WXBA Radio


Well, it had to happen sooner or later. After all, I've been told for years that I have a face made for radio. But when the folks at WXBA asked me if I'd like to come on the air and ramble incoherently for two hours, how could I say no?

It turns out that Jaimie and Buddha from WXBA saw my panel at Icon in March, and enjoyed the way that I would start a story, go off on four hundred tangents, finish another story, and bake a cake. All the while without ever completing the story I originally started. What can I say, it's a skill. And they wanted me to use that skill for two hours on the air!

They also asked that I bring some SpatCave stuff to be given away on the air. How could I say no? I am a shameless self-promoter after all. So I looked around the shop and found some things that I thought the listeners might be interested in, and I came across a stunt foot that was made for Solomon's Requiem, but never used.

Here's the foot! I added the gore and bone to it for the Radio show, since the stunt foot had a clean top (not needed for the shot). I wasn't really sure what people would want as a give-away from a radio show, so I just kinda grabbed anything!

John and I arrived at WXBA and met Buddha and Jack ( of The Madhatters Show), and Jaimie (the Station Manager), and were given a basic run through of what would be going on. Buddha had printed out this list of "Spat Facts" from my website along with questions he wanted to ask and topics he wanted to cover. Of course, in typical Spat Style, we never really got to any of them! Oops!

Me, John and Jack telling stories that never go anywhere!

John trying not to be in the same shot as Jack. He scares us. Mostly due to the smell...

My "Cans" and my personalized cup. Man, they do go all out at WXBA!

Spat Swag! Aside from the severed foot, we also gave out a Nightwing Mask, "Got Spat?" t-shirt, Blade Mac 11 kit, a Zombie Appliance, and a set of Matrix Style head and arm plugs.

Duckie!! His name is Ron, but tell me he doesn't remind you of John Cryer's character in "Pretty in Pink"?

And finally, the PussyCats!

I should be getting John's pictures tomorrow, so I'll add those to the page as soon as I get them.

And I'm also working on making some .wav files from the radio show available for download here!

AND, WXBA has invited John and I back again, so be sure to keep an eye and ear out for that as well!

For those that are interested, Jaimie told me they got about 300 e-mails for the contest!
