Grote is my new hero. Excellent post, Jason.

Agreed!  David's post is everything that's wrong with the internet, and the kind of thing I come here to avoid.  Blech.
Your vigor for life appalls me.

You guys are so sweet!

Basically, the project was doomed from the start, because it takes about 50-60 hours of labor to produce an hour of radio theater (this is why what Clay Pigeon does is even more impressive than it seems). We thought we could fill the gap with listener submissions, live in-studios with our friends in the experimental theater world, and archival stuff from the WFMU library, PennSound, and Ubu.com. It wound up being mostly archival stuff, because most of the listener submissions were terrible (and not even fun-terrible in that Irwin/Kenny G way) and even when our friends made radio-friendly work it was really difficult to wrangle them. Ultimately this reliance on archival material made our show redundant with the 24/7 Ubu stream, and there are only a few one-hour slots on the schedule. There is still lots of love between WFMU and me, and we have an open invitation to come back, or reinvent the show as a podcast or webstream, but it was an incredible amount of work, and Karinne moved away anyway.

Here's what she's doing now, incidentally:

I might try and do a music show someday. Every WFMU DJ works hard, even if their thing is not your (or my) thing, but the idea of showing up an hour or two early and sifting through the New Bin seems preferable to spending 20 hours a week trawling for radio plays.

Oh, good heavens. I didn’t realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the O’Connor family.

I don't understand why this is true.  If only this board had an Internet-reviewed math professor to help me crunch the numbers!
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

I don't know what you're asking for, Jason G, but yes, I will find a way to make it work.

Someone else to do the Acousmatic Theater Hour? Unless you mean Buffcoat.

It's ok, actually my name is Jason Grote as well.  It's a funny coincidence.


My question was about why 20 was more than 2.

Nobody tell Greg Proops.

Marc gave special mention to the live show and Tom on today's Brian Posehn episode.  I'm really eager to hear it, he didn't indicate when it might go up though.

My question was about why 20 was more than 2.

The answer is obviously 37.

I just knew it, as young as 3 or 4.
