Death Club Radio…Live!

My titan of badass wife, Alane Cameron Ford, and I have this radio show that airs every Thursday at 12:30PM (EST) on WRIR 97.3 called Death Club Radio. The show is about death, dying, grief and loss and done in an interesting and amusing way.  I play the co-host average joe, asking the questions that we may all ask about the topic. Plus, I get the honor of having my own segment called the Daily Something Weird, which is about freaky things related to death, etc. For instance, the Kentucky Meat Shower.

The last few months we have been working with the Firehouse Theatre, taking the experience to a next level by bringing the show to the stage in front of a live audience every other month. We basically record two shows with an intermission in between, and then they get aired on the radio at a later date. We have committed to this for a year, and will hopefully get renewed for another in 2019. The show is given more OOMPH with the live audience, especially with their participation, plus we bring more guests, visual aspects and actually have to perform!  So far we have found the whole thing invigorating. It is a fantastic time and I recommend you join us!

The next Death Club Radio Live! is Wednesday, September 19th @ 7PM!

Richmond Young Writers Summer Workshops

Richmond Young Writers are a great group of people.  They offer writing sessions nearly all year round to young aspiring writers ages 8-17.  A creative bunch, not only the instructors, but the kids that show up as well.  I was lucky last year to be able to be a guest writer with my pal, Julie Geen, for their Summer Sessions and I have been asked back this year!  So, if you have a kid 11-13 interested in getting their creep on, sign up for this one!  (June 17-21, 10am – 1pm) There is also a great variety of other themes with other guest folk like Meg Medina, Lana Krumwiede, Hershel Stratego, and Dennis Danvers.  Good stuff.

Check out the website, and sign them up!

Also, Beth Brown and I are being interviewed about Richmond Macabre 2 on the WRIR 97.3 local media news program, Open Source.  The air date will be announced soon!
