Ridgewood Radio features concert recordings by adventurous bands and experimental musicians and restored archival tapes from private and institutional collections captured at venues large and small across the five boroughs of New York. It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the Ridgewood section of Queens, NY, where you'll find more yellow bricks than on the road to Oz and the cemetery of your choice is never more than a few blocks from home.

She Was Like A Bearded Rainbow!

Yes, the rainbow DOES have a beard.
Odd, that.
Hello, David, Ruth, the OAR Rangers, and all living in the material world. Joss sticks burning, beaded headband on a little tight. Ridgewood ready, Captain.

David, I'd love to hang, but I have to take my mom to the doctor, which is like trying to put a cat in the bathtub.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 3:09pm david w:

Franco, I know the scene. And also Sem hey! That beard image is deeply odd.

Every beard a set of hairs; every hair, a frolicking follicle

Sounds like Shakespeare. Welcome Ubi!

Tomeka Reid is new to me, quite enjoying!

I love this wonderful music -- Reid and Halvorson were spotted in the audience of a show I saw earlier this year at the brooklyn conservatory, but I didn't recognize them and only found out about it later via twitter :)
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 3:30pm david w:

steveo! Tomeka Reid seems to have the magic touch and lets great players shine.

Mutual acquaintance recently dismissed Tomeka Reid as another instrument abuser. Thanks for evidence to dispute that ... the Weinstein seal of approval!

A wildfire, if you're referring to my avatar, David.

Hi Ridgewoodians! Lots of string scrunching today.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 3:41pm david w:

djazz, I was hoping you were out there for that one. And chresti, yipes. You were that close?
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 3:43pm david w:

Yes, Henry, lots. But later Jaap Blonk voice crunching!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/20/19 3:45pm chresti:

No, about 50 miles away maybe, I forgot which fire this was taken from, fortunately it's raining today, to help dampen things.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 3:47pm david w:

I failed to mention that I cannot figure out who the percussionist is in this Moto track. Anybody?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/20/19 3:51pm Stanley:

Well, it's not me.

David! Listeners!

Thank you, Stanley. That narrows it down.

Could Bergman have a set next to the piano?
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 11/20/19 3:52pm Sem:

Greets, cool cat.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 3:55pm david w:

Borah on vibes and drums. Hmm. Can't remember ever seeing that, but I'm listening to see if they ever play at the same time. Smart theory.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 3:56pm david w:

Nope. Two people.

Hi Sem. I just got a question right on University Challange earlier this evening. My starter for ten: Described as the Coal Age Galagapos, the Joggins fossil cliffs om an arm of the Bay of Funday is in which Canadian state?
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 4:02pm david w:

Oh, goodness. Stanley is a wiz! Kudos! (Ruth says Nova Scotia).
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 4:03pm northguineahills:

Why do I know all of the players but Moto?
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 11/20/19 4:07pm Sem:

Visited there just a month ago. Mind-boggling area and wonderful x 10 exhibits. Nice one, Stanley.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 4:07pm northguineahills:

I got a legit offer from LinkIN the other day to interview for a position w/ a Toyota affiliated firm in Tokyo to design autonomous vehicles. Since , they don't want me for my coding skills, I wrote a post-structuralist reply how today's assumptions of autonomous vehicle navigation neglects the holistic experiential awe of automation (I used more paragraphs of jargon then that). might as well press 'send'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/20/19 4:09pm doctorjazz:

Borah Bergman, another player I know on records, really like, haven't had the opportunity to see him.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 4:10pm david w:

Sad to tell, Borah has left us.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 4:12pm david w:

and... ngh... you are getting in deep but I trust you know of where you go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/20/19 4:15pm doctorjazz:

Going to hard to see him then (at least, until that time comes for me...)
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 4:17pm northguineahills:

@Doctor Jazz: luckily, I got to see him w/ the ICP Orchestra....
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 4:18pm northguineahills:

Good to see Barry going strong, haven't seen him in a while....

Now I want to see an Instantaneous Composers' Pool collaboration w/ the Insane Clown Posse! (sorry....)

David - no big deal on the University Challange question, I only knew because our frien Sem is a Bay of Fundy fella. Kudos go to Ruth for getting it.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/19 4:35pm david w:

Hello, Gary in any language! And I keep forgetting where to find Sem. Thanks for reminding me.

Holy shit, I was at this concert

Gary, really?

Find me near the late Carboniferous Period ~330 million years ago. I'm the one on the beaded headband.
  Wed. 11/20/19 4:40pm Gary via app:

Yes, because of Jaap Blonk—a few other poets were there as well
