A fun radio program

“Smarter Than The Average” is radio program that airs on Resonance 104.4fm in London. They broadcast on the internet, but I missed the original airing of the first show when it played a couple months ago. The good news is, the hosts Julian and Jonathan have reconstructed and posted the audio for all to enjoy. It’s a fun, hour-long show where they play all kinds of animation related audio, some familiar, some not so common. Give it a listen and if you like it, tune in when they broadcast “Smarter Than The Average 2: The New Batch” on April 3rd, repeating on April 10th.

Here’s the link to audio of the original show.

Update: fixed the date (I had it wrong). Thanks Chris for pointing that out.

    Might as well check out the radio show! I think Jonathan has help a close pal of mine in obtaining footage for a project he’s already getting some attention to, but I dont’ want to spill the beans on here just yet, but I’m a part of it as well.

    Would be neat if these guys did it as more of a podcast, but at least they’re taking their time on this.

    Sould also be pointed out the next show is said to be in April, not May, just to let you know.

  3. Thanks Chris, I updated the post. They threw me off with that whole day before the month thing! ;)

  4. You’re welcome! Just had a chance to listen to the show tonight, and I found it to be quite interesting, though I’m rather more interested in the conversations and the interviews over the music itself. Funny how that for the first show they dragged out the insipid tune from “Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue”. I think we all wanted to forget that! These guys outta get a podcast like you! A friend of mine’s already psyched up to doing a podcast himself devoted to Japanophile-related items (anime, J-Pop music, videos games, etc.).

    While not giving away too much info, a person I’ve been working with has been wanting to put together a reconstruction/restoration of Richard Williams’ masterpiece, “The Thief and the Cobbler”. Jonathan Sloman has contributed to the cause in giving him a copy of a documentary shown in Britian about Richard from the late 80′s, and I’ve submitted a few things as well. Again, I don’t want to create too much attention to this, though my close friend has already spotted flak about it on a video game message board he went to, so I guess it’s starting to make some noise out there without me chipping in my two cents.
