Podcast for 03-15-08 - Rocko's Modern Life

Another wonderful Saturday is upon us and that means it's time for another edition of The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show. Today's episode has not one, not two, but four vignettes from classic Nicktoon Rocko's Modern Life.

We are in the midst of WIDR Week, so some of the show is spent asking our listeners to donate and help keep WIDR and Radio Evolution alive. You may not know this, but the vast majority of our operating budget and emergency fund come from the direct contributions of the WIDR audience, both in Kalamazoo and around the world. In fact, our first donation this morning came from California, so you can see we get around. If you're an international listener and would like to donate, there is a donation link on the main page of the WIDR website. Every single dollar helps and goes to keep independent music and radio kicking in Kalamazoo.

Here's this week's episode. We had a blast, so hopefully you will too. :)

This file's a little larger than usual, as I've decided to try things out at a higher bitrate. If any of you have a preference about file size, sound quality, etc., please let me know. It's totally feasible to post a high and low quality version for folks with slower connections. Enjoy!

Podcast for 03/08/08 - Silver Surfer

Sorry about the delay on yesterday's show. Someone changed the setting on the board to something very bad and I didn't realize it until after the show, so I've been trying to get the file cleaned up. The good news is that it's much better than it was when I started, but the expected bad news is that it's still really overdriven and may drive the audiophiles in the audience nuts. That being said, the show was really good, so it's worth muddling through. :)

The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show - 03/08/08 - Silver Surfer

WIDR Week is now in full swing, so please consider giving to help keep radio evolution on the air and, well, evolving. If everyone who listened to the station or the show podcasts gave a dollar we would have more than enough to run the station for the year. Just something to think about.

As we did last year, we'll be offering an additional premium to the good folks who donate during our show at the $30 level. You'll of course get the swag WIDR has for you, but as a special bonus and thank you from DJ Beta and I we'll be putting together a SMCS mix disc with all kinds of musical delights for animation fans of all ages. Donors will have the choice between an all music disc or a disc that includes a never-before-heard cartoon. If you have any questions or special requests about WIDR Week or our giveaway, please feel free to leave a comment here or give us a call whenever you hear either of us on the air. :)
