Mondo Diablo Episode 272 is Bacchanalia Part IV: The Death of Some Guy

September 16, 2010

We end this Opus with the story of PDQ’s actual composing period, his relationship with Prince Fred and his cousin, Betty-Sue Bach, his death and burial, and finally, an interview of Peter Schickele, the discoverer of PDQ, by Tom Snyder. I can only hope, in some small way, that these podcasts aided in bringing the truth about J.S. Bach’s last and least son to the internet public.

Mondo Diablo Episode 269 is Bacchanalia Part I: The Last and Least

August 29, 2010

Welcome to the first part of a big three-parter!

I have enjoyed Peter Schickele and his disovery, P.D.Q. Bach for, garsh, 25 years at least, for “Bob’s” sake. Funny I haven’t shared much with you yet. well, not so funny (yes, so funny). All of my music is on vinyl. So, I had to do an epic search and and epic emptying of my bank account to get some non-scratchy stuff. Of course, some of the scratchy stuff is inevitable. I listened to it a lot, because I was a nerd. A big nerd. I used to sing some of this stuff in school, because I knew people would have no idea what I was doing. And of course, they didn’t give a shit, either. No worries.

Mondo Diablo Episode 268: Weaponizing Mozart

August 19, 2010

For your education and edification, to weed out the undesirables from our community; the teenagers and the Dicks, and to keep everything clean and unsullied by grotesque graffiti, spit and skateboarding, I offer you this purely Classic show full of Classical Music written by Classical Men of classical age. Well. Some of these pieces were written during the last century, so it’s still in keeping with the theme of the show. This, solemn, serious classical show. Enjoy, and keep your hands to yourselves.
