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.

Arthur Russell  Concert Recording   Options Roulette Concert Series  Roulette Archive  2 March 85  “The Deer In The Forest,” and other extended vocal compositions for amplified cello and voice, with Peter Zummo, trombone, and Elodie Lauten (or Steven Hall) on Casio keyboard. Considered early versions of songs that became more focused later. For example, Each Step Is Moving (around 7 minutes in), is substantially This Is How We Walk On The Moon, which wasn’t released until 1993, posthumously.  In this concert Russell was experimenting with repeated phrases and lines, as if testing them out, which emerged later in more developed versions.

If you're up late on Halloween (Midnight ET), scare away the straggling trick-or-treaters with our Radio Eclectus Halloween edition. I've got the new Zappa Halloween '73 and the now-scarce original recording of Stimmung on its 50th anniversary.

I was Elodie's webmaster for a while until she died.
Avatar 5:00pm Schell:

Did she end up preferring the French or Anglicized pronunciation of her last name?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks Outposters!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Webhamster Henry:

I always used the English version.
Avatar 5:01pm david w:

It's fun to try French. She was pretty anglicized. Thanks all!
