The Rampler – A New Experimental Overnightscape Project

The Rampler

This is an idea that has been brewing for awhile, that suddenly all came together for me yesterday. I figured, what the heck, may as well get it going immediately – if it doesn’t work out, no big deal. It’s an experiment. Here is the description from ONSUG:

Join host Frank Edward Nora his daily commute, walking through the streets of NYC, as he discusses a dizzying myriad of topics. This show is an experimental “spinoff” of Frank’s main show, The Overnightscape (which continues on as normal). The show is recorded directly as a 128kbps MP3 file on an Edirol R-09 portable recorder. This makes it much easier to release the recordings, since no post-production is required. Also, at least to start with, the shows will be released without show notes to further speed up the release process.

“The Rampler” is released here on The Overnightscape Underground, but it exists outside the standard “Day” format – again, to make it easier to very quickly record and release.
