BME/Radio Archive

Since there’s some interest in them of late, I’ve re-uploaded all of the old BMEradio interviews to my server. You can also download them from iTunes, and I would encourage anyone to feel free to repost them anywhere they feel like or push them into “the cloud” wherever makes sense. I’m not protective of their copyright and would much rather that they be readily available as they are an important part of body modification history and I’d hate to see them forgotten.

Here they are in alphabetical order (not broadcast order). All interviews by me unless otherwise specified. I can’t believe these are twelve years old now!
