Chief Broadcast Engineer

Radio Transmitter Engineers are becoming a thing of the past. It seems like a career choice few would make in today’s Internet Age. I can’t even imagine my kids generation even knowing that this is a career choice. Of course, in my world, I get to make believe that Radio Broadcasting is the next big thing. Call me an old soul stuck in the…

Cod Peace Head

To commemorate the (almost) beginning of summer, I offer you Cod Peace Head Broadcasting’s Summer Beach Spectacular. Cod Peace Head, located on the quaint Maine coast in the imaginary seaside hamlet with its peaceful beach and great fishing. Everything about Cod Peace Head is imaginary – from the “Song Ideas” to the characters, to the olde tyme radio broadcasts and call letters. The silly…

Ode To Radio

Of all mans inventions, my favorite is the radio. The fact that someone conceived the idea that we could communicate via wireless is fascinating. While I understand the science behind it – it still seems like “magic”. In a world that seems less and less magical, at least radio has always been there for me. I grew up in a small town 60 miles…

Puppet Radio Station Work

I was on the air with Ham Radio from 1973 – 76 in New Jersey as WA2QHN, then cars and girlfriends replaced that. I got back into the hobby very seriously from 2001 – 2016 as KY6R, and then sold everything in 2020. I used the money to purchase all of my music gear – another hobby I was very active in between about…

Mind Full

A double entendre on mind filled and mind full. This song seemed to write itself in about 3 hours in my tiny desk studio.

Danger Days

It funny, but I’m so used to lockdown – its like I don’t want to come out of my “safe cocoon” – even three weeks after my second shot. I will venture out and go to the gym again soon. That’s my strong defense mechanism and natural yearning for survival. For the last three weeks, I’ve lived a horror at work. It feels “dangerous”,…

First Puppet Theatre Photo Shoot

Its a GREAT day – I’ve worked for months to get to this point. In some ways, today is “Day One” as far as this crazy puppet theatre idea goes. Its all started one afternoon – I had several weird thoughts that came together . . . . . take my music and combine it with creepy puppets – somehow. Video? Still Life Photography?…

Puppet Theatre Test Shots

Today I turned on my LED photo lights for the first time. I just used my simple and silly phone for a bunch of test shots. Turns out, the side light from outside is really nice on the puppet stage and Proscenium. All I need now is one little maroon drape and curtain / bunting around the stage. I also did finish the park…

Phrenology

While Phrenology was a fad and pseudoscience – it is kinda cool and fun anyway. The old illustrations re very cool indeed. Today’s song includes a “happy accident”. I didn’t care to just play a blues guitar part, so I started just “scratching” on the strings before the bridge-piece. It sure sounded cool – and I kept it as a “sort of” guitar part….
