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.

Everybody, I'm sure your sanity is challenged, but hope your bodies are winning.

sanity? what's that?
Hello david, Ruth and all listening
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm listener james from westwood:

So far, accurate assessment! Though the challenge on the former will be eased by this show!

Lately, wearing a handgurdjieff over my mouth has led to some remarkable meetings. Think I'll keep wearing it. Hello, David, Ruth, the OAR outbreak, and the Ridgewood posse.

We listening to Shorter:s Emanon earlier today, side 1, interesting/cool recording.

It was me I forgot to type mt name in who knew you could post as " ?". Mysterious may need to keep one for later!
  3:17pm JakeGould:

Hey David! Passed by Roulette on Atlantic Avenue. Used to live near there about 7 years ago. The neighborhood hyper gentrified within a year of me leaving and was somewhat dead because of it back then. But now in the middle of all of this, it’s even deader than dead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Stanley:

Keeping tuned to the stream.
Hi david, ruth and experimenters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Stanley:

This is an excellent excerpt.
Avatar 3:18pm david w:

Hey, Jake. Altantic Ave has not been healthy since the recession, and now likely hopelessly lost.
Avatar 3:19pm david w:

Stanley! Bask away...
  3:20pm JakeGould:

@DavidW: Well, Atlantic Avenue became alien to me when $400 (by 2013 prices) mini skirts were being sold by some boutiques. But anyway… I hope Roulette still has a home there; the rest of that strip is dead to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm doctorjazz:

Went to Roulette not too long before the shut down, Nels Cline had an interesting group/performance there. I lived in Park Slope until the mid 90s, talk about the shock of neighborhood change.
  3:23pm JakeGould:

@doctorjazz: When I lived in Park Slope in the early 1990s, walking down Atlantic Avenue near Nevins was scary. Still filled with cool furniture shops and real junk stores.

Checking in with the in crowd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm doctorjazz:

This Sadja piece is cool!
Avatar 3:23pm david w:

The Barclays Center tipped the scale, just two blocks from Roulette. It was getting weird. Now, hmm. Nels is cool.
Avatar 3:24pm david w:

Jeff G! (Knows the scene)
Avatar 3:25pm david w:

Sadja was supposed to be here in May for a show. Not.
Avatar 3:26pm fred:

Things are not looking good over here: small shops are failing, banks are gobbling up the locations, just to put in placeholder real estate agencies until they have enough to build more soulless buildings
  3:26pm JakeGould:

Yeah, there used to be a Walgreens and a 24 hour laundromat near me. Now they are both glass towers with empty retail on the first floor.
Avatar 3:28pm david w:

fred, Jake... seeing just those things here all around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm doctorjazz:

@JakeGould-yup, as was most of 5th Avenue. Lived on Carroll St bet 5th and 6th avenues(just off 5th, had a crack house next door early on), wife was always afraid if she had to come down 5th Avenue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Jeff Golick:

@doc, I think we were neighbors. I was on President St. between 5th & 6th, from '97-2018.
Avatar 3:32pm david w:

This Eilbacher show produced by Che Chen. Thanks, Che!
  3:33pm Che Chen:

I think this was the Fire Over Heaven with Max and Bruce McClure? have to check my records...
  3:33pm JakeGould:

@doctorjazz: Yup! My mom used to work in a sweat shop on Carroll Street near the Gowanus in the 1980s. She’s passed away but I still have the sharpened screwdriver and buck knife she carried each day going to work.

FWIW, I used to live on Union Street between 7th and 8th. Just before the “lawyers” as my Italian landlady started to move into the neighborhood moved in. My rent was cheap even for back then. Like another planet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm doctorjazz:

@Jeff, you were in my old haunts, but we had skipped it 3 to the swamps of Jersey by 95. We were trying for child #2, and having 1, and a neurotic dog, in a small, narrow 3rd floor walk up was difficult.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Jeff Golick:

My Italian landlady moved into the President St. building in 1939. She thought it was old, at the time.
Avatar 3:36pm fred:

The Fire Over Heaven concerts always sound so great. Not that I'll ever be able to attend
  3:37pm Che Chen:

@Fred - Thanks! Fortunately, David records them all.
  3:37pm Che Chen:

Archives are coming in handy, these days...
Avatar 3:37pm david w:

Thanks, Fred. Che and I and the engineers try to get good recordings. Music is always great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Jeff Golick:

Well, @doc, you overlapped with my wife, a bit. She was in the apt from '94.

Speaking of the old 'hood, saw 75 Dollar Bill at Barbes several years back, and it was tremendously great. So, belated thanks for that, Che Chen!
  3:39pm Che Chen:

Ah, yes, we played at Barbes with some frequency for a couple of years. Thanks for making the scene!
  3:40pm Che Chen:

very much missing playing with and for people right now.
  3:41pm ruth:

WE MISS you too Che!
Avatar 3:41pm fred:

I did get to see 75 dollar bill in Paris. I would have missed it, but I had spent enough time saying I would love to see you that someone told me about it in time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm doctorjazz:

Shlepped into Barbed from Joisey often as I could, like that space.
  3:42pm JakeGould:

@JeffGolick: Ha! I had friends who lived on President Street between 5th and 4th who did a gut rehab of their place and found a vintage silver gun and some Italian newspaper clippings in the wall.

Which I means I have nothing to do with nothing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm doctorjazz:

Will have to catch 75 Dollar Bill of/when wee can go see shows again.
  3:43pm Che Chen:

@Ruth Missing the Fire Over Heaven gang especially, but things like this really help!
Avatar 3:43pm david w:

To be self serving... Che organized, played on, and mixed the Ridgewood Radio premium CD this marathon.
  3:44pm ruth:

Wow this is s so amazing international fandom. HOpe everybody has heard the most recent 75dollar bill record " I was Real". I can't get through a week without listening to it all the way through.
  3:44pm Che Chen:

@Fred was it the show in Paris with Danny Oxenberg?
  3:46pm Che Chen:

aw, thanks, Ruth! since we are listening to Max, I have to plug new horse lords too. it's sort of unfair that he can make such incredibly detailed and lush computer music and plays bass in one of the greatest bands working right now. new record is full of impossible polyrhythms and i'm a polyrhythm guy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Jeff Golick:

Big ups to I WAS REAL; new Horse Lords; and the Ridgewood Radio premium CD!
Avatar 3:48pm fred:

@Che: Yes, in 2016
  3:49pm Che Chen:

@Fred that was a nice show. incidentally, Max and the other horse lords were there that night too. huddled in the front row.
  3:50pm ruth:

I miss going to President Street too. So many blue hydrangea backyard afternoons . When Doug used to live there and the olive bread was cheap and the yards all had madonnas.
  3:51pm ruth:

Uh huh uh huh! Horse Lords on my lifelist for sure!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm chresti:

I like the poly-rhythms.
  3:53pm ruth:

Me too chresti!
Avatar 3:53pm fred:

I only saw Horse Lords once. A last minute show (empty date in a tour) in the basement of a bar. It was great. I still wonder why they or 75 dollar bill never played at Instants Chavirés
  3:55pm Che Chen:

@fred we just played at Instants in December, opening for the Ex. fantastic show. great to get to hang out with the Ex crew too. incredibly sweet people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm chresti:

Also like the poly-spinning GIF on the playlist page...

Hiya ruth!
  3:56pm ruth:

I know. David's on a roll!
Avatar 4:01pm david w:

Thanks, chresti. It sucked me in (too much quarantine pot?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Doug Schulkind:

I lived next to a crack house in Brooklyn, too! But it was a different crack house, and it was kitty-corner across the intersection, not literally next door, so what the hell do I have to complain about?!
Avatar 4:02pm fred:

Oh yeah, I was at a dance show that day. The Ex are great people, and longtime friends of that venue. They played many times there, and I know that they once insisted that everyone including the supporting bands should be paid the exact same. The most money a friend ever made from a gig
Avatar 4:03pm david w:

I must visit Instants Chavirés someday.
  4:04pm ruth:

  4:09pm Che Chen:

@fred it was the Ex 40th anniversary tour! and i think the last show of their tour. so it had a special energy. Instants was great. my first time there. hope we can be back there again before too long. We have plans to be in France again in September but like al plans, they have been rendered somewhat tentative ...
Avatar 4:09pm Sem:

...and the olive bread was cheap and the yards all had madonnas....

Salient details. Consider them stolen and filed. Thx, ruth.
  4:10pm Che Chen:

@ruth i wanna hear Tutu with these guys!
Avatar 4:12pm david w:

Ruth the ornithological orator!
  4:13pm ruth:

Sadly he goes to bad at dark so he doesn't get to a lot of shows!
  4:14pm Che Chen:

yet another argument for the afternoon show :)
  4:15pm ruth:

Anybody old enough to remember the Sunday afternoon hardcore at CB's
  4:19pm Che Chen:

i went to free jazz sundays at CBGB in the early 00s, but i'm guessing you mean earlier.
Avatar 4:19pm fred:

Correction: I wasn't at a dance show that day (which is usually why I'm not at a show there). The transit strike was on, and the show sold out quick. I can usually get in sold out shows there (perk of being there when there are a handful of people), but I don't like to use that privilege and would have had to walk 8+ miles each way
Avatar 4:22pm david w:

Club owner Hilly Crystal let some pretty untested and unwashed characters on the stage those days at CBGB. Hooray for those days.
Avatar 4:28pm fred:

Venues reopening in September looks like the best case option here. May happen, maybe not. Next year should be the 30th anniversary of Instants Chavirés. People who (usually) work there are busy going through years of archives to maybe put together a compilation. What form that will take is up in the air (hard to fit even a narrow selection on a CD)
  4:28pm ruth:

Me and a partner had a business shooting video of bands starting in the late 80s. most people were using super 8 if anything and super 8 film only has like 3 minute reels. So when VHS came out and the sound was really good on that big tape and you could tape the whole show... A wonder I'm not totally deaf!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm doctorjazz:

This Workman set is nice!
@Doug-the crack house was literally next door...it was always a joy having our toddler discover a used syringe/needle on the sidewalk (of course, eventually it was "emptied", renovated, and became coops).
  4:30pm Che Chen:

ah yes, the transit strike gave us some trouble too!
Ruth, i bet you saw some great things.

and yeah, this Workman set is starting to cook!
  4:31pm ruth:

@drJ but the plastic caps on the crack vials were so colorful!
  4:33pm ruth:

David wow! loved that one! need to stop typing and listen I'm a monotasker
  4:35pm Che Chen:

quite an eye for detail, Ruth.

this is gorgeous now.
  4:36pm Che Chen:

sadly i missed Pheeroan Aklaff's recent solo concert at Issue.

All altos...the press release for this concert...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Stanley:

That's mad.
Avatar 4:43pm fred:

This is great, but bittersweet too. The idea that I won't be able to go to a live show for at least five more months is just starting to sink in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm doctorjazz:

I hope in 5 months things like that will be up and running...
Avatar 4:45pm david w:

How are people feeling about the streaming concerts and Zoom shows?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm doctorjazz:

Sounds like some of those WSQ harmonies in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Jeff Golick:

I've enjoyed a couple of streaming concerts put together by ESS in Chicago, and Corbett vs Dempsey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Jeff Golick:

Strangely intimate, seeing into people's homes as they play. Zeena Parkins' dog hung out behind her for a while during her performance.
Avatar 4:49pm david w:

ESS is cool and trying hard. Lots of people are asking me to help them with this kind of streaming event, but I mostly find them awful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm doctorjazz:

Haven't caught many...oddly, in these days with no schedule, I seem to not be around when they happen. My wife's cousin is a pianist (plays with Tom Chapin), he's streaming Thursday nights (used to be his gig night), caught him last week, pop/requests stuff.
Avatar 4:53pm Sem:

Glad we've had this time together. Hope to see one and all again next time. Be well.
Avatar 4:53pm fred:

I listened to a few, but by friends, and what I liked best was hearing their voice once in a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm doctorjazz:

But I do find the solo player I their living room set up odd.

Coffee break over. Nice to hear nearly one whole tune and see what all ya'll chatting about. Laters.
Avatar 4:57pm fred:

Maybe Instants Chavirés should turn their archives into a radio show. I'm sure decades of show archives could make for amazing radio. Dunno where I got that idea
Thanks David, as always
