It does seem like you need an assistant to be sure that whatever song is chosen can be played. But- if you don't have the assistant ready- it seems you can always fall back on the old, "well that's a cool song. Now- I just want to ask you- look at all these cards with songs written on them. If you had any choice which would you like to hear if you had your radio playing? As a matter of fact- turn on your radio on your phone and tune into 95.4". They select a song and tune their radio in and it's done. Still pretty strong IMO especially if you can have a list of 100 songs. Though- valid points have been posted about the readiness of a radio being present on one's phone. I don't perform much if any magic in a car so I feel that's not a good selling point.

Dear Dannicus,
Thank you for your post. You have some really valid points.
Here is how I overcome some of these issues that you 've mentioned.
Performing this effect for that long, I could always use someone with an android phones, 90% of the android phones have an FM radio on them.
I don't really care if they ever use the radio in their real life as in my patter I explain that I believe I discovered a glitch in our system and this glitch activates
thru FM radio frequencies. Also appart from the android market, there are many people that use radio in their car and its my favorite effect to perfrom for taxi drivers Smile
There are also many coffee shops around the world that play radio or at least they have a radio device.
Best regards,
Titanas


Fair enough Titanas,

Like I said I was just trying to be the voice of reason. None of my Android Based phones in the last 3 years have had FM.... much to my dismay I might add.... when I tried to tune my phone it to FM at the Drive In Theatre recently I was frustrated to find out that the European phones had the FM chip but not in the USA. I wanted to get the FM frequency and play it over my Bluetooth speaker while sitting behind my car.... it was a bummer.

You seem like an honorable and nice guy and I hope it works out well for you. It stinks because I would love to do this in a coffee shop! That would be amazing to magically play a prediction over the coffee shop's radio on command. Unfortunately I visited four of them close by today and they were either playing their own house music or Internet radio.

I suspect people in the USA will have a challenging time finding the right curcumstance to use this and it's a shame too. SO MUCH POTENTIAL but just a few years too late here in California at least I fear.

All the best brother....

I've spoken with Titanas about this in great detail. From my point of view, the most important element to an effect, of course, is how the spectator perceives and remembers it. This effect to a lay audience is absolutely mind blowing. As for the methods, Titanus has provided a number of ways of achieving the effect, depending on your performing environment. Each methods lends itself to each performing environment and depending on which method you choose can make the effect look super clean or a little bit less clean. However, I really don't think it matters that much which method you choose, as the spectators will only remember the principal idea to the effect in the long run. Also, with the correct scripting and patter, if you do have to choose the least clean looking method, it will seem entirely fair and clean.

Overall, this is a brilliant idea for an effect and Titanus has actually come up with a practical & performable method for all environments. I think we need to stop thinking as magicians and remember how important the effect is.

Really, really good work, Titanus!

I cannot wait for this! I was toying with a similar thing a few months back, but could not get it this clean.

Great video demos, Titanas!

I will certainly be using this. I love the coffee shop presentation with an old fashion style radio.

Don't worry about the people fishing for methods, some people just don't have etiquette these days. Shame really. - But fair play for answering questions you didn't need to answer! I think the performance video is spot on.

Titanas showed me an early demo for this, and I liked what I saw. It actually threw me for a loop; I couldn't quite figure it out. Regardless of method, focus on the EFFECT this would have on a spectator... Pretty powerful stuff...

Looking forward to playing with this.

People,
I just had a long Skype call with Titanas which involved demonstrations and answers (I know the guy so don't ask for a free skype call to all of you just to let you know how the thingy works)
I too had all the questions and worries that most of you have (I say "most" because some of those are pretty outrageous Smile)
I assure you that Radio Active is what is says to be.
Either with cards and a free choice, either with a completely free choice, either with more ideas on the dvd. It is a Miracle!
It can be any frequency, can be any song and the result is true magic.
A lot of you are worried about the "assistant version". Well, the man said it...the assistant can be in ANOTHER PLACE OF THE PLANET!
I think of it like this: I'm alone, I perform the card version and kill it (it still is a free choice!No forcing)...When I wanna kill the special somebody entirely, I just send a text to any friend of mine who is at home and let them know of the assistance. THE ASISTANT DOESN'T EVEN HAS TO KNOW ON WHAT HE IS HELPING!
I think it's a great trick! Bravo to both Drusko and Titanas for this!
I'm getting this ASAP!
Hope everyone who gets it has a great time with it!
The things that are most real to me are the illusions which I create...everything else is quicksand...

Waiting for it to arrive, I can see many ways of using it.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.
