7th Anniversary of The Overnightscape


To celebrate the 7th Anniversary of The Overnightscape, I have launched a new website:

On this site, you can listen to my entire radio archive in a convenient, web-based player – all of The Overnightscape, The Rampler, The Overnightscape Underground, and a whole lot more! There’s never been an easier way to listen to the archive – which currently stands at 1,865 tracks with 1,618 hours of audio (67.4 days).


I came up with the idea for The Overnightscape on Thursday, March 13, 2003. I was on my way home from work in NYC, riding the PATH train back to NJ. Here’s exactly what I wrote on my Palm Pilot:

3/13/03 6:54 pm

non-meta half-hour talk show, just me

3/13/03 7:03 pm

the overnightscape

I went home, set up my recording system, and started recording the show at around 9:55 PM – less than 3 hours after I wrote down my idea for the show and its name (wow, just think, it could have been called Nightscans…) What I recorded was The Overnightscape Beta #1 – the first of two test shows I did before releasing the first official episode two weeks later.

Hear these and all the rest on!


After a bit of chaos in the past few years, The Overnightscape has evolved into The Overnightscape Underground – still essentially the same, but with a slightly different configuration.

It’s been 7 years, and the pleasantly insane rambling is still going strong – and getting more insane all the time!!!

Enjoy the archive!

  2. Frank, your archive site, is amazing. I have never seen a site designed in that way.
    Dead simple, Years across the top, a easily used player, and auto loading of all content.
    I hope more people will follow your lead on this, and also that you get the credit you deserve for not only your
    work, but for putting this together.

    Major Achievement Get!,
    Awarded to Frank.

  3. Thanks!! I have been dreaming a long time of creating a site like this for my archive. I was really amazed to find this Flash player application available, which was really far beyond any other Flash player I’ve ever seen. Still, there are a lot of features I would love to add in the future… but I think this is a big step forward!!

  4. Frank, congrats on the 7 year anniversary! Your work is awesome – interesting – thought-provoking – funny – and original.

    The new site is amazing (and you should look into offering the look/feel to others and make mad cash). I’m sure there are others who
    would love to consolidate multiple sites / projects in much the same way.

    Here’s to the next 7 years! FEN Rocks!
