Podcast: Coyle & Sharpe: Ep. 1: Maniacs in a Living Hell

| 1 comment


In the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. Today, their humor is a cultural touchstone for artists as varies as Henry Rollins and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

These recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal's daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their website or on MySpace. Their recent box set is These 2 Men Are Imposters.

Scott Dikkers served as Editor-in-Chief of The Onion from 1989 to 2000, when he left for the warmer climes of Hollywood. He returned to The Onion in 2005.

We talk with Scott about The Onion's newest venture: Onion News Network. It's one of The Onion's most ambitious ventures into non-text media, and will feature parodies of cable news, Sunday-morning talk shows and C-Span. The network's motto is: "You'll never read again."
