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.

Howdy David and folks!
Avatar 3:07pm fred:

Sadly, it took an illness cancellation, but I will finally get to see Samara Lubelski tomorrow (with Bill Nace, and a Michiyo Yagi/Tony Buck duo also on that bill). I've been consistently missing her stops here for years
Avatar 3:07pm Schell:

Cuong Vu is from right here in Seattle. The other half of Cristina Valdes, who just premiered a version of Heiner Goebbels' Surrogate during his time out here with the Symphony.
Avatar 3:08pm david w:

Howdy chresti and glad to see Dr. Schell again, too!
Avatar 3:10pm david w:

That should be terrific, Fred.
Avatar 3:13pm david w:

Well, Schell, our conversation thread continues!

Thanks, Stanley. To you as well.

This peace is excellent.

I fully endorse unpredictability as the best of all abilities.

Hello, David, Ruth, the OAR firm, Stanley, and all.
Avatar 3:24pm david w:

Crothers/Bisio were a great pairing. And almost all her "pieces" on this night were about peace, or at least anti-war.
Avatar 3:26pm david w:

Super Sem!

Avatar 3:38pm fred:

I've had a few confusing interactions with coworkers lately: it seems there's a Toni Braxton who's unrelated to Anthony Braxton, in any way. I didn't know about her
Avatar 3:42pm david w:

Yeah, Fred. Kind of polar opposites. A confused conversation that I imagine could be quite amusing.
Avatar 3:54pm fred:

@David: it was, in retrospect. My lack of knowledge about Toni matched theirs about Anthony. And we probably all walked out thinking "how come they don't even know about Braxton". Which isn't a good thing (I plead guilty)
Avatar 4:02pm david w:

A conversation something like: Person A says "I love how Braxton embeds quantum theory on this last album" and Person B rolls eyes and says, "you mean the retro beats?".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm steveo:

all I know as that this has nothing to do with Tony! Toni! Toné!
Avatar 4:09pm fred:

@steveo: how come there's no Toné Braxton project? Here's your next name!
@David; close enough
Avatar 4:19pm fred:

@David: except I was the clueless one, and the latest one ended with the killer line "That Braxton? I think maybe my dad has one of his records" Which is probably not even true, but point taken
Avatar 4:23pm david w:

I have junior assistants, many in their 20s, who dropped that line to me. They're trying!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Stanley:

Jazz haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Webhamster Henry:

Jamie Saft is impressive. He lives up here in the Mid Hudson. We played in the same Maryanne Amacher birthday party last year.
Avatar 4:37pm david w:

Hello, Henry! I kind of went off the rails there, didn't I?
Avatar 4:39pm fred:

That's some nice trumpet playing there, with the right processing
Avatar 4:42pm david w:

Processing can be a cheap crutch, and it is everywhere these days. But not here. (Man, I'm cranky today!).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Jeff Golick:

It's as though this show emerged fully formed out of my subconscious. GET OUT OF MY HEAD, WEINSTEIN.
Avatar 4:51pm david w:

Look into my eyes...
Avatar 4:57pm david w:

That's it, all. Thank you!
Avatar 4:58pm fred:

@Jeff: you're so lucky that something straight out of your mind sounds so good. And you all are lucky that what comes out of my subconscious doesn't make it to the air. Nobody needs an Urtyn Duu/Okinawa/noise soundtrack to abstract contemporary dance
Avatar 4:58pm Schell:

¡'sta luego!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Stanley:

Great show, David. I like a bit of jazz now and again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm steveo:

thanks for the show (and the jazz rant!) see you!
Avatar 4:58pm fred:

Thanks David
