Providing a look back to the music of 1950’s and 60’s, Victor Godefroy is the host of the Specialty Show HUAC. A junior theatre major at Texas State University-San Marcos, Victor provides not only a flashback of commendable tunes, but also, with the help of his passion for acting, entertains listeners with an ace on-air performance keeping the late Saturday nights fresh and energized.

Mark Alvarez: Out of pure curiosity, how did you come up with the name HUAC for your specialty show?

Victor Godefroy: HUAC is the acronym for the House Committee of Un-American Activities. Don’t know much about it apart from what I learned in history class. One of the men commonly mistaken for being associated with the committee is Joseph McCarthy (hence the name Jo McHarty), who started the whole communist witch hunt back in the 50s.

What drew you to bring the music of the 50’s and 60’s to KTSW air-waves?

VG: It all started in the sweltering summer of ’13. I discovered a digital recording of a radio transmission from some LA station, with then lead singer of The Cramps, Lux Interior, DJing, called the Purple Knif Show. The first time I listened to it I was taken to another dimension. Seriously, this thing is an artifact. Anyways, as soon as I heard that I knew I wanted to have something similar with KTSW.

You incorporate acting as a signature part of your show Saturday night. How do you get into character before going on-air? Does it come naturally as an actor?

VG: I guess it comes naturally. I’m not gonna say I use some complex methods or something beforehand in order to get into character–I just have fun with it. Just some simple warm-ups to get into character and it’s showtime. I’m sure if you’ve tuned in you’ve heard me stumble more than a few times; this is a learning and developing process for me too, forcing me to focus purely on my voice.

Outside of KTSW and the Theatre department at Texas State, do you have any other passions besides music and acting?

VG: I’ve always had an interest in photography, whether it be through movies or stills. On occasion I make fan music videos using movies and other video clips, but I guess that’s more a hobby than a passion.

What are your favorite hangouts around the San Marcos area?

VG: It’s a toss-up between Triple Crown and Showdown.

You use acting as an essential part of HUAC. Are you planning on using on-air personalities somehow in your future projects?

VG: Nah, I think Mad Jo belongs to HUAC.

Victor enjoys much more aside from acting and listening to music. Godefroy claims casual gaming, reading, and watching movies are among his favorite past-times, along with long, romantic walks to the rubber room.
