Best of R8B on 1150AM from January 25th, 2008 with Jonathan Kochmer of Two Loons For Tea

In January of 2008, Jonathan Kochmer was half of the band Two Loons For Tea and the owner and operator of Sarathan Records, our sponsor for the month of February. To kick off this collaboration we were all set to have Two Loons For Tea as our guests live in the studio but at the last minute Sarah Scott, the other half of the band, came up ill with a nasty bug so it was Jonathan and their tracks and IT WAS GREAT! Of course, Sarah was missed but it was good to go deep with Mr. Kochmer, or as he was once known “Little Johnny Nightmare”.

Best of R8B on 1150AM from September 27th, 2007 with Sandman:The Rappin’ Cowboy & Paul Addis

Chris Sand aka Sandman: The Rappin’ Cowboy is a long time friend of the show. Paul Addis was a prankster provocateur who was accused of prematurely burning down the man at Burning Man 2007. Sandman showed up at the station with a camera crew. Paul showed up, in the spirit of Hunter S. Thompson, with some very real looking guns. It was a weird show.

Paul threw himself under a BART train in San Francisco in October of 2012. Sandman, as of this posting, is still with us.

Best of R8B on 1150AM from July 19th, 2007 with Jenny Jenkins & Michael Zapruder of

On July 19th, 2007 longtime friend of the show Jenny Jenkins was our musical guest. We were also joined by musician and Pandora founder Michael Zapruder  for a discussion of the legalities of internet broadcasting.

It’s kind of amazing that 7 years ago Pandora was considered an indie.

Best of R8B on 1150AM from June 28, 2007 with Kym Tuvim & Rae Dawn Chong

This is the first broadcast of Radio8Ball on Alternative Talk 1150 AM.

Having already spent 9 years on the air at KAOS in Olympia, Andras Jones added  a second weekly  R8B broadcast in Seattle on June 28th, 2007.

This version of The Pop Oracle featured more guests, a tighter schedule, and a divination format where the musical guests would often call in and assist in the interpretation of their recorded songs, as opposed to appearing live as they always did on KAOS. The songs were placed on a CD and the person asking the question would pick a number between 1 and 8, after which that numbered song on the CD would be played.

The show still featured live guests and this first one had  singer-songwriter Kym Tuvim in the studio, and a call-in from regular Radio8Ball contributor, Rae Dawn Chong.
