It’s been a while but FOTA Radio, the infamous #ds106radio show, is back and as brutal as ever.
This particular show looks at ideas of nostalgia, loss, obsolescence and the ways an oppressive government can bring these about, through the lenses of:
- The inner life of Clayton Christensen, disruptive action man.
- Two superb “Twilight Zone” episodes: “The Obsolete Man” and “Walking Distance“
- and the music and culture of (and the mainstream reaction to) the early 90s UK rave scene (specifically 1991-1994, as the underground culture built up to a clash with the mainstream of UK life)
The music of the UK Rave scene was characterised by the use of (often incongruous) dialogue samples, so you’ll hear a lot more stuff you recognise, both within the music and added by me.
As far as there is a story, you could imagine numerous characters attempting to return to and reassert their beliefs based on their formative years, only to find that their early years are not as innocent as they remember – precisely because of (their? others?) over reliance on a detailed examination of these beliefs.
I’ve used Cakewalk Music Creator 6, Audacity, and audio sourced from my personal collection and ripped from various video hosting sites.
