Bran Flakes Interview

program date: 
Fri, 07/02/2010

Dr. Zomb and Rich L. in an informal telephone chat with Otis Fodder and Sir Mildred Pitt of The Bran Flakes.

The Bran Flakes have been crafting insanely upbeat songs since 1998, utilizing the cool and strange thrift store sounds we all love so much and making absurdly cheerful and danceable music. They have released seven full-length albums and have made countless appearances on compilations, as well as touring with a lively stage show.

The Bran Flakes - who are touring with the Evolution Control Committee - will be appearing on July 3rd at The Rotture (315 SE 3rd Ave., Portland OR) at 9pm.

I filled in on Friday night from 10 to midnight but stayed late and did about the first 45 minutes of The Outside World for Daniel. The playlist has some holes in it and covers up to when Daniel took over completely.

Love the show

Hey, I was introduced to your show through a website, they've been following you pretty heavily, and I gotta say I love it, you play some incredible music my man.

Happy New Year to YOU, Dr. Zomb

this new years show is making my night!  can't wait to see the playlist...  SO DELICIOUS!!

Amazing Show

Did the archives arrive? Your web crew has done AMAZING work the past year!!! 

Dr. Zomb's archived shows

I have a personal backlog of archived show MP3s that stretches back to around 2005 or so. There are some gaps in the collection (due to vacations, etc.) and a few are lower quality due to a bad stereo, but they're still a blast to go back and listen to..

 I don't know what KBOO's policy is regarding such recordings, but I'll gladly make them available to the station if they don't already have an archive.


We're definitely working here to bring you streamable archives of the past two weeks of all our programming.  Stay tuned!


I totally agree with Mindwrecker. Archived shows would be AMAZING! It's very hard for me to tune in to the show as I live on the opposite side of the country.

Dr Zomb's Stereo Obscura

As usual, thee good Doctor's playlist's look like/sounded like a good show. Now all that is missing is: ARCHIVED SHOWS!
SOME archived shows, at least a sample-selection would make KBOO's site handier.
