7 Years In
7 years into my second entertainment career, it's time for a fresh BLOG, which we will call a Phlog, because "Ph" starts "Phoole," and because I will probably use it to flog things I'm making for and with Phooligans.
Today, in June 2020, I'm so happy for the differences: amid pandemic and protests, we can still congregate safely, because the PhooleOut Shelter is online, and the Phooliverse is interactive worldwide, despite discord or disease.
On Friday, 19 June 2020, we will celebrate Phoole & the Gang's 7th Phooliversary!
Here's what the very first Phoole & the Gang show looked like, back on 20 June 2013 (screengrabs by Nicole Dicop-Hineline):
Over the years, the show's been live and interactive:
on 3 different radio stations and had 2 indie stints
on 4 different broadcast platforms
broadcast from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean
More numbers from 7 years on the air:
over 300 shows
over 600 hours on the air
over 3,000 hours of show preparation
8 different studio configurations in 4 different locations
live listeners and archive-rewinders in over 100 countries and over 420 cities
over 9,000 tunes played
We'll also be debuting a brand-new tune! Thanks once again to the invaluable help of The Aardvark a/k/a Paul Taylor, I teamed up again with Fidget Studios' Barry Diston for a tune that's all about the underground disco that is the PhooleOut Shelter and a phrase that's a big part of the Phoole & the Gang life - I can't wait for you to hear it!
Phoole & the Gang wouldn't exist without these people:
Sacha Wall, the founder of Ideal Clubworld Radio and current maven at Data Transmission Radio
The Phoole Patreon Platoon - JOIN THEM TODAY at patreon.com/phoole!
YOU. Thank you.
Don't miss the 7th Phooliversary Show!
