Geo. Stewart

My Autobiography by Me.

I'm Geo.

Mr. Stewart was born on a mountain top in Tennessee at a very young age. Three years later he killed himself a "b'ar" in Reno just to watch it die. After a surfeit of education and a deficit of employment, he found himself in radio, where he won renown as the inventor of "Traffic and Weather on the Nines." His fortune made, he spent his declining years in a vain effort to play every known novelty record one last time. Crazy College was born.

Geo's broadcast career goes back to the days of free-form "underground" radio, but he puts food on the table (using a plate in most instances) as a scrivener at an advertising agency and as the Director of Special Programming for the Philadelphia Film Festival. He is also an award-winning producer/director/writer of commercials and industrial videos. His film criticisms, interviews and reviews have appeared over the years in FilmFax/Outre Magazine, Cool & Strange Music Magazine, The TLA Film & Video Guide, Rewind Magazine, and the critically acclaimed book by Ray Murray, "Images In The Dark". He likes long walks, children (if properly prepared by a certified fugu chef) and the collected poetry of Geetz Romo.

One Christmas back in the early 1960s, Stewart"s good behavior was rewarded with a reel-to-reel tape recorder where he and his posse would enact radio dramas for their own amusement. In 1971 he joined the University Delaware"s WHEN carrier-current station where he soon began polluting the airways late Saturday nights from 2 AM to 6 PM with obscure psychedelic tunes from England and beyond. Side Two was born.

In 1984 it was clear that Mr. Stewart was growing too old to rock and roll. He began looking for a program that would tolerate his growing senility. A solution was to be found in his ongoing exploration into musiques outre, leading to the development of Crazy College, now heard locally on 91.3, WVUD - FM Sunday evenings at 7. Since then the number of venues documented to have carried his show at one time or another include five-year stints on WHYY-FM and Shokus Internet Radio, WDIY and Global Community Radio. If you're not getting Crazy College on your local public broadcasting outlet, ask yourself why (and don't donate until they pick up the show; trust me it's more worthwhile than another crumby tote-bag.)
