WHO IS HANGEDMAN?
Hangedman began his broadcasting career in the ancient times when there was no internet, and radio stations had never heard of a CD.
As a belligerent self-important twenty-something, Hangedman started doing graveyard shifts with CHRW 94.9 Radio Western at the University of Western Ontario, back in an age when they let just about anyone in, including sullen youth with black eye-liner. After proving himself as a competent host and eager volunteer, he landed a weekly prime-time show called “Ear Food” with partner David Woodward. He also briefly ran the stations requisite Sunday morning classical music show.
Discovering a knack for this radio thang, Hangedman went on to formally study Television & Radio Broadcasting in college but never really pursued a career as he was seduced by big bucks in telecom and internet business and knocked-up his wife resulting in a totally sweet daughter!
Still Hangedman dreamed of reviving his old college radio fame and pitched his skills to CIUT 89.5 FM University of Toronto only to learn that in the age of 486 CPUs, college radio stations had waiting lists and were far more selective than during the awesome eighties!
Around this time the internet was born and so was amateur internet radio stations and podcasting of all sorts. Still dreaming of his broadcast hobby, he religiously followed the likes of digitalgnfire.com, rantradio.com, isnradio.com, distortedcircuitry.com and of course (as a avid pod pilot) his favourite, eve-radio.com. He pitched shows to several online streaming stations including eve radio and then waited, biding his time. (picture Gollum in his cave…my preeeeecious.)
Somehow, after repeated attempts, Hangedman slipped through the cracks and the folks at the Gaming Radio Network took note, heard his audition show and voila, a star was born! (Blame Shootner and Wiggles!)
Hangedman began broadcasting on the enormously popular eve-radio.com in the autumn of 2007. His weekly show Machina continues to run every Thursday at midnight (sometimes later) Greenwich Mean Time as part of eve-radio.com’s EDM Wednesday line-up. Machina t has become eve radio’s weekly musical staple of Industrial, EBM, elctro, futurepop, gothic and all manner of post punk subculture mayhem.
Aside from the great music, Machina has a small element of “talk radio” focusing on the world of dark music, science fiction entertainment; future technology, scene culture around the globe, and from time to time, a story or two about the tards that sadly make up a large majority of the human race. Hangedman’s irreverent humour, cynical approach and numerous guests of interest remain a favourite draw among listeners.
Thanks to his eve radio prowess, Hangedman charmed himself into the good graces of Edwin Somnambulist of isnradio.com. Via Edwin, Hangedman started doing local club DJ gigs starting with DJ Lazarus’s legendary Darkrave events. In January 2010, Hangedman formed the third of a trio (Sommnambulist, Dreamstate 7, Hangedman) in running Toronto, Canada’s premiere electro-industrial club night Neurodance (First Saturday of every month!) at Club Nocturne in. Hangedman also had the honour of a brief but glorious fill-in spot at the Kinetik Music Festival in Montreal in the spring of 2010 participated as a DJ at Kinetik 4 and 5 in 2011, 2012, respectively.
Hangedman also has the privilege of forming a DJ partnership with his beloved partner Saucy Miso who is a music aficiando and deck wizard in her own right! Both Saucy and Hangedman make their home in Toronto Canada with the kids a few animals and imaginary friends.
