The Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors (#243) (852)

Xeres and I decided that we needed to get away from it all, for a while. We arrive at Big Rock Candy Mountain, a fantastic campground with a number of odd features, including a creek near an ocean beach with lots of hiking in tropical and pine forests. Occasional guests wander in, we read some poetry and short stories, offer some PSAs about camping, and we have our Short Wave Radio to tune in music and The Weather Computer.

It’s The Great Outdoors. Sit around the campfire, and stay a spell.

Enjoy!

The Horror of Haunted Houses

The Horror of Haunted Houses (#240) (849)

After getting lost in the Mid-Valley on my way home from a show, I stumble upon a pair of “Haunted Houses,” and have to endure these ridiculous experiences.

Fortunately, I was allowed to crack wise to help me get through the night. Radio Riffing on two ridiculous horror classics, for those who enjoy a little comedy with their weirdness.

Enjoy!

The Cave of Night

The Cave of Night (#231) (840)

Are we feeling isolated, stuck in places we’d rather not be… or, at least, we want everyone to believe that? Both a metaphor and something very real, we’ve all entered the Cave of Night, and the music around us is starting to reflect our state of mind.

It’s a New Year’s Eve story (sort of), about having to spend this time alone, wanting to get away, and reflecting on strange occurrences around us. We close with a Cookie Recipe and some Richard Brautigan, of course.

Enjoy!

Love Can’t Buy You Money (Retrocast)

Not A True Statement
Not A True Statement

Love Can’t Buy You Money (Retrocast)
(Featuring a variety of audio media centering around a bullshit capitalist symbol.  Originally aired 10 September 2010.)

(Here’s a Valentine’s Day Retrocast. Happy Holidays.)

We have to deal with it every day: the capitalist backbone of our culture. It infiltrates nearly every aspect of our lives, and is the focus of some much energy in this world that it is on par with an addiction for some. We spend our days and nights toiling in jobs just to acquire a small amount of it, and spend the rest of the time pouring it into everything that matters: family, relationships, hobbies, and most strangely, survival. We are so concerned with it as a culture that it has become one of the ultimate rock and roll cliches: Gimme Some Money.

For this show, I decided to present all media about money. Rich, poor, new and old, everything in this show centers around cash in one form or another. At first I was initially concerned with taking on this theme, as I wasn’t quite sure if I could fill up a whole show. However, when all was said and done, I had to cut quite a few tracks, and found myself considering how I can probably stretch this out to a multi-part epic. While this might be all I can handle for the time being, it was good to know that this will be an inexhaustible well for ideas.

This show has a couple of firsts working for it. This was the first show that fully utilized the new, two-hour format that will be the usual presentation for Blasphuphmus Radio from here on out. While the show has been “officially” two hours for a number of weeks now, I have been out of town for most of that time, and when I was in town, had to catch up on shows I had fallen behind on. (Hence, the five hour radio event last week, with three new shows in a row.) With all the confusion and weirdness out of the way, this was the first time I could sit down and do a two-hour show that wasn’t an exception. It was just like old times, and while I won’t be using all two hours every week (I will occasionally fill that time with retrocasts), it is fun to have that time available for my use.

It is also one of the first shows that I fully utilized the new equipment that was installed at KPSU. While many DJs are very particular about what they can and can’t use on the air, I have found myself really enjoying the new digital toys that are available to make my show with. While I will never give up using turntables, or even cassettes, it is cool to have computers, iPods, and high-tech CD players at my disposal, too. This show has brought together a number of media sources, all on the fly, to present a pretty awesome show, and I was happy to see what the new equipment can do. Hopefully this will start to make my show even better, as time goes one.

But mostly, I was happy to fit Ray Charles and The Android Sisters into the same radio show. Hell yeah.

Enjoy!

A Sadgasm New Year’s / New Tears Special! [2019 Edition] (#179)

A Sadgasm New Year’s / New Tears Special! [2019 Edition] (#179)

The only tradition we really have on this show is very simple: we invite the gentlemen of Sadgasm over to offer relationship advice. It’s a fun tradition that has led to some excellent outcomes, and with that in mind, we offer a down-home version of that same idea, Live from the Lava Lamp Lounge.

We offer an advance peek at two tracks from the upcoming Ramen 2.0 (out in February), and we talk about what the band has been up to. Then, we answer questions, and do our best to avoid turning the show into a Star Wars podcast.

Enjoy!

‘Tis The Season To Be Merry (#177)

What? It’s already the 10th? Holy crap! I’m so far behind on my shopping, and there’s still decorating to do. I don’t think the travel plans are final yet, either. Damn. Do we have the Holiday Playlist ready? Ahhhhhhh! How are we gonna finish everything in time?

Fortunately, we have a couple hours at our disposal to focus on getting ready, and today’s show is all about preparing for the holidays: getting the house ready, preparing that meal, making wreathes, and all the other things that we need to get ready for an excellent holiday season. There’s a few live mash-up mixes, a long traditional DJ set, and all sorts of Holiday Goodies that I can’t wait for you to hear!

Our next MVM is on Christmas Eve, and I’m not quite sure what we’re doing yet. I may read some holiday ghost stories… who knows?

Regardless, I’m quite proud of this one I hope you like it, too.

Enjoy!

Preparing For The Holidays (#176)

Preparing For The Holidays (#176)

It’s the week of Thanksgiving, and of course, I’m busy and hell, trying to get everything ready for the next few months. There’s tons going on, and we always feel like we’re behind. Are we ready for all of this? I hope so.

To that end: I break in the new home-studio, and play a bunch of new ./ old stuff that has been on my mind. There’s a drone mash-up, a noise mash-up, and an old-fashioned DJ set, plus all sorts of Mini-Mutations, too. It’s a fun show, and I hope you enjoy it too.

Don’t let the family get to you too much. Enjoy this podcast for a spell, and get your mind off the holiday season.

Enjoy!

The Land of The Lost (#175)

The Land of The Lost (#175)

As the season (and my own life) changes, so does Mid-Valley Mutations. It is with this program that we announce a new direction, new ideas, and a new future, while simultaneously, beginning our journey through a dark period in our annual cycle: when rain, clouds, and short days dominate our every moment.

First, the changes: Mid-Valley Mutations will now take on the form of a podcast-only show. We are leaving KMUZ on good terms; in fact, a new show hosted by me will launch on KMUZ soon. But this show is becoming different, finding a new voice, and featuring different kinds of content that need more production and looser rules than I have at KMUZ, and for the time being, the world of podcasting fits the show much better. The Lava Lamp Lounge now has a whole slew of new gear, and will be re-builidng over the winter. We hope to offer you the same show you’ve always enjoyed, but in a new home that fits us much, much better.

We are moving the show to Tuesdays as a result of the change, and we are launching Season 2 of WTBC Radio, where a lot of the live and interview content that wound up on this show will now live. These programs will alternate, every other week, with a few exceptions throughout the year, giving me a chance to breath a little, and return to work that I miss and really love. So, please, re-subscribe to WTBC, and watch for new shows there, soon.

I should mention that, while I have your attention, that if you want to make a donation to help out Heather of Juice Machine, here is the link. Juice Machine are dear friends of the show, and really could use your help. Please, donate as much as you can. Thank you.

For now, here’s a show about wallowing in the desolation that is around us, here on this planet. It would be great if travelers from a distant star could come and save us, as the rats swarm and try to destroy what is left of our world. But sadly, that is just a dream, right?

This one has a live Mini-Mutations jam at the end, so please, stay tuned for that.

Are you ready to enter the Land of The Lost?

What was aired on KMUZ that evening is what you can hear in place of this show. But what it is, and if you should listen to it, is not for me to say. Some people thing something was unleashed that evening.

The End of Fake Noose (Ghost Stories 2019 Part 5) (#173)

It’s always nice to visit with friends when you’re having a party like this, at to wrap up our Holiday broadcasts this month, we have the incomparable DJ Victrola, joining us to help clean up the studio, and catch up regrading all things spooky.

We play lots of music and stories relating to ghosts and All Soul’s Day, and we check in with her about her program, and how you can hear it now. I love spending time with DJ Victrola, and this is an excellent and casual show that was a ton of fun.

We close with the timely, “Nov. 1st,” by Crackerbash, a song I listen to every year on Nov. 1st, for as long as I’ve known about this song.

We’re getting ready for that OTHER holiday season, so stay tuned.

Enjoy!

The Last Radio Station On The Left (Ghost Stories 2019 Part 4) (#172)

The Last Radio Station On The Left (Ghost Stories 2019 Part 4) (#172)

Join us for a very cool and rare treat: a re-creation of an electronic music radio program from the late ’80s and early ’90s, which was infamous for their Halloween Shows! Brian Magill is no stranger to our show, and has been making electronic music since the early ’80’s. As part of this work, Brian eventually hosted a radio program at KLCC, Another Green World, as part of their attempt to cater to the interests of electronic music fans and artists, that was on the rise.

However, once a year – on or near Halloween – Another Green World would get… weird. Long sound collages and other forms of musique concrete would take over their broadcasts, often the last things that would air on the station before it would go off the air for the night. The show quickly became infamous, and casual listeners would think something was wrong with the radio. Instead, they were merely catching a glimpse into the musical work that Brian and his co-host, Nathan Griffith, would create, in the moment, on the air.

Tonight’s show is an effort to recreate Another Green World as best as we can, just in time for the show to offer a typical Halloween show, as you might have heard almost 30 years ago. Brian brought in records from his collection, stuff that he would have played on the show then. I actually took a step back, and let him run the board; aside from an interview setting up the concept at the beginning, this is all Brian, and you get to hear something that no one else has heard in three decades.

In Hour 1, settle in for hearing what a typical episode of Another Green World might have been like 30 years ago. Then, strap in for Hour 2, where Brian takes us on a sound collage journey through his favorite artists, and what radio used to sound like.

Along the way, we get heavy doses of Fervent Torpor, AND a number of unreleased, unavailable, and previously unheard recordings by Brian from over the years. If you ever thought to yourself, “I bet that artist has a ton of other recordings I haven’t heard yet,” This is just the tip of the iceberg. Brian could have done two hours of his own unreleased material, which would have been as good as the stuff on his record, “1000 Years of Solitude.” Instead, you get to hear it in this show, tonight.

Shows like this are something special, and you cannot (and will not) hear stuff like this anywhere else. This is a very unique Halloween Performance / Broadcast, and it’s this kind of show that makes me excited to keep bringing you radio like this.

Enjoy!
