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.

I would be remiss in not posting my annual Top Ten Imaginary Sound Events for 2020 (and before). After all, I can't stop talking about myself.
Avatar 5:10pm david w:

Hi, Henry. Bruce G and his crew have put a lot of extra thought into their newsletter during the pandemic.

Imaginary events, love it.

Wow, I don't think I've ever listened to any Hassell from later than the 80s before. He's still got it...

Hello there, gail.
Avatar 5:25pm david w:

Hey, ranjit. Hassell seems to have an endless fountain.

was about to make a silly comment but opting instead to just listen.

Gotta run, glad I got to hear part of the show, great stuff!!!
Avatar 5:45pm david w:

Thanks, djazz!
  5:45pm Mark R:

Really wonderful show, and I've heard exactly NONE of these albums!
Avatar 5:46pm david w:

WR, I often find myself thinking similarly.
Avatar 5:47pm david w:

Thanks, Mark R. Lots of new things for me too.

Hi David and ruth and Ridgewood Company!

Hey there, David and Ruth....finally catching the show live!
Avatar 5:57pm david w:

Yay, cat!
  5:58pm catverde:

Sometimes I have multiple show players open, so when I start my computer they all come on at once! But that's another show.
Avatar 6:02pm david w:

Kind of an automated Charles Ives thing?
  6:02pm Tom on Swans Island Maine:

It is sad that this tune is no longer Secret Agent Man.
Avatar 6:03pm david w:

I hope there are swans on Swans Island.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Carmichael:

I was lured here by the ambiance of Henry Kaiser. Stayed for the Rodrigues.
Avatar 6:05pm david w:

Cool, Carmichael. The Kaiser videos of this project are also cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Carmichael:

I saw Kaiser a few times, mostly with Richard Thompson. He is an eccentric dude.
Avatar 6:07pm gailvachon:

I'm finding this show very relaxing today.
Avatar 6:11pm david w:

I had a nuts week, maybe I was trying to subliminally self sooth?
  6:12pm ruth:

Yes I agree. We could all use some relax.
  6:26pm catverde:

Yup...relax. Nothing like a delicious quarter tone...

Hi Nemo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm WR:

Loveky, cannot hear any reason for you to think that this performance of Stabat Mater Dolorosa is different from what you would usually program. Just because it is based on a 1736 Pergolesi piece? pshaw say I. thank you say I.
Avatar 6:36pm david w:

Thank you, WR. I do tend to go with what grabs me and there really are no rules.

I like the speed of this Stabat Mater.
Avatar 6:51pm david w:

Hi, Gary. Yeah, saw that. It ain't pretty but I think it's good.

Avatar 6:55pm david w:

And thanks, everybody! Until next...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm WR:

not a fan of the new schedule page, first saw it for the Sheena stream. the extra of indicating which show is active now is not much of a plus to me. true i sometimes forget what daybor time it is, but i think i need to exercise that part of my brain and not just click where indicated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm WR:

thank you for feeding our ears and minds. onward.
