I’ll be on the air on WFMU tomorrow night

Apr 2, 2009 Author: frank | Filed under: Uncategorized

I will be on the air on WFMU for the second time, tomorrow night/Sat. morning (4/4/09) from 2:00 AM to 6:00 AM, New Jersey time. I will be filling in for “Zzzzzzero Hour with Bill Mac”.

You can listen over the radio airwaves in the NYC area on 91.1 FM. It is also broadcast on WXHD (90.1 FM) in Mount Hope, upstate New York. And of course, it will be streamed live at WFMU.org.

The interactive playlist will be active, where you can leave comments. Just go to WFMU.org when the show is on for a link to the playlist.

I do plan on taking phone calls at some point during the 4 hour show, as well.

Hope to see you all there!!!

Here is the page for The Rampler on WFMU. Once the show is complete, it will be archived here.

  • The 6th Anniversary of The Overnightscape.

    Mar 22, 2009 Author: frank | Filed under: Uncategorized

    Six years ago today, I had already done two “Beta” versions of The Overnightscape (on March 13, 2003 and March 20, 2003). On March 27, 2003, I did the very first official episode of the show… The Overnightscape #1 (hear it here).

    So, this Friday, March 27, 2009, will be the 6th Anniversary of The Overnightscape. But this year things are a little different…

    Doing The Overnightscape is very time-consuming. Often, I will spend an entire weekend working on the show. This became ingrained in my lifestyle and it has detracted from the rest of my life in many ways. This is coupled with the fact that even with all the effort, the show has only achieved a moderate success, in terms of audience and recognition.

    In light of this, last August I began an experiment to see if there would be a way to do The Overnightscape in a way that would not have such an impact on my life. Thus began The Rampler.

    The idea was to record in NYC during my walk back and forth from the Port Authority Bus Terminal to my job on 3rd Ave. The idea was to record and then release, with no post-production at all. The MP3 file recorded on the Edirol R-09 was the file that was released. All that would be needed would be to add tags to the MP3 file.

    So I started this experiment, and it took off in a way I never imagined. Whereas the show is essentially the same as The Overnightscape, The Rampler became an exciting new variation on the theme for me.

    In the seven months since The Rampler began, things have been changing. Slowly, I have been moving toward de-emphasising the studio aspect of my Internet radio show work. This was the original intent behind the development of The Rampler.

    But… the original idea was that at some point, once the experiment was proven a success, “The Rampler” name would be retired, and it would be renamed “The Overnightscape”… thus The Overnightscape would continue on in this new form, with less of an impact on my life. However, The Rampler became something very distinct and new and unique…

    So, The Rampler will remain The Rampler. This leaves the fate of  The Overnightscape somewhat uncertain. Certainly, I am not going to be doing The Overnightscape on a regular basis anymore. But I don’t know that it would need to be “shut down” either.

    Right now, I am in the middle of this whole process. I know it might be kind of a “clean break” to end The Overnightscape on the 6th Anniversary. But that sounds so… severe. Especially in light of the fact that The Overnightscape lives on more vital than ever as The Rampler!!

    So this is what I will be thinking about this week… exactly what to do with The Overnightscape.

    Ultimately, The Rampler IS The Overnightscape. Just in a slightly different form.

    I’m very excited about the further development of The Rampler… and I hope everyone comes along for the ride!!

  • The Motor Excursion Ruffians #2

    Dec 13, 2008 Author: frank | Filed under: Uncategorized

    I know I haven’t been doing too many episodes of The Overnightscape lately (more are coming soon)… but there’s a LOT of new stuff on The Overnightscape Underground One feature that I’m really excited about is “The Motor Excursion Ruffians #2″. It’s a road trip with my friend Peter down to Virginia, where we meet up with our friend Bryan. It was recorded on April 4-5, 2003 – right at the start of The Overnightscape (between episodes 4 and 5).

    The crazy thing is, this 9-part, 8.5 hour show has never been heard by anyone – until now! I don’t know why it took me so long, but after nearly 6 years, it is finally available for you to listen to!

    Here is Part 1. And you can find all 9 parts here.  Plus, here a photo gallery of pictures from the adventure.

  • Goodbye

    Aug 23, 2008 Author: Chris200 | Filed under: Uncategorized

    After being part of a so called community I must leave.

    For nearly 10 months I participated in an experiment.  As an experiment, I too realized as Keith Malley has that “all podcasters are assholes”.

    I will not stand for the behavior or the treatment that I did not deserve from this group.  The behavior and treatment simply mocks the values that this so called group or network claim to represent.

    I would gladly accept any apologies, but I simply do not see that happening.

    I have no apologies to offer, and no regrets for the time invested.  I foolishly thought my friendships were simply that, friendships.  Instead I ended up being a pawn in a mind game I did not create or appreciate.

    It simply is time to move on.

    Goodbye.
