1:08:18 – Has 2017 seemed just a little quiet so far for the podcast? Fear not… you may just need earplugs for this one! We crank those guitar amps up (yeah, yeah…definitely past “11”) & bring the show back in full swing as we dedicate this episode to the band behind the podcast! Yes, for this one we pay tribute to the legacy of The Gunk U.K.. Hear from friends, podcast peers, ex-roadies, punk rock mail carriers, pub owners, disgruntled recording engineers, and (of course) the band themselves as we take you on a wild journey into the world of The Gunk U.K.! The full story is disclosed about the band who dared to shun the establishment and take what was rightfully theirs: a good pint of ale at the pub for their sweaty performance! There is also the hint that for the proper listening expeience, you should play this episode at 45 RPM (& at that max volume)! And to top everything off…we take you on a seasonal adventure, give you a stellar concert review, and throw in all the great music to boot! What more could you possibly want from a podcast? Cheers!

A special note should be made that you may hear a companion episode to this one on Static Radio right here. Also, please share the love and listen to some of our favorite podcasts at: Onsug, Static Radio, & Insignificast!

38:50 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I will be presenting the audio of a cassette tape from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to digitize more of my archives.

Another episode of my college radio show, Anything But Monday, with my co-host Mad Mike. There’s no date on the tape, but I estimate it to be from 3/17/86. Mike reads an article about celebrity salaries from the March 10, 1986 People Magazine. We also play the first episode of “Sounds of the Commons”.

ons1239_300 (18:41) Host Jimbo provides an addendum to the previous Central because he’s an idiot and forgot to add PQ Ribber’s excellent contribution when presented with it in a timely manner! (No, Jimbo does not “have it in” for the Ribber!)

Jimbo apologizes to PQ and vows to make it up somehow!

49:24 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I will be presenting the audio of a cassette tape from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to digitize more of my archives.

It was my first time back to the World Trade Center area since 9/11. I started off in lower Manhattan, and walked up along the Hudson River, to the World Financial Center, still being repaired. Later in the tape, I explore classic video game arcades in Times Square – visiting Laser Park and Broadway City Arcade – and talking about many other now long-lost landmarks of the area. Also on the tape are ambient sounds of commuting, notes on my Obliviana project (which would come to an end a year later), and much more… Recorded Feb 1-4, 2002.
