Like warm fudge in your ears.
If you ever wondered what it would be like to have a P.H.D in pop music, Ron “Boogiemonster” Gerber has the answer. Last week I listened to his Thomas Dolby interview show and was blown away by the amount of insight and material he could gleam from a pop star that shimmered on the horizon. The collaboration between p-funk and Dolby was raw, and the ‘old stuff ripping off new’ was quite cool with some hip hop bands bitting She Blinded Me With Science until I was ready to go blind, with science, ahem. Ron’s interview did prove without a shadow of a doubt that Dolby was nerdier then me, a sequencer out of a disco light control rig, good lord man.
The name of his webcast is Crap from the Past, and if you take the time to listen, you will find some audio clips that will surely amuse, most likely confound, and with out a doubt annoy even the most experienced audiophile. See if you can find the live clip of Elvis caught in the middle of a giggle fest while trying to belt out Love Me Tender. Or what about the ‘Interview with Jaws’ mash up from the late 70′s, classic. The amount of content available on the site is staggering, and the visual BBS style graphics (it says dos, but I had a C64) rock.
Do your self a favor, enjoy more Crap from the PAST!
