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.

And throw some leftovers to the Mouse Boys.

What is this diabolical sound?

hi! never listened to the MMB's percussion so intently before...

Hi ridgwoods! Sounds good!

Hi, chresti! Bang, boom, zoom!
Avatar Wed. 7/31/19 3:18pm david w:

Hey, steveo. I think the Mouse Boys are mostly about percussion, we just focus on those squeaky noises just to terrify Stanley.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 7/31/19 3:36pm steveo:

thanks for your insight :) yes the vocals usually catch my attention on that piece (but maybe they are percussive vocals)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 7/31/19 3:42pm doctorjazz:

Interesting title...

Wonder why he used it...
Avatar Wed. 7/31/19 3:43pm david w:

Somebody said about somebody (I forget) that they could break your heart with a drum solo. Jerome is working this angle I believe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 7/31/19 4:09pm fred:

Good afternoon David, Ruth and listeners. Work getting in the way of a set featuring Min Xiao Fen is not a good thing
Avatar Wed. 7/31/19 4:11pm david w:

Yes, Fred. Min in any setting is a delight. But let's make sure the rent gets paid!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 7/31/19 4:20pm fred:

Well, looks like I still heard a good chunk of it. And my recent long hours got me a rare "thank you", and from a veteran composer, which is even rarer.
Avatar Wed. 7/31/19 4:23pm david w:

Fred, we all suspect you are very good at your job, so well deserved I'm sure.

Ah, the Oscars of Sci-Fi. Send the love!

I guess Scraps might have voted already, he seems to like sci-fi
Avatar Wed. 7/31/19 4:41pm david w:

I haven't seen Scraps here in a while. Have you all?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 7/31/19 4:44pm fred:

Last week. He was a regular on Sinead's show and worried about why she left abruptly. But I haven't on the playlists much since then, so he could very well have been around more recently
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 7/31/19 4:50pm Michael 98145:

I'm so glad i actually was able to see Eugene a couple times. Back in the day.
Avatar Wed. 7/31/19 4:50pm david w:

He's a wild one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 7/31/19 4:54pm fred:

I saw him once solo and got tired of his clownish style. But I also saw him years ago with Jimmy Carl Black and the slapstick routine worked very well. And the music was really good both times
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 7/31/19 4:54pm sphere:

Totes agree.

Thanks David

David, one of those shows I thought wouldn't be for me.
I was wrong, again. Thanks for a great show.
