Chris visits Little Rock’s ALICE 107.7FM!

alice1077logoREALLY looking forwards to chatting with Heather & DC of ALICE 107.7FM about KARL DAHL AND THE GOLDEN CUBE Thursday morning (June 2nd) at 9:30am! And don’t worry… If you’re NOT in Little Rock, you can still tune in from the web tomorrow LIVE via THIS LINK!


I was lucky enough to spend some quality time with the amazing women behind THE ENTERTAINMENT CORNER  this past week, and the result is a pretty epic recorded interview, now available on their site!  Through the skillfull reporting team of Mireille Miskulin and Kristine Radford, we successfuly condensed a lifetime of design, experimentation, and filmmaking into one interview, and somehow STILL managed to connect the dots between my dance, animation, and digital interests, and how they led up to the upcoming Little Rock Premiere of KARL DAHL and the GOLDEN CUBE!  Big Thanks to Mireille and Kristine for inviting me, and I hope we get to sit down again really soon!

Rick, Chris, and Dead End Amelia on LA Talk Radio!

Dean DiChoso, Rick Mizuno, Chris Olsen, Krista Lee, Los Salcedo

I had a blast on LA Talk Radio’s “Indies In Motion” Program this week!  Rick Mizuno (the show’s creator and host) is an all around remarkable guy, and it was great to be part of such a fantastic show. I shared the air with Krista Lee & Dean Dichoso of the LA rock band Dead End Amelia, and the two performed an acoustic set in studio that was completely enthralling.  I always loved “unplugged” sets, so sitting two feet away from the incredible talents of Krista Lee and Dean was a real thrill.  All in all, our one hour show flew by like the wind, but it was a ton of fun, so just in case you missed it, you can listen to the entire program right here!

Tune In This Monday for Chris on LA Talk Radio!

LaTalkRadio-LogoAs you may have gathered from this weeks posts (or lack thereof…), I’m neck deep in production on my latest project, which I promise to start talking about REALLY SOON.  And while this has been a truly magnificiently creative week,  its also kind of knocked me back on my butt.  For example, with all the crazy commotion, I nearly forgot to let everybody know that I’m going to be on the air this coming Monday October 4th @ 1PM PST, on the  LA Talk Radio show “Indies in Motion”!!!  The host is Rick Mizuno, and it appears that we’ll be discussing arts, film, dance, and how my Emmy-nominated documentary film series The Artsiders® came into being.  I’m really excited by the opportunity, and hope you have the chance to tune in and listen.

I’ll post more info as it comes, but you can find out more about Rick and the “Indies In Motion” Radio Show HERE:
