Largely unappreciated musician and composer Robert Stephen Moore born in Nashville in 1950, matured in New Jersey and now returned to his home town again in 2010, penniless and homeless – will you help him at Christmas? Why not join us and help Steve by sending some money via PayPal to email@example.com, that’s firstname.lastname@example.org… He really needs the help. original broadcast 2.20pm on Boxing day – Listen to exclusive recordings of the good man, presented by James Tregaskis.
This week, we eavesdrop on James and his guest, People Like Us (Vicki Bennett).
Be sure to don your tin foil hat and join James as he is fends off an amusingly refractory Vicki. As a struggling artist, is it not better to be an “insider” or, should one strive to qualify as an “outsider” – simply to retain some integrity? Is the term “outsider musician/artist” a useful one or not? We will have to leave these questions hanging in mid air for the time being…
James does hope that you enjoyed this series and would love to hear from you.

James Tregaskis presents the second in the series of Outsider In, a series whose principal theme is the world of the outsider artist/musician. This week he talks to Gregory Jacobsen Chicago based performance artist, DJ and painter.
“a godawful little wretch. smelly too! How stunning I looked invariably castrated stupid & numb! Some people say I am like a fashionable hairpiece on the edge of a toilet, an immobilized moustache, jelly doughnut!”
Gregory Jacbsen a.k.a Fatty Jubbo has written describing himself – not flattering but he is powerfully creative, prolific painter and performance artist, musician and DJ living in Chicago Illinois. We will hear Gregory in conversation by phone and some of his musical choices as well as some of his own compositions, performing in his bands, “Lovely Little Girls” and “Ritualistic School of Errors” inspired by his own, well… grotesque paintings.
Heironymous Bosch is often repeated parrot like in reviews of his work: I think of artists Richard Dadd and George Grosz, Dali perhaps: insectoid pupae and molluscs with genitals protruding, deformed little girls smeared with brown marks, cakes and copulating miscellaneous body parts, imbeciles looking devotionally upwards – The subconscious mind of midwest America?
