The Abandoned Playhouse was our weekly radio broadcast on FM station KRUI.
It aired every Sunday from 10pm to midnight, Central time.
Recordings of some episodes have been stored HERE.

Below also are more or less the playlists. Not included are the layers of additional sound, including our own field recordings, added to provide context & a sort of deconstructing counter-narrative to the broadcast, in hopes of creating a more bearable radio experience for the two or perhaps three people listening. Also now provided are links to recordings of the shows, starting with January 19th, 2014.


7/6/14

This was, as far as we know, the last episode of The Abandoned Playhouse. We are sadder than we expected to be leaving it behind, but Urban Employment calls & we answer, like a starving, crippled dog lost in the wilderness, responding at last to the distant whistle of its cruel slaver.

Thanks again to “Tex,” who recorded the last hour of this show as it appears here. Also, this is a partial playlist. There was more in there but we can’t remember what.

[TRAGEDY: The Abandoned Playhouse has not aired on KRUI for a month, due to 1. The building which houses the KRUI studios has been locked every Sunday during the University’s winter break, making it somewhat difficult to get inside, and 2. The KRUI website (& thus the KRUI stream) has been down, indefinitely, which makes it all feel a bit more futile than usual. The show should be back on January 19th, just in case there is a single human being reading this who is even remotely interested. The good news is we’ve been trying to figure out a way to record the show, so we can post it up on the ol’ website for you to hear at your leisure.]

PERFIDITY AND DISMAY — our recording of this week’s show failed!!!!! And since our memory is about as useless, we are unable to make a playlist. To blame is our highly elaborate & hi-tech recording technique, which involves tuning our six-year-old mp3 player to KRUI & recording a 2-hour mp3 of the radio show FROM INSIDE KRUI’S STUDIO. This week, our old off-brand friend decided he didn’t want to cooperate — perhaps in protest of being dropped one too many times lately — and so all record of those magical hours were lost. Apologies to all the doubtless thousands of listeners who came rushing to this site upon hearing our solemn promises that playlists could be found here. Perhaps next week we’ll have better luck. And a better show. And more listeners. And a new mp3 player. And money in our checking account. And a ’64 Impala.

PS: If you are looking for any information about specific tracks, feel free to ask in this page’s comments.

Here is a reconstruction of what MIGHT have happened last night, to the best of our pathetic knowledge & not including sound layers added manually. You’ll notice some songs were repeated from last week — this is due to the fact that there is no guarantee that a single solitary human being even heard last week’s broadcast.
