Tragam a Sobremesa!
In English: "Bring out the dessert!"
The content of the main show page is updated every week just before or right after the episode has been broadcasted.
Then, all shows will be available for you in that page to listen and download. Enjoy!
Short description of the idea
"Tragam a sobremesa!", It only takes one weekly hour of broadcast, but it certainly was one of the most complex, interesting and time consuming projects I've ever been involved with.
The show is produced in my home studio, using a computer, sound editing software, a multitrack recorder, a mixing board with effects processor and various microphones.
Rather simple technology really, but fairly enough to bring all environments and characters to life, although all voices inhabit the same body.
Perhaps i should choose a better name for the show, or even for the imaginary station where everything takes place, but i'm not good with those. Very seldom i like the names i choose.
Along with the main presenter and owner of the station, the folowing characters are almost in every show:
- Doutor Albano Galhetas:
He used to be a rural doctor and a preast, but for a very short period.
In the 60s, he refused to work as informer for PID portuguese secret agency, and is in love with Cinda, the woman who cleans up the station.
Despite his natural vocation, Galhetas is much more a good person than a briliant intelectual.
He acts as the voice of consciousness, telling about right versus wrong, good or bad, appropriate against inadequate.
- Djãu da Silva:
A portuguese professional radio journalist raised in the USA, who travels around the world looking for uncomun storys and weird news.
A guy with a carefree mind of his own, who likes food and adventure. He misses work and goes on sudain and unexpected vacation periodes, leaving work and all the rest behind, but thats ok.
- Professor Esquizofredo:
The psychiatrist of the station, a boring old man who is fascinated by every kind of studys, even those that make no sense at all.
He's capable of producing special potions that cause unpredictable effects and other weird inventions. He was born unusually inteligent, and with his underware.
During his rare moments in the show, by telephone or in presence, things get mixed up and confused, but there's always a happy ending.
Hired for cleaning up services, this woman is also a very curious character. She's one of those who always had a hard life, but could face all chalanges with her strength of will and perseverance.
She likes doing her work to the sound of maudlin softy and squishy songs that tell about her own feelings. At that times she gets really fast and efficacious.
Although she's making things ruff on Galhetas all the time, who knows if love will be the winner in the end.
There are many other storys and characters, that varie along with the episodes.
