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.

Welcome James, welcome Fred. Greetings Steveo. Here we go!

greetings David and Ridgies
Avatar 3:09pm david w:

Hey, coel. Thanks for dialing in!
Avatar 3:10pm fred:

Mary Halvorson! I find it annoyingly weird that I've only seen her once
Avatar 3:13pm david w:

Yeah, Fred!? She plays out and tours a lot. This set is early years just after release of debut disc, Dragon's Head.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm doctorjazz:

Hi, looking forward to the show! (also have only seen her once at the Village Vanguard last year, have to catch her again)
Avatar 3:15pm fred:

I know, that's what makes it weird. I saw her in 2009, a trio with Weasel Walter and Peter Evans
Avatar 3:17pm david w:

Hello Doc! And Fred points out another thing: she plays with a wide variety of folks and different configurations. Interesting and smart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm doctorjazz:

This is quite a band!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm doctorjazz:

I find it very interesting how she plays with a tone like, say, Tal Farlow, but such a different musical vision
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi David & Ruth!
Avatar 3:25pm david w:

Hi Henry! Join the tones! (Ruth says hi to everybody too).
Avatar 3:37pm Sem:

Hello, David and Ridgewood folk. Along for the ride once again.
Avatar 3:38pm fred:

This was a great set
Avatar 3:41pm northguineahills:

Nice Mary set!
Avatar 3:42pm david w:

Hello Sem! And thanks, Fred, NGH. Halvorson is fab indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm doctorjazz:

Great set by Mary, and just LOVE Spence's guitar and growls!
Avatar 4:17pm northguineahills:

I have to admit Nix/Fanous are new to me.... (actually listening to Ornette in the car for commute, hit my Coleman section....
Avatar 4:25pm david w:

Quick note on Bern Nix... he mastered Ornette Coleman's theory of Harmolodics and used it as well as anybody, and could explain it beautifully. A fine soul, passed ini May 2017.
Avatar 4:28pm geezerette:

Hello, David, Ruth, everyone!
Arien Shafiee is lovely. Just what I needed.
Avatar 4:30pm northguineahills:

Hate when I discover an artist after they've passed (well, that's a lot of them in my case, especially the ones who passed before I got into music).

Arien Safiee is also new to me!
Avatar 4:31pm geezerette:

Wonderful playlist.

NGH, new to me as well!
Avatar 4:31pm david w:

Hello, Geez and welcome to the gentle moments (which are about to get noisy so hope you can make the transition!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm steveo:

about to? that first hard strum almost knocked me off my chair :)
Avatar 4:34pm geezerette:

I can deal, David. Thanks for warning. :)
Avatar 4:35pm geezerette:

Ha! See what you mean!
Avatar 4:37pm david w:

Yep. And this leads us into...
Avatar 4:38pm fred:

I saw Guerilla Toss once and really liked them
Avatar 4:38pm david w:

7 minutes of Terry Kath feeding back!
Avatar 4:39pm northguineahills:

would you they were a gorilla, ya tosser?
Avatar 4:40pm northguineahills:

ok, why does Chicago Transit Authority ring a bell but Terry Kath doesn't. (need to get my head checked).
Avatar 4:40pm david w:

Guerilla Toss is terrific and I put a live set of theirs on this show years back, recorded at Shea Stadium (the Bklyn club).
Avatar 4:41pm fred:

Well, I saw The Dead C two days ago and they where in a noise mood, so just 7 minutes of feedback doesn't sound daunting
Avatar 4:41pm david w:

A tough bunch here, but we all knew that.
Avatar 4:42pm geezerette:

Heh! Gr-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-vy...
Avatar 4:43pm david w:

@ngh: sad story if you Google-ize Kath. Dead by 31. The band changed a lot too.
Avatar 4:43pm geezerette:

Hendrix' ghost.
Avatar 4:44pm david w:

They were compared favorably in their time.
Avatar 4:45pm geezerette:

Fred, gonna search out Gorilla Toss just for the name!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm steveo:

been a super show, really enjoying. was that the noise? sounded like butterscotch.
Avatar 4:46pm northguineahills:

I think I have an mp3 album by them, but it it was later I think.

I used to live a block away from the (Brooklyn) Shea Stadium. Was there at least once a month.
Avatar 4:46pm geezerette:

Pretty darn Avant!
Avatar 4:50pm northguineahills:

I saw the Dead C once. It was an actually large crowd. (dig all things Michael Morley).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Stanley:

Happy listening, David.
Great, we're back with Joseph
Avatar 4:52pm geezerette:

Morley, 'nother name to search! :D
Avatar 4:53pm david w:

The Spence cycle! Thanks Stanley and everybody!
Avatar 4:53pm northguineahills:

Joseph Spence, no relation to Skip Spence (I presume).
Avatar 4:57pm fred:

I once saw Morley (as Gate) at a show that was very sparsely attended because of what counts as heavy snow around here (like a quarter of an inch). I got to talk to him and he was very nice. I asked whether there could be a rerelease of the lavender head, but no chance
Avatar 4:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Coming up next here on the Drummer stream: "There's So Much Left to Do (what's the secret? finding out by doing)"

Hypnotic drifts and optimism. Come enjoy this favorite plunderphonic live improvised sound collage for the next two hours:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm Stanley:

Two hours just isn't enough.
Many thanks, again. David.
Avatar 4:58pm david w:

Thank you!
Avatar 4:58pm geezerette:

Yay archive! Thanks, David, Ruth, gang!
Just wonderful!!!
Avatar 4:58pm Sem:

Lots of earful joy, thank you David, Ruth and all Ridgewood folk. Next time!
Avatar 4:59pm fred:

Thanks David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm listener james from westwood:

Delightful afternoon tracks! Thanks!!
Avatar 4:59pm david w:

Thanks all! You are the best!
