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.

Happy autumn, fair citizens of Queens!

noise you say? noice!

Hi all.
Avatar 3:06pm Sem:

Hello, David, Ruth, all those OAR folk, and all.

Now strapping on the gravity boots, in aid of listening upside down. A whim come true.

Hi David & Ruth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm doctorjazz:

Hi David! Intriguing title to the show.
  3:10pm heinseng:

Burns HAD to give Wynton a cameo. Close call!
Avatar 3:10pm david w:

Whoa, the whole gang! steveo (step carefully), james (the leaves are falling already), Schell (the wise sage), Sem (floating again?), and djazz (does anybody remember the electric chair?)
Avatar 3:11pm david w:

Ah, heinseng. You know my itch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Webhamster Henry:

I had an electrically assisted Standing Desk - it might as well have been an electric chair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Webhamster Henry:

heh remixing Laurie Anderson.
  3:14pm chresti in car:

Hello Ridgewoods!
Avatar 3:14pm david w:

The stream has had some glitches today so if anybody notices oddness, let me know. I'm recording in parallel as always, so the archive will be spotless.
Avatar 3:14pm geezerette:

Brainwave dance party!
Hello. David, Ruth, and all.
Avatar 3:15pm david w:

chresti and geez! Engaging in contrary motion!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm doctorjazz:

Wouldn't be surprised if the electric chair makes a comeback..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm steveo:

yes please do step carefully, i still have a sneaker tread on my neck from your last program
Avatar 3:32pm david w:

steveo, I would never purposely hurt you, just a rough massage!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Ike:

As I said before: Normally I am not into Ken Burns, but the first ep. of Country Music, "The Rub", should be commended for talking about how much influence African-Americans had on country (despite Kris Kristofferson embarrassing himself by calling it "white soul music" or something like that, a common misconception). They sprinkle in a lot of good Charley Pride interview bits too. And on another note, they also mention the infamous con artist who started a radio station just to push his goat gonad male-enhancement surgery scams which is apropos of not much, but very amusing to me: wfmu.org...
Avatar 3:35pm david w:

Yes, Ike, Understood. And it is pretty strong on contributions by women. Of all people, Dolly Parton brought me to tears!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm steveo:

a massage of the ears, indubitably; digging the branch; i'm a sucker for brass
  3:37pm heinseng:

Yeah, and who'da known Patsy Cline was fierce? Not from her lyrics.
Avatar 3:37pm geezerette:

Blues prayer appreciated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Ike:

Yeah I think I know which scene you mean. That was incredible. Dolly Parton is a kingpin of culture. I love her bluegrass albums but I wonder if she's done any albums of just old-time a cappella and if not, I hope she gets on that!
Avatar 3:43pm david w:

The Nashville vs. Austin drama is also amazing to learn.
Avatar 3:47pm geezerette:

Willie wins.
Never knew he was responsible for Austin City limits. :)
Avatar 3:58pm david w:

Willie and Waylon and Emmylou all shine (or shock) and the ubiquitous talking head this time (Marty Stuart) does not lead us wrong (as others in Burns' pieces have).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Stanley:

Hear, here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Stanley:

And greetings to all
  4:07pm heinseng:

Johnny Cash: the wannabe who won em in Folsom.
Also interesting how not only Gram Parsons and Townes, but also Minnie Pearl were posh.
Avatar 4:07pm david w:

I love it when you agree with me, Stanley. I also love it when you scold me. Greetings!
Avatar 4:08pm david w:

Oh, I forgot Townes. Key!
Avatar 4:13pm geezerette:

Marty Stuart was a revelation. Was unaware of him and inclined to dismiss him merely because of his visual presentation; something I don't often do. Shame on me; phenomenal musician ! A lot of child prodigies in the series.
Avatar 4:15pm david w:

Marty Stuart has earned my respect (perspective!) and his haircut.
Avatar 4:16pm geezerette:

Ha! Exactly! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm steveo:

i was curious about the relative sizes of the clarinets, and I found this photo: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 4:21pm david w:

I'm kind of having an instrument crush on the clarinet these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm steveo:

they're totally tubular! (i have just learned, in contrast to the conical shape of a sax)
Avatar 4:25pm geezerette:

Really digging this piece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Stanley:

Me too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm steveo:

standing ovation

Carl just posted this photo of a vending machine at an LA music school where you can buy chips, guitar strings and drumsticks. www.facebook.com...

Nice one, Dr. Schell.

Hey, Stanley! Steveo!
Thnx for sharing, Schell!

This is some great cartoon, isn't it? Vintage Popeye dancing with high kicks by Clarabell Cow. Love this! We're Stone-d!

What a glorious tumult this is.

After dancing on the ceiling, now down to earth thanking the Ridgewood group for a fine afternoon's listening. See you next time, with luck.
