It’s day 4 of the Great Podcast Releasathon 2012!(tm), and this is episode 88, Prong and Spittle, featuring Bobobobobob on Sequential Circuits Prophet synthesizer, William Davis on electric kazoo through Chaos Pad, Paul Cane on ukelele through guitar pedals, and myself on Boss RC-50 Looper, SK-1, bent sleep machine, and bent audio book. Prong and Spittle was the 11th episode of the WRVU era of Theatre Intangible, recorded April 6th 2008. Listening to this gets me nostalgic for the early WRVU crew. William Davis and Paul Cain have since moved away from Nashville. [Update 2012-07-23. Paul tells me he’s back in Nashville!] Bobobobobob has been keeping busy refinishing his house after the 2010 flood, but he tells me the repairs are almost complete. I hope to have him on again soon! There’s nothing quite so wonderful as a well-tempered 70’s analog synth.

Check back tomorrow for a WIDB-era episode in which we spoofed a Christian call in show.

In this episode:

  • THEATRE INTANGIBLE breaks into WRVU for one last in-station show!
  • A SHOCKING REVELATION about the SALE OF WRVU!
  • A VSC BOARD MEMBER calls the COPS!
  • CODY BOTTOMS takes his clothes off for the webcam!
  • Trainee TERRY finds his broadcast voice!

THEATRE INTANGIBLE celebrates our 50th podcast by performing LIVE from our original home 91.1 WRVU fm on the campus of Vanderbilt University. As you might remember, I was kicked off of WRVU and permanently banned from the station. Luckily, my door key scan card still works. I’m joined Theatre Intangible’s first guest ever Cody Bottoms (THE MANPOWER), early collaborator William Davis (OH NO IT’S HOWARD), and ex-host of the also-banned WRVU show GET UP STAND UP Mark Anundson.

Things start off smoothly with calls from champion wrestler Jocephus The Shelby Street Brawler and WRVU’s POCKET NINJAS’ host Amanda Tucker. Things get a bit out of hand when Mark busts out the alcohol, we get a call from VSC Board Member Dick Shell, and a dj trainee hiding in the control booth becomes our “reluctant” guest. We barricade the door with the station couch and hunker down for an all-out siege.

We discuss VSC president Chris Carroll, Director of Student Media Jim Hayes, and since-resigned student general manager Mikil Taylor. Board member Dick Shell calls to complain and lets slip a shocking revelation about the sale of WRVU that you are most definitely NOT going to like.

Featuring call-ins by T.I. participants pimpdaddysupreme, Chris Rauh (Arclyte), Chris Murray and Craig Schenker (Square People), and Joseph Hudson (Dave Cloud). More calls from officer MacBeth, Officer Fritz, Hostage Negotiator Lieutenant McKinley, Amanda Tucker, Tiffany, Kurt, and trainee Terry’s mother Misty.

With music by T.I. participants Tim Kaiser, Ken Soper, Strotter Inst., Leslie Keffer, Anthony William Herndon, DaveX, pimpdaddysupreme, Lawrence Crow, Mark Anundson, and WORLD PREMIERE tracks by Square People Jazz Maturity and Lylas recorded exclusively for Theatre Intangible!

I, Phone, Theatre Intangible

Maybe it’s because I cracked my iPhone screen today. Maybe it’s because of that viral video with the band Atomic Tom playing an all-iPhone song on a New York subway. Whatever the reason, tonight’s episode is podcast 40, “I, Phone,” an improv made entirely with iPhones, recorded live at the WRVU studios on April 26th, 2009. That’s right, folks. We did it a year and a half ago.

Suck it, Atomic Tom!

Our iPhone show features six performers playing apps such as Noise.io, RJDJ, Balls, The Zombietron, Bloom, the Thereminator, Mobile Synth, Remix DJ: Speak EZ, Ocarina, Bebot, voicemails, and more.  William Davis from Oh No It’s Howard, his friend Brian Zimmerman, Ryan Adams from Sunshine Brothers and Sisters, pimpdaddysupreme, Mara Bissell (DJ Irony on WRVU’s Nerd Pron and Pocket Ninjas), and myself make one hour of pure iPhone goodness. Check out the cool things the creator of Remix DJ: Speak EZ had to say about the show!
