Over the past 30 years I have built a service and a business…and I don’t consider it work. Bumper Morgan has acquired many skills in sound design & audio production, these strengths can be applied to your next marketing funnel. Maybe you have a book to promote or need of a narrator for a special project?
Here are just a few of my latest projects.
Bumper Morgan even produces video for social media.
Doppler Sound Waves, Made in America, Ran Me Over. I was recently reading a book while lying in bed when a big honker of a Harley motorcycle drove past, left to right. I didn’t even hear it coming until it was directly in front of our house. I’ve often been told I have ears like Radar O’Reilly from the TV show M*A*S*H, so this took me completely by surprise. Suddenly, I could feel the Harley’s deep, powerful rumble sweep past me like a wave of sound as though it was driving through my body from head to toe. The entire...read more
When it comes to podcasting, much credit should go to Adam Curry who developed the concept years ago. I have my current favorites, No Agenda, John Batchelor Show, Tech Guy, DH Unplugged, Business Design Podcast, and Congressional Dish. Occasionally I’ll visit platforms like Sea Change Radio, Everything Sounds, Atlantic Public Media, and Radiotopia. These sites are giving NPR style indy producers a renewed documentary voice. Here’s a report about podcasting on BBC Global News from 1/9/15. To have your podcast produced, try...read more
As you know, outside the radio spectrum you’ll still have to deal with royalty fees, ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, etc. For streaming, LIVE365 is a strong contender, it’s all inclusive. They compensate the artists through your subscription fees, and they even have a mobile app. In general, downloadable music podcasts are a grey area, many services scan your file waveforms to their data base, violators will be gently warned until the songs are removed. With LIVE 365, the key is to set-up a dedicated PC that contains all of your audio files,...read more
Lately I’ve been searching for a new wireless radio for my long hikes. It’s a radio that hasn’t been built yet. A small, portable AM/FM radio that utilizes Bluetooth 3.0 and doesn’t require a smartphone contract. I found a Bluetooth 3.0 adapter which is good for playing a smartphone into your car radio console with a 1/4 inch plug. I also found a Sony ZSBTY50 boombox and a Sony ICFCS2OBT clock radio both are very unique since they come with a built in FM/AM tuner. I’m looking for a throwback to a small...read more

This page is dedicated to Doc, our Miniature Schnauzer who we brought into our family on Dec. 23, 2004. Doc was a well-mannered puppy, he had a confident demeanor that helped him gain the respect of other dogs three times his size. He mastered many tricks, and he liked playing baseball & football, swimming and hiking. I would tell him the Red Sox should hire him, and that he would make Tom Brady proud. In the last few months of his life, Doc suffered from small seizures he had hidden from us. We became very concerned about his health...read more
Last week, I finally upgraded my old smartphone. Since the upgrade, I discovered that everything still works on my old phone, including all of the video and audio apps like DAR.FM, Spotify, TuneIn and Live365, they still work because of the phones Wi-Fi capabilities, minus the phone service. If you have outside speakers wired to a standard amplifier, just connect your old cell phone into the tuner from the headphone jack using a stereo cable. Verizon offered me $7 for my outdated cell phone, to me it is worth much more as a back-up...read more
