ep11 Lost Canada Podcast
(this is very old)
mp3 | iTunes file

Zane dropped his bifocals in his car, down between the driver seat and center console. This prompted a half-crazed unearthing of stray chicken nuggets, a cache of Hello Kitty antihistamines, a desiccated land crab, a Molly Hatchet cassette, and this podcast. Might be worth a listen, I don't know.

ep11 Music For Storching
(a little late but claiming partial attendance)
March 2015
mp3 | iTunes file

Here it is, friends. Along with the young seedlings sprouting from the cold, packed earth, we emerged from our hibernatoriums after an arduous winter, rubbed our eyes in the sunlight, and sauntered off to the shed to fill our pie-holes with whiskey and 40-year old bubblegum. The tedium and icy frosts did little to dull our badinage, as evidenced in this latest of musical missives, should you care to listen. And oh, the songs we've gathered!
Let them be heard for a thousand winters!

V89-WVFS Tallahassee 19th Year Anniversary Broadcast
July 2013

The wait is over, dear listeners! After years of research and careful planning, the Sonic Safari team finally delivers their ultimate show, a majestic, gilt-edged tour de force!

After travelling the globe poring through troves of scratchy 45s for the perfect song (sometimes scaling sheer cliffs to reach elusive Himalayan thrift shops), as well as hiring professional writers for their on-air repartee, and frequenting only the finest King's Road boutiques to acquire their rakish disc jockey look, Zane and Jason have emerged with perhaps their most ambitious, nay transcendent work. This mammoth celebration of music, joy and technical artistry is less a "podcast" and more of a "broadcast." Well, actually, it is a broadcast, done over the radio waves from Florida State University's preeminent higher education frequency modulation facility, the stalwart V89.

With a lofty goal to coincide with the almost 20-year anniversary of the inaugural broadcast of Sonic Safari, our enterprising show hosts decided to escape the confines of a meager budget that forced them to quaintly record in a shed, and utilize the full resources of the University to bring their vision to life, including teleportation elevators, 5-star coffee service, thought-controlled audio playback devices, a very friendly robot, and a 118-piece orchestra.

Have a listen, and I'm sure you will agree, the result is nothing short of genius, an auditory spectacle of colossal beauty and timelessness.
