given a paid job that lasted me quite some time. It was the beginning of something new and exciting, a challenge that I could face with new ideas and experience, and a new way to interpret a radio program that I felt very strongly about.
In that time I’ve had a number of incredible experiences, have met amazing and incredible people, and have gotten to have my say and play my music to a number of fantastic listeners and fans from all over the place. It has been one of my favorite things to do, ever. Now, as I am faced with a new chance to start over, to reinvent the show, and to face new challenges to make the show something completely different again, I wanted to mark this occasion not with sadness, but with a party. And that’s what happened during this show.
A number of people joined in the fun to make this one happen, including Miss Meghan from the long-lost Songs The Lord Taught Us, DJ Swill who provided the swill, DJ JustanotherDJ via our sister-station down south, Jaycation, Jonathon Boober and Miss Rikki (all three current and amazing DJs at KPSU)… even Ricardo Wang dedicated an entire hour to us at 12 Noon. It was a really heartfelt, and amazing show, and not only did I play some great songs and have a great time, but it was the perfect send-off. I can’t imagine anything better.
Of course, this is not the end. Not by a longshot. As we take a week off to re-tool, re-align, and re-vamp our program for its new version at FunemploymentRadio.com, we will return on 06 March 2012 with something new, something old, something borrowed, and something that rocks. I’m really excited about the new direction the show is heading in, and I think that alone will overcome the sadness of leaving something that I’ve grown to know and love over the years.
To everyone who listening and came to the studio yesterday: thank you. Here’s to something new!
