Stranger Than Fiction – Loads of 80’s Shows on Mixcloud

March 26, 2014

Ok. You’ve heard me gush on about a program I listened to obsessively in the early 80s – KBOO’s Stranger Than Fiction. Some of you might be sick of hearing me talk about it but if my stats are to be believed, lots of people land here searching for that show.

The awesome news for those of you that have been searching is that one of STF’s hosts –  Mr. B. – has been furiously uploading airchecks of programs to Mixcloud.

As I’ve stated before, the show was an amazing mix of New Wave, Prog, novelty music, Punk, Pop, Ambient (before it was called Ambient) and more – even a smattering of comedy from time-to-time.

If you were a fan of this show (which ran for over 14 years!) you’re in for a real treat. If you’ve never heard it and want to hear some pretty incredible 80s ‘underground’ radio, consider yourself similarly treated. He’s posting shows from random time period’s of the show’s run. 
He’s even got a large chunk of the final show.

Check it out!



  1. So are these original shows? We used to have a show in Kansas City on Friday nights during the 90s called Planet in My Kitchen. I wish they do something like this.

  2. Yes! These are the original airchecks, uploaded by the original host himself. The shows range from the late 70s and into 1992, when the program ended.
