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 feel like this show is a remote campus of the Deep Listening Institute.
Avatar 3:10pm david w:

So the βrian thing is Greek, not German. I am guilty of not looking closely. Or being half blind...
Avatar 3:11pm david w:

Thanks, Jeff. That is a nice thought, though you may change your mind after the Scratch Piklz later.

Welcome, Fred. I will return to sanity I promise, hang on....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm listener james from westwood:

Whoa, capper on the Clinton Admin, this track. Everyone at the time thought this was Kurt Vonnegut's words. Likely an early Snopes debunking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm listener james from westwood:

The Venture Bros. uses a mix of the original Rozalla "Everybody's Free" that is absolutely amazing.
Avatar 4:07pm david w:

Yeah, it was not Vonnegut. And the damn thing has aged better than most of the parodies.

Bamboo! We have bamboo at Outpost!

One bumblebee so far. No pandas.

We have bumblebees, but the evil creatures are the squirrels. Pillaged the lemon tree and some exotic African plant Ruth was nurturing. And in Queens NY!

Lucinda Childs! I might be the only one, but I like Available Light (with music by John Adams) better than Dance.
I never saw Einstein On The Beach, but Wilson showed at a season presentation for a theater last Saturday and talked about his debut in Paris, a seven hour silent show.

Avatar 4:34pm david w:

He geezerette... that comes out of Sound Of Music yes? The mother nun corners poor Maria with that climb every mountain junk.
Avatar 4:38pm fred:

@David: No, and he wasn't silent much, except for a handful of seconds at first. Not an interesting talk, actually, telling a French audience how great and sophisticated the French are for seeing him as a great talent back then. But I had to be there to get the booking form early. Even average tickets for contemporary dance shows are hard to get over here
Avatar 4:41pm geezerette:

David,yep! Talk about earworms! That show is made of them.
Avatar 4:43pm david w:

@fred: yeah he has a very high opinion of himself. Yipes.
Avatar 4:47pm geezerette:

Love the OUIJA ad. You're right, it's a great description of RR.
Avatar 4:47pm david w:

@geez: When Plummer (overdubbed btw) sings Edelweiss I am reduced to sentimental pulp, very embarrassing.
Avatar 4:49pm fred:

"violators will be violated" sounds a little lame. I prefer "prosecutors will be transgressicuted"

Fred and Dalachinsky would make for a great dinner party.

Invisibl Skratch Piklz!!! I actually have that record, a gift from Billy Jam when I ordered a DJ Alf record from Hip Hop Slam
Avatar 4:53pm david w:

Always surprising, love them.
Avatar 4:53pm geezerette:

David, that's the word! I blubber at almost every Rodgers & Hammerstein song. The King and I is their second most embarrasing to succumb to.

Skratch Piklz ! New to me. :)

This show goes so fast! Thanks David & Ruth!
