Due to extenuating circumstances last Wednesday, I manned the controls at WXYC for over six hours of radio, starting with the New Music Show from 9-10pm, and then extending my regular show from 10pm-3am. Check out the playlist for this Hostile Gospel extravaganza here.

It's always tough to put on a decent radio programme after being in the middle of the clusterfuck that is Feedback Farm, and I guess last week's show reflected my disorganization. Here's a link to the playlist:
Hostile Gospel: June 20, 2007
At least Feedback Farm was actually good. We're in the midst of a three part series dealing with the life cycle, and last week's episode was dedicated to the miracle of birth. It was definitely one of the better installments of FF, and I've edited out my favorite 10 minute segment for your audio enjoyment:
Feedback Farm: BIRTH - June 20, 2007
Deconstruction of the life cycle will continue in a few weeks, though it's unclear when exactly that will happen, given that next week is the 4th and the Farmers do love their fireworks.

Of course I'm already lagging behind on the updates, so here are the playlists from Hostile Gospel over the past few weeks:

Feedback Farm is gonna kick ass this week. Tune in Wednesday, June 20 @ 9pm, or visit www.wxyc.org/blog for a download of the show. We'll be doing an hour long audio collage of the life cycle, birth to death I believe. It could be broken into installments though, so stay tuned.

After feeling somewhat indifferent to performing on Feedback Farm's excursion into the summer season two weeks ago, I subsequently did one of the better shows I've hosted on the radio in a while. Check out the playlist here.
The show's highlight was a slow-built collage that revolved around an excerpt from Henry Jacobs' The Fine Art of Goofing Off DVD, released by Important records in 2005. The release contained experimental audio/video broadcasted on San Fran public TV station KQED in 1972 as a collaboration between animator Bob McClay, Jacobs, and producer Chris Koch, with contributions from Alan Watts, filmmaker Jordan Belson, and several other. The other sources in the mix with Jacobs include:
-Stephen Vitiello Listening to Donald Judd (Sub Rosa)
-"Banjo" Ikey Robinson and His Bull Fiddle Band How Low Can You Go? (Dust to Digital)
-Jazzkammer/Howard Stelzer Tomorrow No One Will Be Safe (Pacrec/Troniks)
Download the mp3 here. (Excuse the static-infused quality - this will be remedied in the future)
