The Amuhr-cans IIV...

Yes, I know the header is deeply flawed... BUT SO IS THIS CULTURE AND TONIGHT'S playlist as well.....! (...ah-herm...) Funny I've never noticed this before  but grouping the artists as I am into categories, hidden patterns are emerging... What I've learned the least few weeks is that many of the acts on the list from the USofA are really noisy .. From concrete, to free jazz to ambient electronica minimalist to sound collage... And tonight's a great example. In fact, since two of the TITANS of minimalist modern composing, Terry Riley and Steve Reich are on tonight's playlist, I've decided to combine two of their  more melodic and pleasant pieces together into a single, screeching atonal cacophony. BTW, I'm still 10-midnight...the change didn't happen,,,,,,,,

1. Residents ~ Kraft Cheese (1978) {Buster and Glen}
2. Pere Ubu ~ A Day Such as This (1982) {Song Of The Bailing Man}
3. Red Krayola ~ Pink Stainless Tail (1967) {The Parable Of Arable Land}
4. Negativland ~ Escape from Noise (1987) {Escape from Noise}

Later Broadcast...

It appears my radio station has decided to shoot a promotional video in the main studio tonight that includes having a dog (yes, a literal dog) at the console... So my show tonight will be 12 to 2 AM and actually per kismet  starting next week , I'm going back to that slot anyway...
