"IT'S ELECTRIFYING!" I'll write more about this later, but today I really need to direct your attention to Aaron Neathery's Electromatic Radio blog. A still-bubbling-under phenom, Neathery's radio show is a half-hour blend of knockabout sci-fi comedy and cool obscuro pop tracks (Klaatu and the Bonzo Dog Band have had tracks featured in more than one episode) EMR is currently running on a handful of small FM stations across the country – with a promise of podcasting in the vague future. Aaron has thoughtfully provided me with most of the finished episodes (twenty shows in all), and I'm hooked. The show's a must-sample for lovers of Firesign Theatre, Third Banana movie shorts and old pop-rock tracks they never ever play on the radio. EMR's blog even contains the show's first episode for your listening pleasure (it's midway down the June 16th entry), so why not check it out?
