Need help with Ricky Jay search

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Need help with Ricky Jay search

Postby John Smetana » July 17th, 2008, 10:05 am

Hello all,
Do any of you have an archive of the short radio shows that Mr. Jay did for KCRW?..Archives are not available at the station.

Can you help?


Thanks in advance,
all the best,
John

Thanks PT...I appreciate your response and others I've received off line..I'm familiar with the site you mentioned, unfortunately the radio links on the site go nowhere.

all the best,
John

John,

I actually called the station on Wednesday to inquire about the past episodes. The receptionist who answered had no knowledge of the weekly broadcast Jay had done in 2003/2004 but transferred me to 'someone who would know' if they were still available.


Of course I only got voice mail but left a message with my contact information. Will let you know if/when I hear anything as I would also be interested in listening to those broadcast.

I have copies that I archived, but can obviously not distribute them. There are many other radio interviews with RJ that have appeared on public radio as well .. some are still out there while others have vanished. I guess I need to update my Ricky Jay Archive Page asap!
