Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. (Visit homepage.)

@Franco This is my Anthology 3
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 5:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I had to do those sign-off announcements in the midst of the end instead of afterwards because there was no way to know when the automatic switch would flip us over from KOOP to KVRX (inaccurate clock). I'd keep radio on behind me to find out if we'd gone off the air (over to the other station instead) and were now only sending to the internet and my one-day-replay-on-WFMU's-GTDR recording.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 5:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(does it drop-out/rebuffer at all for anyone?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/19 5:39pm Doug Schulkind:

I am listening. Deliberately.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 5:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Significant!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 5:40pm Franco Twinkie:

The juxtaposition of Alan Watts with of some with these other gas bags is disturbing and funny.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 5:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Or with himself
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 5:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Its unfoldment.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 5:44pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh yes! That is why Alan Watts is so compelling after all these years. The duality, or load of malarkey, depending on your own state of mind at the time.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 5:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

What's the opposite of a phoenix?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/19 6:02pm Doug Schulkind:

An Icarus?
  Wed. 9/18/19 6:05pm CC:

why is it that we always get to hear Alan Watts and we never get to hear Rd Laing???
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@CC Seeking non-deterministic answer to your query
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:11pm Franco Twinkie:

Maybe RD Laing wasn't as self possessed as Mr. Watts. It takes a lot of self regard to do such a thorough job of self preservation for the ages.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Year-End Fundraiser 2019 Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 6:19pm fred:

Nice! A show that is a set of earlier shows, one of which includes clips from ever earlier ones. Are you preparing for a fractal show?
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Did he give speeches?
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@fred You hadn't yet encountered one of these? They used to happen ~every 4-8 shows. The point being the entire thing is an interrelational fractal. Perhaps unconsciously inspired by childhood viewings of Monty Python's Flying Circus, episodes which seemed to reference some that hadn't happened yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/19 6:26pm Doug Schulkind:

And how come we don't get to hear kd lang?
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Keep those questions coming!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/19 6:30pm Carmichael:

Or Bob Lange from the Dating Game?

Speaking of childhood shows, that pic is from the Prisoner, right?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/19 6:37pm Carmichael:

How's it goin', eh?
  Wed. 9/18/19 6:39pm Ike:

Aren’t episodes referencing future episodes just episodes that are aired out of correct order?
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Ike Ask me a question about time.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:44pm Ian!:

About time they asked you a question.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oops my little joke isn't visible to you, Ike, on the phone app. Check webpage sometime. wfmu.org...
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Does it ever skip/drop-out for anyone?
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 6:48pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):
