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.

Hi David and intersesting music lovers.
Late in again.

We noticed, Stanley and now I am at peace.
Avatar 4:19pm northguineahills:

I like the pop angle of Skeletons (sort or Sea and Cake w/ bouts of outre jazz), I know some of the musicians in the group, just not w/ this band
Avatar 4:20pm david w:

Yes, ngh, Skeletons evolved in odd ways, always trying new angles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Stanley:

Thanks David, nice of you to say that.
My problem is I have so much on nowadays, my evenings are busy.
This, though, is perfect for me to forget my troubles and groove along.
Avatar 4:21pm fred:

This set is eclectic and pretty great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Webhamster Henry:

Well I've been missing a lot of this doing various kinds of work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Webhamster Henry:

Not that I'll get paid for any of it.
Avatar 4:25pm david w:

Thanks, fred and Henry, we are checking our pockets for cash.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Webhamster Henry:

One of the things we haven't done in the Mine is put in a pipe organ.

fred, following me around clickying the things i like, as usual :p
Avatar 4:56pm fred:

I remember seeing Horse Lords in the tiny basement of a bar a couple of years ago. Weird, but it was set up at the last minute. It was a great show (not unlike this one)
