Ridgewood Radio features live sets by adventurous bands and experimental musicians, recorded at clubs and galleries running along the L-train corridor through Brooklyn and Queens from Williamsburg to the Rockaways. It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the blossoming Ridgewood neighborhood, where you'll find more yellow bricks than on the road to Oz and the cemetery of your choice is never more than a few blocks from home.

s'okay I stole it too

Enjoying Zeke Healy; Tipper Gore says she's okay with him, too.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 3:24pm david w:

Yeah but she didn't see the album cover art

beard too unkempt?
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 3:34pm david w:

A good laugh there, steveo (had to run a quick errand so slow on the uptake)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 3:35pm steveo:

ok whew :)

Delta comes to Queens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 3:41pm northguineahills:

We have Henry Flynt and Eugene Chadbourne amongst many others to thank for pioneering that field....
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 3:42pm david w:

Can I get an amen!

Hell yes!

Amelia Island is in Nassau County (a good 15mils/25km from Jax city limits), the county north of Duval (Jax), the most NE county in FL. I've spent many a fine time there. The northern portion has a rural/small town feel, which seems miles away from the suburban hell that is the Jacksonville metropolis.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 3:54pm david w:

I'm sending Ruth there. She's had three vacations canceled or interrupted in the last year, and she only wanted one!
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 3:55pm geezerette:

Beautiful. (Anna RG)
Howdy, David, Ruth, and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 3:56pm steveo:

heading to Tennessee this weekend; i wonder if there's any live music in my dad's tiny town
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 3:57pm northguineahills:

Thanks for sharing these David. I've found decent improv/experimental/noise artists touring down here, but avant americana is hard to find.... (I'd have told my wife to hit this one if I knew of it advance).
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 3:57pm david w:

Hey gzette! Agreed. Anna RG blew my mind, but the whole evening of 21 Dec knocked me over.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:00pm david w:

@steveo, tell us what you find. there has to be some local action right? when you are in the middle of it, even the bad local bar band can be a revelation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 4:01pm steveo:

yeah, checking in with my with-it aunt; there is at least one small music bar in town...
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:02pm david w:

@ngh: is avant americana a thing? stretching these styles is not unusual tho there is always that limit that makes the orthodox cringe. i so love crossing that limit...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 4:03pm northguineahills:

When Ruth goes there, tell here to also go the Cumberland Island National Seashore, the next barrier island north of Amelia in Georgia. It used to be a Carnegie vacation plantation but the mansion burned down in the 50s and they donated to the national park service. So, it's all abandoned, there are wild horses, and the ruins of the Carnegie mansion and older buildings still dot the island. Plus, I believe they only allow 75 people on the island per day, and you can only make it by ferry. It's a favorite nature haunt of mine.

her brother was a great old time banjo player, but alas, he's no longer with us
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 4:05pm northguineahills:

@david: I believe henry flynt and in some examples, jim o'rourke have demonstrated that it does. Others may bristle at the label.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:07pm david w:

Thanks! I'm putting the NGH travelogue in my great tips folder to be acted upon without prejudice.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:08pm david w:

Why did Henry Flynt cancel his gig at Experimental Intermedia last month? Anybody know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 4:09pm northguineahills:

(the rooom mate I moved to NYC w/ grew up on Amelia Island).
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:14pm geezerette:

Caught the word Cumberland and remembered there's an American Music Festival there in Summer. Would love to go there; old style mostly but experimenters might show up, don't know.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:22pm geezerette:

With a very small tweek, this sounds like Don Van Vliet!
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:25pm david w:

Maybe he'll move into a trailer and start a band!
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:27pm geezerette:

Makes me realize Van Vlliet must have had a vast knowledge of both the Harry Smith and Lomax collections.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:28pm geezerette:

...Hope that trailer will be an Airstream. :)
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:33pm david w:

Authenticity. Just saying'...

I haven't been ignoring you, I've been listening! Interesting sets you have here! Also: Nice 'n fresh performances.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:34pm geezerette:

Of course, this is also a little like buying wine for a freeway underpass camper and hanging out with him for a couple of hours.
Not making a joke. I listened to a number of them outside of my studio for years. Not for hours though, just minutes, usually.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:36pm david w:

I hear that. It can mean a lot. On both sides.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:38pm geezerette:

Exactly. Learned a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 4:43pm steveo:

this is lovely; thanks for the show today
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 4:43pm doctorjazz:

Sounds like he's referencing Albert Ayler.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:44pm david w:

Albert Ayler yes. And then off into Ribot world...
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:45pm david w:

When stereo steveo is happy, I am happy!

Thanks so much for these wonderful sets.

Kenzo, roll up your cuffs.
Avatar Wed. 1/10/18 4:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This week: Brand new collage!

Exploring music of my childhood, my father's favorite symphony, recent dance hits, inspirational word bits, and trying to read relevant nutritional lists without losing my composure... With dozens of sound sources blended during the performance through a continuously active improvisational layering process I've apparently cultivated into my core over the last 23.9 years... It's all an experiment in absurdity-beauty.

Come on over and say something new! wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 4:59pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Ridgewoodians!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/10/18 5:00pm Stanley:
