The Paleface Parabola - 07-12-2022( 1:57:53)       
Episode Information
Caper 54 is even more of a curiousity than whatever passes for normal in our brief history of making with the crash, boom and bang as an adopted son of Free 89 / Media alliance of the mystery man’s and mine being part of this radio empire. This week’s Parabola has music and news and station promos and more fun than an hour and 58 minutes should allow. Jump in. The water’s fine.

Episode Information
I’ve been think lately that the advertisement about the Rock and Roll history show was becoming bogosity. I wasn’t playing much. I got about three quarters thru this show and thought that it’s time to let the lions loose. So we did. Caper 53 of the Paleface Parabola took flight.. So come home to Free FM and be our rock n roll friends!

Episode Information
When I was growing up in the 1960s, my listening weapon of choice was a transistor radio. I now have spent half my life volunteer hosting and programming shows, and reached the one-year mark at Free FM this week. So props to the following... My producer and editor the Mystery Man. Free FM management, Mike and Phil for handing me the keys to the Wednesday night pole position, and the other Free FM hosts for setting a place at the table for us. Forward to year Two!

Episode Information
Caper 50, the latest plot twist in our time well spent at Free FM, is the pest who won’t leave the party at 3am. It’s the test of the pressure points that speak to man’s radio fate going forward. It’s a one hour and 58 minute blunder. It’s also a lot of hard work. Thanks for listening. Please….

Huzzah! It was the producer of the Parabola’s Birthday yesterday. Being a man of mystery, his age shall remain one as well. Caper 48 of our show just might be better than birthday cake. I’ll be the first to test that theory. Pass the plate and look out world, I’m in the express lane to a sugar buzz!

Episode Information
Greetings from the eighth tier of a parking garage in Newark, NJ. An unusual location for an unusual show. The crimson and gold leaves of autumn are a beauty to behold and we’d like to think this two-hour tour de farce is too. Your ears, and infinity as well, are now on trial.

The Paleface Parabola - 12-10-2022( 1:57:47)       
Episode Information
Pressed for an answer on the glaring absence of a two-hour tour de farce last week, the producer of the program (aka the Mystery Man) quoting The long lost underground comic character/nudist Mr Natural, advised the inquisitor,‘Twas ever Thus!' and returned to whelping this week’s saga into fit and trim shape. After wading thru some 30-odd robo calls about his business Google listing, the host (aka Jumpin JB) growled ’And as it pertains to caper 46 of The Paleface Parabola,so it shall be!'

Episode Information
Caper 45 was one way. At least it was the night before. When the bell rang to start our quest, we tossed a bunch of music up in the air and picked out what landed in plain sight. The rest were like Prince’s guitar after scorching While My Guitar Gently Weeps years ago. Neither his guitar or our CDs appear to have ever been seen again. I’m a fan of alchemy unintentional. And maybe in an hour and 58 minutes, you will be too.

Episode Information
Here’s what was recommended to me by a sermon this past weekend from the Book of Ecclesiastises. You know, the one that Pete Seeger wrote/stole Turn Turn Turn from. Chapter 11 recommendeds that you rejoice, cherish, and enjoy every moment under the sun. We recommend that you apply the same tactic while cheering on the antics of caper 44 of the Paleface Parabola from the mothership of Free FM 89.0

So Lizzie the 2nd made it to 96, and 70 years of taming lions around the seven seas, eh? If she really wanted to see what rough was, she should have tried 40 years of volunteer radio futility. Like me. Yoga, shmoga. You need to get good and loose? An hour and 58 minutes of this week’s Paleface Parabola, caper 43, is cannily crafted to create some lotion in your ocean.

It’s been humbling starting all over again on a new radio station in a new radio world. I’ve never had an ego about these matters... I’m simply glad that there’s a soft landing for caper 42 of the Parabola on Free FM. So listen early, often, and daily and we’ll both be better for it.

Casting a shadow of a proportion as yet rarely seen by mankind, only equaled by athletes who have to follow legends at their position, and the size of Donald Trump’s fast food and golfing cart arse. Caper 42 of the mystery man and mine’s quest for community radio fortune and glory celebrates the uncommon weekly. Like this week. Try us on for size.

Episode Information
There’s fear and loathing from studio A this week, as we work our way thru the fallen soufflé of our hour and 58 earschplittenloudenboomer. Music, Myth and Mirth with three teaspoons of Alchemy because two isn’t nearly enough. You are not wrong to be skeptical.

Your sojourn will be 1 hour 58 minutes this week on Caper 39. The cost of your climbing into our leaky boat? We think it’s a bargain. Your ears!

Here I go again… Tom Waits once growled 'When I was younger, I wanted to be older. Now that I’m older, I’m not so sure’. I feel the same after having lived long enough to see a glimpse into Hell this past weekend, of The con man, MTG, and that phantom of Fake news posing for a picture at a Saudi Arabia golf tournament! Catharsis comes in the guise of a Parabola! Join me as we rage against the dying of the three-chord light tonight. And all week 'til we meet again next week.

t’s finally time. And that time is today. Tom Waits once quite rightly and righteously shared the following ’Now that we can find out anything we want,there’s a deficit of wonder left’. That said, how bout you wander our way this week to the porch of the Paleface Parabola? Music and mouthing off dead ahead. We’ll leave the light on for you.

You want fireworks? Would you settle for sizzle? Maybe fizzle? Shazizzle! Because there’s nothing that promotes a post 4th day of July Parabola than a two-decade old culture reference. But after all is said and done, our radio show is but a passing fancy in a Tangerine Dream.
