It's official, bitches!!!

BOOM! It's official, bitches! Let is be known that In my ministry there is only one rule: Don't be a dick! And as long as you didn't break THAT rule, feel free to come to me for all of your "absolution of sin" needs!

Confessions and Penances MAY have to be performed on the air.

And sorry, William, but I can't help you in that regard. You break rule number one frequently and with a breathtaking impertinence!

Oh my god... What a show last night! The Doctor was his usual crazy, genius, hilarious, genuine, humble and awesome self, with his spirits noticeably lifted by the Parallox remix of "Spirit in the Sky" having reached number 3 on Masspool this past week.  I want to thank everyone who tuned in - all 5+ MILLION of you! This was the fourth straight show featuring either a full interview with him, or a "Cooking with the Doc" segment that drew over five million listeners worldwide. And SPEAKING of worldwide...

The list of countries, provinces and territories that those four of Doc's shows have been collectively picked up by has now grown to 81 and includes: Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belize, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Catalonia, Chile, China, Chuvashia, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Eritrea, Estonia, the Faroe Islands, Fiji, France, Germany, Guam, Honduras, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ingria, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Java, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lesotho, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Malta, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Guinea, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Puerto Rico, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, Somalia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Tajikistan, Telangana, Thailand, Turkey, Tuvalu, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the United States, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, and Whales!

This Tuesday (11/27) we've got veteran comic book writer and artist Stan Yan, in anticipation of the released of his first children's book, There's a Zombie in the Basement.


Then on November 3rd, we're hosting Jeremy Owen, creator of Bludgeon, and co-founder of Burly Press. (So be sure to tell all of your Bear Friends!)


On the 7th, a truly amazing event: ADE SPEAKS!!! I will be joined by percussionist extraordinaire, Ade Hill of Doctor and the Medics. He's FAMOUS as a man of few words, so a lot of folks are looking forward to his first ever on-air interview!

He really is an amasing human being.

Another Wild One...

Tonight we had another wild and crazy show.  The feed went way over the five-million user limit, and even the back-up system crashed momentarily.  Really hoppin' chat room, with all the regulars tuning in, as well as folks from all over the world, staying up until crazy hours to hear my interview with Barbara Sobel, and our new segment, "Cooking with the Doc."

Based on either the chat room or the what the stream was picking up, we had listeners in Azerbaijan, Angola, Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Malawi, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Poland, Puerto Rico, Spain, Russia, Sri Lanka, Slovakia, South Africa, Telangana, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States, Ukraine, Venezuela & Whales.

I want to give a most sincere "THANK YOU" to EVERYONE who tuned in, to Barbara for coming on, and most of all to that mad genius, Doc, for that brilliant segment on how to boil an egg. And if you haven't tuned in yet, and you're wondering what all the fuss is about, you should tune in next week, Saturday, 10/17 at 8:PM Eastern, on RainbowRadio.FM for part two of this show!







Thursday, October 8, 2015

Coming up this week...

As I mentioned before, on Saturday, we've go the first of a two-part show with the Queen Bee herself, Baraba Sobel - after which will premiere Cooking With the Doc, which promises to be a culinary instructional experience like no other.  That's 8:PM Eastern, Saturday on Rainbow Raido. Don't miss it - this is going to bigger than the Doc's prior show, and will have one wild-ass chat room. So be sure to drop in and say, "Hi!"


And then at 10:PM Eastern, on Tuesdsay, the 13th, I am pleased to welcome Terra Snover back to the program, who brings with her Hayden Black, the Writer, Creator and Director of the new animated series Gen Zed.  You may recall that Terra was on the show back in July, and the week before last, on the 29th, we were joined by Julie Rei Goldstein, the lead voice actress for the series.


And if you'd like to see what Gen Zed is is all about, here is the trailer:

ANOTHER TRIP TO FLAT IRON!

If you're friends with me on Facebook, you may have already heard, but I was called out of town all last week on business at the last minute.  And I got suckered into staying in a town with patchy hotel wifi (at best,) no 4G and no Cell Service. (Not USABLE anyway: <1 and="" bar="" i="">roaming
. LOL)
But I DID manage to get up to the Flat Iron again.  You might remember that I posted about this grueling hike back in February. (With a follow-up.)  Anyway, here are some pics I took this time around:

BTW... in that picture on the right, I'm lying down.  Those mountains in the background aren't behind me, they're below me!


 Also, I'm finally able to give some updates from the show!

Julie Rei Goldstein's and Ian Ford's shows are now posted in the Radio Page, and Dan Wee's show will be by night's end.




And, coming up this Saturday, we'll be welcoming back Barbara Sobel, and introducing the first of what we hope to be a regular (at least once weekly) segment, COOKING WITH THE DOC, featuring culinary and/or comedic brilliance from The Doctor, of Doctor and the Medics, Rock icon Clive Jackson! Brilliant segment. Be sure not to miss it!


Sunday, September 27, 2015

Quick Update...

Last night's show with Drag Diva Sheena Rose is now posted on the Radio Page. Great show, very different perspective on LGBT issue than we've had in the past, some fun music... Definitely worth checking out.


And we've got some more really great shows coming up...

This Tuesday, we've got Julie Rei Goldstein, the lead actress in the new animated comedy series, Gen Zed:


On Saturday we're joined by DJ Ian Ford, a, incredibly interesting guy with a background unlike any other, and a wide array of interests. Please tune in as we talks music, clubs, politics, religion and spirituality.


And then next Tuesday, the 6th, we'll have Dan Wees, author of The Encyclopedia of Anti-Mormonism, and blogger currently compiling his list of 1,001 Reasons to discount Mormonism.  Come on in as a former insider gives us some of the scoop on this often misunderstood sect.


In the meantime, if anyone needs me, I will be splitting time between Arizona and Mexico for the upcoming week. Hopefully on Saturday (the 3rd) I'll be standing on top of THIS once again:


 Yep, weather permitting (no rain,) I'll be trekking up my favorite Phoenix Peak once again, the Flat Iron, atop the Superstitions Mountain Range in Lost Dutchman State Park.  If anyone will be in the area that day and would like to meet up, shoot me line at niceguy9418@usa.com or message me on facebook.

Amazing

Since I last posted, several shows have been uplaoded to the Radio Page, inlcuding Matt Page, Eric Alan and Caroline Cossey's.

But there is something I'd like to share with you all, for a couple of reasons: First to highlight some of the guests I've had on the show, and the work they do, but also because what's happened in the last 24 hours is incredible. The following are the top five shows we've done, based on their number of listens on my Mixcloud. (This is in addition to whatever audience we had that particular night, which is not being considered. :P) (Otherwise Doc, who practically broke the station, would be the all-time heavy weight champion.)


#5: Alex Heberling, Jenn Dolari and Crystal Frasier. This show aired on 6/9/15. Alex is the creator of "The Hues: Postapocalyptic Magical Girls" webcomic. Jenn is the creator of the "Closetspace" () and "A Wish for Wings" webcomics. Together with he her roommate, Crystal Frazier, they created the "Call me ____" Vanity Fair cover phenomenon that took over Tumblr, Twitter (etc...) for a couple weeks following the initial Caitlyn Jenner Vanity Fair story. (24 Listens)



#4 Doug Strahm. This show aired on 9/5/15. Doug is a pop-country music singer and songwriter. You can find his videos on YouTube and his albums can be purchased through his website(25 Listens)



#3: Christian Beranek and Kelci Crawford. This show aired on 7/14/15. Christian and Kelci are the wirter and artist behind "Validation" and Kelci has several noteworthy projects of her own that can be found on her website. (29 listens)



#2: Carrie Reimer. This show aired way back on 5/26/15. Carrie is the blogger behind Lady With a Truck, where she shares her story of surviving a 10 year long relationship with an abusive narcissist. Helping to signal boost her work, and to potentially make other folks aware of her blog, and the information she shares, makes this one of the shows I've been most proud to have been a part of, even if my audience was a bit smaller at the time. (64 listens)



Now... All that is so fucking cool, it really is. And with just two exceptions (who shall remain nameless) I have been absolutely thrilled to have met and talked to and hosted each and every single one of the guests I've had on, as well as the ones that I've spoken to who's shows have not yet aired. I love you all, I truly do. But the response to the following show has been simply amazing, and I am humbled by how it has been received, and am truly grateful to have been a part of it.



#1: Caroline Cossey. This show aired LAST NIGHT. "Tula" probably needs no introduction, but to those whom she does, I suggest you read her book. It's been recently re-released for Kindle.

This show, in less than 24 hours, has already generated 94 Listens! And that is in addition to what was arguably the most lively chat room we've ever had for a Tuesday show, and the numerous messages I received from folks both before and after the show.

So, Caroline? I want to thank you again for taking the time to talk to me. I am so grateful that you did this, and please know that you remain an inspiration to so many people around the world!

THANK YOU DOCTOR!

I want to give a huge THANK YOU to the Reverend Doctor Clive Jackson for giving us such a great show tonight. It was a HUGE success that hit over FIVE MILLION listeners before the primary server STOPPED COUNTING.

 The stream went out to over 37 countries, with folks tuning in from Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Chuvashia, Ecuador, Eritrea, Fiji, France, Guam, Honduras, Iceland, India, Ingria, Iran, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Lesotho, Luxembourg, Malta, Mauritius, Morocco, New Guinea, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Tuvalu, Ukraine, The United Kingdom, The United States and Venezuela. If I missed anyone, please forgive me and thanks so much for tuning in! 

And the show is now up on the Radio Page for everyone how missed it!


An Excellent Blog by Christine Smith

Christine Smith has penned an excellent blog that gave a very interesting an important take on a couple of aspects of the Kim Davis controversy, particularly the #IWasKimDavis hashtag.  Highly recommended reading.

Dog Bites Man: An open letter to Reverand Mark Sandlin

Just a couple of excepts...
When people like you, and those straight and cisgender people who have also rushed to admit that hey, yeah.... they totally hated people like me, I feel anxious, seeing walls closing in. I don't need reminding just how ubiquitous and gosh-darn understandable folks find it to hate me and my loved ones. I know. I'm not allowed to forget. It's painful to be reminded at every turn that recognizing my humanity was something you had to learn to do. Nor am I shielded from the self-congratulation that goes hand in hand with publicly rejecting that hate. I certainly do not think that you accomplished it is worth special celebration. From my perspective, ceasing to hate people for the way God made them is the bare minimum expectation of a decent human being.
and

Ms. Davis represents a culture war that has harmed and broken people, broken families. As a Christian, I believe that she deserves forgiveness and grace from those of us who she’s harmed. We need to work toward reconciliation with all children of God. 
But the challenge is before US, not before YOU. 
You have taken this historical moment as yours. You are defining it around yourself, and celebrating the strength of character you display in not only moving past your bigotry but also forgiving people who haven’t overcome theirs. Yet, you are not the aggrieved party.
And it's not TL so please don't DR! Please check it out.

...And if you'd like to hear the discussion I had with Christine on IMHO, you can find it here.  A prior interview she did with me for the Blog can also be found here.
