For sixteen years, Far Out! with Archer & Valerie was a weekly program of "underground" rock radio featuring cuts from the freeform radio era, with garage bands, masters of psychedelia, folk-rockers, bluesmakers, flower-power singer-songwriters, roots rockers, funky rockers and folk-metal pioneers ... even the "grooviest" commercial crossovers.

Sandwiched in between were audio clips from the era and the occasional comedy cut.

Although produced from 1993 to 2009, nothing on Far Out! "took place" after 1977. The show was produced with vintage audio processing and ALL the music coming from the original vinyl.
