WAFFLES! A weekly radio show/podcast on varying themes

A different theme each week! MeFite Kitteh and I co-host a Saturday-morning radio show at CFRC in Kingston, Ontario, and for over three years we've picked a weekly theme and explored it through music, in every style imaginable. I've been pushing the archives to podcast (legally, under a SOCAN 22F tariff) for a while now. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or Google Play (search for Waffles Radio)! The site also archives a summer radio fill-in/podcast on video game music and composers, Virtualosos, which ultimately wasn't sustainable.

A Survey about Public Radio

I'm writing a book about the public radio pledge drive. I've conducted two focus groups and done two years worth of secondary research. I've also had interviews with leaders in and founders of public radio. And I have nearly 1,000 followers on various social media accounts who are in public radio. But, like the focus groups, I also need this kind of one-on-one, primary research result. [more inside]

Nine Views of the Ordinaires: A radio documentary

For one fleeting moment in the summer of 1989, college radio, MTV, classic rock, and the avant-garde intersected when The Ordinaires, a nine-piece orchestral art-rock band from New York City, summoned the ghosts of ‘70s stadium-rock bombast with an infamous cover tune. And after a decade surviving near-death experiences and religious condemnation, the band was about to face its most formidable obstacle: itself. This is the story of a time and a place never to be repeated, in which an unlikely group of people made a most unusual noise. These are Nine Views of the Ordinaires. (59m) [more inside]

You Matter, Episode 1: Greg Erskine

MeFi's beloved Gregnog was kind enough to be the first guest for my new podcast. The whole pretense is this: I've spent 20 years in public radio, listening to people being interviewed only because they had a new book or movie or TV show coming out that week. I love Terry Gross, but her bosses would never schedule a butcher or a puppeteer or a single mom, unless there was some financial reason to do so. So that's the point of this podcast - I am going to interview "ordinary" people, to underscore the fact that there is no such thing as an ordinary person. (Here is the full manifesto behind it.) Thanks to gregnog for being a great first guest. I have six more in the can, and I have solved the audio issues that plague this first one.

Grants, Fellowships, Internships & Awards Calendar

Last year I submitted the work of a team of volunteer journalists at KBOO in Portland for several journalistic awards. While looking for places to submit work from that team, I discovered the means to apply for awards is very disjointed. Many links offering such opportunities are several years old, meaning in some cases, the organization is no longer making the offering. In other cases, the links are dead because the organization has folded. In still other cases, there is simply a message saying the organization is not taking applicants for the current year.

AM/FM - the story of London's pirate radio stations

The Conversation

The Conversation is an 8-month long conversation about the future, based on the hypothesis that at certain times in history the established systems (of economics, society, religion, etc.) cease answering the important questions. At these moments, we posit, a conversation takes place which tears down the old and builds anew the systems of thought for the next era. Our questions: Are we in one of those moments? If so, is the conversation taking place? Is the conversation even possible in this age of siloed knowledge and specialization. We're trying to find it or, perhaps, to start it. [more inside]

Randophonic - a radio show's blog

Randophonic is a blog for a music-based radio show that airs weekly (most weeks anyway) c/o CiTR.FM.101.9, Vancouver, Canada (University of British Columbia). Podcast links are easily accessible via the site. Since November-2011, Randophonic's main focus has been the All Vinyl Countdown + Apocalypse (the 1,111 Greatest Records You Probably Haven't Heard), as selected by Philip Random over ten years ago (and then he disappeared). Lately, the countdown just passed its midway point. Also, as I've just passed my 4th Anniversary as a numbered MeFite, the timing feels right to finally share this project. [more inside]

The Long Bleep, a podcast and blog about taboo language.

The Long Bleep will be a public forum for discussion of four-letter words, "dirty" words, swearing, cursing, obscenities, and more. The first step is a questionnaire. Its results will be used to create podcasts and blog posts structured around things that really happened when taboo language was used: confrontations, first encounters, eureka moments, learning situations. Those stories will lead us down cultural and historical paths as we tease out the complicated relationship English-speakers worldwide have with "dirty" words. More information on the blog.

ShortWaveMusic 2012: Timbuktu

A short film documenting my recent trip across the Republic of Mali to record indigenous and regional music. After the kidnappings and murder in Timbuktu in December 2011, I had forfeited all plans to go to the northern half of the country ... until the day I was piled into a 4x4, completely unplanned, and swept away to Timbuktu as the personal guest of a Malian gendarme. This film documents my early work in Mali ... and the utterly unique experiences that awaited me in Timbuktu. [more inside]

NPR Fresh Air Tumblr

This is a Tumblr I started which goes behind the scenes of my office. (I work at a public radio show in Philadelphia.) I try to post stuff about upcoming guests as well as posts that fit in with the aesthetic of the show. I have a lot of fun with it and thought I'd share it with Metafilter. (There's a lot of behind the scenes stuff about public radio.)

THE FLYING BIKE - an audio drama

My friend and I have created a 5-part audio drama about how a really bad Hollywood movie gets made. The story is told sequentially, in self-contained 30-minute pieces, from the perspectives of the writers, the producer, the script supervisor, the van driver, the assistant editor, and an audience member after the movie comes out. The first 30-minute piece took six months to produce (in our spare time with even sparer money), but I’m happy with how it turned out. We’re trying to decide if we want to record the rest of the episodes. I’m for it (as is the cast, etc.) but my friend’s not sure if people will be interested in listening to something like this. We would love any feedback you have to offer. Thank you! [more inside]

Soundtap.com - Human Powered Radio

Soundtap.com, a crowd sourced guide to independent radio, today announced the launch of its new social platform. The site features live streams and profiles of hundreds of stations and shows alongside a real-time chat and activity feed on each page. Soundtap aims to revitalize non-commercial radio by promoting listener participation and bringing attention back to individual radio shows.

"There is an incredibly rich variety of programming in college and community radio that is largely overlooked.” said Sujay Vennam, Soundtap co-founder. “Many people are tired of the repetition they hear on commercial radio and automated playlists but don’t realize that they have access to thousands of interesting DJs who volunteer at independent radio stations around the world. Soundtap harnesses the power of community moderation to make these shows more accessible.” [more inside]

WTF with Marc Maron: the Public Radio Show

WTF is a popular podcast hosted by comedian Marc Maron. He interviews comics (and once in a while non-comics) about their lives and how their minds work, and generates really amazing insights. Since I'm a public radio producer, I talked Marc into making a limited-run public radio series out of some of the best episodes of the show. My colleague Nick White helped. You can listen to (and review) the episodes at PRX.org.

Art International Radio

Last month, I finished designing a new website for an art gallery and radio station in NYC: Art International Radio (formerly known as WPS1). We've got and oodles oodles of rare and interesting content, interviews, music shows, recordings, performances. Listen to an interview about Fururist noise music boxes called the Intonarumori, or an interview with Jim Jarmusch, Gregg Araki, or Michel Gondry. Listen to Genesis P-Orridge ruminate on life and art, or tune into the latest interviews from the Brooklyn Rail. We've acquired some historic audio tapes, and am digitizing them in the process, so that you can listen to Allen Ginsberg (and his father!) talk together. There's music, too: Listen to a curated show on Minimalist music, a recording of a chiptunes/NES-driven performance, some really great disco/house mixes, a curated selection of contemporary Brazilian music (expect bossa nova!), or a wonderfully John Peel-inspired indie rock show. If you want something more experimental, then you can listen to a series of short radio micro-compositions, cassette-tape-generated noise, industrial percussion music performances. --- And if you're overwhelmed, check out the AIR stream, and just sit back and listen...

RadioCollective.org: crowd-sourced non-commercial web radio.

After a couple months of working on the college radio map project, I had accumulated more favorite shows than I could keep track of (see?). My friends convinced me that with some effort we could build a calendar of awesome shows spanning 24/7. Well, after countless hours of listening to shows and asking DJs for recommendations, our calendar now boasts 447 outstanding commercial-free programs and counting! We haven't been able to stop exploring since we realized how rewarding it is and we hope you'll join us. [more inside]

Soul Possession, Ben Hamper's radio show arhive site

Best selling author Ben Hamper (Rivethead) has a vast knowledge of music. He hosts two radio shows, Soul Possession and Head For The Hills, both broadcast on community station WNMC 90.1 FM located in Traverse City, MI. Here is an archive of the streams for both shows. 'Soul Possession' is two hours of classic R&B, Funk, Soul and Blues, while 'Head For The Hills' is an hour of old Country, Hillbilly and Western music. Ben digs deep and mainly plays obscurities, B-sides and other rarities. There is also a link to listen to the streams live. I've been maintaining the site for over a year now and felt that there is enough material on it now to share with the Blue. Enjoy!

Map and streaming playlist of the best non-commercial college radio stations.

After discovering two amazing college radio stations in my proximity (KZSU - Stanford and KFJC - Foothills College), I began listening not only from my car but wherever I had a high speed internet connection. Thus I began a mission to identify all similarly awesome stations in the USA/Canada. The result is 77 high-quality streaming commercial-free radio stations that you can load into a convenient playlist. Surely this beats the repetitive, commercial music discovery sites out there. It has been an extremely rewarding project for me, and I hope you enjoy it too! [more inside]

The Marketplace of Ideas

A public radio program and podcast dedicated to in-depth conversation with thinkers and creators. It emphasizes equally the ideas and the people behind them, and those people have included 43Folders founder Merlin Mann, "mumblecore" director Andrew Bujalski, New Yorker fiction critic James Wood, Bookworm host Michael Silverblatt, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. I've aired over 100 interviews so far, most about an hour long, and I show no signs of stopping.

Contemporary Psychiatry

My grandfather, Dr John Lovett-Doust was a physiological psychiatrist in Ontario, Canada from 1952 until 1980; sadly I never met him before he died 1980. When our family was recently able to acquire a copy of a ten-part CBC radio series he created for the program University of the Air (precursor to the Ideas program) on the subject of 'contemporary psychiatry,' it was for myself and many of the other grandchildren the first time we had heard his voice. While the site is a work in progress, please enjoy sampling the recordings. [more inside]

The First Great Radio Hoax: London, January 16, 1926

Twelve years BEFORE Orson Welles’ infamous War of the Worlds hoax, BBC radio put out a fake news programme of its own. Ronald Knox’s Broadcasting the Barricades convinced thousands of British listeners that London had been attacked by Communist rioters, Big Ben flattened by mortars, the Savoy Hotel bombed to rubble and a Government minister lynched in the street. The BBC was flooded with anxious calls, provincial mayors dusted off their own cities’ emergency plans and the Royal Navy was told to dispatch a battleship up the Thames. The New York Times had a jolly good laugh at the Brits’ foolish gullability, smugly heading its own report: “We are safe from such jesting”. Oh, really?
