Episode 177 – Tommy Edison on Firesign Theatre – Don’t Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers

COV_177_SD

We’re covering Don’t Crush That Dwarf… for the second time in the show’s history, and this time we’re speaking with Tommy Edison, also known as the Blind Film Critic.  Tommy has an infectious sense of humor, so he was a blast to have on the show.  Blind since birth, Tommy’s experience with comedy albums is something we’ve never been able to explore on the show before.  We discuss sound design and voice work in a very pure way, but we also discuss the feel and smell of a record, for the first time on the show.

Video Episode – 166 with Phil Proctor on the History of Firesign, Part 1

Finally, after much too  much trial and error, the video of our first in a series on Firesign Theatre’s history, with Phil Proctor.

Episode 166 – Phil Proctor on the History of Firesign, Part 1

COV_166_SD

This week, we begin retracing the history of Firesign with Phil Proctor, in part one of a mini-series covering every album from the Columbia years, and perhaps moving on to more.  Phil is currently working on an autobiography, so he’s in the storytelling mood, so while we planned to cover the first three albums on this episode, at the end of the show we’re JUST up to the group solidifying.  We’re joined by Firesign super fans Jeremy Guskin and Greg Benson.  Also, there’s video of the episode as well, which you’ll be able to watch shortly at youtube.com/comedyonvinyl.

Episode 139 – Phil Hendrie on Firesign – How Can You Be in Two Places at Once…

Hendrie_SDOf course, the full title is “How Can You Be in Two Places at Once When You’re Not Anywhere at All,” and it’s one of the great Firesign albums.  One half Firesign fever dream, and the other half a long-form Nick Danger adventure, this is the first album that ever exposed Firesign to me as a kid who totally didn’t get it.  It would be awhile before I delved back into Firesign, and it took the good Mr. Phil Hendrie to come back to this album in particular.  We talk Firesign, his other influences, the evolution of radio, and we deconstruct some comedy, for lack of a better word.
