The Countdown

These are the episodes of The Countdown done for MipoRadio. This is the predecessor show to i-outlaw. The first episodes Josh Hinck only supplied some music and audio/samples but by episode 19 he had become the producer. So Bob Marcacci and Josh Hinck worked the final 3 shows in the style that would become i-outlaw.

Here’s the latest episode of The Countdown, featuring William Carlos Williams. See what we put together for your audio weather.

Don’t be shy. Even if you haven’t heard the other shows, let me know what you think…

15 The Countdown featuring Alan Ginsberg

Despite my lackluster efforts, everyone else has worked quite hard to make this thing come together. Thanks, Angela, for supreme advice, confidence and patience, and Julie Carter and Luc Simonic, who always read brilliantly. I can’t thank you two enough for your wonderful recordings. Also, welcome to Josh Hinck who fashioned the audio collages with his own music, mixing it up with samples taken from: Tombstone Canyon, 1932, directed by Alan James and The Outlaw, 1943, directed by Howard Hughes. Finally, none of this would happen without the might and magic of Didi Menendez who puts everything together in any weather. How can we lose?
