Crossfire Radio (CFR) will on Wednesday the 12th September at 730pm attempt a world first broadcast that combines music with comic book interaction.
As part of a 200th anniversary edition of their Wednesday Supplement magazine show, CFR will premiere the new, specially commissioned concept album by Paul Limb, The Time Fixers. As the album is played, a comic book will be released page by page in CFR's Forum and on a post in Facebook, to time with moments in the album, so that listeners can follow the story both musically and in comic book format, expanding both their understanding of what is happening, and immersing the listener in a multi-media experience.
The special anniversary show, which starts at 12pm on Wednesday 12th September, is a 13 hour sci fi & horror extravaganza, bringing the best in radio drama from the 1950s to modern times, along with music with a sci fi & horror themes, including Kate Bush, Black Sabbath, Toyah, Iron Maiden, ELOY, The Alan Parsons Project and more.
At 730pm, main feature, the concept album The Time Fixers by Paul Limb will begin its performance, and the comic book pages will appear in specially pinned posts in the Forum and in FB. For the CFR Forum, you can find the post to both follow the comic and comment on the show HERE.
Crossfire Radio co-owner and DJ for the TWS special is the creator behind the comic book adaptation and says, "CFR's mission has always been to bring great music to listeners, and we've always made sure we make time for independent creators like Paul, and I'm particularly thrilled with this collaboration between the station and a great musician like him." He adds, "We're pretty sure nothing like this has ever been attempted before, so another first for radio experimentation comes to Crossfire."
Paul Limb, composer, concept and musical performances, as well as production and mixing, is similarly thrilled to have the opportunity to see his music given prime time broadcasting. "It's my most ambitious work to date, and I can't wait to see, and hear, how it translates out there in radio-land."
That's The Time Fixers by Paul Limb, on CFRXtra at 730pm on Wednesday the 12th September.
