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.

Skull fully immobilized for a trepanning session, so a captive audience for today's goings-on, David. Hello, Ruth, and the OAR culture shock troops!

Now a buzzing in my ear...amd away we go.
Avatar 3:13pm david w:

Hey, Sem, everybody is buzzing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm coelacanth∅:

hey David and Ridgies

i have a buzzing in my head too; and i'm reminded of that Prokofiev piece, "love for 26 stinkbugs".
Avatar 3:19pm david w:

Prokofiev, mmm (and ick!). Welcome, coel!
Avatar 3:21pm geezerette:

Yummy-gummy ear worms!
Hello, David, Ruth, & early trick or treaters.
Avatar 3:23pm david w:

Hello, geez. I've had a thing stuck in my head all week, but I won't tell for fear of hurting somebody.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm steveo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar 3:25pm david w:

Yeah, pictures are back! Thanks to Kenzo and the FMU crew who made things sweeter yet again!
Avatar 3:26pm david w:

Hi all!
Avatar 3:45pm david w:

Hi to you, doctor, can I offer you a bon bon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm steveo:

i tried not to like this one, just for something different, but I failed to do so
Avatar 3:49pm david w:

steveo is always trying to trick the brain.

Guerilla Toss purging any country music commentary that lingers from last week. Sorry about the hijacking!
Avatar 4:01pm david w:

Yes Henry, but in a welcoming way.
Avatar 4:03pm david w:

heinseng you welcome to hijack is good thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm doctorjazz:

Just a bon will be fine, done want to be piggy.
Avatar 4:06pm david w:

OK. I'd say more for me, but this is a zero sum program.
Avatar 4:09pm geezerette:

I like this a lot but I trace the roots back to women's performance pieces going back to '70s, after which it became a style.
Avatar 4:12pm david w:

No argument there, geez. This was the live thing and the new studio stuff might surprise you.
Avatar 4:14pm northguineahills:

Guerrilla Toss ever go to the Sleepytime Gorilla Museum?
Avatar 4:15pm geezerette:

David, name some things that might be on youtube. I'd love to be surprised.
Avatar 4:17pm david w:

Have you seen Andrya Ambro's new video for Gold Dime? Or maybe Eartheater?
Avatar 4:20pm geezerette:

Guerilla Toss a nod to Gorilla Girls?
And it drives me nuts when anything becomes an orthodoxy, but we're herd animals so it's hard to escape group think.

I haven't & will lok them up. Thanks for lighting the way.
Avatar 4:23pm geezerette:

Avatar 4:26pm david w:

You may want to "lok" them up, I picked two that I have mixed feelings about, curious to learn yours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm steveo:

as John would say: JAZZ
Avatar 4:30pm david w:

Avatar 4:32pm david w:

And more trombone!
Avatar 4:33pm Franco Twinkie:

I was outside shelling black eyed peas, then I came in for something cold to drink, only to be assaulted by underground freak out music. Who's running things around there?
Avatar 4:35pm david w:

Franco you have guessed what is next, and Freak Out is the clue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm steveo:

yes hurrah!
Avatar 4:44pm geezerette:

Zappa!!! :D
Appropriate since this show always zaps by sooo fast!
Avatar 4:44pm Franco Twinkie:

This is a different version? I detect slight differences, no?
Avatar 4:46pm david w:

Apparently there are several mixes out there. This one was the cleanest, richest sound I found.
Avatar 4:50pm geezerette:

Thanks, David & Ruth!
Fellow temporary citizens of Ridgewood...

Sucker for those long, clean sax lines.
Avatar 4:52pm david w:

Thanks, geez and everyone. Hot Rats!
Avatar 4:53pm Franco Twinkie:

Missed chance of a lifetime: There was this really shitty Mexican restaurant right down the street from my house, One day I walked by and there was this poster in the window for Don and Dewey who were going to do a weeks residency there. I thought cool! I'll go one night. Apparently they did one night then cancelled the rest of the shows. Of course Don was Don 'Sugarcane' Harris.
Avatar 4:55pm david w:

Oy. I saw Zappa with Flo and Eddie (Turtles) who got dissed on the Freak Out liner notes years earlier.
Avatar 4:56pm david w:

Note the thingleberry at the top of the page, ready to receive love and fuel for the future.
Avatar 4:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Coming up here next on Ken's Last Ever...: Julie Andrews, Ronald Reagan, & Ronald Reagan: Three sound collage greats from the Austin years. Come hither: wfmu.org...
Avatar 4:57pm david w:

Thanks, all!
Avatar 4:58pm Franco Twinkie:

The story goes that Don was in jail and Johnny Otis, who was running the band for Frank bailed him out to do the Hot Rat sessions.
