This episode of Inspirado Projecto, “Killer Bees“, is Co-Hosted by Alec Smart and Sherman Sitter, from the infamous bicycle education improv troupe, “Don’t Feed The Animals“. The first time I encountered Alec and Sherman, they were performing variety shows on Venice Beach, along with a series of animals, robots, and other creatures. One minute, a rapper named PRISM rhymed about corporations, the next minute, Sherman educated us on how to recycle our trash bin on a Windows PC. They’ve re-visited KCHUNG Studio and contributed their talents to Inspirado Projecto on many occasions. In fact, they kicked off the Inaugural Episode!
Alec and Sherman The LCD Squirrel, interview Steve Brock, about his upcoming solo stageshow performance at the Los Angeles Fringe Festival, “My Calico Soul“. You can learn more about him and his other projects on his WEBSITE.
In addition to playing on KCHUNG 1630am Radiodials in Chinatown Los Angeles, Inspirado Projecto streamed visually on Periscope, which can be watched HERE!

Mike and I met on the set of “Black Pumpkin”, while we worked as Set Decorators. Through a week and a half of collaborating with him, I’ve learned he is an Engineer, Life Coach, Author, Alchemist, Teacher, Screenwriter, Inventor, Artist, and Mayor of San Pedro, who investigated health and how nutrition affects the organs and mentality of humans. He was led down a rabbithole in finding alternative methods to eliminate our top diseases and ailments with natural cures.
Brian and I met when I attended one of his Legendary Eclectic Egress Fests a few years ago. He wears many disguises, some of which are: DJ, Event Organizer, Sound Designer, Music Video Maker, Noise Musician, Album Designer, and Professor of Los Angeles Art Happenings. His upcoming event at SunSpace, Noisy Industries, is sure to knock your socks off, 6-2-2018!
This episode, “Noise Nutrition”, we present some Fun Facts by Henry D. Horse, played a very very rare Oingo Boingo song, presented a Brian D’vil classic, talked about Yachtley Crew news, spun one of Mike’s unique requests by B52’s, and… invented a brand new music genre which will soon sweep the nation! We also broadcasted LIVE on Periscope which can be VIEWED HERE!
It was an original experience, to be able to collaborate with these two artistic explorers of knowledge! They shall be back in the studio again before we know it!

Mundee 3-19-2018, Millie and Craig visit the KCHUNG 1630AM Chinatown Studios of Los Angeles, to join CEC in discussing intuition and the cosmos At Large. At the top of the hour, we introduce a few rare Raquel Meller songs. In between philosophizing, we also play a couple “Fun Facts” by Henry D. Horse, a song by Bobbie Deerfield, and a very special guest makes an unexpected appearance.
Craig brings a gift, the new graphic novel by Box Brown about Andy Kaufman, “Is This Guy For Real?” We also talk about the recent Yachtley Crew shows at The Rose, and the Hollywood Cares Poker Tournament at the Avalon, where I was able to meet Ralph Malph aka Donny Most from “Happy Days” and Joe Montegna from Chicago! It was such a fun and satisfying show all around. Captain Nicholas and I look forward to creating another show with Craig and Millie in the KCHUNG Studio again soon!
The fun thing is, while we broadcasted the show on Periscope, Stewart Strauss (one of “The Woodsmen” from Twin Peaks, featured also on the last episode with Blythe Baines and Carter Soso) popped in to check it out! Which can be viewed here)
This episode happened synchronistically with news of Tom Petty’s passing. Two weeks prior, I had just seen Petty perform for the first time ever, at the KAABOO Festival, for what could have possibly been his last live performance. He was a thrilling energy to be in the midst of. Soo many memories through the decades of hearing his songs on the radio and in music videos showed up all at once. I didn’t realize until seeing him live, just how many hits he’s created, that we’re all familiar with, so many soundtracks for so many moments in our lives. It felt great to hear mobs of music-goers spanning so many generations, all singing along to his melodies, along with my family and friends. This “KAABOO” episode shares the audio of one of Petty’s timeless classics, recorded that monumental night!
Tom Petty at KAABOO Festival 2017
There was an abundance of amazing art, comedians, arcade games, hybrid humanimal creatures, music and performance art happening in various places about KAABOO. If you took photos of some sculptures with your flash, a hidden designs appeared!
In addition to Petty, some notable musicians I got a chance to see, were Jane’s Addiction, Pete Yorn, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael McDonald, Muse, Pink, Eric Burdon from The Animals, Fishbone and others (some of which are played during this episode).
In addition to broadcasting audio on Chinatown’s 1630AM KCHUNG Radio, and streaming live on their website, this 10-2 episode also simultaneously motion-pictured itself in a digital visual format through Periscope. Another intriguing synchronicity happened with this episode. I had recently come across Robert Moss, a Shaman who talks about traveling through dreams and also contacting those who have passed. I planned to play his stuff during the broadcast, long before I heard about Tom Petty. As you know, the Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast with the Celebrity Medium, is a staple of Inspirado Projecto. The information braided together quite uniquely. As you know we are always enthused to play music/spoken word that is suggested to us through Twitter, our email, on the bus, etc. We played a wonderful collaboration between A.J. and Tara, a cover of a Roy Orbison classic by Katie Shorey (phenomenal singer/songwriter and the frontwoman for Twisted Gypsy the Fleetwood Mac Tribute), an astounding experimental sound collage by one of PQ Ribber‘s many projects: Boys Nitroglycerine Pep Club, information about the upcoming Yachtley Crew show at Borderline Bar & Grill November 3rd, new Fun Facts by our Resident Trivia Expert and Traveler Henry D. Horse, and a wholesome song by the Cactus Blossoms from Twin Peaks: The Return. There are of course, many other surprises as well!
(Alec Smart/Sherman Sitter and Captain Nicholas did an outstanding job steering the KCHUNG Ship across the Galaxywaves, 9-18, in their melodic episode: “Know Your Dragons” as well as their stream-of-orchestration: “After Thoughts“. A piece of that episode is found in this episode.)

On this KCHUNG Radio episode of Inspirado Projecto, “Rocket”, Captain Nicholas and Curt Clendenin investigate Druids, Wizards and Sorcerers. They broadcast LIVE on Periscope, the archive of which can be seen HERE.
Two ideas for this theme are “Oceanic” and “Rabbits.” The latest unique mystery lies in the most recently-discovered ” #runtherabbit ” and ” #outofhandtv “, both of which are imperative as the functioning engine of this sound collage. Yrev very reflective images emerge in various familiar masks during this KCHUNG Radio Hour of Inspirado Projecto.
We also discuss a yrev very cosmic Lynchian event that occurred. Back in May (a week or so before Twin Peaks Season 3 was released) 2017, I created a fun “AstroCoop” image of Dale Cooper dressed as an Astronaut floating through the Red Room. I was thinking about how he reminded me of David Bowie’s “…ground control to Major Tom…”, with Coop out there fused between dimensions trying to find his way back to Twin Peaks, traversing the curtains like heatwaves on Mars. At that point I had no idea the new season would focus on dopplegangers…
After watching each part I hop on the interwebs to see what kinds of new revelations have beamed onto Peakers’ antennae. On July 9th, immediately after watching Part 9, I opened up Twitter to see if other folks caught Easter Eggs that flew past me and/or that I might have also caught. On the Twitter feed I found a photograph that VERY YREV MUCH echoed similarities of my AstroCoop! I immediately sent it to Lawrence August and he artistically blended them together side-by-side:
This astounding accidental ‘prophecy’ was a gift all on its own….now to be able to archive it for my Futureself to look back on, as a strong example of how a series of antennae operating on similar broadcast signals can emerge from the stream-of-consciousness with similar fish!
