Blog - Power Records PlazaI first posted about Power Records Plaza back in 2007. It looks like’s in mothballs now, perhaps it has completely fulfilled its mission? The site is dedicated to an obscure 1970s and 1980s record company named Power Records.

Here’s the cover of Power Records #16 – Man-Thing – Night Of The Laughing Dead (a story which abridges and adapts a story begun in Man-Thing #5, May 1974, written by Steve Gerber and with art by Mike Ploog and Frank Chiaramonte):

Power Records #16 - Man-Thing - Night Of The Laughing Dead

Night Of The Laughing Dead is a bizarre mix of existentialism and the supernatural. There’s a suicidal clown, the world’s strongest man, and another man that no longer reasons – one who functions only on emotion. That man is YOU …. for you are the Man-Thing!

I told you it was weird.

WFMU is looking for RADIO DRAMA

WFMU RadioThe listener supported New Jersey radio station, WFMU, is looking for a few good radio dramas…

WFMU is looking for Radio Plays for a possible weekly program of radio theater to start this October. Lo-fi, do-it-yourself stuff is OK. It should be suitable for broadcast, which means that it should be FCC-friendly, and you should be able to clear the rights yourself, or it should be in public domain. It should also be somewhat short, from 1-55 minutes.

Listeners Karinne Keithley, Danny Manley and Jason Grote are attempting to put together a radio play program for WFMU, and are looking for *recorded* radio plays and monologues, weird interviews, rants, found audio, etc. The more idiosyncratic the better.

They’ll consider everything, but they’re not after 1920s nostalgia acts so much as sound-driven art that redefines and expands the idea
of what radio theater can be. If you’re unsure whether or not what you’ve got is a legitimate radio play, it probably is what we’re
looking for. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR RECORDED AUDIO MATERIAL ONLY.

Lo-fi, do-it-yourself stuff is OK. It should be suitable for broadcast, which means that (1) it should not contain any obscenities as defined by the FCC, (2) you should be able to clear the rights yourself, or it should be in public domain, and (3) it should be somewhat short, from 1-55 minutes. Under 20 minutes is ideal. Most but not all silence is generally to be avoided.

We are not looking for unsolicited scripts at this time but we’ll let you know if that changes.

Submissions:

Mp3/Zip/other files should be posted to Divshare, Sendspace, or whichever such site you prefer, and links emailed to:

jason [at ] jasongrote.com

CDs or other recorded materials should be sent to:

Jason Grote – WFMU radio theater project
c/o New Dramatists
424 West 44th Street
NYC, NY 10036

Deadline: if you’ve got something, please send it immediately, but if you’re looking to prepare something: July 8, 2008.

Somebody send them some SFF content! I’m pointing at you Bill Hollweg.
