Episode 160: Traveling Through Time Part III

Time Travel has always been my favorite Sci-Fi subject, and I’ve toyed with the subject myself on this very program a few times before.  But it is not always a subject that easily translates to music.  For some reason, there are just not that many songs about the Grandfather Paradox.  Nonetheless, myself and DJ Really Sloppy made a bonafide effort to piece together a short musical tribute to some of the artists that have tackled the subject.  Abstractly at times, yes.  But you know how it goes.

This episode also marks the introduction of our new studio!  Soylent Green Is People Studios has undergone some improvements in the last week, and we’re happy to report that the show now sounds… well, like a radio program.  I appreciate the patience that listeners have shows in the last several weeks as we’ve recorded in some less-than-stellar enviorns, and your reward will come in the form of bigger, better, and more impressive sounding shows.  I’ve got a slew of new ideas that will be coming your way in the coming weeks, and now we have a good place to create it all from.  If you’ve dug what I’ve done in the past, then you know that what’s to come will be right up your ally.

I want to give a special shout out to kiisu d’salyss, who performed much of the backing music that is throughout this episode.  kiisu and I have been friends for years, and he’s appeared on this show in a few of the different bands that he’s been in, and as a solo artist.  For the music in this particular episode, the music was performed on a Kitara, a computer / keytar / guitar hybrid, manufactured by Misa Digital.  I’m hoping to incorporate more of his performances with this instrument in future episodes, and I really want to thank him for his willingness to join the madness that is our show.  If you hear something that sounds spacey in this show, it’s him.

This one is short and sweet, just the way these shows used to be.  I’m still trying to pin down exactly how long this show is going to be, now that I have the freedom to go as long as I want.  For the time being, I’m going to say that I’ll go anywhere between an hour or two, depending on my mood and the theme.  But I do have some ideas for some longer programs in the future, so we shall see.

See you in seven.

Gun For Dinosaur

Episode 159: A Gun For Dinosaur

In the ’50’s, amid the din and clatter that was dramatic theater on the radio, the show that blew almost all the others away was undoubtedly X Minus One.  They had an amazing crew of writers who went on to do a number of outstanding things, among them Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, Robert Heinlein and Frederik Pohl, just to name a few.  It was the kind of show that could not be missed, and is a big influence on my entire aesthetic.

As part of our Traveling Through Time series, we present A Gun For Dinosaur, writeen by L. Sprague de Camp, originally broadcast on NBC on 7 March 1956.  I’m proud of this audio essay, which also includes The ADD Minute And A … with DJ Really Sloppy weighing in on the subject of the Geek & Sundry launch at Wonder Con.  And, of course, we have A Minute With The Pope, recorded entirely on his iPhone.  I like to think we attempt to deliver a new interpretation of those fantastic radio stories.  With music.

As DJ Really Sloppy seems to have become Unstuck In Time, next week will mostly likely continue our Traveling Through Time series.  Will he survive his experience unscathed?  Tune in next week, to find out.

Miss Rikki Lee!

Episode 158: This Is Not A Photograph (w/ Miss Rikki)

How do you sum up someone as multi-faceted as Miss Rikki Lee?  There are just too many sides to her various creative outputs.  Not content to merely host Closet Radio on kpsu.org (1 – 3 PM on Saturdays), she is also the mastermind behind Closet Photography (Flickr Page), and the proprietor of Dust Bunnies on etsy.  She also finds time to update the hilarious Twitter Feed, @closetphoto, which not only regularly has me in stitches, but regularly stumbling upon countless Pop Culture treasures.  It’s a wonder she had the time to sit down an hang out for a few hours.

But, she did.  And while she was at it, spilled an amazing amount of details about her time working with AZ Kaos, a ‘zine she was heavily involved with during her years in Phoenix, AZ.  She also assembled two sets of fantastic tunes from those stomping grounds.  This is one of those fantastic shows that I really enjoy, and it was awesome to have Miss Rikki in the studios for this one.

While we forego a lot of the segments that have become part and parcel of recent shows, this show contains a priceless interview in three segments.  Miss Rikki Lee is a wonderful storyteller, and for those who have a fondness for the kinds of stories that are born out of small scenes and xerox machines, then this show is for you.  There is also a fantastic mix of music in this show, and I’m stoked to have gotten leads on a bunch of bands that I’m itching to check out.  In fact, if you were featured in some way during this show, I would love to include proper links and whatnot to help flesh that out.  As you can see, Miss Rikki Lee will be returning for further stories of her various adventures, with music!, so stay tuned for that.

The footnotes this week will be heavy with links, so enjoy your homework.

See you in seven.

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!
