The Rise of The Pop Oracle
Nearly twenty years in the making, Radio8Ball is on the verge of being more fully realized than ever this fall.
Beginning in SEPTEMBER we will be releasing a daily podcast for Feral Audio. Every day we’ll drop one musical divination. The first batch is from The Radio8Vault and includes guests like Tig Notaro, Pamela Adlon, John Trudell, Jimmy Webb, Ralph Metzner, Ethan Gold, Natasha Legerro, Anya Marina, Lili Haydn, Recess Monkey and Dino Stamatopoulos.
Dino asked a killer question on May 5th, 2012 when he Skyped into a Radio8Ball Show we did at The Olympia Music Awards at The Capitol Theater. It’s going to be our first podcast, along with his answer from Sandman: The Rappin’ Cowboy aka Chris Sand.
That episode from the vault will be followed by our first new Pop Oracle for Feral, featuring Dino as the musical guest performing songs from his band Sorry About Everything. We’ll be recording this episode on August 8th at Starburns Industries in Burbank.
The songs Dino records on the show on August 8, 2017 will go into the new R8B App along with about a thousand other tracks recorded on Radio8Ball over the years and when the App is available in September (with our new website) you’ll be able to engage The Pop Oracle the way I’ve wanted you to for a long time. Playing and working with it while it’s in development has been a real joy. So much great music. It’s full of stars!
Starburns Industries produces “Rick & Morty” and “Harmon Quest” and “Harmontown” and they did the Charlie Kaufman film “Anomalisa” and a bunch of other great stuff. They’re smart and funny and fucked up and angry and I have loved them as a fan for years. The idea of doing Radio8Ball down the hall from where Louis CK and Albert Brooks are collaborating with Dino on a new animated series, and the Yacht Rock guys are doing their own podcast, and so much other cool stuff I don’t even know about yet is happening, well, it feels like I’m going to work at the Abbey Road of comedy.
If you’ve been following along all these years, I hope you’ll hang on for the ride.
Please join our PATREON campaign. For $8 a month you will be entered in a monthly drawing to ask a question on the show (and get other cool stuff). As of this writing we have two subscribers so your odds of being chosen to ask a question at one of the three shows we’ll be taping on the 8th, 9th and 10th of this month are pretty good. The first podcasts are the ones people always check out so if you’ve got something powerful to share now’s your chance.
Thank you for your Attention and your INtentions.
