A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 28 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. [On hiatus.} (Visit homepage.)

Doug Schulkind:

Listening to Ken's Last Ever is as close as we're going to get to hearing radio approaching the early days of WFMU's finest experimentation. Live improvised collage sounds unusual and alien in contrast of the rest of the radio we are exposed to. But this sort of live-action boundary-pushing/genre liquidation isn't new. It harkens to a tradition that old WFMU had been known for. We are fortunate to have this show in our midst. And our ears.
