How Radio Isnt Done Part 1

August 25, 2005
Solo

In this radio about radio series, we cover many aspects of how good /”wrong/” radio can be, and how innovative radio procedures normally shunned in the meek and convention-bound history of radio formats have provided the most interesting listening.
Intermixed tonight are Firesign radio, early Bob and Ray from 49, Chris Morris on the BBC, Australian radio on culture jamming, prank calls to religious stations, and a frustrated Howard Stern gradually leaving the constraints of terrestrial broadcasting.

Massive Misconception part 2

August 11, 2005
Solo

Continuing the misconceptions, heres a few big historical ones. Nazi Germany was built on a fantasized history of Arian heritage going back to Atlantis. Primarily propagated by Himler, this mystical view of ancient history quickly became accepted dogma among Germanys most respected scholars and intellectuals during the Third Reich. The arrogance of General George Custer in confronting the Sioux of the Black Hills resulted in a major (subsequently glorified) defeat of American eminent domain in 1876. From OTE history, Ringo is reported dead in 1984 and the show immediately switches to tribute mode.
