AKASHICMONDO RODEO

Host: Milton Ragsdale
An investigation into abstract musical theory utilizing local iconography and collective myth. This show’s contention is that noisiness and experimental sound is an important force of resistance to the advanced capitalist regime which seems to insist that music is a commodity. The programming will consist of live recordings by important local/regional artists, sound collages, interviews, and spoken word.


tn_poudslogoTHE PIT OF ULTIMATE DARK SHADOWS

A show of darkness with a lot of heart, plenty of chuckles made both of metaphors and bad puns. As Dark Shadows lifted story lines from a zillion old books of the Gothic variety, what would it be like if they shared time with the current classics? And what if these newer characters could help them lift all the curses? (Contains intros delving into the writing process as well as information and commentary about the various programs and key players.)

Essentially a condensed Re-write from a particular point, to tie up loose ends and pair up everyone. Positive feedback, including laughter, can be sent to xoiscythe (at) hotmail.com (Send a message for the info to which episodes apply to the different characters if you only want those specific bits. It has gotten rather wildly Multi-fandom. Just leave a comment to the email address listed asking for which you’d like.)

So far the fandoms are: Dark Shadows, The Kids in The Hall, Clue (Wadsworth), The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, The Addams Family, Bewitched, The Munsters, Psycho, and cameos with Slimer, Norman Bates, Dr. “Hawkeye” Pierce, and hopefully in the future a large role with Doctor Who.

pitchbhamPITCH BHAM PODCAST

The Pitch Bham Podcast was born out of an age old soccer tradition: friends, in a living room, having a cold one, playing Fifa. Opinions get heated. Rehashing old memories brings back pride in the good ole days. Interviewing professionals to find out if you still have a shot. Wait. No. That was AFTER we started doing this for a podcast.

In every episode we discuss the latest soccer news. We get passionate about our teams. Payne, Adam, and Bree get down to the brass tax and give hard hitting, really respectful, almost fan girlish interviews with awesome professional players. Even though we’ve hit it big now in the Greater Birmingham Area, when it comes down to it we’re still  3 Friends, 1 living room, and some opinions about soccer.

UndercoverUNDERCOVER FOR THE CIA

Hear the stories of America’s best  agents doing Uncle Sam’s dirty work. These harrowing tales are  based on the “True Stories” of the men and women who have dedicated their lives to  keeping us safe from the dangerous ways of communism, extremist socialist liberals, and terrorists. Though the names have been changed to protect our heroes the stories have not been. These tales of treason have been plucked from the very pages of field reports and personal diaries of some of America’s greatest living heroes. You don’t want to miss a minute. These tales will shock and terrify . They are not for the feint of heart or the feeble bodied. Undercover for the CIA is sponsored by Agent Orange Cola. The taste of freedom since 1964 and  The Shhhh We’re NOT Spies, Travel Agency. Why book your travel online where it can be intercepted by a hostile operative, book with Shhh We’re Not Spies- They guarantee your safe arrival and  prompt delivery of support materials to over 570 hostile drop zones . Shhh We’re Not Spies also accepts vouchers from our partner agency Great Brittan’s  0-0 Go.


Mono Ubu LogoMONO UBU

After a year of Illuminati rituals we finally managed to get enough blood from an old god to complete a delta wave receiver . Using the forbidden secrets of blood magic we were able to tune into the harmonic frequency of time itself and what we discovered was amazing. For months we were only getting bits and pieces of transmissions from the past and future that were jumbled together. We tried making more sacrifices and using larger diodes but unfortunately there was just too much electromagnetic interference on the surface of the earth so we took a chance, snuck into China and stashed the delta wave receiver on a government satellite that launched just three weeks ago- Now, about once a week or so we are able to intercept a stable transmission from the year 3478, from a being called Zenicar 7.4.5. Who apparently is kind of a big deal- so it claims. In the future things don’t turn out very well for humanity but at least for now we get some kick ass programs. This particular show was designed to help the now defeated human race properly evolve into their new environment of servitude. Look for this and other programs by Zenicar 7.4.5 on the Monolith playlist.
