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.

  6:42pm ruth:

Popol Vuh, I believe, hold the world record of Hippiedom. But feel free to correct me ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Webhamster Henry:

I was a little busy, but like Nick Schofield, I have a Prophet 600 that's in need of repair - but is also tricked out with a new brain chip and some firmware that I customized.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Gary:

Popol Vuh is German for "Pucker Up for More Patchouli," no?
Avatar 6:48pm david w:

I think once they got the Herzog soundtrack gigs they kind of woke up.
Avatar 6:49pm david w:

I wonder if Henry's cars are as tricked out as his sound gear?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Webhamster Henry:

The answer is: I only have a bike. Which has a USB-powered headlight on it and a brass bell. And some excellent removable panniers.
Avatar 6:53pm david w:

Asked and answered. Grazie.
