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.

Nice Sakamoto opening
Avatar 3:02pm weinstein:

Got stuck in my head!
Avatar 3:04pm northguineahills:

Now it's stuck in mine. I got this album as a promo while djing at Tonic a lifetime ago. I need to rediscover it, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Doug Schulkind:

You sound so much... louder. Almost is if you were just down the street.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm fred:

The fact that there is a Sakamoto record from the 80s that I don't have is unnerving. Or upsetting, whichever is worse, but still mild
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm listener james from westwood:

How do, David and Ruth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm doctorjazz:

Hey Ridgewoodians!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Doug Schulkind:

I once attended a performance in which Matt Ostrowski played a vacuum cleaner on an original number he called "Sigmund Freud Was Right, I Want to Fuck My Mother." Ah, halcyon days of college.
Avatar 3:12pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever, Wed. 5-7pm ET):

Welcome home, David! I'm using some of you in my show today at 5. Use me.
Avatar 3:13pm weinstein:

Use me, baby. Use me up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm fred:

@Doug: do you plan some field recordings from Maine, or even a live show from there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Doug Schulkind:

I have dreamed of maybe one day broadcasting live from a funky Internet café in Bar Harbor, Maine. But that dream will have to wait at least another year.
Avatar 3:16pm weinstein:

Ostrowski's early project was the duo Ghana Dog. He was naughtier then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Doug Schulkind:

Matt and I both did radio at Oberlin. He wanted to do something called a "freeform" show, and nobody (full disclosure: including me) knew what to do with him. I was the jazz department director and Matt's show got stuck in my department, because... jazz. For years after that when we were both at WFMU, Matt would tease me about that. I took it like the stand-up dweeb I am.
Avatar 3:21pm weinstein:

Quick hey to James and D-Jazz and NGH too. I'm a touch more scrambled than usual today. Maybe its the 100 degrees in here.
Avatar 3:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever, Wed. 5-7pm ET):

I've squeezed myself into many radio departments in my time! P.S. Geez this is amazing.
Avatar 3:26pm weinstein:

If you are curious about this guitarist Liberatore, who I think is a great pairing with MO, his own projects are Ashen Figure and Una Lux.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Cubs Win:

Good afternoon, sports fans.
Avatar 3:31pm weinstein:

Let's play two.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Uncle Michael:

You can't tell the Matthews from the Matteos without a scorecard.
Avatar 3:34pm weinstein:

And Ostrowski's infrared hands free controller looks like he calling signs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Uncle Michael:

Blind Lemon Chitlin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar 3:39pm northguineahills:

I could go for some chitlins!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm fred:

Liking this Charmaine Lee set
Avatar 3:44pm weinstein:

C Lee plays with good people too, Nate Wooley, Joe Morris.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm fred:

I'm feverish but will try to stay until Kenzo's show. I'm on vacation, and I basically always get sick when on vacation. Except for my yearly Sonic Protest break, but I guess that's religious observance
Avatar 3:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever, Wed. 5-7pm ET):

@fred: David and my shows definitely enhance fevers.
Avatar 3:54pm northguineahills:

It's been two-three years since I've heard David First, but this is a new direction from what I've heard before, and I like it!
Avatar 3:55pm northguineahills:

I'll be jumping in a bit to listen on the app as I listen n my motorcar as I drop of my lease at my new house.
Avatar 3:57pm northguineahills:

errr.. duplex in a hou....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm fred:

@NGH: Yeah to another milestone!
Avatar 3:57pm northguineahills:

se.... start work Aug 11th...
Avatar 3:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks fred! Can't wait to get my life back to normal-ish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm fred:

@Kenzo: I'm switching between shivering and sweating. Your show should make that feel appropriate
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Webhamster Henry:

David First has been doing drones for a community acupuncture session!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm fred:

@Webhamster Henry: drone as is sound or as in hovering bot? It kinda changes the picture
Avatar 4:07pm weinstein:

Difference tones!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Webhamster Henry:

Audio drones ... the word has been appropriated by the Military Industrial Peeping Tom Complex.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm fred:

Well, Peeping Tom is also the name of a pretty cool Belgian dance/theater/whatever company
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm fred:

But I live in Eliane Radigue's country, so I know how the word's stealing feels. She's one of the last pioneers left now that Pierre Henry is gone, maybe the last period
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Webhamster Henry:

Laurie Spiegel is still around, she's a youthful 71.
Avatar 4:31pm weinstein:

Ellen Fullman, Arnold Dreyblatt. LaMonte.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Webhamster Henry:

And Niblock, fer drone's sake.
Avatar 4:32pm weinstein:

Phill! Oy. Me bad. OK open the floodgates.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm fred:

Ellen Fullman did a pretty amazing set at Sonic Protest a year ago, walking through a church playing her long string instrument
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Webhamster Henry:

I just missed her in Montreal. I want to set up a long string instrument around here in a mine, her website give good instructions!
Avatar 4:39pm weinstein:

That's the kind of place to see here for sure. Though she rarely plays anywhere without fabulous acoustics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm fred:

Niblock also played there, as did Tony Conrad
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm fred:

Acoustics can be challenging in that church, but even though it's quite recent by French standards for these, it's like 500 years old
Avatar 4:48pm weinstein:

One has to play to the room, can't just dump your standard set into any joint (or architectural treasure) but T Conrad, Niblock, Fullman, would all tune to the room! When that happens, magic can follow!
Avatar 4:50pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever, Wed. 5-7pm ET):

Coming up in 10 minutes on the GTDR stream, live sound collage: Dreams, romance, impossibility, love.
Avatar 4:50pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever, Wed. 5-7pm ET):

@weinstein: Your royalty check is in the mail
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm fred:

I think Niblock was the best, though part of the church was cordoned off for renovations when Fullman played there. Wandering and playing the church was quite a big part of my enjoyment of Niblock's set
Avatar 4:55pm northguineahills:

Dok is a first class special person of the universe. I was going through a rough time w/ my wife and showed up at his place during a live performance, and he shoved a moog, some strings, a contact mic in front of me, and said, "play". He even let me stay the night on his couch.
Avatar 4:56pm weinstein:

Nice to hear, Fred. Thanks for all the thoughts today, everybody!
Avatar 4:58pm weinstein:

Dok and that crew are amazing. Special stuff, heart, courage. Rare. Wish peace to all.
Avatar 4:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever, Wed. 5-7pm ET):

Fantastically scary show today, David!
Avatar 4:59pm weinstein:

You will level me out.`
Avatar 4:59pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever, Wed. 5-7pm ET):

Coming right up at 5pm ET, a fresh brand new 2-hour collage:
Life is impossible, yet it happens. Go forward. Do. Keep going.
See you bravely there in a few moments!
