Sacred Grounds Show #21 - A salute to the Summer of Love. A very special show in which I tried to recreate the way FM Radio used to sound back when it was known as Progressive and Underground Radio. It was performed live as deejay Rusty Pipes at Sacred Grounds Coffee House for the 30th Anniversary on June 8, 1997. There are a couple minor repairs, but all the announcing and mixes are as they happened. This is the first hour and features The Beatles, Eric Burdon and the Animals, Fever Tree, Procol Harum, The Doors, Steppenwolf, Jimi Hendrix, Donovan, The Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane and the Yardbirds.
A performance of the introductory speech from V for Vendetta, live at Busboys and Poets February 8, 2017. The second poem is a rarely heard classic by John Clare, whose poetry was referenced in a Christopher Hitchens book I recently read and thankfully checked out. Recorded from a slightly different vantage point, so sound quality on this piece is better than usual. Enjoy!
A delightful comedic break form reality, performed live at Bus Boys & Poets November 23, the day before Thanksgiving. Featuring "Thanksgiving Play-by-Play" a short piece originally written for the Trivia stand-up challenge at the DC Improv. Bonus piece is an ancient, and incredibly silly one, "The Incredible Phizgink" co-starring host Dwayne B as Matt Hattor.
