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.

Wow, Fred. Chavez is always on the road, surprised she hasn't crossed your path before.

Paris isn't a good place for shows, many tours don't stop there because of a lack of mid-size venues, and of small ones that do pay enough to make it worth coming
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:22pm Sem:

Hello, David, Ruth, the Ridgewood on-the-bus gang, and all, east-coasters, west coasters, roller-coasters, no matter.

Rosenfeld announced theisshow as "generating a composition from an animated video projection-as-score" but I wasn't there so I can't explain.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:25pm david w:

Hi there, Sem and your UKoasters all.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:26pm david w:

@Fred; you know that has been the problem in Paris since I was touring through the 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/16/19 3:28pm doctorjazz:

I'm fairly predictable .. Looking forward to it!
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:29pm david w:

djazz you embrace a lot of stuff, but I think I've learned what gets you jumping.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:32pm northguineahills:

First time I saw Maria Chavez was on a roof overlooking McCarren Park (above Matchless). Everything had to go up a vertical ladder through a small slit in the roof. Talibam! also played. It was a challenge getting all of the equipment of the musicians up and down , but, we managed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/16/19 3:36pm fred:

@David: Did you ever stop at Instants Chavirés? I think they opened in the early 90s (though they were, and stil are, in Montreuil)
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:38pm northguineahills:

Don't worry, no one can pronounce my two syllable Scottish/English last name, and it's the same as a famous astronomer who predicted the orbit of a comet.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:38pm david w:

Gee, Fred, I don't remember that place, though some of my tours with Elliott Sharp were so whirlwind I never knew where I was.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:46pm still b/p:

Never saw the full Jason and Argonauts. When I was about 8, long before references to the film, to Ray, to the mythology would become more familiar, I recall being subjected to an enthusiastic friend's long, long-ass telling of the whole movie story.
Kids still do that?
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:48pm northguineahills:

Heck, people in NYC pronounce my first name different then down South...………………..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/16/19 3:48pm chresti:

still b/p- yes because they've watched it a million times
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:48pm david w:

Since Harryhausen's pre-computer animations have so much charm (and terror!) I imagine kids are still tuned in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/16/19 3:48pm chresti:

That happens to me too, ngh

@stillp b/p: I've seen the original and the via MST3K.

This IS cool!
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:52pm still b/p:

Even eager tedious adults who toss spoilers and scene descriptions don't seem to do that kid thing of trying to relate everything from first to final frame. Though maybe that will be valued and welcome around the post-Apocalypse campfire.

Hi David and listeners. Loving this.

Last weekend, I listened to a telling of Jason and the Golden Fleece on a podcast, oddly enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/16/19 3:56pm Jeff Golick:

@David: have you heard/seen Wooley's Seven Storey Mtn project? So beautiful and strange.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 3:57pm david w:

I do not know that Wooley piece, Jeff. Is it released or something new touring... ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/16/19 4:02pm Jeff Golick:

It's an ongoing concern: natewooley.com...

Some versions have been released: natewooley.bandcamp.com...

And he can pull off showing up with his own name on his jacket and not look ridiculous

Oh sure, winter wonderland on the North Atlantic. If it wasn't for the smoked salmon, I'd move west...
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 4:31pm geezerette:

Ha, today we're having liquid snow. What a luxury; the sycamores shine like copper and our street is a shallow creek with leaf-boats in lazy regatta.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/16/19 4:32pm fred:

The first time I saw McPhee play with Chris Corsano, Corsano was playing shy and far too respectful. So at a point McPhee pulled a chair and sat, making a show of inspecting his saxophone. That worked, short and long term; I've seen that duo twice since and there was no need for that
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 4:33pm northguineahills:

I love Joe McPhee!

I saw Joe McPhee w/ David Ware (RIP) at the Pink Pony. I think Joe played 8 different instruments that night....
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 4:44pm northguineahills:

Wow, potatoes last forever, I have 11 month old potatoes I'm using for soup that were still good in my fridge (and 15 month old frozen corn).

ngh Ooh now I want to try my old potato
