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.

How do, and happy 2020!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm fred:

Hello and happy new year David, Ruth, james and other listners (including Stanley, though hardship might be coming)
Avatar 3:06pm david w:

Hello james and fred and welcome to the new year. Hope its fabulous. Have to wonder if Stanley got the memo!
Avatar 3:09pm Sem:

Hello, David, Ruth, the OAR group, fred & ljfw.
Hope everyone is well.
Avatar 3:10pm david w:

All the gang says hello, Sem.
Avatar 3:12pm Sem:

Stanley, I think, finds himself somewhere off the shoulder of Venezula, enjoying rum drinks and talking to parrots.
Which he speaks fluently, I should add. Parrot-speaker from wayback.

bonne année ridgewood! lovely initial tunes -- thanks for sparing the mouse boys today. how i wish we did not have to go to a brunch right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm WR:

Hello adventurous listeners and hosts. Connected to the stream and laying down for nap post new year's dinner. Today program description looks like I will be having nice time space dreams.
Avatar 3:14pm david w:

best year heinseng! might retire mouse boys... enjoy!
Avatar 3:15pm david w:

Yes, WR! Thought a peaceful afternoon might be welcome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm fred:

I wish the strike here will win, but it doesn't look that way. Joëlle Léandre has 3 days at my fave venue. I'll go to the one featuring Cleaver and Maneri, no matter how much I have to walk. The other two, I'm likely to chicken out
Avatar 3:41pm david w:

The Jew-bashing (and other Trump-inspired trauma) has pushed the strike below the fold here, so I've kind of lost track. For you, I've got some nice (unheard) Joelle stuff in the can here. I'll try to give you a heads up.

Hi all!
Avatar 3:42pm david w:

We're djazz-ed!
  3:43pm Ike:

Sounding good!
Avatar 3:47pm david w:

Thanks, Ike. There are some flurries and bursts to come, but mostly a few hours of gentle space.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm doctorjazz:

Purty, nice for today!
(Missed Blue Gene Tyrranny, always liked his stuff, have to check it out in the archives...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm fred:

@David: I lost track too by now, I just walk. I might still go to the other shows but leave halfway. I hate the idea though
Avatar 4:00pm david w:

Fred, I think you might have achieved prince status.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm fred:

@David: no way I'm spray-painting the love symbol on my leather jacket! (A friend of mine in high-school was a hardcore Prince fan, kept in touch with him for a while, and he did that. To his son's jacket too)
Avatar 4:07pm david w:

How to find Fred in Paris: WFMU t-shirt under leather jacket!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm fred:

Also, cowboy boots
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm fred:

I might also have a beer showing up from said leather jacket's pocket, as shown here (and permanently on my profile page)
Avatar 4:23pm david w:

And long hair! The profile emerges.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm fred:

What's left of the hair goes as it wants, last time I got it cut was 25 years ago, but it's brittle
Avatar 4:42pm david w:

I cut mine years ago, but I'm not bald by some miracle!
Avatar 4:42pm northguineahills:

dern, missed Morty, but Alice!
Avatar 4:44pm david w:

hey ngh. that's a really nice Feldman when you get a moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm fred:

But really the easiest way to find me is to go to Instants Chavirés. Even if I'm not there (likely meaning I'm at a dance show), it will be worth your time. Actually, my being there wouldn't improve that one bit
  4:48pm Dave in Vermont on the phone:

I love the ease with which you put seemingly disparate pieces together.
Avatar 4:49pm david w:

That is a really nice thing to hear, Dave in V. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm fred:

That fire and other ones is why copyright law is flawed. Saving this should come before profuits
Avatar 4:50pm david w:

Plus they covered it up!
Avatar 4:50pm northguineahills:

This Chet Baker sounds a lot earlier then 1980 (except the recording quality)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm doctorjazz:

Just lovely, thanks, David, Happy New Year!
Avatar 4:52pm Sem:

Nice Chet, thank you very much, David. See you and the usual suspects next time. Byeeeeeee.
Avatar 4:52pm david w:

Thanks, all. Best really best to you all for 2020.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm fred:

Again, happy new year all!
Avatar 4:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks david and friends, have happy new beers!
Avatar 4:58pm david w:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm WR:

Dr John! Great wake up music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm WR:

Actually David I consciously heard bits of everything except Baker and Alice Coltrane. The Feldman was very nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm WR:

The Dr John was the beginning of the next show. Nap time over.
