- RIAA's song "Wake Me Up When September 11 Ends" won WFMU's "Remix Rudy" contest out of 50 or so entries. The prize: a big box full o' CDs, T-shirts, trading cards, books 'n' things. Yay.
- Our 2006 album "Dirt Bacharach" made WFMU's Top Ten Albums of the Year list, and was ranked #1 on John Sakamoto of the Toronto Star's "Anti-Hit List" who described it as "one of the year's most startling full-length mash-up projects."
- Mr Fab has DJed at BootieLA. Bootie is America's first, and most acclaimed, mashup club.
- Check out this video interview part 1 and part 2 featuring Mr. Fab, and Adrian & The Mysterious D. from Club Bootie from 2005 .
- Here's an interview I gave to the syndicated show Some Assembly Required in 2006 - not terribly informative, but mildly amusing.
- The British podcast Saturday Night With The Who Boys had a fairly ridiculous interview with Mr Fab in '07.
- Here is a more useful interview, courtesy of DJ Useo and Bartcop Entertainment.
- In 2005 Beck - yes, the Beck - posted a link on his Beck.com site to RIAA's tune "Bring The Strippers!"
- RIAA tunes have been spun by DJs at clubs and music events around the world.
- Broad/web/podcast play all over the world has included:
-- WFMU's "Do or D.I.Y." program, who once featured a 45-minute mix of RIAA musics. Host Vicki Bennett (a legend in mashup/sound collage circles for her work as People Like Us) has described our music as "wonderful, spirited and courageous."
-- The IdioAudio show on Toronto station CKLN once featured an hour of RIAA musics.
-- Slander Bob on Austin, TX KAOS played a big ol' 2-hour mix of our stuff Feb. 2010.
-- Mashup of the Day on Los Angeles' Indie103 (an actual commercial station that has since changed formats)
- RIAA was asked to contribute an (unused) mashup to the 2006 Antonio Banderas film "Take The Lead"
- From April 2003 to June 2004, Mr. Fab operated Pranksta Radio, an all mashup/sound-collage music online station, on Live365.
