The Hound

The Hound is a mythological figure capable of dishing out the most insightful analysis on contemporary society, the tactile pleasure of fine textures (sonic, olfactory or otherwise), most obscure blues 78 pressing, and the punk esthetics, all within the span of a NY minute. Just imagine what kind of a trip The abound will take you on during an entire show: the joyful trip of a lifetime. Frankly, I don’t listen to podcasts; the only two I do are The Hound’s and Philosophize This’. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

Greasy like it ought to be

If you like your music greasy, rocking and rolling, this is the place. Serving up obscure sides of rock n roll, jump, blues, country, hillbilly and more. If you don't like this show, then you're probably a commie or deaf

Howling with the Hound!

James Marshall - AKA “The Hound” - is one of my all-time radio inspirations. The way he dropped soundbytes from old movies, radio and TV shows (and wherever else he farmed them), between spins was a massive influence on me and many others. The fact he did it via those ancient WFMU cart machines (which rarely worked correctly) is a minor miracle. He also revived “Mad Daddy” style tape echo, using actual reel-to-reel machines (FMU had Otari and Scully 1/4” machines) and tape loops that sometimes stretched seven feet or more. Watching those loops make their way around several mic stands (the length is crucial for the right delay interval and repeats) always fascinated me. But those are just stylistic elements. It’s his knowledge of the music that always set Jim apart. The on-air kibitzing between him and Bruce, the interviews and live performances was an added benefit. I don’t think Jim gets the credit he deserves for his innovations and lasting impact. There ARE many imitators out there - the Internet makes it easy - but they should all be paying a royalty to Jim, IMO. When he first hit the air there was nothing like him. Despite the many Hound-wannabes, there still isn’t. What you hear on this podcast are actual 33s, 45s and 78s played on actual turntables. That's as rare as the records.
