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.

I'm not miserably far from the Canadian border in case I need to hightail it.

I've been listening, very nice today David & Ruth!

Fans of loud noises might like to drop in at the Widow Jane Mine in Rosendale, NY on Sunday at 3PM for a a dance & Gong performance by the Secret Gong Orchestra.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm David D:

Hello David and everyone - enjoying the sounds from over yonder...
Avatar 3:33pm weinstein:

Thanks Henry and DD and NGH... everyone is on point today. The noise posse!

Hearing leaf blowers and vacuums in the mix.
Avatar 3:46pm weinstein:

There really are jackhammers next door but I'm pretty sure the mic is down.... it's the Bellerue magic mixture!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Stanley:

Hi David. I was just thinking that nowadays I find listening to stuff like this far more preferable to any other 'entertainment'. My partner says I'm weird. (A small price to pay)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Stanley:

When I mean 'entertainment' I mean teevee, films, reading etc.
Avatar 3:48pm weinstein:

Stanley, I'd like to say you are not weird. But then again....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Doug Schulkind:

It's an extra vaganza.
Avatar 3:53pm fred:

@Stanley: I tend to think it's better to be called weird than boring. Especially by your partner
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Webhamster Henry:

I've been tending away from musical works that have perceivable beginnings, endings, rhythms, melodies, or harmonies. I'm not quite ready to give up timbre.
Avatar 3:55pm weinstein:

I've lived with "weird" so long.. you know, let your freak flag fly kind of thing. It has become comfortable.
Avatar 3:58pm northguineahills:

I somehow never came across Bob Bellerue. Nice stuff...
Avatar 3:58pm weinstein:

I'm not sure timbre is negotiable, wouldn't the universe just evaporate?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Stanley:

Thanks Fred. I love music like this, it's a joy to be able to hear it played to me like this show (and others on this station)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Ike:

Universes are negotiable.
Avatar 4:15pm fred:

Timbre is kind of a weird word. I've heard it said in at least three different ways, and I have so idea which one is right. In addition, google translating it from French tends to yield stamp, adding to the confusion
Avatar 4:17pm coelacanth∅:

regarding earlier conversation about being "weird" - i used to have a friend who used to get to the point of tears about being mocked on or shunned for being weird. having been quite used to that for my whole life i said i didn't understand how she wasn't happy about it, and that once she realises WHY she's weird to them, and why they feel the need to say so, she'll be strong enough to tell them how pathetically boring and weak they are, and to fuck off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Ike:

I've always pronounced it just like "timber", the word we yell when we're cutting down trees (not that I've ever cut down any trees). Interesting to see "tam-bər" as an alternate choice in M-W.
Avatar 4:22pm fred:

@Ike: I remember seeing a Canadian researcher getting almost angry (maybe that was downright angry for a Canadian) about that "timber" pronunciation
Avatar 4:25pm weinstein:

Timbre=texture. Weird=a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. They both probably sound better in French.
Avatar 4:27pm geezerette:

Weirdness is entirely contextual.
Avatar 4:30pm northguineahills:

This has an E.A.R. vibe going on...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Stanley:

Is this a jam?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Stanley:

Yup, I just read it is.
Avatar 4:32pm fred:

David: I don't know about that, but I (too) often have to take part in conf call where the word comes up, and confusion only lengthens the ordeal. Maybe that's why that Canadian was so insistent. Asking for timbre specialists (timbre is one of his main research topics) in the wrong way could get some undesired applications up there
Avatar 4:32pm geezerette:

I've often heard people say "tamb" for timbre, in a way that sort of emphasizes the b, gradually trailing off. Being a non French speaker I have no idea if that's meant to sound French, or actually is.
Avatar 4:33pm weinstein:

I think after three long days of this they were all so exhausted they stopped trying to entertain us and were really listening to each other.
Avatar 4:34pm fred:

@geezerette: It's not that far from French, actually, one of the rare times were the "r" is barely there
Avatar 4:36pm geezerette:

Thanks Fred! It's always seemed authentic to me when pronounced that way.
Avatar 4:45pm geezerette:

Coel, hope your friend found her people, the ones that love what she loves and can share insights and knowledge with her.
Sorta like fmu!
