Hello, hello, radio apocalyptica!

Active Radioactive Radio is a post-apocalyptic radio show hosted by that swanky man without a plan, Johnny Franks.

Two-parts Delilah, two-parts Howard Stern, with just a dash of Ryan Seacrest, Johnny Franks hosts Active Radioactive Radioshow live from his mountaintop bunker, broadcasting music from before the nuclear apocalypse and answering real questions from real listeners out in the ether. Johnny's banter is always the highlight of any given episode, and I love hearing all the wild and crazy things he comes up with.

The show’s interactive element works by following Johnny on Twitter, and submitting questions there for him to answer. Sometimes he responds during an episode, and sometimes he doesn’t, but it’s still a cool opportunity for audience members to leave their influence on the show. And for those questions he does answer, the person who asked them recieves an actual real world prize package, which is doubly cool!

The music aired on the show is generally centered around an episodic theme, and, in a somewhat clever scheme, is used to reveal Johnny's character while also entertaining the audience.

On the whole, Active Radioactive Radio is a neato show with a clever premise and a clever character development scheme. If you like Perfoming Arts podcasts like Welcome to Night Vale or Limetown, chances are you'll enjoy Johnny's show too.
