weinstein's avatar View weinstein's profile Options

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.

Thanks to 100% Mary, and I'm emulating you today with 27 tracks, which I never do. Just doing it backwards, and in high heels.

That picture is so totally wrong, though. Everybody needs to have the same limb on the same color.

You could do a Roulette roulette show sometime.

Limb? Appendage?

Wow, Mary really memorized those rules.

WebHen, welcome! (this one is a little bit roulette actually)

I'm a Twister fiend. Or I used to be; I don't think my knees will tolerate such activities anymore...

Funny that it is the promo image released by the company.

Maybe they've changed the rules for the millennials, heh. Put your left foot anywhere!

Did Doc mention a spree? Count me in. Hello, David, Ruth, the OAR amazement, and Ridgewoodians all over everywhere, but never overwhelmed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm doctorjazz:

And Blood Ulmer! Cool!
  3:16pm Dean:

Listened yesterday to about an hour and a half of Rene Zosso on hurdy gurdy, with Anne Osnowycz.
Avatar 3:17pm david w:

Sem! and gailv! That doc song is actually pretty dirty, I noticed.
Avatar 3:18pm david w:

Dean, I'm in for more and will check that out.
  3:20pm Dean:

Here's a good 1:17 minutes, preceded by an introduction in German: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_NrdJXAans
  3:21pm Dean:

Er, that's one hour, 17 minutes.
Avatar 3:24pm david w:

Thanks, Dean. An instrument I always wanted to try, along with the clavinet and anything built by Harry Partch.
  3:30pm Dean:

You'll want to play spinet, then, too, after you see Anne O.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm doctorjazz:

David Murray had a great take on this melody on his early album, Flowers For Albert (took the melody and put a Caribbean beat underneath).
Avatar 3:34pm david w:

That Ayler melody has really stuck.
  3:35pm heinseng:

OK kept the twister limbs separate for first four tracks but now the vinyl is twisted around us and it's getting sweaty in here. Digging the heat we were hoping for in 1967.
Avatar 3:36pm david w:

heinseng, I'm soooo with with you.
  3:44pm northguineahills:

Need the sounds when I’m a driving!
Avatar 3:44pm david w:

ngh! perfect driving music!
  3:58pm Dean:

Heh, just occurred to me: Rene Zosso. Secret appearance perhaps on LZ4? (Mary Wing made a similar remark this a.m.)

wow and... hmmm...
