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.

It's in his blood.
Avatar 4:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'll be not playing Sun Ra in half an hour, oops
Avatar 4:30pm northguineahills:

There' an infinite amount of Sun Ra releases.
Avatar 4:31pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Finding out Sun Ra died before I'd started listening was like finding out the Beatles had broken up, which I guess my parents didn't want to tell me, like the Santa Claus myth.
Avatar 4:31pm david w:

Infinite being the operative word when it comes to Sun Ra.
Avatar 4:33pm david w:

There's a Kenzo mix in that story somewhere.
Avatar 4:40pm northguineahills:

I love Aki!
Avatar 4:49pm northguineahills:

His live shows are awesome, w/ his slide photography projections and his tapes manipulations.
Avatar 4:50pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Really awfully nice
Avatar 4:51pm david w:

I've tried to record Aki in solo shows several times and it is almost impossible to capture for radio, but the live experience is fabulous.
Avatar 4:53pm david w:

Thanks, Ken. I always try to scramble brains as much as possible before you take flight.
Avatar 4:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Mine's going to be a spacious simpler one this week. This is a fine headclearer.
Avatar 4:57pm david w:

And thanks everybody! Enjoyed this...
Avatar 4:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Up next/now on this Drummer stream, an evocatively healing favorite sound collage: "Decisions, Gratification, Escape"

Messages we need, in a calming base (I need). Hypnotic, dreamy, slow, focused, explosive, evocative, healing, evaporating. (I'll be letting go now.) So good!

Come chat here! wfmu.org...
