Hey everyone. Life has been busy. However, on Friday, Nov. 15th, 2019 from 1-2pm EST live, I will have my radio show. This week the guest is Mark Torres, the host of It Came From The Radio. It Came From The Radio is a podcast and radio program can be heard in 23 outlets and counting. I’ll ask him a few questions about his show, duties, etc. So tune in. Last week I had local cartoonist Mindy Indy, who just had a very successful Kickstarter campaign for her comic. Down the line I’ll re-broadcast the short interviews I had with Diane Noomin, Jamie Hernandez and historical cartoonist E.J. Barnes. Those interviews were done when I visited MICE during their 10th anniversary. On Dec. 6th, I’ll have Boston cartoonist Maria Photinakis on the show. Other past guests included Dave Fox, Justin Melkmann, and Danielle Draik. Interviewing other cartoonists and artists has been a learning experience. My goal after the radio show wraps up, is to post  an archive of these interviews online. Website to be determined, most likely Soundcloud. Stay tuned for any forthcoming announcements.

Meantime, check out my show live, on WHCSradio.org. Broadcast live every Friday except for holidays until end of December.

So this just in. In addition to everything else I’ve been doing, I began a radio show. The focus is on comic book creators. Artists, writers, and other creatives. You can stream it live from WHCSradio.org. You can tune in every Friday from 1-2pm until further notice.

The show started on September 27th, with comic book artist, illustrator and musician (he has the Punk band Dead On A Friday) Dave Fox as the first guest. The second episode was aired on Oct. 4th with up and coming comic artist and illustration Squiddy Sprinkle. Today I interviewed Justin Melkmann, another comic artist and musician, who is the co-founder of the NYC Punk band WWIX, and also current member of Recreational Outrage.

I’ll be your host, interviewing all comic book pros. The next interview scheduled on October 26th is Danielle Draik, comic book artist, zine maker, painter and sculptor. On Nov. 8th we have comic book artist and illustrator Mindy Indy, who is having a successful Kickstarter.

The list of guest will be updated as the radio program continues. Eventually these interviews will be archived and posted online. So tune in again starting Oct. 26th.

Remember: Support your local cartoonist!

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.

I’m going to be part of a radio special tomorrow night! My 15 minutes of fame will be via quickie phone interview.

Back in the early summer, I was interviewed on a radio program, “The Phoenix Perspective.” Unfortunately, the show is no more. However, there is going to be a reunion special tomorrow night. A review and update on what’s been going on since.

Here’s a blog post about the first interview: https://witchesbrewpress.wordpress.com/2010/05/18/radio-scratch/

Tomorrow night will be a Phoenix reunion special.
Tune in 12:30pm EST, WVOX 1460AM

This past weekend I was interviewed for a local radio program. The show was titled The Phoenix Perspective, broadcast on WVOX.com based in the Westchester area of New York.

I decided to head into the Metro North area early to avoid rushing. The result was arriving into Larchmont a wee bit too early. Since there was some time to kill, I walked around town a bit. Came across this upscale child clothing store.

A step closer to the store window and there was live chickens being used as a store window display. A local woman strolling around with her grandchildren also gathered around. As the woman was about to point out the chickens to her other female friend, one of the birds turned around and pooped in fill view of everyone.

“So that’s what downtown Larchmont has become” replied the woman, “chickens shitting in windows.” With that being said, Grandma and crew walked away slurping on their ice creams cones.

As I took a few more pics of these chickens with my cellphone camera, couldn’t help but notice something. One of these chickens had dirt trapped within its wings. So if this one bird has crud smeared in its feathers, imagine other poultry on a commercial mass production farm.

Soon it was time to head to the radio station. After again arriving ridiculously early, I met up with the radio host herself, Phoenix, her friend Jaye and radio announcer Chuck. Before going on the air, me Phoenix and Jaye sat around consuming Entenmann donuts and coffee. Jaye took some pre-show pics, which you can see here. As for me, I was still nervous about being interviewed live on air. I’ve done interviews before, but usually it would be for some podcast which I would never hear afterwards. Out of sight, out of mind I suppose.

The interview itself went pretty smooth. Me and Phoenix chatted about my two self-published titles, Psycho Bunny and Babalon Babes. Also plugged this book I did about five illustrations for, Tales of Woe. If all goes well, Tales of Woe should be released sometime this summer. Pre-sales for the book are now up on Barnes & Noble, Powerhouse Books and Amazon.com.

Before coming on the show, I took a friend’s advice about not taking the interview too seriously. Even Phoenix herself said it was about hanging out, talking and whatnot. Phoenix herself is a very nice person. We talked about a few different things like female cartoonists, sub-cultural stuff, etc. For the record, I’m no expert about all of this so-called ‘counter culture’ subject matter. Never claimed to be. Just know what I like. Let’s just say you won’t catch me in front of the TV anticipating Dancing With The Stars.

After the show was over, Phoenix was nice enough to drive me back to the city. Arriving back in Queens, I was embarrassed to find the Soul Train chugging on next door. Apparently my next door neighbors were ass enough to throw a loud house party, continuing past 3am. Despite this, it was still a fun night.
