    Throwback Wednesday

    Episode 116 

    As a very lucky adult, I have toured the US and Europe many times, singing and playing guitar for people. But in my younger years – when I was the handsome young man you see in this photo – the music I made was keyboard based. 

    When I was a senior in high school, I was in a synthesizer band called Pink Aftershock. We released a cassette tape of some of our originals songs on this date 35 years ago, November 17, 1986. That tape was the first release from a small indie label I operated called Slamdek which issued more than 40 releases by Louisville artists over the following decade. 

    I have always loved the way all the notes are just laid out in front of you on a piano or synthesizer. It makes more visual sense to me than the way they are stacked on a guitar. You can see all the notes at once and choose the colors you’d like to blend. 

    For today’s episode, I used some sounds and techniques that reminded me of the music I loved while growing up, and had a lot of fun combining them with some of the approaches I have been using in music since then. I hope you enjoy it.

    Episode 114 

    In the middle of the supermarket, the protagonist of today’s 44-second audio drama comes to a painful realization. 

    As omniscient observers, we know he shouldn’t be so hard on himself. Despite what the product’s name might suggest, Bisquick can be used for much more than quickly making biscuits. Pancakes, quiches, and pizza crusts can also be found in its wheelhouse.

    A Message from the Chattahoochee River Strangler

    Episode 112 

    The charming and affable Chattahoochee River Strangler stops by with a personal message for listeners of Here’s the Tower.

    He doesn’t care for the nickname the media has invented for him, nor is he a fan of the way he was portrayed as evil and mysterious on an earlier episode of this program. He’s so likable and easygoing, the least we can do is give Terry Wayne MacAnaulty a few minutes of our time to set the record straight.

    Today we’ll take a look back at some pivotal moments in American history as they unfolded on YouTube… and we’ll enjoy some of the lowest hanging fruit in the world of impersonations. 

    If you take anything away from this episode, I hope it is this catchphrase: What you want to do is just go ahead and jump out of the dirigible.

This isn’t a podcast, this is art

I don’t listen to podcasts but I can tell that this isn’t a podcast. This is art or something.
