56:09 – In the course of recording this tribute to yesterday’s mega-news about the word of the year (the verb form of GIF), an important and disorienting insight flashed in my mind’s eye like the reflection of a neon gas station sign rippling across a puddle of spilled petrol on the pavement as the country radio station crackles from the office in the first moments after sunset on a warm and humid late summer evening. The insight being that the process of recording these wandering wonderings is not unlike the process of assembling an animated GIF. But then again, it’s not entirely the same either.

Beyond that, everything else remains for the listener to discover in due course.

1:04:33 – A couple of days ago it seemed there wouldn’t be a next episode of scottlo calling. It felt as if there was nothing left to talk about. And then curious things began to happen.

First there was a blog post from Radio Errols about receiving a recent news paper from Japan’s Kyodo news service via fax that led me to a cool old internet project.

Then while thinking about animated GIFs of exploding microwave ovens, I unexpectedly heard about the chance discovery that resulted from a Zagnut bar that melted in Percy Sinclair’s pocket.

And before you could “Stand clear and keep your eye on the ball” 64 minutes of audio presented itself in mp3 format for your listening enjoyment.

59:21 – Those who are willing and able to listen to this hour-long recording will get to hear how a Chinese knock-off of a classic Sony transistor radio came into my possession recently. The episode also features a few recordings of a local radio station that were picked up with said recorder. And finally there is my effort to describe what the terrestrial radio cross-casting ds106 radio assignment, as alluded to in the previous blog post, might entail.

1:19:08 – I hadn’t realized that my first podcast, Tokyo Calling, began eight years ago this month until I was recording the opening segment of my new podcast: scottlo calling.  It seems like a lifetime ago. And in many ways, it was.

So here I am in a new place with a new job and starting a new life and am compelled to again experiment with audio.

I’m afraid I don’t feel similarly compelled to write extensive show notes at present. It seems best to let listeners, if any, figure out what this is and what it’s about. I will however try to post relevant web links when appropriate.

The song played during the podcast was created by dlusionz and can be found on Sound Cloud and is titled Dreaming of the Middle East.

The book mentioned at a couple of points during the episode is “The Phenomenon of Man” and was written by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

This fourth and final installment of The Pro from Dover is part of an audio project that began in July. The three previous recordings were all released on The Overnightscape Underground. At the time there was a reason for not posting the audio through the Scottlo Radio Blog but for the life of me, I can’t now remember what the reason was.

Looking back, I remember the excitement I found in discovering a community of like-minded audio enthusiasts. I continue to enjoy listening to recordings put out by several of the ONSUG people and hope to be able to begain participating in P.Q. Ribber’s fun and awesome weekly Overnightscape Central program.

But as evidenced by this current recording which was recorded over a period of three months in three different continents, I don’t know whether or not I’ll be able to produce any audio with any degree of regularity. I’m finding that things remain up in the air.

As mentioned above, this will be the final Pro From Dover episode. The orginal premise to document a series of transitions was a bit muddled to begin with. And now that those transitions have been gotten trough, undocumented for the most part, there seems to be no point to continue under this label. I must confess, as a small satisfaction, that I was able to salvage enough audio from certain moments over this period to minimally fulfill the orginal premise.

Looking ahead, I continue to wonder what to do next on the web – with audio or otherwise. Personally, I’m really tired with the unscripted rambling that I’ve done for the past several years. Sometimes something listenable results but most times not so much. I think I’ve got a couple of pretty compelling project ideas. If I can pull something together, it will get posted here.

Until then, thanks for listening and please stand by.

45:11 – Still waiting for travel documents and dealing with a series of setbacks, The Pro from Dover returns with installment three. Public domain literary works mentioned at various points during the recording were Jack London’s “The Jacket” (or Star Rover), “A Week in Waterloo in 1815” by Lady Magdelane De Lancey, Herman Melville’s “Typee.” Also mentioned, though not public domain, was Anne Lamott’s “Bird by Bird.”

Between recording and transmission of this episode, the visa and work permit were approved. The next chapter will be beginning forthwith.

1:02:30 – Installment 2 of the Pro from Dover series features audio responses to PQ’s latest Bug Out episode and the debut of Mike’s awesome Twin Peaks Adventure project. There’s also a very dubious chain of coincidental connection drawn between Scarecrow from Wizard of Oz to Henry Spencer of Eraserhead via Dick Van Dyke’s brother Jerry. Also discussed are steganography, animated GIFs, roller derby, The Goldbergs, and Google + Hangouts.
