When the basement of my house flooded, I lost many records and much memorabilia from all my bands. The objects I salvaged I put in a big box. I stared at them for awhile then decided to send them out into the world to a better place, where they wouldn't be ruined. This is when I began my transition into storing memories, instead of objects.

Jughead's Basement Radio Show explores a different influential record each month. Writers, Performers, and Musicians join me each program to talk about their own relationship to specific songs on the record. Even though the program can be downloaded, my intention is to cultivate a live audience, so that this audience has the opportunity to call in and react in the moment, sharing their stories and their opinions, and to directly ask me questions.

Excellent Podcast

Jughead has proven that he is a man of many crafts, and the podcast format suits him very well indeed. His literary and theater talents are on full display, and his historical knowledge of the punk scene serves him well in the interviews he conducts. His conversational style is pleasing to listen to, and the new Polycephela Aporia series is a real triumph, combining his love for theater and storytelling with his already familiar interviewing style. A great contribution to the scene that will become part of his storied legacy as an artist.
