Welcome to the first episode of Fortress of Baileytude Showcase Presents, an irregular show here at the FOB Network that is all about whatever I happen to feel like talking about at that moment. There is no set release schedule. There is no set format. Like The Commitments, it will strike and then slink back into the night from whence it came.
For this first go round I invited Joe Crowe (co-director of the American Sci-Fi Classics Track at DragonCon and part of the Revolutions SF site and RevCast podcast) to stop by and talk about Songs and Stories About The Justice League of America. This was an album of…well, songs and stories about the JLA that was first released in the late 1960’s and then re-released in the 1970’s. Not only do we play the themes and stories about Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Metamorpho, Plastic Man and Flash but Joe and I talk about these characters, our experiences with them and why they are so awesome. It’s a fun two hours that is meant to tie-in, however tangentially, to some big budget Justice League film that is currently in theaters.
Many thanks to Rob Kelly for helping me out when a few of the tracks I had from this album proved faulty. You can check out his thoughts on the album by clicking on this link.
I also mentioned an episode of Views From The Longbox that I recorded with Shag, Tom and Stella that went through the Total Justice CD that was released in conjunction with that toy line. You can find that episode by following this link.
Next Time: A discussion of some sort. I mean I have something recorded but it seems contrary to the random nature of this show to say what you can expect or when you can expect it.
