The Motor Excursion Ruffians #2

I know I haven’t been doing too many episodes of The Overnightscape lately (more are coming soon)… but there’s a LOT of new stuff on The Overnightscape Underground One feature that I’m really excited about is “The Motor Excursion Ruffians #2”. It’s a road trip with my friend Peter down to Virginia, where we meet up with our friend Bryan. It was recorded on April 4-5, 2003 – right at the start of The Overnightscape (between episodes 4 and 5).

The crazy thing is, this 9-part, 8.5 hour show has never been heard by anyone – until now! I don’t know why it took me so long, but after nearly 6 years, it is finally available for you to listen to!

Here is Part 1. And you can find all 9 parts here.  Plus, here a photo gallery of pictures from the adventure.

The Overnightscape on Luver Internet Radio

I mentioned on The Overnightscape Underground that I was going to be voting for Frank Moore for president. He heard the show and contacted me, thanking me for my support. He also mentioned the idea of adding The Overnightscape to the lineup of his Internet Radio Station, (Love Underground Visionary Revolution). I thought it was a great idea. So, The Overnightscape will now air on Luver 9:30pm-11:30pm on Fridays (Pacific Time). Check this page for info on how to tune in.
