Space Capsule + podcast = Capsulecast

March 25, 2012


The Space Capsule is now adding a weekly podcast, called the Capsulecast, it will be a new vehicle of idea exchange and expression from us to you. The topics will be not only a behind-the-mic glimpse at each radio show mix, but a freeform conversation.

The themes for each Space Capsule come from a variety of inspirational concepts and so will the podcast version of the program. However, key topics will include electronic music, instruments, DJ gear, VHS, technology, 20th century nostalgia, computers, Futurism, film, sci-fi, visual art and design, comic books, video games, books, collectibles/collecting, and outer space of course!

We hope to provide a forum for you as a member of the Space Capsule audience, to share your creative projects, ideas, comments on the radio show/podcast, memories, dreams etc. Also, we hope soon to be able to invite guests to be on the podcast.


You can leave us a voice message at 409-420-CAPD (please keep messages between 1-2 minutes) or record us a message on or email us text or an audio file at:


We will be featuring some of your comments on the Capsulecast.

SXSW 2012 Capsule

March 22, 2012

Matthew ventured to the mega-festival that is South By Southwest again this year. After skillfully dodging as many sponsors and advertisements as possible, he was able to catch some awesome label showcases, that included many artists that have been heavily featured on the Space Capsule. This Friday, we recap the fest with artists he caught in concert and stories from the frontline. For those of you that weren’t able to travel out to Austin this year… turn up your stereo or computer speakers all the way … set up a makeshift light show on the patio, invite over some friends and enjoy your own private SXSW showcase from the Space Capsule transmitter… that’s Friday at 11pm CST or Sunday at 8pm CST on 91.3 FM KVLU. You can stream live around the planet from

Now for the photo gallery of artists and bands featured on tomorrow’s Space Capsule:

Magnetosphere Capsule

March 15, 2012


Since the Sun has been in the early stages of its eleven year solar magnetic activity cycle, which causes it to produce solar flares, the controls of the Space Capsule have been acting with an electronic mind of their own… the outcome for tomorrow night’s show is a mystery of sorts… unknown transmissions… the effects of disruptions in the Earth’s magnetosphere by the X-rays and UV radiation from these strong solar flares!

Tune your radio to 91.3 FM or your internet connection to at 11pm CST on Friday or 8pm CST on Sunday for a magnetized Space Capsule of unknown sounds from the avant-garde!

From the future Space Capsule … next Friday … our annual post-SXSW show!
