The Cask of Amontillado w/ Miss Rikki!
(Featuring a special Halloween Spook-tacular airing of a How’s It Named? rendition of Basil Rathbone’s reading of the Edgar Allen Poe classic! Originally broadcast on KPSU on 22 October 2011, and re-aired in 2015.)
Playlist & Footnotes:
How’s It Named? dates back to my appearance on What’s This Called? in 2008, when I guested on his show and came up with this idea that our shows, combined, would take on this name. Then, as time when it, it became the name I used when I was doing an experimental set of music, which is what appears on today’s show.
This time, I’m not only backed by new KPSU DJ Miss Rikki, who has a great mind for this sort of thing when Ricardo Wang suggested coverage, but have added to all of this a layer of Halloween Spook-tacular, by remixing Basil Rathbone’s rendition of The Cask of Amontillado for this particular program. You can check out Miss Rikki on her new program, Closet Radio, which is at 5 PM on Saturdays, and rounds out the KPSU weekend line-up.
She and I collaborated on the selections for this show, and I think it came out rather nicely, minus the technical issues that we suffered from. Plus, this has an actual element of creepy to it, which is missing from the Spooktacular shows I’ve done this year. I think Miss Rikki will be joining us often in the future, so hopefully there will be more wonderful shows like this.
