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.

Greetings ike!
  2:14pm David W:

The Dewans are serious musicians but not without humor. They describe the instruments as "hazards" but also "ideal for home, church, school. or the laboratory."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm listener james from westwood:

Looking at the Dewanatron website. Such beautiful instruments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Ike:

Isn't the PS1 Warm-Up series mostly dancier stuff, or am I mistaken? I wonder if this audience was bored with these lovely but relatively quiet and modest sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Doug Schulkind:

@Weinstein & ruth
Your playlist isn't Live! If you don't make it live, the artist/song info won't be fed to iTunes, the WFMU app and homepage!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks for playing a little Dewanatron ! Brian is the other experimental autoharpist here in the Hudson Valley.
  2:40pm David W:

Sorry Doug. Fixed it.
  2:42pm David W:

We have an experimental autoharpist here at Outpost!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm weinstein & ruth:

Hamster so you're an experimental autoharpist too? Do tell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm fred:

It's the first time I listen to this show, certainly not the last. Though I'm not often home at this hour
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Doug Schulkind:

I think "experimental autoharpist" is my new favorie two-word phrase in the English language.

Greetings, fred!
  3:11pm David W:

News Flash: It seems to be confirmed that Ruth and I will do an all African hour (or two) on June 28 at 6 filling in for Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm listener james from westwood:

I like the sound of that upcoming hour, David!
  3:16pm David W:

Yeah me too. Ruth's amazing music collection is going to make her a (reluctant) radio star.

Hey Mr. W: Check out this web page for the 1995 internet autoharp:
The autoharp tuning page:
and PolyHarp, my upcoming extended autoharp app:
  3:41pm David W:

A harp on your tablet! I love it!
  3:43pm David W:

I had no idea this had advanced so far. And I am always interested in tuning schemes. Goes back to my Harry Partch infatuation from early 70s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm fred:

Great show! I'll try to tune in often, and hopefully see some of these people live
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks a bunch, folks!! Enjoyed the don't-call-them-synths show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Webhamster Henry:

It's only advanced for me! There are other Autoharp and chord-orient apps out there, but I wouldn't say a lot of them want to simulate strumming damped strings or purposefully making them out of tune. Or in tune, but in some whacked out system. See ya next week! Great show!

oh gee thans for the autoharp resources...
