The Midnight Citizen 222: “How To Improve Your Life Through Improv” (7/26/20)

Join Mike in the studio late on a Saturday night.

Show notes: Why does improvisational theatre get such a bad rap? Two improv-themed shows on Netflex: “Middleditch and Schwartz” and “Don’t Think Twice”; the history of improv and negative impressions; the time I embarrassed myself in an improv class with the Second City (it still makes me cringe to this day); lightning struck a tree outside my house this week; Music Break*; a toast to Regis Philbin, who passed away this week at 88; “Live with Regis and Kathy Lee” and “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”; cool guys in 80’s films; Video Street Video Store**; hindsight is 2020, like the year.

*Music Break: “Necrofago” by Dr. Frankenstein“Evil Itch” by The Space Merchants. All music is played under a Creative Commons License (Attribution, noncommercial, no derivatives) and is available at the Freemusicarchive.org

Tape Land 112 – Betty Nora – Family Tree (3/9/02)

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is tapeland5_300.jpg

2:51:36 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic recording from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to release more of my archives.

On this tape, Frank interviews his grandmother, Betty Nora, about family history, at her house in New Brunswick, NJ, on Saturday, March 9, 2002. Frank is 34 and Betty is 92 at the time of the recording. Frank called his grandparents Nanny and Nonno. The story goes, they were meant to be called Nonna and Nonno (Italian for grandmother and grandfather), but as a yound child, Frank pronounced Nonna as “Nanny” and it stuck in the family.

They talk about a wide range of subjects, especially Betty’s memories of growing up in a coal mining town in western Pennsylvania. Also of note on the tape are the origins of Frank’s visit to the town, later in 2002, to meet and talk to Betty’s brother Ralph (that tape upcoming in Tape Land). Also, Frank talks about starting to listen to old Jean Shepherd tapes every day, which would lead, a year later, to the dawn of The Overnightscape.

Notes: Brothers and sisters. Bella the dog. Little country school called Dry Run. Newspapers. Nieces and nephews. The next generation. Clock chimes. Parents. Aunts and uncles. Bootlegger. Indoor bathroom. Italy. Avalanche. Marriages. Grandparents. Carriage maker. Weaver. Great-great-great grandfather. Time for the novel. House hit by lightning. Sharing. Sears Roebuck Catalog. Man in the Moon. Kids in the army. Laundry. Citizenship test. Teachers. Jobs. Pennsylvania. New Jersey. Ice cream. Civilian Conservation Corps. Plan for the “Ralph” tape. Kissinger. Union Carbide.
