In Case You Missed It: Flabby Hoffman Show From The Archive


Back in September I was a guest on the Flabby Hoffman Extravagonzo! The show is now up on Archive.org in case you slept in first time around. I show up right at the :59 minute mark. The whole show is pretty funny but do be warned it is about as raunchy as you can get on broadcast radio.


Tune In 9/27: Flabby Hoffman’s Radio Extravagonzo

Hey Kids! I would like to invite everyone to tune in to Flabby Hoffman’s Radio Extravagonzo on Saturday, September 27th at 1:00 PM Central Time. I will be a guest on the show, live on the air, chatting about Meowing On The Answering Machine and whatever other madness brews between Mr. Hoffman and myself.

The show is broadcast live and available at 1680 on your AM dial from strategically positioned locations around Chicagoland. It is also webcast on Q4 Radio at http://que4.org/#sthash.GhrwrPzP.dpbs for global availability.

For more on Flabby Hoffman, his Radio Extravagonzo and all his other efforts in making the Chicago artist’s scene that much weirder, please visit https://www.facebook.com/flabbyhoffmansradioextravagonzo

On the Air with Tessa B Dick


Meowing on the Radio First of all thank you to those of you who tuned in. It was a lot of fun from my end, although I did find myself more nervous than I thought I would be. 

The link at the top of the page will open the archive where you can hear the complete show. It was an honor to be on Freedomizer Radio with Tessa B. Dick. More than a straight and formal interview it was more like a conversation with a friend, a few friends at the end.

We did talk about my book but we touched on a lot of subjects as we veered through the stratosphere of available topics. I was surprised and delighted we talked as much as we did about Philip K Dick and his work, especially to hear a few new twists on the tales and aspects of the stories I hadn’t heard before, and direct from the source!

Thanks to everyone who called in, Sara your book is on its way, I do hope you enjoy! I expect a full report! And multiple thanks again to Tessa for this and all the support you have granted me in this adventure.




Radio-Meow-C300HOWDY KIDS!

I’m really excited for this one! Next Monday, March 3rd at 3:00 pm (pacific), I will be on FREEDOMIZER RADIO with Tessa B. Dick talking about ‘Meowing on the Answering Machine’ and whatever else weaves its way into the conversation.

I am honored to be invited, I am very much looking forward to this. Hope you all can tune in. Leave work early and send the kids outside to play in the snow.

Tune in next Monday March 3rd.

Internet-AddictionSo, listening to the radio, I used to hear people say, “Double-U, double-U, double-U, dot…,” when mentioning a web site.

Recently, though, they have figured out the much simpler ‘Triple double-U, dot…,’ which is all very well and good.

But in the interest of further simplification, I propose that we introduce the word ‘Sextuple- U’ into the idiom.

Besides its obvious advantage of cutting nine clumsy syllables down to four, it does also start with the word ‘sex’ which is a good way to make the kids giggle, is bound to titillate distracted drivers and others who are just barely listening, and give rise to some hilariously awkward misunderstandings.
