Welcome to the Beaucephus Broadcast!
One of Beau Becraft’s earliest memories is sitting on a twinsized bed with a boombox and a cassette of ZZ Top’s “Eliminator” album. In front of a live studio audience comprised of Popples, GI Joes, and assorted other action figures and toys, Beau would play host on the imaginary airwaves, introducing the songs in between tracks. Some 20 years later after a departure from a fulltime radio gig, Beau launched The Beaucephus Broadcast as a way to stay connected with the following he developed during his tenure on the airwaves in the midwest. “I started the podcast primarily to see what I was capable of in that realm. I also wanted to see what it was like to do ‘radio’ without any restraints,” Beau recalls. “I just started reaching out to people I’ve always found interesting.
Each interview in the bag challenged me to strive for someone bigger for the next episode. At the end of the day, The Beaucephus Broadcast is cathartic for me. But, it’s also a lot of fun. And, I’ve met a lot of great people along the way, despite having been at it for less than a year.”The Beaucephus Broadcast features commentary on pop culture happenings and interviews that include musicians, authors, viral celebrities, and even Beau’s own friends. New episodes are available every Monday.
