Also Ric and Jeff sit down with one of the Beale Street staples, Mr. Sean “Bad” Apple to talk blues and other things. It is kind of rare to get him into the studio as he is one of the busiest musicians around.

Episode 205: The New Year’s Show That Didn’t Air with Zeke Johnson
<p>This was recorded 31 December, 2017. It was meant to be live. That didn’t happen as apparently (or so we are told), some New Year’s Eve reveller took out an “internet node” with his car and took down the entire area the studio sits in. There were phone calls to the ISP (Comcast), adult language was used (liberally) and it was ultimately decided to record the show for later use. Here is that later use. Ric and Dianna were ready to go with this show so they did it anyway. It is the Radio Memphis New Year’s Eve show featuring Zeke Johnson.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Goodson &#38; Taylor</p>

Episode 204: Getting Bent with Liz Kinnmark
<p>2018 has started. For some, this is where people tend to try and make their changes. This show included. Over the last several episodes, we have transitioned to an interview based show. So yes, a new year and some new things. At least out of our studios. In this episode, Ric sits down with local performer Liz Kinnmark about her series of quarterly shows known as Poleluminati. Liz will explain what this show is all about and how you can find out more. Pole dancing. It doesn’t necessarily involve nudity. At least no one was naked during this conversation. Also, music from Low Life Leakers.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: The New Year’s Eve show you didn’t hear with Zeke Johnson.</p> <p> </p>

Episode 203: Songwriting With Eddie Dattel & Wally Ford
<p>It is no secret Memphis is fountain of fantastic talent. One such part of the musical talent that never gets talked about in depth is the art of songwriter. In this episode, Ric sits down with Eddie Dattel and Wally Ford who have written a massive catalog of songs for a bunch of artists in the area. Eddie doesn’t get out to play much, as he will explain in this conversation but, he has a new disc out and he plays a couple of songs from that CD plus a couple of cuts from the disc itself. Plus, Ric wraps up 2017 with his final thoughts of the year.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Getting bent with Liz Kinnmark and music from Low Life Leakers. </p>

Episode 202: The Annual Christmas War & John Nemeth
<p>Ric likes to say, “The best part of Christmas is it being over.” People tend to get a little too worked up around this time of year and Ric delivers his annual report from the front lines of the war on Christmas. Naturally, there will be some who have issues with this, nevertheless what is said, needs to be said. But, it gets better. John Nemeth and his band was in the Radio Memphis studios and delivered a fantastic performance and a great time all the way around. </p> <p>NEXT WEEK: The New Year with Eddie Dattel &#38; Wally Ford.</p> <p> </p>

Episode 201: Plato, The Romans and Josh McLean
<p>Don’t be fooled. Even though Ric makes mention of this episode being the 200th episode, you haven’t lost your mind. Ric lost count. In this episode, he’ll get into the current talk of government control. He also brings on long time friend of Radio Memphis, Josh McLean. They cover a lot of ground in a pretty short amount of time. Plus, Josh is half of the act Heels. You’ll get a taste of their work from a previously recorded bit for another show. It’s great fun and it’s all right here.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: From the frontlines of the so called “Christmas War” and a really fun time with John Nemeth. </p>

Plus, he’s working on his own show called <a href="http://www.littlebilly.com">Little Billy</a>. It’s about a 4 year old kid who lives with neurodiversity and a total celebration of everything from the 1980’s. Not only Chance a gifted artist and animator, he’s a musician, too. You’ll one of the songs from his <em>Old Souls… Young Hearts</em> CD.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Josh McLean and a performance from Heels.</p>

Episode 199: Lightnin’ Malcolm & A Hill Country Production
<p>Social media is rife with its ills. People sending chain stuff through Facebook Messenger has found its way under Ric’s skin. Since he suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder, it makes the holidays a little more difficult, especially at rude hours of the morning. Also in this show, a fantastic conversation with a Midsouth musician who is known all over the country, Lightnin’ Malcolm. Great stories, including a talk about the Grammy nominated R.L. Boyce (who was also booked that night but coudn’t make it due to a flat tire), a great performance and a wonderful story about his work with Robert Plant.

Episode 196: People In Pants
<p>When you go out in public, society would dictate you comport yourself in a manner which is not particularly offensive to the decorum of others. In this episode, Ric talks about a couple of recent trips into the public. These forays into the public eye are important not to mess up. Just ask a few certain people in Hollywood. For starters, don’t be all handsey and stop talking about your junk. Plus music from Leo Leo.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Cooking up something plus music from Mojo Medicine Machine.</p> <p> </p>

Episode 195: Broadcast Slackers
<p>New rules in play with the Federal Communications Commission will now allow your local radio station to operate without any local personalities or even cover local events. This is a pretty big deal. In this episode, Ric will explain what this means to you, the radio listener who might rely on your local stations to give you up to the minute information during some sort of emergency. This seems to be following the business pattern long established through history. As the industry begins to stumble, cannibalism begins to come into play. Eat the wounded to stay alive. Plus music from The Candy Company.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Ric in public and stuff.</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Episode 194: Tough Room
<p>One might overhear a conversation where two people are complaining about how Memphis fans are the worst. They generally don’t go to shows (especially when they have to pay a cover charge) and when they do, they complain. A lot. Yes, you don’t have to go far to find a tough room. In this episode, Ric tells you about how tough a room can be in Memphis and what happens when a Memphis artist plays in another city. You won’t be surprised by that answer. Plus music from Jupiter Stone.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: The irrelevance of the FCC. Plus music from The Candy Company.</p> <p> </p>

Episode 193: Dividing By Zero
<p>Our nation has become divided. About EVERYTHING. It all started with who is currently in the White House. We as Americans sure like a good fight amongst ourselves, at least. Then there are those out there who say this not a good thing. In this episode, Ric will tell you he thinks this actually a good thing. We should be divided over a number of things. How is that a bad thing? Plus music from Pengea.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Five dollars to make you holler. Plus music from Jupiter Stone.</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Episode 192: An Evolution is Coming
<p><em>From Radioland</em> has been in production for a while now. This, in of itself is rather remarkable. Over the years, we have tinkered with the show. The production of this show has always been about tightening things up and making some specific changes along the way. The fact there is a gulf of difference from episode 1 and this one is testament to how much this show has changed. In this episode, Ric will tell you about some of the changes that are coming in the coming weeks. Plus music from Hardaway.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Being divisive. Plus music from Pengea.</p>

Episode 191: The Old Man’s Lemon Tree
<p>It seems like a simple question. Why are some of the middle aged guys out there hell bent on growing a damn lemon tree? Think about it, there is a sub culture out there revolving around the apparent obsession of growing this little citrus tree. Is it some sort of weird mid-life crisis? Is it simply a matter of accomplishment? Or, is it because these guys need to have something useless to obsess over? In this episode, Ric delves into this weird slice of Americana to see what is going on. Plus music from The Rough Hearts.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Producing <em>From Radioland</em> from the producer’s chair. Plus music from Hardaway.</p> <p> </p>

Episode 190: Ancient History
<p>Perspective is a funny thing. Referring to “ancient history” depends upon how you were to define “ancient”. Google turned 19 years old this year, for example. Planking was a thing around 8 years ago. Both things vastly different. 1 of these things seems as though it has been around longer than the other which seems happened long before Google. In this episode, Ric takes a look at this perspective and how it shapes the thoughts and actions of today’s decision makers. Believe it or not, this shift in understanding the brief moments in history are affecting us all, right now. Plus music from Mark Edgar Stewart.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: The Old Man’s Lemon Tree plus music from The Rough Hearts.</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Episode 189: A Sense of Worth
<p>What is your worth? We’re not talking money here. One of the things we all have to contend with is this very notion. Are we defined by our lives? Does what we do every day matter to someone? What happens if I find what I like to do? Shouldn’t I just give it away? There’s a lot of questions. In this episode, Ric asks some more and discovers he really doesn’t have any of the answers. Plus music from J.D. Reager.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Ancient history. Around the time planking was a thing. Plus music from Mark Edgar Stuart.</p>

Episode 188: Judgemental Bastard
<p>Social commentary is what drives certain forms of entertainment. Even though we all do it, most of us don’t overtly do it and certainly not in public. Ric is not this person. In this episode, Ric will talk about the limits by which we all live. Everyone has their price, right? The concept of this episode explores that very price. Along with what would make you cross the very line you have drawn? Plus, music from Fresh Flesh.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: A sense of worth. Plus music from J.D. Reager.</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Episode 187: That Guy Is a Problem
<p>Borrowing from the <em>Radio Memphis in The Morning</em> bit, <em>How Not To Be That Guy</em>, Ric seems to have a problem with what some people are actually doing in the real world. What started out as a simple observation of some of the silly and harmless, yet stupid things people do ever once in a while has become what seems to be standard unapologetic behavior. Which begs the question, has there always been the same percentage of people in our society that are That Guy or is it we just see more of them? Plus music from Every Mother’s Nightmare.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Judge, Jury &#38; Executioner. Plus music from Fresh Flesh.</p>

Episode 186: Things Fall Apart
<p>The internet famous have finally come to a strange crossroads. These kids on YouTube apparently can’t deal with their self inclicted stardom and the pressures of creating meaningful content. Really? These people never paid attention to the inherent difficulties show business is wrought with. Now they are faced with such difficulties and are melting down. Publically. In this episode, Ric has some kind words of support for these people. Well, maybe not “kind” per se, but important. Plus music from Low Society.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: That Guy. Plus music from Every Mother’s Nightmare.</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Episode 185: Going Where I Shouldn’t Have Been
<p>You know that feeling you get when you go to some place where you really shouldn’t be? The thing about that feeling is that it is interesting experience. In this episode, Ric got that experience. Although he sort of had authorization, he got to go where few people get to see. Not that it is anything truly special but, getting to go into the storeroom of a grocery store is truly kind of special. Particularly when you get to see the space where all the beer is kept. Plus music from Carlos Ecos Band.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: The internet famous are falling apart. Plus music from Low Society.</p> <p> </p>

Episode 184: The Battering Ram Of The Trademark
<p>There comes a point when every artist needs to deal with the minutia of the business of show business. For the most part, their work falls within two places; copyright and trademark. In this episode, Ric sits down with Dianna Fryer and discusses the differences between a Copyright and a Trademark. It is a substantial difference. If you are an artist, you need to know this. The reason? Ask yourself this question, is what I have created original? Let’s take a look. Plus music from Kazha.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Behind the great grocery curtain. Plus music from Carlos Ecos Band. </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

Episode 183: Unoriginal Creativity
<p>The greatest gathering place for all humans (with access) is Facebook. The social media platform despite what you may think, fosters creativity. We’ve had this thing for awhile and yet, ask yourself this, “Have I seen anything like this before?” You probably have. 90% of the time. In this episode, Ric looks at the vacuum of creativity existing in this platform. He has talked about this before, but not to this extent. It would appear we have all arrived at the comfortable port of mediocrity. Plus music from Rachel Wise.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Copyright my Trademark or is it Trademark my Copymark? Plus music from Kahza. </p>

Episode 182: Buying Your Friends
<p>You have probably heard about the quiet trend in social media. It is where you are judged by how many followers or friends you have. So, to make themselves look good and hot, they acquire their friends. How? You buy them, silly. In this episode Ric breaks it down on how it is done and how some pages are so full of imitation likes and followers, it is pretty obvious. You’ll also learn how to spot them. Plus music from Bean.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: How is it we are all connected and yet there is nothing new to share? Plus music from Rachel Wise.</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Episode 181: Touched By The Long Arm of The Law
<p>It’s an interesting slice of Americana. The occasional notice from the government where your service has been requested. Well, actually demanded. In this episode, Ric gets the notice most people hate. Jury duty summons. The question remains, why would someone actually hate this? It is the civic duty of most Americans to be called upon to decide the fate of others in the court of law. It’s a heavy responsibility that for a lot people, don’t want any part of. God help you if you have to depend on the members of a jury who were too stupid to figure out how to get out of doing their duty. Maybe you should reconsider that. At least, not have any room to bitch about the laws of the land when they don’t take part in the process. Plus music from Andrew Cabigao.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: My Fake Friends and music from Bean.</p> <p> </p>

Episode 180: The Facebook Show
<p>On July 20, 2017, Ric took to Facebook Live and recorded this episode. If you missed it, fear not. Here is that episode. If you saw it, this episode contains a few things you didn’t see. There is something for everyone here. The focus of this episode is the discussion of the realities of how deep Facebook actually reaches. It seems substantial. Or, is it? Have we made more out of Facebook than what it deserves? Does it have the ability to affect groups and individuals as far as we have been led to believe? Also in this episode, music from Lightnin’ Malcolm.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Ric got something in the mail. Plus music from Andrew Cabigao</p> <p> </p>

Episode 179: Literally Playing With The Radio
<p>In it’s day, AM/FM radio was all the rage. Now, it is a mere shell of itself. Thanks to massive corporate ineptitude. In this episode, Ric gets to play with an actual AM/FM radio. This is kind of a big deal since Ric hasn’t spent anytime with one for about 6 years. Have things changed? They sure have. For the better? Nope. You’ll get to hear what he hears as he takes some time to listen to what is happening right now on the thing. Ric will also talk about what happened to what was once a magnificent industry. Plus, music from Booker Brown.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: The Facebook live show. 8:00PM Thursday, 20 July, 2017. Join Ric on his Facebook page to take part in a special live taping of From Radioland. </p>

Episode 178: Do Something
<p>What is it that you do? What does anyone do? These questions aren’t about your job. Not your occupation. What is it that you do outside of your everyday thing? In this episode, Ric talks about these very things as they relate to his own place in the world. In the past there has been the discussion or two about the audience doubling as a therapist (of sorts), here’s more on the subject. Also in this episode, music from Davy Ray &#38; The Janks.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Not recognized while the light is on. Plus music from Booker Brown.</p>

Episode 177: Back In The Saddle
<p>After under going some studio upgrades in Studio A, <em>From Radioland</em> is back in the studio with an interesting discussion regarding that one moment when we have all had enough of something. In this episode, Ric tells his story about reaching that threshold in a rather public way and ultimately fulfilling the fantasy of many people. Quitting a job right on the spot and managing to tell the boss the “F You Story”. Also in this episode, a reminder that the customer is not always right. Plus music from Solarflairs.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Playing catch up and working toward the upcoming Facebook live episode coming soon.</p>

Episode 176: Quality Control
<p>Recorded in one studio and edited in another, the irony here is not missed. In this episode Ric talks about a recent trip to a restaurant that was unable to meet certain expectations and the concept of appealing to the masses. Sadly, this business model is used in all sorts of aspects and creates a sense of blandness. Is this the American way of life now? Being bland? Plus music from Lions For Real.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: Back in the saddle.</p>

Episode 175: Strange Things & Their Existence
<p>Studio A is undergoing some upgrades. Because of that, From Radioland is out of that studio. This time, in the same room as Radio Memphis. The much talked about Studio B.

Plus music from Ghoultown.</p> <p>NEXT WEEK: A matter of quality control. </p>

Episode 174: No Apologies
<p>In this special episode From Radioland, Ric talks candidly about comedians and others who make (or do) ridiculous jokes or say inappropriate things. Then, immediately turn around and apologize for them. As Ric will tell you, this is not always the thing to do. “If you have to apologize for something, you shouldn’t have said it or done in the first place.” </p> <p>NOTE: This episode is running without our sponsors and a band due to the extreme nature of this show in particular. This was a decision to isolate those from an episode many might find offensive. We don’t speak on behalf of the bands or our sponsors and we decided to give them a week off. </p> <p>NEXT WEEK: What are we competing against? Plus music from Bean.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

Episode 173: Blow Me Down
<p>The weather got you down? It could be worse and for many in Memphis it was pretty bad. The third worst power outage in the modern history of the city occurred. Nearly a third of the city was plunged into darkness and as of the publishing of this episode, there are still a few dealing with the aftermath of the Week The Lights Went Out in Memphis.

Episode 172: You Ain’t Got It, Kid
<p>There are people out there who like to claim they are in “the biz”. This depraved group of people, thankfully a small group, are people who make these ridiculous statements when they have zero credibility to such claims. In this episode, Ric talks about these people who want to be in show business without paying their dues in real world experience and all the other little trappings that make the business what it is. According to Ric, these are people with a certain psychological problem. Also in this episode, you aren’t hearing things. There is a mouthy cat in the studio.

In this episode, Ric talks about his inability to suffer the moronic who walk among us.

<p>Part of being in show business is being that one person the audience wants. How is this done? Aren’t show business people exactly who they appear to be?
