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.

steveo, I only remember you being wrong once before, but it was a minor offense.

Hi everyone, what have I missed?
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 3:22pm david w:

Hello Coverdale... basically, three hellos, one confession, and Tuvan singers.
  Wed. 1/9/19 3:23pm David Coverdale's Prick:

appreciate the swift response
  Wed. 1/9/19 3:23pm Feek:

The Tuvan singers were great. And this current track is pleasant to do tedious photoshop work to.
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 3:24pm Sem:

Hello, David, Ruth, the Ridgewood ensemble, and all. Everything here is always new to me, so new to you too is especially engaging. Just now taking a chair in the orgone box and letting the sounds wash over me.
  Wed. 1/9/19 3:25pm David Coverdale's Prick:

which David?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 3:25pm Ike:

Sounds good.

Thanks, Feek. I think the trend of this show will continue to massage your clicking hand.

New Jimbo O'Rourke & friends, nice! I thought he only would do music this day for sndtrks (wife has a major crush on him).
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 3:33pm northguineahills:

Don't know U-zhaan…. but it works!
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 3:33pm david w:

Hey, ngh! O'Rourke keeps adding and subtracting projects but I never tire...
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 3:44pm northguineahills:

What I like about Jim, he's very friendly. He talked to me many times at Tonic and would say hi to me on the street (before he moved to Tokyo). The last time I saw him was at Other Music where he had a vinyl copy of Naked City's "Leng T'che" in front of me online.
  Wed. 1/9/19 3:46pm David Coverdale's Prick:

u mean in line
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 3:50pm david w:

O'Rourke is curious. In every sense.

Not familiar w/ Cecilia Lopez, gneissness!

she's overrated

New album, major commission... Cecilia Lopez will emerge big time this year and you all can decide for yourselves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 4:02pm steveo:

wouldn't "David Coverdale's Whitesnake" be funnier?

coelacanth∅! good to see you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 4:12pm Stanley:

Is this some new adventurous experimental music I hear?
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 4:13pm david w:

No, its neo-retro post-ambient futurism.
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 4:14pm david w:

Hello, Stanley!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 4:14pm steveo:

i can't make it, unfortunately. you might call ahead, though; google and yelp seem to think nha minh is permanently closed
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 4:14pm northguineahills:

Dan Joseph, also new to me, and digdug!

@david w: I played at Nha Minh right before I left. They have amazing Vietnamese food! (their PA wasn't working at the time, and the usual guy that knows the system wasn't there, so I had to ask a friend to bring me a PA).

@david: quarter of my office got laid off, so, I can focus on cooking for the time being.

I've been napping, but woke up for the hammered dulcimer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 4:20pm Webhamster Henry:

It's funny , I was thinking this morning a survey of XI recordings would be nice! especially after this morning's Blurred and Obscured fill-in show.
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 4:21pm northguineahills:

Yeah, it was Matt who got me the gig...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 4:23pm chresti:

I've not heard the blurred and obscured show, may be too early for me.
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 4:27pm david w:

@Henry, the XI collection is great, and hopefully more from the Experimental Intermedia archives can be released one day. 45 years!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 4:28pm Webhamster Henry:

@cresti this morning, it was a fill-in for Ken, it's up in the archives now: www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 4:30pm chresti:

Thanks Webhamster Henry, I have a lot of catching up to do with the shows I've missed...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 4:32pm Webhamster Henry:

@davidw Experimental Intermedia was one of the arts groups (along with WFMU, the American Festival of Microtonal Music, Experimental Musical Instruments, Harvestworks and more) that I maintained on the ECHO gopher. I was always conscious of new XI releases!
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 4:34pm david w:

I remember ECHO. Fabulous. Important. Nice work!

Also love Frisell's cover of "You Only Live Twice."

(hey, gz'ette)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/9/19 4:39pm steveo:

ok, so I guess Matt did confirm it's open. Sorry for the confusion. I also found an instagram post from 7 hours ago. www.instagram.com...
  Wed. 1/9/19 4:41pm Mark R:

Henry, that's actually Scott McDowell's regular spot. Ken took the Fall schedule off this year to focus on the massive construction project at 43 Montgomery Street, along with all the other fiascos he must try to corral. I'm going to assume he'll return to the schedule when things have settled down a little. Blurred and Obscured Jonathan used to have a regular overnight 3-6 am show. There's more talent than time slots at this station--an enviable dilemma to have, I suppose.
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 4:44pm northguineahills:

I was outside in my garden, came inside, and immediately knew it was Daniel Carter (old friend and collaborator of mine, and a special person of the universe!)
Avatar Wed. 1/9/19 4:45pm david w:

Thanks, steveo and 98145, you are right on... Mark R, thanks also. Folks may not be aware of the construction disruptions at FMU.
