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.

Shirley Bassey's Goldfinger for me, listener james.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm listener james from westwood:

Greetings, David and Ruth, and hope all's well in your hollowed-out volcano lair!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm listener james from westwood:

@Stanley: That's my other co-fave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Stanley:

It's those damned Mouse Boys in the house again.
Avatar 3:04pm fred:

Good afternoon David and all.
If think Chris M once did a set using only covers of You Only Live Twice and Midnight Cowboy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Stanley:

Yay! James.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Webhamster Henry:

My favorite Bond theme is Dr. Evil.
Avatar 3:11pm weinstein:

Hey all. Outside of the Bond themes, have you dug the John Barry score to Dances with Wolves?
Avatar 3:12pm northguineahills:

I had no idea he did that, TBH, I can't recall anything Barry did after the 70s...
Avatar 3:14pm fred:

I now primarily associate John Barry with Beat Girl, because of Bob Brainen (I haven't seen that movie)
Avatar 3:15pm weinstein:

Check it out. It's beautiful but even more a masterpiece in construction, themes, sub-themes, characters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm listener james from westwood:

Has Morricone Island done a John Barry show? I'd be surprised if he hadn't by now....
Avatar 3:20pm weinstein:

I guess Beat Girl is to Brainen what Mouse Boys are to this joint.
Avatar 3:23pm weinstein:

I don't know if Devon Levin has done an all Barry show but he is all over that stuff regularly. Fab show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Webhamster Henry:

Yeah I wish Morricone Island were longer. Soundtracks are often operatic in scope and need time to play and discuss!
Avatar 3:32pm fred:

I love pipa!
Avatar 3:47pm weinstein:

Are you getting yourself lost in this Fred? I think Min Xiao Fen gets in pretty deep, but also has fun.
Avatar 3:51pm fred:

I love this. It's deep, getting way beyond traditional stuff, without losing the character of the instrument. I wish I could see her play. Thanks to you, I'm checking her site once in a while, but no luck so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Stanley:

Me, too. I loved that last set.
Avatar 4:09pm weinstein:

After a mysterious and poetic intro, Cécile shows an aggressive side. And keeps surprising.
Avatar 4:16pm geezerette:

Love everything I've heard & am hearing.
Agree with Fred and Stanley about Min Xiao Fen.
David, your show always feels like meditation to me, love the way blank or negative space is used,
Avatar 4:19pm weinstein:

Thanks, geez. Ruth always punches me when there is silence. She wants nonstop action!
Avatar 4:20pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm listener james from westwood:

I like the way geezerette phrased that and concur. Muy simpático with copyediting and proofreading.
Avatar 4:25pm geezerette:

James, cheers!
Avatar 4:25pm weinstein:

Long time FMU magic, and I guess radio in general, is that people are reading, writing, drawing, painting while they listen.
Avatar 4:28pm geezerette:

Yes,it's wonderful.
Avatar 4:35pm weinstein:

Broche has a newer release, built like this but with sounds from Paris, called 3D@Paris.
Avatar 4:37pm fred:

Yeah, that's why I like radio. I can do something else, while sometimes stopping when something arresting comes up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm listener james from westwood:

I've been remiss in not mentioning to you both that last week's show was wonderful. I'd had a doc's app't in the middle of it and caught it on the archive. Very much enjoy that musical mode of expression.
Avatar 4:43pm weinstein:

Thanks, James. That was a passion project. It's nice to know it connected.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm listener james from westwood:

I wouldn't say no to a pt. 2 if you had the material!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm listener james from westwood:

(But of course just a suggestion. One of the great joys of this program is I NEVER know what the 2 hours will bring until they begin!)
Avatar 4:52pm fred:

Thanks David, as usual
Avatar 4:52pm geezerette:

Thanks again,David and Ruth!
Avatar 4:53pm weinstein:

Once I did that tuning show I got a lot of suggestions and comments from folks noting what what not there. And it is a lot. So stay tuned, as they say!
Avatar 4:55pm weinstein:

Fred, geez, James, Stanley, Henry and all haunting the edges, thank yoooo!
Avatar 4:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Coming up right on this stream in just a few minutes, two hours of playful and surprising sound collage, with poetic live phone callers, cows, and Donald Rumsfeld.

Come along to the chat! wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey hey, it's the Monk!
Avatar 4:56pm weinstein:

Let's all get Kenzo-ed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, y'all, for the grand spread of tracks!
