Ridgewood Radio features concert recordings by adventurous bands and experimental musicians and restored archival tapes from private and institutional collections captured at venues large and small across the five boroughs of New York. It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the Ridgewood section of Queens, NY, 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.

what a great album

Played the grooves off this album. Could not get enough.
Hello, David, Ruth, the OAR braintrust, and all.
I'll now climb aboard this waterbed and float through the rest of the show.

MLITBOG goes well with Negativland's Christianity Is Stupid.

Welcome coel and Sem... I thought that Eno/Byrne was appropriate for today for several reasons... and now, float along because this coupla hours will transport. Enjoy!

Oo, sounds nice. Fanfare formality, like the Purcells last week.

Lea is playing in a former bunch of grain silos here.

Henry and the heinsengs, perceptive as always. Hello!

I've wandered in for a while.
Hi David

Good day for wandering, Stanley, glad to have you along.

Bertucci and Ilgenfritz in concert playing with the backing tracks recorded at the silos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 3:26pm coelacanth∅:

you've played the silo recordings by themselves before,no?
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 3:26pm david w:

Yes, when Lea was here as a guest in July.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 3:28pm coelacanth∅:

ah. one of my favorite episodes
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 3:29pm david w:

Thanks, coel. Do you like me to have live guests? Ruth wants me to do it more often. I'm reluctant to add too much chat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 3:33pm coelacanth∅:

i like the mix, myself. i think your ratio is good.
Lea was perfectly charming, and i love her music and the music she selected, as i remember. you've had others that stand out too but if you had guests every week i think it'd get tedious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 3:34pm coelacanth∅:

i'm really not the one to ask though! one reason being that, as i should be right now, i'm usually working during this time and catch easily less than 1/2 your shows, unfortunately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 3:36pm Webhamster Henry:

I like live guests, but also just having them hang out on the chatboard (like Peter Zummo) is good! It's like AOL chat rooms of the 90s.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 3:37pm david w:

Understood, coel. I generally invite people when I think both their history and their current projects would satisfy and inspire us all.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 3:39pm david w:

Agreed, Henry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 3:42pm Webhamster Henry:

I like Lea's sonic explorations, she has a good ear!
Speaking of listening, I'm actually chatting with Ione today (Pauline Oliveros' partner).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 3:42pm coelacanth∅:

haha...although i haven't gotten bored of Dave Sewelson's show yet, and he has guests every week. occasionally they don't grab me -but that's just me. they probably grab somebody else.
...but now that i consider it, Dave doing maybe 1 show/month of just his musical selections would be very enjoyable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 3:44pm coelacanth∅:

(and, again -i don't catch all of his shows; so not the best gauge)
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 3:46pm david w:

Sewelson is so charming I could listen to him always, and he does live in studio sets too. The chat is almost also a series of riffs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 3:47pm coelacanth∅:

all true!
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 3:47pm david w:

Henry send regards to Ione who has been very kind to me and this program (Pauline is on our premium disk this year).
