Ted’s new podcast, Vince’s musical adventure, and our new family member

It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? I need to get better about updates. What’s new at 6630 Productions? In no particular order…

Ted’s Podcast: Life in The Ted Lane

Ted’s new podcast, Life In The Ted Lane, is a hit! The show has over 111 downloads in the first month. Plus, listeners wrote some great reviews on Podchaser.

Five Stars! Excellent job by ted with his sister Lindsay. I live in the area of the Mercer Museum and Fonthill castle, and have never been to either. After listening to ted's podcast, I am very interested in checking out these places of history right in my neighborhood. I look forward to hearing many more of Ted's adventures.

As of today, Life In The Ted Lane has been downloaded in ten countries, including Luxembourg and Iceland!

You can listen to Ted’s show at the Buzzsprout website, on Ted Harris’ Art Page, or wherever you find your podcasts.

Vince’s Musical Adventure: Marooned Tunes

Vince has started recording new episodes for Season 2 of Marooned Tunes. The new season has some science fiction adventures that could really anger a large religious institution, so maybe our castaways will get rescued after all (so they can bet tossed in Brain Prison?). Now’s a good time to catch up on any episodes you may have missed.

Listen to Marooned Tunes on Libsyn, or the podcast dispenser of your choice. Thanks to the new analytics features at Apple Podcasts Connect, we know that one person listened to Episode 5 thirty-four times. I’m not going to shame anyone with the screenshots. And no, Apple doesn’t have location data for that listener. We’re all going to have to live with the mystery. Unless, of course, they contact us at info@6630Productions and let us know.

I hope it’s a graduate student writing a thesis on The Pretty Things so someday I can read it.

Thirty-four times. If you’re going to do that, why not thirty-five?

Meet The Newest Partner of 6630 Productions

Symone is a four-legged antidepressant.

Yes, she’s a Siberian Husky, she’s four years old, and the vet wants her to put on ten pounds. She has a lifetime of experience running, snuggling, changing directions, tugging on toys, shedding, sniffing out treasures, and snoozing. Favorite hobbies include being a picky eater and chasing the cats. We were very fortunate that Vince walked into the Montgomery County SPCA on the right day at the right time. ADOPT, DON’T SHOP. Thousands of dogs and cats need you.

Stay tuned, folks.

What’s new at 6630? Part X of N

It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? 6630 Productions has new podcasts, new visual art, and we’re trying to get new attitudes. Here are some of our latest projects.

Marooned Tunes

Vince Friel was checking out the garage sale section of REI. While trying on a pair of those nifty hiking slacks with zippers on the legs in the fitting room, he accidentally fell through a dimensional gateway. He woke up on a deserted island, somewhere in the South Pacific (maybe). Fortunately, not only does the island have a full podcast recording studio, an extensive library of vinyl record albums, and an unpredictable wi-fi connection, it also has his friends, Jennifer Carbin, Ruth Dubb, and Ian Williams. As we all know, when you’re stuck on a deserted tropical island with recording equipment and a lot of time on your hands, there’s only one thing to do. You make a podcast.

The first two episodes are available now, you can find them on Spotify and other podcast listening apps, or you can listen here:


It’s the 2000’s, and Brian Wilson is having a bit of a renaissance. With so much attention to Pet Sounds and the lives shows surrounding them, he decided to revisit the nadir of his career.  In 1966 “Smile” was to be to The Beach Boys what “Sgt. Pepper “was to the Beatles, an artistic statement and triumph, but it never happened. Due to drug use, mental collapse, and pushback from the record company and certain band members, Brian went into a tailspin that he could never pull out of.  In 2004 Brian Wilson, with the help of Van Dyke Parks and members of The Wondermints Wilson returned to Smile and completed it. Was it worth the wait? Listen and hear what we think.   The Writer: Lindsay Harris-Friel The Classical Musician: Ruth Dubb The Rock Guitarist: Vincent Friel The Pun Addict: Ian Williams And special guest star Symone the Wonderpup. Concept created by Vincent Friel and Brendan Carr.  Sound design, title music, and engineering by Vincent Friel.

I really hope he gets home soon.

Ted’s Art: Horror Business, Seasons of Gratitude, and more

Ted’s been a very busy bee this fall. His painting, “Jekyll and Hyde,” was part of the Horror Business show at Mt. Airy Art Garage.

He donated some paintings to the silent auction for Merakey’s 18th annual “Leading The Way” awards gala. The theme was Seasons of Gratitude.

Right now, he’s working on some paintings for a private commission. You can still buy his art on t-shirts, mugs, and more at our Teepublic store.

What’s Lindsay been up to?

I just seem okay. I’ve got as much pandemic trauma as the rest of us. I’ve been coping with a lot of audio books, learning Norwegian on Duolingo, and learning to knit socks. I’m slowly and carefully working on the second season of ADWIT, The Audio Drama Writers’ Toolkit. Really. I promise I am.

In fact, I might have a little bit of a book problem. I went completely nuts and joined Literati over the summer. I’m in Austin Kleon’s “Read Like An Artist” book club, and honestly can’t keep up with the pace. Not only do I like between two libraries, I also live within walking distance of Ivy Ridge Books, a lovingly curated used and vintage book store with a generous take-a-book-leave-a-book selection on its front porch. Plus, there are more little free libraries around here than I can shake a stick at. I might have to start posting book reviews so I can make my habit have use for others, instead of just piles around my house.

I knit a lot of hats and scarves, but I wanted to develop the skills to knit something that’s useful for more of the year and doesn’t take up much room. Plus, if you make a pair of socks for someone, and they appreciate the thought, even if it’s not perfect, they can still wear them without embarrassing themselves in public. Crazy Sock Lady is the only person who has been able to explain sock knitting to me in a way that made sense.

I started with DK weight sock yarn and size 4 needles. This is bigger than recommended, but easier for me to see the stitches. Result: one giant prototype sock that could probably fit a T-Rex. That’s okay, though. Mission somewhat accomplished. Then I tried again, with a couple of balls of Knit Picks’ Felici and a nickel plated fixed circular needle. Voilá:

My first pair of hand-knit socks, in Knit Picks’ Felicia. The color way is called Vampire Vibes.

Socks! They’re big and flawed and beautiful and I love them, and I learned a lot and now I can make more.

So, now I have a sock problem and a book problem. My grandmother could read and knit at the same time, holding a paperback open on her lap while knitting. I have to figure out how to do that.

Or, maybe I should get back to writing another audio drama podcast?

if you’ve made it all the way to the end, thank you. Listen to Marooned Tunes, and let us know what you think.
