Ad for Blazer Radio’s “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” (Sept. 2016).
Now that Hood College’s exclusive online radio station has resolved their technical problems, my radio program will back on the air for one last show.
“Yours Truly, Chris Hamby: The Finale Show” (to round out my final and second season on Blazer Radio, the Voice of Hood College)
The final edition of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby: The Big Finale” (for the second and final season) will air tomorrow (Fri., May 12) at Noon ET/11 a.m. Central on Blazer Radio, “the voice of Hood College” (via http://www.blazerradio.org and on the TuneIn app).
“Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” was a wonderful and exciting experience during my time at Hood College’s Blazer Radio for two seasons (with groovy tunes, fun facts about classic/cult motion pictures and most important of all, on-air shout-outs to fellow friends of the matinee and pilots of the airwaves)!
If I had the chance to, I would love to do more episodes of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” on Blazer Radio (had it not been for the various technical gaffes that the station had for the past couple of weeks, there might have been more).
As I will be walking on the graduation stage next week with fellow Hood grads, once students participate in the commencement ceremony, they are no longer part of the station (according to the rules for Hood’s Blazer Radio organization).
Sidebar: I completed all of my courses for Hood College in Dec. 2016 and will march on the graduation stage with several friends from Hood in a week.
Be sure to tune into “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby: The Finale” (for the second and final Season on Hood College’s Blazer Radio)
Tune in tomorrow for an afternoon of fun and excitement, along with interesting tunes (including several Svengoolie songs), cameo shout-outs and more! You won’t want to miss out on the final edition of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” tomorrow (Fri., May 12) on Blazer Radio (the voice of Hood College).
Most important of all, thanks to all for listening to the second and final season of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” on Blazer Radio! Peace to all/keep in touch!
And again, congratulations to all fellow Hood students on graduating (including personalities who were part of Blazer Radio, 2016-17 grads)!

Greetings, Everyone (fellow friends of the matinee and pilots of the college radio airwaves)!
As I am taking a brief break from final assignments for my last set of courses at Hood College, this Friday will mark the season finale of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” on Hood College’s exclusive online radio station, Blazer Radio.
The fun starts this Fri., Dec. 9 at Noon Eastern/11 a.m. Central/9 a.m. Pacific on blazerradio.org and on the TuneIn app!
The season finale of Blazer Radio’s “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” will have shout-outs to fellow friends of the matinee/pilots of the airwaves and some interesting tunes (including several that have been played before on previous episodes of this program), a couple of holiday/seasonal tunes and more!
Will this mean the end of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby?”
No, this will not mark the end of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby.” Since I got the chance to do my own radio program on Blazer Radio back in mid-September, I love doing this show every week- sharing good, groovy tunes with all listeners from coast-to-coast and around the globe (along with fun facts on classic/cult film and television programs)!
Though I will be graduating from Hood College at the end of this semester (along with several fellow friends of the matinee/ “pilots of the airwaves” from Blazer Radio)*, I am hoping to continue “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” in one form or another- on Blazer Radio or on another online platform. Stay tuned to this blog for more details!
Thanks to all for listening to this season of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” on Blazer Radio! Hopefully, this show will make a comeback next year- more developments will follow!
And if anyone has a special song request, or if you would like to have an instant on-air shout-out during tomorrow’s show, feel free to let me know!
“Yours Truly, Chris Hamby:” Season Finale (For Now)
The author of “Silver Screen Reflections” will be taking a short hiatus due to a mix of final projects for the final set of classes at Hood College. There will be more in store throughout the month of December- stay tuned!
A familiar classic/cult film (and television) blog writer will be getting his own live weekly radio show starting this Friday.

Be sure to tune into my first installment of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” this Friday. I guarantee that you will have an exciting time listening!

“Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” A Live, weekly show
Friday (starting Sept. 16) from Noon-1 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m.-Noon Central
No, this is not me. This is Groucho Marx, as Professor Quincy Adams Wagstaff in the classic 1932 Marx Brothers comedy, “Horse Feathers” (originally released by Paramount Pictures).
This upcoming Mon., Aug. 24, your mild-mannered blog creator and writer of “Silver Screen Reflections” will return to Hood College for the final semester.
A suggestion for Hood’s “Blockbuster Movie Showcase” series (future film showcases)
It would be a great idea to blend in a mix of vintage cult and definitive classic features, to complement the college’s “Blockbuster Movie Series.” The management of this blog would guarantee that one screening of a vintage film on campus would be entertaining to all fellow students of Hood that enjoy cinema entertainment.
In conclusion, the addition of cult/classic cinema flicks to Hood’s “Blockbuster Movie Showcase” would be a great stress reliever from all of the chaos of schoolwork. It would be a fun and exciting experience!
A message to all fellow friends of the Matinee (who are returning to Hood or any other college)
To my fellow friends of the Matinee (who are returning to Hood or any other college)- Let’s make this semester an exciting one! Be on the lookout for future cult/classic cinema posts during the semester!
Still from Chris Hamby’s short animated feature, “Trump’s Bad Hair Day” (2006).
NOTE: The author of “Silver Screen Reflections” does not endorse any of the candidates for the office of President.
“Mr. Smith Goes To Washington.” “State of the Union.” “All the King’s Men.” “The Candidate.” “The American President.” “Trump’s Bad Hair Day.”
In relation to this evening’s Republican presidential candidate forum, the author of “Silver Screen Reflections” will talk about another film.
This is about an award-winning short animated film that was created by the same person who brings you a new blog post every week, related to classic, cult and contemporary cinema. Let’s take a trip down “memory lane!”
“Trump’s Bad Hair Day” (2006)
Nine years before controversial celebrity businessman Donald Trump decided to throw himself into the political spotlight, he devoted most of his time to his TV show, “The Apprentice.”
With his outrageous comments and being the top joke on David Letterman and Jon Stewart’s late night shows, this inspired a young freelance filmmaker/videographer from Walkersville, Maryland to make a short animated film on Trump’s trademark “toupee” on his head.
Mr. Hamby’s inspirations for “Trump’s Bad Hair Day”
I created “Trump’s Bad Hair Day” while I was a junior in high school. I was inspired by a clip that was shown on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” where Trump’s hair looked like it had a skunk’s streak on it.
I was also inspired by the animations of Terry Gilliam, the only American cast member of “Monty Python,” who was famous for his animations in the group’s sketch TV shows (“Flying Circus”) and films.
Chris Hamby accepts MHz Networks’ “Shortie” short film award for “Most Promising Filmmaker” in 2006.
MHz “Shorties” Award:
In late 2006, I entered my short film into the “Shorties” short student animated film festival, sponsored by independent public television station MHz Networks. I was one of the finalists in the awards ceremony, and was invited to the Media and Public Affairs building at George Washington University for the screening of the finalists’ films.
On an interesting note, the auditorium where the event was held was the same auditorium that was used for CNN’s political discussion show, “Crossfire” from 2002 to the show’s cancellation in 2006.
By surprise, I had won the 2006 “Shortie” award for “most promising filmmaker.” It was an interesting achievement, and my friends enjoyed the hilarious moments of “Trump’s Bad Hair Day.”
Chris Hamby is holding his MHz Networks’ “Shortie” award at the MHz “Shorties” film festival afterparty in 2006.
Did “Trump’s Bad Hair Day” inspire you to become a better filmmaker/post-production editor?
Since the making of “Trump’s Bad Hair Day,” my skills and expertise in the field of filmmaking (and videography) has improved over the years.
Whether you enjoy short comedic animated features, love politics, hate politics, or if you’re a Democrat, Republican, or Independent, “Trump’s Bad Hair Day” will not disappoint!
