A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 25 years, weaving mesmerizing new soundscapes from found and collected materials right in the present moment.
Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. (Visit homepage.)

Welcome, fred, fleep, chresti, and Ike!
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 5:31pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I had an edited version without the legal stuff, but I went back to lossless source for today and left all that in place for posterity.
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 5:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Also went to back to lossless source for this one. 99% sure I excised all the underwriting announcements but advance apologies if irrelevant outdated commercial bit sneaks in.

RIP the person I was filling in for 16 years ago
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 5:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Also RIP Don Joyce who sat on a stage playing carts while a disco ball came as Spandau Ballet's This Much is True started playing near the end of a Negativland concert I attended in the early 2000's, and I knew one day I'd loop that on a show.

Hi Ken. When I was in junior high. I had a school notebook with that spinning rainbow design on the front. It did not do a thing to promote good study habits.
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 5:47pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Franco You are getting sleeeeepy
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 5:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Feeling loopy today.
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 5:51pm Franco Twinkie:

Come to think of it, it was a paper text book cover that came in a multi-pak. Covering my school books was the only time I ever opened them.

December 20, 2003 was a Saturday
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 6:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Indeed! I was subbing for a Saturday afternoon show.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:21pm chresti:

sounds like, "look at dat", the phrase for never
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:23pm fred:

A proof of the good taste evident in this show is that I don't think it ever used a Felder loop. The mere thought would send Ike screaming
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:24pm chresti:

haha fred
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 6:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm not following the Felder thing. I've used a lot of ridiculous pop artists, haven't I?
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:29pm Carmichael:

i am indeed listening, although I'm working harder than a one-legged man in a butt kicking contest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:30pm fleep:

The Felder thing is an atrocious song played every single week on Tuesday at 11 am, causing much distress among the delicate eared
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:32pm Carmichael:

And a twisted sadistic grin on the faces of others.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:32pm chresti:

Garbage Time torture segment?
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:34pm chresti:

I've heard about the Felder thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:36pm fleep:

And we all thought W was the worst it could get. Ha ha on us.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:38pm chresti:

The fooled got fooled again.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 6:40pm fred:

@fleep: makes me wonder how worse it will get

The party on the Left,
Is now the party on the Right.
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 6:48pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This show started so simply
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 6:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

A few mins early, the archive is now up, and it's higher quality than what aired today!
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 6:53pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Higher quality than has ever been distributed of these two episodes, in fact.
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 6:54pm northguineahills:

Thanks, Ken!
Avatar Wed. 8/28/19 6:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):
