Avatar Mon. 6/26/17 3:08pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'll be observing a temporary vow of comment silence today.

Please make up for it for me: Lead lively sound-collage-inspired conversations, have profound revelations, spark a revolution, and send love.

Namaste.

Yay! I've never been to Austin.
After this show I expect my tolerence for super hot chilis to be vastly amped up.

Heya Kenzo and all! Sounds like "Lawyers in Love" is poking its way through there.

Lively conversation, profound revelation, revolution, and love? Uh, sorry, I just blundered here after hearing Please Call Stella (accent.gmu.edu). Thought it was Kenny G. I'll show myself out

I grew up in Austin and moved away permanently around '91. If KOOP was around in the 80s I didn't know about it.

I have to bail out and go to sleep. I really enjoyed it when Kenny's Stella overlapped with yours. I hope you don't mind my playing another show on top of yours. I just couldn't resist: this was one of my fave Kenny G shows

This era is the one by i was introduced to the show five years ago, choosing one from the archives! it does often bring a speechlessness! Aspects of its depth (in this era and of course others!) provide a lozenge of tremendous truth!

I wish I had a playlist for this one. I have all my paper playlists in a folder, but I'm pretty sure I didn't keep one for this one. But I've forgotten to go digging for it. I actually don't quite remember how I kept track in the Austin years.

@Revo Well, I varied. I did a number of "cleaner" shows in the same period. This was an unusually long one, and I had just done a long late-night fill-in on a different station the night before, so I got to some bigger build up and letitout.

Happen again, Carmichael!
