(BONUS) Incognito Johnson: Murder, Madness and Madrigals

Happy Halloween! This isn't a regular episode of Witchpolice Radio. It's not even an episode of Witchpolice Radio at all. At various points over the past couple of years, I've been recording episodes for a potential second podcast called 'Incognito Johnson' with my pal Alex Seville, who now lives out in San Francisco.Here's a sample episode, about a 16th Century composer known for murder, witchcraft, and other spooooky stuff. It's not an interview, but more of a "listen to this crazy shit" story about a historical (musical) figure.|If you're some kind of expert on the life of Carlo Gesualdo and I got a bunch of stuff wrong... sorry. Blame the authors of the articles I read as background! I cite at least one or two of them in the episode and when I get time will add links to this page.If you like this episode, please let me know. We have more of these recorded, and I'm trying to figure out how (or if) I should properly release ...

WR632: Cole Peters

On this episode, I talked sound art, field recordings, tapes and more tonight with experimental artist Cole Peters, who released a couple of limited-edition cassettes over the past few months.As you'll note in the intro, the podcast gods were out to get me on this one, but even technical difficulties aplenty couldn't stop me from getting this conversation into your earholes, so bear with some less-than-ideal audio -- the interview is worth it.

WR631: Bobby Dove

I was really excited about interviewing Brandon (by way of Montreal) country troubadour Bobby Dove, whose outstanding ‘Hopeless Romantic’ LP is easily one of my favourites of the year so far.We talked about the transition from big-city Quebec to small-town Manitoba, releasing an album while the world was locked down, bummer songs, THAT VOICE, and much more.
