A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 26 years, weaving mesmerizing new soundscapes from found and collected materials right in the present moment.
Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. (Visit homepage.)

Mondays 3 - 5pm (EDT) (Web-only) | On WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio (Info)

iTunes Feed Also available as an MP3 podcast. More info at our Podcast Central page.

Hello Kenzo, listeners and time-shifters
Avatar 5:01pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

There you were, fred
Avatar 5:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh I love these sounds without the music
Avatar 5:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Lost the original playlist for this one, or it might be in the paper playlists folder in the radio archive box in the mysterious location
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 5:14pm fred:

Speaking of boxes, I got a notice that I had to go the post office to retrieve a package because it "didn't fit in mailbox". I hope it is what I hope it is
Avatar 5:15pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Is it a mailbox? Those never fit in the mailbox.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:16pm geoff mcq:

Evening Fred, Evening Kenzo.
Avatar 5:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Welcome, geoff from Scotland!
Avatar 5:19pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I am glad you found here
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:20pm geoff mcq:

I am glad to be here for this live/unlive thing.
Avatar 5:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Live phone caller
Avatar 5:24pm northguineahills:

Happy day for fred! (my postal personnel just leave it at the door) Me and my neighbors never have any problem w/ theft. Heck, half the time I forget to lock my door.
Avatar 5:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My door doesn't usually fit in my door
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:29pm geoff mcq:

I'm hoping my happy day may be tomorrow. I got an email today saying my marathon swag had made as far as Coventry. I think it's coming by glacier.
Avatar 5:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Glaciers never fit into glaciers even if they both melt together
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 5:33pm fred:

I use doors as tables, propping them on books. I quickly stopped putting them back in place. So I have tables with handles
Avatar 5:35pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Books as doors, tables as handles
Avatar 5:35pm northguineahills:

@geoff: Then you may be waiting a long time, w/ climate change, etc...

/I got mine a month ago, but I'm stateside.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 5:36pm fred:

@geoff: the good (and bad) news is that glaciers move faster and faster these days. But maybe not from Coventry to where you are
Avatar 5:37pm northguineahills:

I read an article about the (very) few glaciers that are expanding. It's depressing that it was all summed up in on 3 page academic article.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:39pm geoff mcq:

The last time I drove up the M6 it was pretty glacier-free.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 5:39pm fred:

@ngh: mine got delayed a little because one of my prize warehouse picks was no longer available. Which was great because I could pick Mayuko's water bottle instead
Avatar 5:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Mine melted before it reached me
Avatar 5:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Fuck I love this show. I need to go loopy but words free more often.
Avatar 5:41pm northguineahills:

@fred: I got Mayuko's poster. Can't wait to frame it!
Avatar 5:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My calendar says I received an important package the day after this show
Avatar 5:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh and I had a broken foot, not yet diagnosed
Avatar 5:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh and I completed the radio station revolution 6 days after this show. No wonder I was too distracted to keep a playlist or use words.
Avatar 5:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

If I hadn't've broken my foot, I wouldn't have finished the revolution.
Avatar 5:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Rare that a show got named during the show
Avatar 5:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(Wednesdays 5-7pm ET on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio, and loosely alternating Mondays 2-4pm ET on WTJU. All at lastever.org )
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 6:01pm fred:

Kronos, of course a good fit for this show
Avatar 6:01pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Now, Inside of the Ending, long after the revolution had settled in, and time for me to get going with a restored foot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Carmichael:

Heya Kenzo and Cousin Kevin.
Avatar 6:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi Carmichael! My second-half friend.
Avatar 6:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(We're on our own...cousin...)
Avatar 6:07pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The day after this show, I was supposed to get the cat neutered, but couldn't bring myself to do it
Avatar 6:08pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Ooh Return to Oz
Avatar 6:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(music by David Shire, designed to sound authentically like Dorothy would've been hearing at the time)
Avatar 6:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Great extensive interview with him about the whole soundtrack in some cinema magazine from the mid 80's

Tommy loop + live phone caller
Avatar 6:35pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

One of my favorite live caller sing-alongs. Oh, and there's The Guy!
