Justin Patrick Moore began his radio career at the tender age of twenty. With his head still full of acid he’d gone up to Yellow Springs, Ohio in search of the fabled utopia for radicals and misfits, Antioch College. While enrolled in the College he also found himself to be a student of a Western Mystery School. Having dropped out in the former, he has maintained his devotion to the latter. None-the-less, a number of Key Experiences were formative to his ongoing Work. Not to be underestimated among these was the radio show he founded, The Psychedelicatessin, a free-form audio-collage program on Antioch’s pirate station, Anti-Watt.
On returning to Cincinnati, the radio bug lay dormant inside him for a year, during which time he compulsively edited audio tapes. Soon it was flourishing once again, when he was introduced to the fun loving bunch of Queen City noisemakers behind the long running Art Damage program, which he had been a fan of since high school, and he was quickly recruited to the cause, becoming one of the rotating hosts during the early 2000’s. This was a time when Art Damage was flourishing with broadcasts from the likes of Ron Orovitz, C. Spencer Yeh, and John Rich, among others. His good friend Andy Hissett also became involved for a time, but later moved over to the other WAIF, 88.3 FM show, On the Way to the Peak of Normal.
During the time period when Art Damage was briefly off the air, due to sour station politics, Justin started filling in here and there for On the Way to the Peak of Normal, and soon became a part of the shows rotation of regular hosts. A number of years and shows later, Craig Kelly, the shows founder, decided to throw in his hat at the station to concentrate on mastering the grand piano in his living room. Honored by this responsibility, he took over the helm. It was as if all the previous years of his Radio Activity had caused the proper mutation inside his soul, making him the radio nerd he is today. With deep interests in literature, esoterica, the occult, and a broad taste in music, he continues to steer the show into a sorcerous sea infused with mysterious dreams. Justin is also a writer. You can read about what’s been going on in his textual life at his Sothis Medias website.
Andy Hissett has been making more-or-less musical noises alone or in various obscure southern midwest and northern southeast bands for over a quarter-century. He is primarily a drummer and percussionist, as well as a bassist, keyboardist, and occasional vocalist. Groups he has worked with over the years include: Mexican Pig Torture, Burning Giraffe, Toys Don’t Hate, Dionysian Tapestry, Death Hippy, And Siamese Urbain, Bulbous, Involution, Metanoia, Neato Torpedo, Chivalrous Dogs, Mystic Dub Star, Maybe, Subaudition, and Woodsprites. Recently he has concentrated on writing, recording, and performing solo material initially under the moniker Unfound Man, and presently as Liminal People. The songs on his first solo CD, Liminal Transfers, released 2010 by Sothis Medias, represent songs and fragments recorded 2001-2010.
A lifelong fan of esoteric and unusual music, he joined On The Way to the Peak of Normal in the early-to-mid 2000s after a brief stint on Art Damage.
