|02:52 am - So that's what we sound like on a post-performance high|
A producer from PRX, an online public radio repository, came 'round to the Big Broadcast of 1954 and interviewed me and Neil during one of the nights (I believe our first Friday performance.) The resulting piece, which goes a little into the Byfar Hour's creation and features a frazzled pre-show and manic-exuberant post-show interview, has been put up for all to hear. There's also a bit from the Piscataway Queen sketch recorded from the balcony. (Context provided upon request care of this station.)
Being one of those types who doesn't enjoy the whole observing-oneself thing because of the tiny Wittgenstein on my shoulder constantly second-guessing into my ear, I shall withhold all comments except to say that Neil sounds very clever and good, I think I can live with the adjective "quirky" for this kind of work, and I kindly don't lie this time around about Frank Cyrano being real.

Quick, Henry, the Flit!
You sound like someone whose radio shows I'd go to.

Fascinating! I've been a bit addicted to a radio comedy from the BBC these last few months, so it was interesting to hear some of the behind-the-scenes stuff, and I'm intrigued by your show.
(also, Neil sounds rather a bit like Wil Wheaton.)
(also also, I apparently have Issues with radio interviewers. Who knew.)
