Due to lack of time, I decided to broadcast the entire Ray Felix interview, warts and all. It’s not as professional sounding as I hoped, but it’s better than not airing. You can tune in tonight, Wed. Nov 2nd, 2022, 7-8pm EST on whcsradio.com.

ICFTR promotes indie comic creators, film makers, and writers while also covering the latest in sci-fi, horror and comic book entertainment. Mark is also working on his own comic. We had a blast last time I interviewed him, so he’s coming back. Mark’s show was recorded in the studio at Grindhouse Radio.

Podtales (Oct 2019)

Let’s take a few months back to October 2019. Only a few months before Coronavirus came along and ruined everyone’s plans.

Cambridge, Massachusetts was where the first annual Podtales con took place. Podtales was an event created for anyone interested in Podcasting. The focus was on storytelling. Think back to the days before television, when radio ruled. From the 1920s to the 1950s, radio was the main source of entertainment for American families. Listeners tuned in to various dramas, comedies, soap operas, sci-fi, and other creative genres. With the current rise of podcasting, people are creating new audio worlds, straight from their living rooms to yours.

Admission inside Lesley University was free, coinciding with the annual MICE Expo, which was celebrating next door with it’s own tenth anniversary. Most of the Podtale vendors were from the Boston area, with a few traveling as far as the U.K.

Many of the fictional podcasters focused on fantasy, Sci-fi, and horror. One such program was The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program. Another one was The Post-Medidian Radio Players.

One podcast was a political parody, making fun of Trump by reading The Mueller Report: A Radio Dramatization.

Of course, since the pandemic, Podtales 2020 doesn’t look possible. It’s partner, MICE Expo is already cancelled. Hopefully Podtales will continue where it left off in 2021. Meantime, if you’re already bored of Netflix, check out some of the podcasts from the 2019 Podtales exhibitors.

Repeat: Interview W/ Diane Noomin, Jamie Hernandez and E.J. Barnes on WHCSradio.org

Another busy week. Just taking a quick break to tell everyone about my radio show. It’s on every Friday on WHCSradio.org from 1-2pm EST (NYC time). It’s where I interview pros from the comic book industry. You can also listen to the radio show on WHCSradio’s channel on Spotify.

Last week I had on Marc Torres, radio station and podcast host of It Came From The Radio. Good times. This week, Friday Nov. 22, 2019, will be a repeat of some interviews previously broadcast. Reason for the repeat is that there was some snafus during the original episode. Hopefully the repeat should fix everything.

Bear it mind, the interviews with Diane Noomin and Jamie Hernandez weren’t the greatest. These were on the spot interviews, and I didn’t have time to properly prepare any researched questions. So that’s on me. However, Diane and Jamie were extremely kind enough to consent to these interviews. Especially since they are both legends in the underground/alternative comic book scene.

The last interview with E.J. Barnes, Cambridge based historical cartoonist, fared better. All three of these interviews were conducted during the weekend of MICE 2019. The timing was perfect, since it was MICE’s 10th anniversary. Next door to MICE was the first annual Podtales convention. Both of these cons took place at Lesley University.

So due to tomorrow, streaming live. Other cartoonists and other pros to be be announced! There will be no episodes during Thanksgiving weekend, but on Dec. 6th, Boston cartoonist Maria Photinakis will be be in the studio live.

A big thanks to everyone involved.

It Came From The Radio – Podcast Interview

Back in June, I traveled to the Nassau County section of Long Island, NY to do a podcast interview for It Came From The Radio. The host was Mark Torres, who’s been doing the show on and off for about ten years. Currently the podcast is recorded at local station Grindhouse Radio, GHR for short. Both It Came From The Radio and Grindhouse Radio focus on all aspects of pop culture. Guests range is from indie to the well established.

This wasn’t my first time being interviewed on the radio. Back in 2010 I was on WVOX in Westchester, NY. For this recent broadcast, I show up on time, despite a snafu with my GPS. Have to say, I was very impressed with the vibe and decor of Grindhouse Radio. The staff was professional, yet warm and friendly.

As we were recording the program, the show was on Facebook Live. We discussed a range of subjects, ranging from recent film releases, The Avengers (comic & film, not the Punk band), Spice Girls and of course, my own work. My cat Squeaky, the basis of my latest comic had just passed away back in June, so we briefly discussed that. Mark was an awesome host. In all I had a really good time. Probably a better experience than when I was in Westchester nine years ago.

It Came From The Radio can be heard in multiple formats, such as iTunes, I Heart Radio, Overcast, Pocket Cast, Breaker, Google Podcast, Radio Public, Podbean, Spotify, PlayerFM, Soundcloud, Acast, Castbox, TuneIn, Stitcher, Podmust, Luminary, Blubrry, Mixcloud, or Google Play pages. There’s also an embedded player on the It Came From The Radio blog itself. You can also check out Beyond The Dawn Studios.

Thanks to both Mark from It Came From The Radio and GHR for having me.
