After the invention of radio, DJ-P0n3 (aka Vinyl Scratch) holds the first Equestrian talk show with her co-host Octavia. Octavia quickly finds out her superior is very eccentric, leading their broadcast to be constantly derailed, yet somehow remain popular. These episodes were recorded for historical significance and transcribed. These are the Vinyl Scratch Tapes.

[Update 1/25/13]: Fully updated to contain all of season 1 and 2, correcting a vast oversight on the part of the author. Sorry it took so long to update it fully on Fimfiction, guys.

I have always enjoyed this series since it was first written. The camaraderie you put with Vinyl and Octavia is nothing short of pure brilliance and fun. I always look forward to the next "transcript" and I never get bored.

I also have to give recognition to the talented folks who do the radio dramatization as well. They really bring the characters to life and I wish if they are ever given real voices in the series, that they should sound just like them.

Seriously, you do a great series. Don't let anyone else say otherwise.

Oh my Luna. I spent the last hour and a half reading all of these and was sent into laughing and snorting fits more times than I could count. :rainbowlaugh:

I want to either hear these recorded or get a group of friends together and record it ourselves. It would be AWESOME. This is so well written and well, AWESOME, that I don't think it could be done justice.

I do hope there will be more, because these are BRILLIANT.

Hehe I found them a couple of days after posting that. They're freaking AWESOME. :pinkiehappy:
Thank you though. :twilightsmile:

ugh! i LOVED it xD listened to the recordings they were top notch! not to mention its pretty easy to read it in there voices xP cant wait for this to be transcribed woot the story here on fim fic definitly needs more love xP

oh god trixie and blueblood -.- >w> this will definitly turn out interesting i mean come on whats the worst they can do?....... <w< dont answer that xDD

:ajsmug: psh well the blueblood tapes may have met its end haha xD ya know i really love the personalities youve given to octavias friends :D cant wait till more!

This story deserves more popularity.
...I can't wait for more, this is amazing.

Octavia: [Angry muttering.] That’s because I’m afraid if I take a day off, you’ll set the studio on fire.

DJ-P0n3: Octy, when has that ever happened, except for that one time?
That one got me laughing or the part with the camera. It's so funny. I'm going to read all of these chapters now^^

First season over^^
This theaterpiece style of writing is cool. But what i'm curious about is what happened between the tapes.

It's so cute. Thanks a lot for writing these.

:heart: that's everything i need to say... I think. Keep up the good work.

This needs more views on FIMFiction. There's only been 14 comments.

This is one of the most enjoyable romantic fics I have ever read...

Well done! :rainbowkiss:

I listened to this while reading:

This is pretty good for first chapter.

When do you think they'll have the Radio Plays recorded and put on YouTube? Or am I being too hopeful...?

oh god this is awesome :rainbowlaugh:.
and how come i don't see any comments on this amazing piece of comedic writing?

It was okay.. I got pissed at Vinyl Scratch though :twilightsheepish well I am going to go read next chapter

Hi there. I did write more which was posted on EqD, I just neglected to upload it on Fimfiction... whiiiiich was a pretty dumb move on my part, so I've updated it here as well. Just wanted to apologize for that. I don't have an excuse except for massive procrastination and forgetfulness. This has been rectified. Enjoy!

thanks for uploading these, they are so great! Hoping you will continue to write more of octavia and vinyl's shows in the future, their banter is Godlike.

I did leave the story open for more additions but right now I don't have any current plans for new episodes. If I do write more, it probably won't be for a while.

I am, however, currently working on a new project called Newsponies: http://newsponies.tumblr.com/ I do personally consider it to take place in the same "universe" as the Vinyl Scratch Tapes so it is possible the characterization I wrote for these characters may appear later in the series. We'll see. At the very least, it can be considered a spiritual successor to the Vinyl Scratch Tapes, since it's another story that continues the "pony media" theme that I really enjoy.

2028255 hehe well, will be checking up on news ponies in the future :) And again, thanks for writing the vinyl scratch tapes. Will also be checking out TheMidnightMagicPro's youtube site for whenever they decide on doing more of your work.

I just want to say, that I am a huge fan of your work. I love everything about the Vinyl Scratch Tapes, and have read the 1st season like 10 times lol. Season 2 was... the best fanfic I have ever read. Almost cried like 4 times on the last 3 parts. Anyways, I should get to the point and stop bragging lol. I hope you continue the fanfic for at least a few more seasons. They have filled me, and I'm sure many others, with joy that NOTHING could replace. Thank you all for this experience!!:twilightsmile:

I can't wait for the Audio version of season 2! Or season 3 in general. Hopefully Lyra will be Octavia's ex-gf for some classic romance drama. I would love to see what the author and the audio team could do with that.

Those Diamond Dogs prank calling were just so funny! And Vinyl is just so epic!

I find Blueblood to be delightfully moronic with his misapprehension of sarcasm. :pinkiehappy:

"I must warn you all, when I play, I play for souls."

All hail Princess Trollestia! :trollestia:

... wut.:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh: lol seriously i think i have to check it again to understand wtf did i just read xD

A-MAZE-ING:pinkiehappy: As Vinyl would pronounce it, with it being 3 syllables after all.

Wait wait wait, srry; forgot to mention; MOARZ!!!:pinkiehappy:

I want to know who else has appeared on Late Night With Lyra and Bon-Bon.

Am I the only one who caught the Marx Brothers reference?

Ahh this was a good story

Love how you turned Blueblood form an antagonist to essentially a lonely protagonist, arguably it was sudden but it worked
hope to see more
