Set 1: the old radio show portion of the evening. (Listen to this set: Real)
The Haunting Hour  The Old Old Man   Options Originally broadcast sometime from 1944 - 1946 - probably 1945.  (no label)  We don't know what year it was originally aired, the exact date of the show, or even who was in any of the episodes -- no records were ever kept.

This episode: 9 old men make a pact: whoever is last to stay alive gets all their money. Who's the last man standing? Tune in and find out.

"Joe...he's not asleep...he's dead!!!"
 
 
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music played during it: (Listen to this set: Real)
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.

Farflung  Invincible (track 7) (Listen: Real)   Options A Wound In Eternity  Meteor City  Easy, punchy, heavy, with a calmer end. A great mix of psych rock and hardcore.   
Ministry And Co-Conspirators  Black Betty (track 5) (Listen: Real)   Options Cover Up  13th Planet  Mostly instrumental, hardcore. Ledbelly never dreamed his music would be like this!   
Hey Colossus  Overlord Rapture In Vines Part 9 (track 8) (Listen: Real)   Options Happy Birthday  Riot Season  Blend of psych & doom-rock, best on this CD. A sustained, full-court press.

Nadja  Sandskin (track 5) (Listen: Real)   Options bodycage  Profound Lore  I think the title is "Sandskin" - only the first 3 tracks of the 5 on this CD are listed. This piece: becomes darkly golden & slowly rhythmic, peaceful, even beautiful, quiets & slows down last 2 minutes.

Earth  Omens and Portents 1: The Driver (track 1) (Listen: Real)   Options The Bee Made Honey In The Lion's Skull  Southern Lord  Slow & laconic drugged-out psych rock, full-sounding & resonant, and there's that western guitar feel.

Bardo Pond  Adhesive (track 1) (Listen: Real)   Options Bufo alvarius, amen 29:15  Drunken Fish  Rough-edged & lush at same time, druggy. From their first album. Most of it isn't very good at all, but there are 2 really good tracks. This is the short one.
