After a 3-plus year run, "Insanity on the Airwaves" will be disappearing from the airwaves, culminating with an 8-hour live episode on Sunday, December 16th, 2001, from 12 Noon to 8 PM Central Time. The show is ending because the show's creator, Keith "Keeter Man" Rose has been forced due to his "normal" life to leave Appleton for Carnival Cruise Line as a show band musician. This is not an end to any means - the door is being kept open for resurgence, whether it is an online-only version or a return to WLFM if conditions occur.
"Insanity on the Airwaves" has been a comedy & dementia radio program that provides a platform for the exposure for comedy & dementia artists and musicians in the time that comedy music is an underground movement while "alternative" music is mainstream of the music industry. "Insanity on the Airwaves" had a modest beginning with its first show on October 4th, 1999, started with less than 20 CDs and no on-air experience. Today, "Insanity on the Airwaves" has risen to be a premiere comedy/dementia show in the College Radio ranks, both broadcasting locally and via the internet since its start. MANY artists have contributed to the cause of keeping the art of comedy & dementia music alive. The following artists have contributed music to "Insanity on the Airwaves":
" The Arrogant Worms " The Bobs " Ben Brooks " Les Barker " The Capitol Steps " Cab City Combo " Tim Cavanaugh " Cole Slaw & the Baked Bean Band " John Cougarstein " The Cowards " Peter Cook " Da Yoopers " Da Vinci's Notebook " The Dan Orr Project " Faust & Lewis " John Forster " The Four Postmen " Tony Goldmark " Dan Hart " Happy Schnapps Combo " Jim's Big Ego " Lurlene the Trailer Court Queen " Lester McFrawp " Sean Morey " The Mrs. Ackroyd Band " No Time " The Onion Radio News " Rob Paravonian " Henry Phillips " The Polkaholics " Power Salad " Raymond & Scum " Robomusic " Darryl Rhoades " Roto Rooter Good-Time Christmas Band " Eric Schwartz " Sponge Awareness Foundation " Stanford Fleet Street Singers " Sudden Death " They Might Be Giants " Throwing Toasters " Those Darn Accordions " Carla Ulbrich " Larry Weaver " Hot Waffles I would also like to thank the artists who either made live appearances on the show or did a pre-recorded interview with us: " "Weird Al" Yankovic " Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz " Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad " Members of the Happy Schnapps Combo " Tim Cavanagh " Da Vinci's Notebook There have been some artists that have gone "above and beyond" the normal contributions. " Tony Goldmark " Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad This run would have not been possible for me to maintain on my own. I have been very fortunate to have many friends help from time to time. The "Insanity Crew," as it has been dubbed, has been: " Devin "C-Dev" Kass " Jamie "Plain Simple Garak" Le Blanc " Jen "Junior Citizen" Zempel " "Trivial" Todd Wilkinson " Matt "Subman" Marks " Marianna "Lady Omniscience" Allen I want to thank all of my listeners for tuning into the show - I hope that I have brought you all a good mix of comedy & dementia in these past 2 years. I have had a great time these last 3 years on the air, and I will miss stepping away from the board Sunday evening. I have written a parody to commemorate the final show that will be the last track played on "Insanity on the Airwaves." The song is a parody of Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" entitled "Goodbye Insanity Show." Thank you to all that have been supportive of "Insanity on the Airwaves" and I hope that I sooner than later I can make the announcement that "Insanity on the Airwaves" will make its return. I forgot to mention that joining me in the final show will be Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad, and many of the co-hosts that have been on the show the past few years.
