Radio Free Charleston Production Notes: Episode Six

The new RFC should be online tomorrow. We wrapped it on Tuesday and I delivered it yesterday between changing flat tires on my car. You can see a snippet of Professor Mike's performance in the new GazzTV show, "What's Going On." Show number six cranks up the hyperactivitization level a bit as we bring you our loudest band yet, the aforementioned Professor Mike, and the mysterious musical cabal known as Two Watts Of Power, who also give us our song of the week in the post below this one. Episode Six is titled "Chris Hero Shirt," named after the shirt I'm wearing in the show (The shows are named after my shirts, you may have caught on to that by now). Chris Hero is the reigning Heavyweight Champion of IWA East Coast, and it's a really cool shirt.

We've also got a movie trailer featuring The No Pants Players. I shot their footage back in June or July, but there were so many technical issues (on my end) that it took until now to work out the bugs and edit the piece that you see on the show. The RFC "Yahoo" guy joins the troupe, unofficially and against their will, for one brief cameo. The NPP will be appearing at the Labelle Theater with their Halloween show later this month, but Friday night three members of the troupe will be onstage at the Labelle performing Shakespeare of a sort.

Professor Mike came into the LiveMix Studio last week, and we bring you the exciting results. They perform an electrifying version of their own song, "Greater Good." It was a blast meeting the guys, and we'll probably be seeing them again on RFC real soon. They were certainly one of the loudest bands we've had on the show, and I was really knocked out by their sound. If they ever didn't win a battle of the bands, it must have been rigged. Professor Mike is at the Sound Factory Friday night, and Mel and I will be zipping over to see them after we catch "The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged)" at the Labelle.

LiveMix Studio is our production facility and in the coming weeks I'll be writing more about Charleston's coolest Audio/Video production house. It's time for the boys to take a bow. We'll be doing a photo essay here in PopCult, and a behind-the-scenes video may even turn up somewhere.

GI Joe returns to Radio Free Charleston in this episode, too. You can almost see an Action Marine sitting astride Bob Dobbs' head in the background of Professor Mike's performance. You can also check out an Adventure Team Astronaut menacing The Red Baron. Toys are fun. Oh, and I can now let the cat out of the bag--the GI Joe Adventure Team Land Adventurer with Kung Fu Grip, as seen in episode five of RFC, will be available exclusively from Hot Topic this November.

Be sure to check out our MySpace page, and go ahead and sign up to be our friend. Also, watch the news, because if I ever find the guy who designed the Blogger.com interface, I'm going after him with a bludgeoning oar. If you happened to read this post before 9 PM Thursday, you may notice that the second half of it has been completely re-written. Guess why.

Shame on you for making us wait an extra week for this. Great show. I loved the Two Watts music, and Professor Mike sounds really amazing, and loud. I enjoyed the Kennedy-Nixon debates too. It was nice to see the No Pants Players on the show again, too. Funny stuff.

So what are we going to get for Halloween?

Another incredible show. How do you guys keep making each show better than the last, when tbey were all good to begin with? This show just flew by. Real brain-candy. I can't wait for the Halloween shows.

This is one trippy show. I'm going to go back and watch all the others now. You guys really need to promote this more. I never would have found out about it if I hadn't been alerted by some of my fellow Prof Mike fans.

Man, I go a week between broadband companies and look what I miss.

Cool show. This one reminded of the beloved Night Flight more than any of your other shows, and they were close. Nice to see you bring in a younger band and let them shine. The video was cool, too. The animation would have seemed like a cheat if it hadn't been so damned funny. "I feel we should meet our committments to feel Doris" indeed! How are you going to top this one?

Fantastic to see PM on the show. Cool show, too. I thought the Gazz TV stuff was all going to be like that local music report. I tried it months ago, and wasn't impressed. This show is incredible. You guys have really stepped it up.

Glad I found this through the Professor Mike grapevine. I LOVE THIS SHOW! Professor Mike is one hot band! I read about the No Pants Players a few weeks ago, and they were really funny! The rest of the show reminded me of one of my favorite show, Sesame Street.

Keep up the cool work and bring back Professor Mike!

GI Joe, The Red Baron, Bob Dobbs, weird animation, cool music, and a host who looks sorta beatnick-y. Very druggy, in a good way.

Very cool show. Keeps getting better and better. Keep it up.

Where IS your studio? It's so cool looking. It's great that we have a professionally produced showcase for local music. The other web shows in town are so ameteurish.
