I still am producing KFOOZ radio shows for the members of the Fraternal Order of Zombo. Join today and get a free monthly Zombo custom radio show delivered to your doorstep.
I may get into Podcasting..alot of friends are bugging me to do it..I am not sure how to go about it..if you have any interest in it and know how to go about doing it...email me..
Lastly, I am not sure when or if any of my radio shows are airing on shortwave radio (WBCQ in Maine). Sadly, the program director and good friend, Michael Ketter has had a tragic accident and is not longer able to operate the station.. I wish him and his wife Gina, all the best.

Yes check out pittsburghnetradio.com to get your weekly Zombo fix.. Check their website, They should run around the early afternoon andrerun late nights. Expect the most surreal insane radio yet! Now how can the shows get any more outrageous..the show is hosted by 2 Zombos...What? You heard right. Get this. Z is pulling out all his old shows.. about 10 years worth of his radio hijinx from Ohio as well as Pgh. And not only will they be rebroadcasted but they will be "heckled/enhanced" with the Zombo of Today. AND.. now the show is agressively looking for radio syndication...any help and suggestions are welcome!



Wednesdays were quite the Zombo day. His show that aired from 4-6 on 88.3 WRCT in Pittsburgh has been voted "BEST LOCAL RADIO' by The City Paper this Fall, so alot of folks are tuning into the one of a kind madness that makes listening to the radio a wild experience.
Here are some real quotes from listeners. These are honest to goodness real, mind you.
Greg: "I have experienced brain damage this summer listening to your show. I can only get the signal in my car and therefore cannot get out of it until the show is over. It has no airconditioning and it gets very hot in there.
Chris: "I got turned onto the show by some friends, but never I could make any of the live dj shows because of my job. I just got fired last week and the first thing I told my boss was that now I can see Zombo Record Party live!"
If you have a quote, email it to me and I will post it!

His show on WBCQ, is getting many random slots aside from his new slot on Saturday afternoons (check www.complexvariablesstudio.com for times). With all this insanity going on, he and program director, Michael Ketter are shopping the shows around for nationwide FM distribution. Viva

Internet Radio Zombo?
WBCQ's website now will be carrying the entire Zombo catalog of shows on their internet webcasts.
These will be in random rotation for awhile, then will be play on demand. You will then be able to hear any of my past shows when ever you want. WOW!
