Lead lively sound-collage-inspired conversations, have profound revelations, spark a revolution, and send love.

Yay! I've never been to Austin.
After this show I expect my tolerence for super hot chilis to be vastly amped up.

Heya Kenzo and all! Sounds like "Lawyers in Love" is poking its way through there.

Lively conversation, profound revelation, revolution, and love? Uh, sorry, I just blundered here after hearing Please Call Stella (accent.gmu.edu). Thought it was Kenny G. I'll show myself out

I have to bail out and go to sleep. I really enjoyed it when Kenny's Stella overlapped with yours. I hope you don't mind my playing another show on top of yours. I just couldn't resist: this was one of my fave Kenny G shows

This era is the one by i was introduced to the show five years ago, choosing one from the archives! it does often bring a speechlessness! Aspects of its depth (in this era and of course others!) provide a lozenge of tremendous truth!

@Revo Well, I varied. I did a number of "cleaner" shows in the same period. This was an unusually long one, and I had just done a long late-night fill-in on a different station the night before, so I got to some bigger build up and letitout.
  11/20/19 6:40pm Kenzo:

Happen again, Carmichael!

I wish I had a playlist for this one. I have all my paper playlists in a folder, but I'm pretty sure I didn't keep one for this one. But I've forgotten to go digging for it. I actually don't quite remember how I kept track in the Austin years.

And this itself samples a show I'd done the night before on KVRX Austin.

Looks like I did the KVRX show Friday night 11:30pm-3am, had a little sleep, and then came in for the KOOP show (same frequency, different station) Saturday 6-8pm. I always like these shows that come later in a close series of long shows.

Two days later I returned a Chomsky book to the library, then went to Florida. A few days earlier was the big Cinematexas party.

I don't really remember this show happening...unusual chaos for that station.
Avatar 4:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I guess this is the live RealAudio stream delay-looping, but I'm surprised there's so little degeneration. I also think I hear the radio behind me, but that's totally live, so it only adds whistle feedback.
Avatar 4:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I keep wishing this were going to come back around to something musical/soothing. I have a hunch it's just going to explode out with more phone noise.
