Options April 22, 2013: Yet Another More or Less Annual Citizen Kafka Memorial Broadcast!

Old time fiddler, band leader, 78 record collector, poet, artist, unterKultur archivist and antiques dealer Richard Shulberg created the Citizen Kafka persona ca. 1976. "Shulky," as he is fondly referred to, passed a few years ago but he still lives afloat the radio waves and myspace rebroadcasts of the much adored/reviled "Citizen Kafka Show." Longtime co-conspirators Marty Cutler, Edward Haber and Kenny Kosek drop by to pay homage to the Citizen on Irene's show.

The Thumbelina song reminded me of the Don Bluth animated movie version of the story that I watched with my kid when she was little, which wasn't wretched, but Lord, it wasn't delightful.

Is Pat Conte still around?

I'm introducing my office to wfmu, please be gentle :)

Yes, Ralphie, Pat Conte is still around. I saw him play at the Brooklyn Folk Festival last year, but my guests say he is indeed around.

Uh, oh! NOT a typical show today. But it certainly will be entertaining!

Great show-remember seeing Wretched Refuse many times when I was a Brooklyn College student, they were around quite a bit. Bob once repaired a guitar for me, later on. Great sounds, brings me back...
