Favoriting Mid-Valley Mutations with Austin Rich: Playlist from January 17, 2023 Favoriting

austinrich's avatar View austinrich's profile Favoriting

A combination of collage, new experimental records and other bits and bobs, Mid-Valley Mutations is a tour through the mind of Austin Rich, who has been broadcasting in some form since 1998. Heavily influenced by Dr Demento, Don Joyce and old fashioned College Radio, Austin creates Audio Essays on a variety of subjects, and even just plays records, from time to time. Sometimes Live music and Interviews will grace the program, helping create a situation where you don't really know what you're going to hear, when you tune in. What you need to know is when you enter the Mid-Valley region, be prepared for the Musical Mutations... in whatever form they take.

I don't know if this is weird, but I don't know anything about Monty Python. I first heard a Monty Python related song done by Simon & Garfunkel in the credits to the movie "As Good As It Gets". I would occasionally put on Benny Hill when I was drunk, but I'm not actually a big couch potato.

Thanks Heather! I occasionally watch West Wing, believe it or not, because I am slowly studying screenwriting, and Aaron Sorkin is really something else with dialogue, even though the show is not really my cup of tea. I noticed how odd it was that I would watch something fictional that was not also supernatural. I pretty much need an outside force in the plot to care for it, either that or extremely clever "thriller" situations.
