026 – Knott’s Berry Ghost Farm

Andy incorrectly remembers an amusement park name with great conviction. He is also wrong about the origins of the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room. Let’s face it, he doesn’t get a lot right in this episode. Lou finds wet hippie money in the wilderness. Jamie is required to change his pants in a casino. And a new superhero is created.

Grand Moffs of the powerful KTOO Advisory Board and haters of gibbons

You have to give KTOO credit for putting up with us for several dozen episodes, but we have finally been evicted. Two listener complaints, a riveting story in episode 24 labeled as “indefensible” (listen now!), the deeply offended cabal of the secret Community Advisory Board, and a soiled, burned studio carpet were just too much.

Bridge from Nowhere is like a re-occurring nightmare that scars my very soul. Offensive and disgusting. Also, I hate gibbons.
-Herbert F.

Gibbon haters

But the main reason is that we just don’t fit into the public radio mold, and Bridge from Nowhere is not what the typical, long-time KTOO member wants. Despite our parting we still want to thank KTOO for letting us record in the studio and for giving us a chance. Sorry about the carpet.

Bridge from Nowhere will keep on going! Listen anytime right here, or on iTunes and Stitcher.


Also, the papyrus font didn’t help.

BFN 022 – Llama Wrangling

Jamie tells of unusual ways midwesterners have fun with llamas, Your Favorite Sisters Alicia and Kirsa Hughes-Skandijs tell us about growing up rustic in West Virginia, Lou carbonates things, and Andy tries to pronounce words.


Damn it, Andy. Stop using Papyrus font. This isn’t a yoga den, Thai fusion restaurant, a weird smelly place that sells candles and bath salts, strip-mall “bistro”, or a cheap Alaskana gift shop.

I don’t know much, but I know that “Aaron Neville” caused the solar eclipse using that body pod. We talk to Jamie about his experience with the totality, Patrice Helmar talks about life in the big city, and Lou posits his Aaron Neville theory.
