weinstein's avatar View weinstein's profile Options

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.

Hello James, good to scribble with you again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm doctorjazz:

Hi Ruth and David, and other folks out there!
Avatar 3:14pm weinstein:

Doctor Jazz I have a good one for you special today. Gospel of Mars. coming next.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm doctorjazz:

This Tom Chiu and Michael Schumacher is quite fine, drifts into free jazz territory at times.
Avatar 3:23pm fred:

Good afternoon David, Ruth, james and doctorjazz.
Is that the Gospel of Mars that features Aaron Moore?
Avatar 3:25pm weinstein:

Welcome! It is A Moore indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm doctorjazz:

We're definitely in my territory here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm doctorjazz:

Really fine date!
Avatar 3:39pm fred:

@doctorjazz: My territory too. Well, musically; geographically this seems like a long shot. Though I suggested to a friend he should try to play with Aaron Moore and Quentin Rollet (he has recorded with both) and he liked the idea...
Avatar 3:41pm weinstein:

In case I raced past it, Gospel of Mars at Pianos NYC March 30
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm doctorjazz:

Be nice to make it. Not to bad for me territorially (though Manhattan is such a pain).
  3:58pm Dean:

Brown's guitar has the quality of microtonal Carnatic music. Like the mandolin of U. Srinivas.
Avatar 3:59pm weinstein:

As we say in Queens, when the L train shuts down, that'll be the end of Manhattan!
Avatar 4:01pm weinstein:

Che Chen has that microtonal guitar thing too, based on non-Western scales, and maybe that's why he likes this band so much??!!!
Avatar 4:04pm fred:

Speaking of unconventional tuning, a guy at work once told me a composer he worked with compared a bunch of soft drink brands, to know which cans made the best sound when crushed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm doctorjazz:

Great Guitar!
Closest thing I've heard was Nels Cline recently, also gets some amazing sounds out of that thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm 75 Dollar William:

Greetings, Ridgematarians!
Avatar 4:10pm weinstein:

Whose hiding under that curly wig?
Avatar 4:11pm weinstein:

Fred, as an unreformed sound effects junkie I can sympathize with the soda jerk. Some things have that little extra magic but you have to do the time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Post no Williams:

This radio show is like having a front-row seat to the coolest shows in town. That's pretty wonderful.
Avatar 4:23pm weinstein:

Is there a keyboard shortcut that just says "aw shucks" or maybe I should start using emojis to talk to "Williams" ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm William E. Moji:

Own it, Weinstein. And Ruth.
Avatar 4:28pm weinstein:

In case I don't have time to gab about this... David Grubbs is giving a talk for the Musical Ecologies series, with Dan Joseph, tonight in Prospect Park. Grubbs wrote "Records Ruin the Landscape".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Will.I.Am.:

Devouring Grubbs in Prospect Park. Sounds like a plan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm doctorjazz:

Like the time shift, makes for a great Wednesday line up.
Avatar 4:41pm weinstein:

We are delighted with the 3pm thing and love having Mary Wing in front. Like we've discussed, a move from late coffee to early cocktails!
Avatar 4:44pm northguineahills:

Thanks for sets, gotta skidoodle!
Avatar 4:44pm weinstein:

Oh yeah, Grubbs is also performing at this (and his name must sound pretty in some language, "Will")
Avatar 4:44pm weinstein:

Soon again, thanks!
Avatar 4:45pm northguineahills:

Isn't Grubbs still a prof at Brooklyn College?
Avatar 4:46pm weinstein:

He is teaching there yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi David, I had my sound down in anticipation of a call which still hasn't come in. I'll have to catch the show in the archives! But I like this end bit!
Avatar 4:56pm weinstein:

Thanks. These things usually get archived by the end of the day (because the FMU crew is totally on it, shout out to Jeff Moore).
Avatar 4:56pm fred:

Thanks as usual, David. I'll miss next week's show: Les Filles de Illighadad are in town
Avatar 4:56pm weinstein:

Thanks, Fred. Enjoy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Last Will (and testament):

That Jeff Moore is a saint.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm listener james from westwood:

many thanks, y'all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, David, enjoyed the sets today.
Avatar 4:59pm weinstein:

Thanks, all. Very fun today.
