I disagree that it lacks originality, and I could write 10,000 words right now explaining why.

Expectations of self. Can they ever be fully realized?

Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 2:26pm Rich in Washington:

one of the beautiful/tragic things about improvised artforms is that it can come out completely transcendent or completely fall apart, or anywhere in between. And what might seem like a failure to one person on the receiving end can be sublime to another.
Expectations can be one of the worst things to bring into a performance.
That and a goddamn cell phone.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 2:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- the Program is @ once multi-media, mashup/collage, & FreeForm & 'intereactive'
- but also has elements of Minimalism ;
- a theme or intent seems to be in John Cage territory of making it about Audition - in literal etymological sense of being about the Listening - of *how* listening is happening
- which is about self-examination to some extent
- which is of course challenging.
- This is counter to what most of Entertainment is usually about (& of course the Commercial element is usually in play - Time is Money too...) : Do *anything* - but don't leave leave our attention alone w/ just ourselves...

the inner child sees all radio as fascinating and deeply communicative! I will always listen at another time, any possible time! for some, myself included, who are busy/not always connected, this is their one and only radio show!!
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 2:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- no - don't Change it! This Program has to be now - Now - NOW!

charlottesville listener emails from 11 minutes ago:

"The 2-4pm Wed slot is being trashed and debased by this sophomoric narcissistic jerk whose audio-art abilities are pathetic, trite, cliched, and either sonicly clumsy and jarring, or quietly stupid and puling.

PS - get Dominic back; he is one of the finest rock dj's anywhere"

sadly, dominic's not coming back. but he does enjoy the heck out of ken's last ever.

"and while i appreciate the support and calls for my return, i honestly believe ken takes radio art to a much higher plane that i ever could."

pacific standard simon!! that must have been wonderful... i was at a garden yesterday early morning with fog , rabbits, and squirrels.

...to reminisce with my old friends...
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 2:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Bliss: That is great poetry
- also: When first getting into Runes (Norse divination), I just wrote them on card-paper & cut them out (rather than having actual 3D stones or such-like).
- A result was that when you Threw them - they would sometimes stand up straight or make little tent-like formations when they landed.
- Since Runes have different meanings if Inverted (or, I reasoned, just on their Sides) - this gave interesting Meanings of Runes in formation ~ realtion to each other (Runes are also Letters)...

Ah, the open-mindedness of college radio!
Briefly involved with my local college radio station. I shoulda took up sniffing glue instead. Really infuriating, closed-minded people.

If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang, I rather drive a truck

He's a Narcissist (too self-involved). Who wants *you* to call & be the Program.
