ROGC: Hallowe’eny e’en special!

Ever hear the sound of DJ mummy dust blow past a microphone? or the subtle sound of cobwebs on a turntable? How about creaking, squealing headphones from beyond?

Didn’t think so – and we kept it that way. Hope you tuned in for a live mixed audio spook fix though – sounds & stories

– presented by the Royal Oakland Gramophone Company.

Ok, sometimes I really didn’t try hard enough with the themes…I mean…it was the night BEFORE Hallowe’en, so I gave you a Hallowe’en Eve show – simple formula. But unlike any unrelenting sugary references to holiday ‘boo!’ characters typical of Halloween shows, I was going for something both seasonally fun AND genuinely spooky. Plus I even played 20 seconds of Bark at the Moon.
Shut up!!! It’s my show… I can do whatever I want!
Seriously, I think this show works at any time of the year, and your iPod doesn’t even have to be black and covered in polyester cobwebs -n- candy corn.

Some Damn Intern: The Path of Least Resistance

…so that means “straight up spinning” – okay?
Unfortunately, someone seemed to have foolishly misplaced the studio key. While looking in all the obvious places however, station manager FC Mallard heard a light scratching (fingers AND vinyl) coming from within – either morse code for “SOS, SOS” or “Yo! Yo! Yo!” – we’re not sure. It looks like one sneaky individual of our usually trusty army of interns, ‘Li’l Bouncer’, intentionally locked himself inside to seize a bit of air-time.
While this might imply a problem for tonight’s LIVE webcast, we struck a deal wherein he promised to keep a steady, joyful inspired stream of favorite, fun sounds cascading from the decks and turntables for this extended slot
….and in RETURN, we promised to push vitamins, healthy, hearty soups and water (or at least water soluable tear-gas) through the keyhole until the jaws-of-life & a spanking paddle arrived from the emergency prop rental place.

ROGC: Church of the Lustful Frog

And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs…and thy radio studios
Exodus 8:3

This was probably among my personal favorite shows. Mainly because its fun to think that sneaky double agent priests had always been chanting scientific latin frog names all along (Saints of Amphibia)….back when I was a good, church going tadpole…I mean ‘lad’.
