Episode 183: Unoriginal Creativity

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.

NEXT WEEK: Copyright my Trademark or is it Trademark my Copymark? Plus music from Kahza.

Episode 182: Buying Your Friends

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.

NEXT WEEK: How is it we are all connected and yet there is nothing new to share? Plus music from Rachel Wise.

Episode 181: Touched By The Long Arm of The Law

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.

NEXT WEEK: My Fake Friends and music from Bean.

Episode 180: The Facebook Show

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.

NEXT WEEK: Ric got something in the mail. Plus music from Andrew Cabigao

Episode 179: Literally Playing With The Radio

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.

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.

Episode 178: Do Something

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 & The Janks.

NEXT WEEK: Not recognized while the light is on. Plus music from Booker Brown.

Episode 177: Back In The Saddle

After under going some studio upgrades in Studio A, From Radioland 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.

NEXT WEEK: Playing catch up and working toward the upcoming Facebook live episode coming soon.

Episode 176: Quality Control

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.

NEXT WEEK: Back in the saddle.

Episode 175: Strange Things & Their Existence

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. In this episode, Dianna Fryer sits down with Ric to talk about new programming coming to Radio Memphis among a vast array of things. Plus music from Ghoultown.

NEXT WEEK: A matter of quality control.

Episode 174: No Apologies

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." 

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. 

NEXT WEEK: What are we competing against? Plus music from Bean.
