Holy buckets, folks!
We’ve subbed out Frank for this first episode, and we’re bringing in AJ as his successor.
But even before we have recorded our first episode (recording tonight, dropping Friday), we’ve already booked a guest for next week! This is really cool that our friends are so supportive to get this thing off the ground, and now we’re building an awesome talent pool from which to draw guests when we want to have the fun shows with experienced folks.
Here’s what to watch for:
Episode #1 (taping tonight!) – Dave Wheeler & Alex “AJ” Johnson
Episode #2 – Gina Dolski & TBD
If you’re in the Twin Cities area, a fan of all that is Internet Media, and a fantastic riffer and conversationalist, contact us at email@example.com and maybe YOU COULD BE OUR NEXT GUEST!
Adam and I have our first guest list locked down! This is pretty exciting (as I’m sitting in the Frank Oz Memorial studio as I write this update)!
Our guests tomorrow will be Dave Wheeler (@davewheeler) and Steve “Frank” Frankenfield (#frankdoesnthavetwitter) talking to myself and Adam.
I’m trying not to give too much away before you actually get to hear the show, but make sure to listen all the way through, as I think we’re going to try to break out the Leonard Maltin game.
It’s official. The topic/genre/whatever you want to call it has been selected, the host positions have been cast, the mixer has been ordered, and the domain name has been registered. All that’s left is to create a Twitter feed that’ll lay pretty dormant until we get underway.
Adam and I are working to set a standard record/release schedule for episodes (my vote is for Tuesday/Friday) and we’re hopefully going to at least get a dry run (or Episode # 1/2) under our belts next week, so make sure to stay tuned for that.
For now, we have a few things for you:
1) We would like a sponsor. Even for one episode. You’ll get a negotiated number of live reads throughout your sponsored episode(s), or, if you already have a voice for your company, we can work with that too. Obviously, working out of my living room doesn’t cost much to start, so get in now while the gettin’s good.
2) I’m willing to sell naming rights for our studio (aka my living room). As it stands, I am leaning toward The Frank Oz Memorial studio (yes, I know he’s not dead, nor do I wish him ill fate. It’s a catchy sounding inside joke), but I’m up for suggestions/offers of the monetary sort.
3) We are trying to craft an end of show game revolving around Internet media. Something like the Leonard Maltin game, but less of a rip off. We’re going to cycle through a few ideas we’ve had so far, plus the occasional Len Maltin game, but if you have a great idea for a game, and love to hear someone else say your name on a weekly-ish podcast, then I have a deal for you! If you’re interested, or even have a semi-complete idea and are willing to co-author, shoot us a message.
4) We are regularly going to feature guests on the show, but we need guests to feature guests. If you feel you are Internet savvy, conversational, occasionally funny, and have a face for radio, contact us! We will also take pretty people. There is a lot of time on this, since we still need to publish Episode # 1, or, at least, Episode # 1/2, but the opportunity is out there. Grab it … or, instead, clasp it gingerly with a hint of hilarity.
I guess that’s all I have for now, but I’ll update you as stuff changes.
SPREAD THE WORD!
