Late to the party, but Welcome to Night Vale is AWESOME.
Described as 'A Prairie Home Companion' as written by Stephen King, it's a fake newscast covering local events, that skew to dark humor and dark horror at a moment's notice. Riffs on every imaginable conspiracy theory. A little Art Bell, a little X-files, a little Affirmation Nation with Bob Ducca.
Don't believe me, check the reviews in itunes.
If you don't have time for the entire podcast [episodes are only about 20min each], rummage through Night Vale Weather;
their weekly music selection. Some of the most consistently excellent obscure or minor label music around.
All Redd [Foxx] did all day was coke, grass and ****. . .
So our first network taping, name in big letters right on the set, Redd doesn't arrive at curtain call.
I go back to his dressing room, all I see is the girl doing his hair is sitting on him.
So I see her body, her dress, and his legs.
I say, Redd, don't you know we're on camera?
Redd sticks his head up from between the hairdresser's legs and asks indignantly. . .
