This show originally aired on November 18, 2017.
This week on Sound Effect, our theme is "Can’t Let Go." KNKX newsies Ariel Van Cleave and Ed Ronco reminisce about their obscure instruments. Then we talk to Jillian Venters, who gives advice to people of the gothic subculture, including those who are aging within it. Next, we head to Tacoma where a man is making an effort to celebrate author Frank Herbert. Then we take a ride in one of the oddest vehicles you’ll ever see: a hearse, decked out in pink, and available for parties. We get out of the hearse and back into the studio to talk to a man about why he’s convinced the earth is flat. The show wraps up with us meeting a woman who made a trek into the woods to say goodbye one last time to her dog…but couldn’t completely let go.
Sound Effect is your weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by KNKX's Gabriel Spitzer.
