MR. FAT-W AUDIO CDs

Hartwest Productions, Inc., a subsidiary of Films Around the World, Inc., was formed by Saul Jaffe in 1965 as the vehicle for him to enter the field of radio production and distribution.  It was phenominally successful; during the period from 1965 to 1971, it produced and/or distributed to AM stations across the United States, a number of the most highly-rated radio series.  In 2013, Films Around the World, Inc. rebranded itself as "Mr. FAT-W" and created an on-demand video (DVD) label called "Mr. FAT-W Video," and an on-demand audio (CD) label called "Mr. FAT-W Audio."  There are literally thousands of 1/4" reel-to-reel magnetic tape broadcast masters in storage; a small percentage have been transferred to digital formats, upgraded, and released commercially through Amazon.com.  Previously, there was little commercial potential for this large library of radio programming; however, the rapid development of Internet radio will in time permit all of these programs to be heard again.  Until then, they are only available through Amazon.com.


There were no catalogs of the radio programming.  While some of the tape boxes had hand-written names of the interview subjects, others only had numbers.  There are in storage boxes containing many hundreds of original executed mimeographed guest releases, giving Hartwest all exploitation rights in all territories in perpetuity; at some point, they will have to be scanned and cross-referenced to the broadcast tapes. However, the only reliable way to catalog them, is to listen to each tape, as it is played and ingested into our Mac computers for digital upgrading.  This has been done for the "Top of the Pops" radio series; the catalog of the approximately 1,200 songs, performed by approximately 180 artists, and approximately 400 interviews, took a musicologist more than two years to complete; it runs approximately 120 pages.  The "TOP" tapes comprise less than 10% of all of the radio tapes; clearly, it will take years to fully catalog all of the programs.


The radio programs which have been released on Mr. FAT-W Audio, are listed below; all are available

on Amazon.com, and this link will take you to our Amazon listings:

JOE PYNE RADIO SHOW

Joe Pyne pioneered the "confrontational" style of radio and television interviewing; he was unique in having both the #1 rated radio series, and the #1 rated television series, in most independent markets.  What is astounding is that his interviews are as interesting today, as they were between 1965 and 1971, when our company took over production and syndication of both series from Metromedia.  This link will take you directly to our Joe Pyne website, which has detailed information about him, as well as audio and video samples:
