The Rampler. August 14, 2008 to October 10, 2009. 422 days. (March 13, 2009 is the midpoint, 211 days in.)

Remembering “The Rampler” with the first, middle, and last 5 minute segments of the show… The first 5 minutes of “The Rampler #1″ from August 14, 2008. The middle 5 minutes of The Rampler recordings from March 13, 2009 (from “The Rampler #233″). And the last 5 minutes of “The Rampler on WFMU – Episode 16 – Night in Motion” from October 10, 2009.

In 2008, after 5 years of doing The Overnightscape, I was looking for a new method of doing the show that would take less time and effort. This experiment in field recording became “The Rampler”, and it was such a different experience, I took it in a whole new direction. It very quickly grew in popularity, largely due to my involvement in the “Andy Kaufman Lives” phenomenon. This led to an opportunity to bring the show to a real radio station – WFMU. But as 2009 wore on, the show’s popularity (at least as I perceived it) diminished, and the pressures of being on the “real” radio took away some of the spirit of spontaneity that the show had in its early months. And then… WFMU canceled the show. A little over a year after it had begun, The Rampler was finished.

I chose to continue my Internet radio recordings here on “The Overnightscape Underground” (which has been going great), and drop “The Rampler” name. While it is a good name, and I had a blast doing it, the name “The Rampler” is associated with energy and vibes that I would rather put behind me.

But what a wild ride it was!! This 15-minute audio piece is a brief encapsulation of the whole experience… but it’s all available for you to listen to…

396 episodes (19 days of audio):

367 of “The Rampler” (regular numbered episodes)

19 of “The Rampler on WFMU” (broadcast on 91.1 FM)

5 of “The Rampler on the Airwaves” (radio practice sessions)

4 of “The Rampler Special”

1 of “Beneath The Rampler on WFMU”

Get it all on the Frank Nora Archive. And most of it is also here on The Overnightscape Underground site, just use the search box on the right.
