Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1: an hour of psych, from the beautiful to the garage. (Listen to this set: Real | )
International Harvester  Skordetider (Harvest Times) (track 14: ended by -0:30) (Listen: Real | )   Options Sov Gott Rose-Marie  Silence  Full sound, highly ambient and resonant, builds gradually but remains easy. Originally recorded in Sweden in 1968, remastered 2001.  ***  
Overhang Party  Feedback (track 1) (Listen: Real | )   Options Overhang Party Live  Overhang Party  Slow, reverberant, just a little feedback, warm but with a little bit of an edge, big.   
Subarachnoid Space  Square Wheels (track 2: ended -4:45) (Listen: Real | )   Options Endless Renovation  Relapse  Easy/heavy psych rock, with sort of a pile driver feel.  ***  
Overhang Party  Winter Lovers (track 5) (Listen: Real | )   Options Overhang Party Live  Overhang Party  Heavier, more active, easy+.   
Iggy Pop  Heavy Liquid (track 7) (Listen: Real | )   Options Michigan Palace 10/6/73  Bomp  Heavy post-1960s psych garage rock.  ***  
Acid Mothers Temple  In E (track 2) (Listen: Real | )   Options Live In Japan  Acid Mothers Temple  Steadily in a hurry and propulsive, glorious noise, reminiscent of Love Sculpture and Glenn Branca.   
Mummies  Jezebel (track 17) (Listen: Real | )   Options Never Been Caught  Telstar  Prime, urgent garage psych rock.  ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music for 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.   
 
 
Set 2: the old radio show portion of the evening. (Listen to this set: Real | )
Gunsmoke  Carmen   Options from May 31, 1952    The 4th official episode of its 9 year, 492 episode run. Gunsmoke is probably the best written of all the major old time radio series, and "Carmen" is the first truly well written episode. In this episode: Marshall Dillon, zen master sheriff of the West, prevents a hot headed Army major from installing marshal law in Dodge - the natives might not take too kindly to it. And, as for local prostitute Connie: does she help Dillon or doesn't she?   
 
 
Mic break between Sets 2 & 3. Background music for 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.   
 
 
Set 3: guitar, from heavy and dark to the light of Hendrix. (Listen to this set: Real | )
Sunn O)))  A Shaving Of The Horn That Speared You (track 2) (Listen: Real | )   Options White 1  Southern Lord  Starts off like a Japanese Irish folk song undergirded by heavy, dark & slow monotonal chords. And then it stays heavy, dark & slow.   
Tia Carrera  (no title) (Listen: Real | )   Options Live At Room 710  (unknown)  Heavy, long, blues influenced rock.   
Jimi Hendrix  Drivin' South (side 2, track 1) (Listen: Real | )   Options Radio One  Ryko  Recorded live at the BBC in 1967. Sustained, up-tempo blues rock with a light feel.  ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 3 & 4. Background music for 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.   
 
 
Set 4: mostly quiet, mostly guitar. (Listen to this set: Real | )
Enrique Granados  Dedicatoria (track 1: ended at +1:36) (Listen: Real | )   Options Julian Bream Plays Granados & Albeniz  RCA Red Seal  Beautiful, sweet, sentimental.  ***  
Henry Purcell  Prelude - Suite en La Mineur (track 5) (Listen: Real | )   Options Musick's Hand-Maid  Astree Auvidis  Quietly luminous, an airy instrumental.   
Toumani Diabate  Kita Kaira (track 3) (Listen: Real | )   Options New Ancient Strings  Hannibal  He plays the kora - not guitar. It fits in really nicely with what preceeds it. Beautiful, spacious.  ***  
John Fahey  Summertime (track 3) (Listen: Real | )   Options Red Cross  Revenant     
Oscar Aleman  Stardust (CD #1, track 25) (Listen: Real | )   Options Swing Guitar Masterpieces: 1938 - 1957  Acoustic Disc  A ballad - his version of the classic.

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.   
 
Set 5: 2 fast ones to end the show. (Listen to this set: Real | )
Louis Armstrong  Tiger Rag (side A, track 2) (Listen: Real | )   Options Mostly Blues  Olympic  Very high speed, indeed!  ***  
Jo Stafford  Hawaiian War Chant (Listen: Real | )   Options (cassette)  (unknown)  Sustainedly fast version.  ***
