Video Killed The Radio Star


Video Killed the Radio Star-

This was made for the Living Multimedia - Contest, hosted by THE3-ContestEvents.

The theme is “Living Multimedia, Bring[ing] Multimedia to life in such a way that we feel they have the ability to act like human beings or animals.  Make us laugh! Funny and crazy artwork wanted.” End Date:  July 15th, 2016  

This seemed like such a fun idea; but, there was a complete blank, until this idea finally came through the static, after hearing the song on the radio.

Thanks to the Stock Artists and to THE3-ContestEvents, for hosting this.

Update: WINNERS - LIVING MULTIMEDIA CONTEST, hosted by THE3-ContestEvents.

It was gratifying to be awarded an Honourable Mention, in such creative company.


An Inspector Calls-

Detective Sergeant Bell was proud to work for the Radio City Police Department; but, he hated going on domestic calls. There was no way to know what was on the other side of that door, when they got there; and, the Dispatcher could never tell them much.

The detectives didn’t know, at first, that they were going to the condo that radio host Zee and filmmaker, turned photographer, Whrr, shared together.

When they got there, the door was ajar, Whrr, was unconscious by the sofa. Their cat was behind her. And, Zee-

“Oh,” Sergeant Bell grumbled. “Looks like video killed the radio star,” the Detective muttered.

“Looks like,” the Inspector agreed. “Call it in, please, Sergeant Bell.”

Neither of them moved for a moment, trying to take in everything, before anything else happened, disturbing the scene: like the knife on the Kitchen Island, furniture in disarray, the cat behind the sofa, and the wounds.

“You thinking of taking early retirement, Sergeant?” The Inspector asked.

“Every time,” the Sergeant admitted.

“Me, too. But, call it in first, please," Detective Inspector Morse said. "Oh, and make sure you tell them to bring a full CSI team, with cameras and lights,” the Inspector said. “We can both retire, after the job’s done.”

“Aye, yes, of course,” Sergeant Bell sighed.

And, they went to work.

Listening to: Buggles - Video killed the radio star 

Kate Bush - Love and Anger - Official Music Video

No doubt, the detectives notice that it doesn't look like Whrr has any oil stains on her hands, despite the oily fingermarks on some of the furniture.

Hopefully, it will just take some electrical tape and a little transfusion of oil to patch things up good as new.  That's the beauty of living in Radio City.

My Mum and that side of the family have always been big fans of detective fiction and forensic sciences.


Details of Whrr’s photographs and magazine covers can be seen at Holiday SnapsMagazine Covers, and Family Album, and the Afterword in For Sale or Let.

There’s quite a vibrant music scene in Radio City and the GRCA [Greater Radio City Area], which encompasses all the surrounding burrows, connected to the core via the ERA & ETA [Electric Railway and Electric Trolley Authority].
