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.

Off and running into the deep....

Holding my breath...

Well, its deep listening not deep breathing so you can let it out.

My neighbor went to school with Elliott at Buffalo. I'll have to refer her to this playlist.
Avatar 2:43pm weinstein:

Buffalo was critical to Mr. Sharp's development. Must have been amazing during that time.
  2:45pm Dean:

She is now an architect. She remembers him as being a very sweet, funny guy, obviously devoted to music, many of his performances of which she got to tag along to hear.
Avatar 2:46pm weinstein:

And he was very hairy!
Avatar 2:48pm weinstein:

(In case you don't know, he has had a famously shaved head for decades)
  2:50pm Dean:

Hmm, not once did she utter the word, "hirsute." I am aware of his prominent pate. His new-ish record, by the way, on Clean Feed, is pretty darn good. Features Barry Altschul.
  2:51pm Dean:

This live set is also pretty darn good!
Avatar 2:54pm weinstein:

His Buffalo coif was sort of John Lennon Plastic Ono Band period. I know, shocking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Jeff Golick:

The image on today's playlist, and the Charles K. Noyes name, brought this album cover to mind: img.discogs.com... -- though I sort of forgot it was bats.

Heh, speaking of neighbors, Greg Goodman lives about 1/2 mile from me.
  3:07pm Dean:

Heard him play with Evan Parker a few years ago in his living room.

Hi, late arrival today, dig this Sharp/Noyes (could be a band name...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm listener james from westwood:

been in from the start but been busy as a bozo--great stuff today youse two!
Avatar 3:13pm weinstein:

I am trying to process the bat thing from Jeff. Kind of organic gross but intriguing? Anyway, good memory!
Avatar 3:14pm weinstein:

Thanks all. Always good to have you around.
Avatar 3:15pm weinstein:

Elliot often sign his name E#.
  3:16pm Dean:

"Elliott often signs his name E#."

The neighbor did mention that little datum!
Avatar 3:17pm weinstein:

He would kill me if I missed the second T. And I did.
  3:19pm Dean:

T.S. would have killed for the second L.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm listener james from westwood:

That # signature is bloody clever.
  3:20pm Dean:

This Drasin brings to mind (ear?) the weird Nik Pascal records of the '70s. Lots of blurps and blorps, and a hot pink sticker across the cover reading, DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS IF YOU ARE STONED.
Avatar 3:23pm weinstein:

Well, we are re-seeing and re-hearing lots of sounds re-discovered by a new generation these days (witness the ageless Pauline O palette delights on this show!) and nothing wrong with that. Until nothing is happening.
  3:38pm Dean:

Absolutely. I wonder why those Pascal records don't get more airplay. They're not all that "serious," but they sure can be compelling, even if YOU ARE NOT STONED.
Avatar 3:43pm geezerette:

That was a woman who listened to stars.
Glad she reported back.
Avatar 3:45pm weinstein:

Well said. Captures her wisdom and humor in a dozen words. Thanks.
Avatar 3:46pm geezerette:

no, thank YOU. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Jeff Golick:

Hoping to make it to Roulette in a couple of weeks.
Avatar 3:53pm weinstein:

I'm there all the time these days. Find me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Jeff Golick:

Ok! Looking at the Ingrid Laubrock show.

BTW, if you haven't yet seen it, this article about Oliveros and her relationship with her mother is so so good: www.houstonpress.com...
Avatar 3:55pm weinstein:

Hmm. The mother. Wow. Will do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm listener james from westwood:

many thanks!

Nice surprise, this show! Will follow! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Webhamster Henry:
