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.

It's a good sounding show today (as usual).
@David D I have a crappy 8-track player which I'm not sure works anymore. also, a lot of my carts have issues with them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Charlie:

Description of the (quite amazing) premium CD:
Ridgewood Radio presents
Distressed, Disturbed, Disrupted & Displayed
A collection of unreleased, unorthodox audio hijinx from adventurous venues, clubs, and galleries across Brooklyn and Queens recorded and collected by the Ridgewood Radio crew in search of unconventional ensembles, instrument builders, circuit benders, software manipulators, and virtuoso noisemakers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Scraps:

When I was young and Catholic (not catholic; that still applies), I was Tom, and my grade had four Toms out of seven boys. That was early practice why I wanted to change my name...

When I was an adult, it was scary how many Davids there were. Velma said if you were a girl (and hetero), it depended on which David you got, evil or good. Coming out of childhood, you couldn't have a neutral opinion about Davids.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Ike:

This is a heck of a lot more interesting than anything I hear on the Haitian FM pirates in southern Brooklyn (one of which interferes badly with WFMU). Mostly they just broadcast guys shouting about politics over Skype in Creole, heavily fractured by digital artifacting and echo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Charlie:

Henry -- perhaps your player is an opportunity to make some 8-Track Magic, as Gen Ken Montgomery did:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm kimgland:

my father was named david, and yes, hubble was cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Webhamster Henry:

@Charlie: Some of my tapes work better as percussion instruments at this point.
Avatar 2:31pm weinstein:

@Ike: The Radio Shak archive at Clocktower is full of good stuff like this. That was why this Val Jeanty aka Val-Inc. session happened.
Avatar 2:31pm David D:

Hello Ike and Kim!
  2:32pm ruth:

Hi Ike and kim.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Charlie:

Hi Ike and kim!
Yeah, this Val Jeanty is beautiful, as was the Hubble (bubble).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm kimgland:

hey ruth and all...
Avatar 2:33pm weinstein:

Does Kim complete the connection? Was everyone here begat by, seduced by, or named David?
Avatar 2:34pm David D:

Shouting about politics in Creole sounds kind of, um, interesting too. Not sure about that interference though, but there is probably not much anyone can do about it.
  2:36pm ruth:

My first love was a David! He grew up in Tanzania and had a British accent.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Charlie:

No Davids in my clan. Just Louis, Stan, Bob, Arthur, Giusto, and Salvatore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Ike:

@David D., it's usually over-driven and tough on the ear. Also the pirate could do something about it by not illicitly broadcasting at 90.9 right next to WFMU (at 91.1) and splattering all over WFMU's frequency. Same for the church preachy station at 91.3. Oh well, c'est la Flatbush.
Avatar 2:40pm David D:

@Ike: That does sound irritating. I don't suppose they could be convinced to change to another frequency.
  2:40pm ruth:

Slide your dollars this way to this slide guitar so smoothe it won't burn a bit .

Is that a Rocky the Squirrel (speaking of Rockys) and Edward Everett Horton reference? (the voice I wished for)
Avatar 2:45pm David D:

I like this sound!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Doug Schulkind:

No Rocky here, but plenty of squirrels. Greetings from Squirrel Hill, David and Ruth and all Ridgewatarians!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm ɨkɛ:

And they have 90.9 counterparts in Elizabeth/Union, NJ, as well as the Bronx, Queens (a Spanish-language pirate), and Paterson NJ (reggae). I think most people just have no idea these sources of interference aren't supposed to be there. I wish that, at the very least, some of them were more interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Charlie:

Wasn't Red Decade part of the Cleveland scene? Love their music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Charlie:

Hi Doug!
  2:49pm ruth:

Rocky doesn't refer to any damn squirrel "Birds rule mammals drool" and that's a direct quote on the record

In addition to all the incredible live performances that Ridgewood Radio makes accessible, the truly incredible benefit is that all these vital, essential performances ARE BEING ARCHIVED. Twenty, thirty, fifty years from now, the documentation and preservation of the music scene in Ridgewood environs will be seen as an historic achievement. This is something worth celebrating and supporting.
