weinstein's avatar View weinstein's profile Options

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.

Afternoon, David and Ruth and all!

Hi David.
I missed the Mouse Boys but I'm here now.
Avatar 3:11pm weinstein:

Geez, James, Stanley... hello! Just catching my breath here. I'm all alone pushing the buttons today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Stanley:

Back in my day, lad, we didn't have buttons. T'was all levers then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Scraps:

Levers? We only had cords!
Avatar 3:14pm weinstein:

Well, my first synthesizer was gas-powered!
Avatar 3:16pm northguineahills:

My first synth was powered by donkeys turning a power wheel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Scraps:

Cords, I tell you! And when one of us figured out how to tie knots in ‘em, that was heaven!
Avatar 3:17pm weinstein:

Now patch cords are having a revival yes? And everyone has to learn cord etiquette.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Scraps:

Oh man, patch cords with a massive Buchcla (spelling awful!)
Avatar 3:22pm weinstein:

I learned on a Buchla. No keyboard, 16-step sequencer, and lots of fab modules (and cables). Thing was size of two refrigerators.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm steveo:

Avatar 4:09pm geezerette:

David, my nervous system said to thank you. :)
Avatar 4:11pm weinstein:

You all make me laugh, which I greatly appreciate. No one ever visits me in the studio but today... a parade!
  4:13pm Gary:

I just realized I can listen in on my loooong commute home
Avatar 4:15pm weinstein:

Gary what was the trick? On your phone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm doctorjazz:

Phone app is great! Use it often (gets me away from NPR and depressing news).
  4:18pm Gary:

Yes, phone — a new one, so the battery won’t die
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm steveo:

but if it starts to look like that engraving, let me know and I can be there in under an hour....
Avatar 4:35pm geezerette:

My favorite visual art looks the way this sounds.
Avatar 4:37pm weinstein:

That's interesting. Che Chen and Aki both do visual work as well. You might take a peek.
Avatar 4:37pm geezerette:

...the sound of one brain, painting.
Avatar 4:44pm northguineahills:

Wagner's Ring Cycle wasn't playing when the Ring Theater fire erupted, did it?
Avatar 4:52pm weinstein:

@ngh: I hope it was but I don't know!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm steveo:

On December 8, 1881, a fire broke out shortly before a performance of Les contes d'Hoffmann, and 449 people were killed.
