This is CH ZERO

The name comes from the song. CH ZERO was first called Signal to Noise, but after a while I decided to change that and CH 0 was born.

Though there are some commonalities, It has nothing directly to do with this channel zero, or this one, though both are cool ;).

For 7 years on CIUT 89.5 fm, I produced and co-hosted the show. We had a series of in-house troupes doing radio plays, spoken word performances, and sketch comedy.

I played with sampling on my old mac LC [it still works!], and mixed live using 2 turntables, 2 tape decks, & 2 CD players running material taken randomly from the library or pre-recorded to tape.

It was a fun show, I enjoyed my time on it! But like many things that become routine, after 7 yrs I decided it was time for a change.

Recently the bug has been nipping at me, but I still don't want to be locked into a schedule. Along comes POD CASTING. Well damn. That's just about right.

So CH ZERO is reborn....
