    Shockwave Radio Theater
    It was 40 years ago this month that I first came into KFAI radio studios and joined the crew on the old SHOCKWAVE show. I have been a volunteer ever since then. To commemorate this anniversary I am digging through the archives and presenting a few of the Shockwave broadcasts and live performances that we did so long ago.
    — Jerry S.

    Shockwave, June 19, 1986.
    Events at the
    St. Paul Spaceport Lunatennial Celebration. Includes the Milk Carton Satellite Race, the Skyway Marathon, Hands Across Anoka, and more. An air check of the broadcast, featuring Jerry Stearns, Dave Romm, Brian Westley, David Cummer, and Kara Dalkey.

    Cable Video in the Spaceport
    Brian Westley, Dave Romm and Jerry Stearns talk about some of the Cable TV programming available in the St. Paul Spaceport. The date is somewhat obscure, but sometime in the mid 80s.

    Shockwve Radio
    The Fall of the House of Usherette

    A comic mystery story in four acts, interspersed with a
    Dudley DoRight cartoon and an adaptation of #6 of the Cerebus the Aardvark comics by Dave Simm.

    These live SHOCKWAVE performances were usually the opening ceremonies of the Minicon science fiction convention, but this year (Minicon 19, 1983) the convention theme was “Backward into the Future”, so, though this was the first event it was also known as Closing Ceremonies.

    Shockwave Radio
    Colorized Radio

    Live from
    Minicon 23, 1988, we have representatives of the local cable companies trying to sell service to the audience. (This was before the Internet, so bare with us. And remember it’s aimed at hardcore Science Fiction Fans, so the content should not be surprising.) Includes the award-winning Vince Washburn, New Age Detective, and Star Trek: The Baby Boom Generation.
