OVER THE EDGE: WORD RECEPTACLE
This one is all about words, specifically all those that the FCC prohibits, with lots of unembarrassed examples. I thought it might be interesting to use the actual words being endlessly discussed for a change. Some clips from an edition of This American Life provides an excellent discussion of the FCC’s impossible words and especially their unproven effect on kids, while lots of offending material from Lenny Bruce to Eminem is heard as well. This is my unauthorized attempt to relax a little around these words and try to depict how hearing them in the middle of the night is a relatively harmless experience. (June 17, 2004)
Over the Edge (or, OTE) is a sound collage radio program hosted and produced by Don Joyce. Joyce is also a member of the pioneering sound collage band Negativland, members of which frequently make guest appearances on Over the Edge. A series of Over the Edge episodes have been released under the Negativland name. http://www.negativland.com/ote/?p=802
Founded in 1981, OTE is broadcast live on KPFA in Berkeley, California, every second, third, and fourth Thursday morning from 12am to 3am. On the rare occasion of a month with a fifth Thursday OTE runs an additional two hours, from 12am to 5am. The show is also available on-line, streamed live from KPFA.org (where you can also podcast the show), or from the Negativland website, where many older episodes are available as well.
