2020 – It’s About Time is an appropriate theme for the Goat Posse because this year’s productions were tinged in the past, but also show the future of our group.
The Intro will never reach a final form, but we are really happy with its current structure. Opening thesis, thematic sections, and then a furious finish with the “intro within an intro”. It concludes with a toss to the hosts who don’t know how it ends, which is why the studio reaction video has become a recent feature.
This year’s intro featured the highest number of producers while including many of the Posse “kids”. These “kids” are growing up fast, and have proven to be self-starters, producing a fair amount of the Posse catalog this year.
- 2020 – Intro – “It’s About Time”
This year’s theme was a bit challenging to present because, if someone asks, ‘What is the definition of time?’, do you have an answer? Finding the audio and a cogent structure to present the theme was a similar experience. Coco and Drrty A made the effort much easier through their superior organization and all the producers actually submitted their sections on-time.Continue reading →

- 2020 – Intro Reaction Video
Because it’s radio, often you don’t get to see how your audience reacts to your work. The in-studio video is a way to see what transpires behind the scenes at KVSC during the last few minutes before Trivia.
Special thanks for UTVS‘s Gavin for shooting this video.

- It’s About Time – Year in Review
Despite what Trivia 2020 might have been selling, you can’t time travel, but you can reminisce. There was much to wax nostalgic about what was heard on the airwaves and Intertubes. After so many hours on the air, many were sounding wibbily wobbily, The McMullen was rude to a pig, something about girthy points, and a big struggle to spell the name, Michael.Continue reading →
- 2020 Awards Ceremony – UTVS Broadcast
Every once in awhile, we include a quick backstory of the Trivia Awards, started at some point in the first or second decade of Trivia. They reached a creative nadir with Al Neff and Patrick Jaye. The Goat Posse at first started helping with the writing of the awards in the 2000s, and eventually took over full-time responsibility after being apprenticing under Al and Patrick.Continue reading →
- 2020 Goat Posse Awards Presentation
For many years the Trivia Awards were written longhand and read aloud. The Goat Posse started trying and scripting the presentation. Either way, they were never curated except in audio and video presentations. A few years ago, Dude started raising the production value of the awards with visuals.Continue reading →
- Jim’s Pontiac – 2020 Edition
Need a time-traveling vehicle on a Trivia player’s budget? Head on down to Jim’s Pontiac. Just Jim launched his car sales division with three Pontiac Aztecs. Lately, he’s branched out into time machines thanks to his vast network of first use obsolete electronics sourced from Mr. Choo Choo’s garage and new daily discoveries every time Jim trips and falls in his office.Continue reading →
- El Cancer Trailer
This one is really special to all of us. If you time-travel through the web pages of Goat Posse Productions you will hear the voice of Phal in many of the productions. His voice skills are vast and you may have noticed he has a talent for voice acting which makes sense as he is a veteran of community theater for over 30 years and even has several film credits.Continue reading →
- Scandal Bus Tour
For those of you who like scandals (that don’t involve Olivia Pope), this bus tour takes you back through some of the memorable ones of the last few decades. Kind of makes you wonder how we keep manufacturing dumb or at least give them a platform. Also, once the fall from grace, please stop trying to buy gold from them, or ginseng, or a VCR repair course.Continue reading →
- Snot Ones – Custodial Engineer
The Posse has always loved to make faux product pitches and Snot Ones is a production from another mother to “Can of Ass”. The later featured several accompanying video shorts, however, Snot Ones is the first to feature an accompanying website, knocked up rapidly by Dude. Be sure to visit the hyperlink in the previous sentence.Continue reading →

- Pre-Read It, Maybe
This cover may be the first bubble gum pop song we have tried to pull off but it rings true. While KVSC Trivia announcers try very hard to read the questions properly, many of them rarely read more than three to five sentences at a time during their normal music shifts outside of Trivia. Maybe ten percent of announcers are actual newsreaders or production voice talent. But even then, during Trivia, they tend to “rip and read”.Continue reading →
- Useless Guy
Every team has a useless guy and we could write a million songs about trivia players that drag teams down. In fact, the Posse wrote “Major Digression” in 2013 about how one team member can wreak havoc.Continue reading →
