Episode 167: Bit Players In The College Radio Drama That Is Blasphuphmus Radio
(Featuring edited highlights from four early episodes, where my roommates joined me in the studio for silly, late night, college radio fun.)

In the earliest days of the program, my notion of having guests on my program was to invite my roommates into the studio, while we were all drunk, to listen to some college radio.  Now, in the distant future, I’m asking you to join us on a similar journey.  Highlighting four episodes from 1998, here are my roommates, my friends, and my guests, from the embryonic era that is so near to this programs beginning.

I have to say, with the complete perspective that hindsight so acutely offers, it is interesting to comb through the airchecks, and revisit these programs.  I’m friends with nearly all of these people to this very day, and each of them have moved on to pursue their own lives and interests in amazing ways.  These programs are small cross-sections, a blip on the radar from their perspective.  But to me, these were important evenings, fun times that I happen to have a documented record of, and that is so rare for anyone who considers their youth.  Hopefully, some of the joy I get out of these seeps through as you listen to these recordings today.

For the first time since I recorded these shows, they are hearing the light of day, and at the proper speed!  The tape recordings were often too slow – or too fast – to make much sense, but modern technology has allowed me to fix these errors.  To my knowledge, only these people have ever heard these recordings before, as this program began in a time before podcasts, and before digital distribution.  My hope is that this functions as a record of those times, and a sampling of the various formats this show had in the early days.

Many apologies for the delay getting this episode posted.  There were a number of personal and production delays, mostly because I wanted these episodes to be presented at their proper speeds, and other recording opportunities popped up at the last minute.  Fortunately, these opportunities have manifested in shows that you can download now, and one that you will hear in the future.  These opportunities involve live music, and also some cool Sci-Fi remixes.  I’m hoping to get back on track, and there may well be another episode this week to make up for this, at least a Mini-Cast.  So, stay tuned.

That’s all for this Memorial Day.  Thanks again for indulging me.

See you real soon.

Empty Room

Empty Room, LIVE! (Live Friday 018)

Empty Room is a unique blend of post-punk and new wave with an up-to-date sensibility. With only had a small number of live performances to show off their skills, the few they’ve done have been testaments to their ability and skill as performers. Their first EP, “Silence,” has upheld the promise of these performances: a solid and sophisticated release, pleasing yet challenging all at once.

Krandroid The Friendly Robot, LIVE! (Live Friday 015)

Krandroid The Friendly Robot is the result of the unholy mating of a man and machine, both left in the damp neighborhoods of Portland to ferment, grow, and mutate. Krandroid plays danceable totalitarian techno metal and remixed video game classics. The “Man” portion of Krandroid has been playing music since the age of 12. He is a Native of L.A., but has been fully transplanted to the fertile soil of Portland. In his spare time, Krandroid enjoys bringing harmony to the Galaxy via the soothing and efficiency-inspiring sounds of his music.
