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.

Hi David and ruth! I love Amon Tobin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm david w:

Hi, chresti! Tobin has a touch of magic.
  5:11pm ruth:

Hi chresti.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Doug Schulkind:

I miss Peter Kowald muchly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm david w:

Hi, Doug and yeah, lost too soon.
  5:20pm ruth:

Yeah he was only in his 50's young when he died I think. It's crossed my mind a few times regarding people who died soon before the pandemic like John Giorno, Steve Dalechinsky and Kowald that maybe they were lucky to get outta Dodge before this BIG SHIT hit the fan. Not that we're not lucky to be alive I'd certainly rather be on this side of the great divide but the question keeps popping into my mind when I'm overcome with the suffering and horror of the Trumpian Deathstar we find ourselves stranded on...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm chresti:

Let's hope all are rescued from the T Deathstar before it self-destructs.
  5:38pm northguineahills:

I saw Peter Kowald a day before he died. He once did a show w/ Toshio Kajiwara (trntblst), and I couldn’t tell who was making what sounds I had Peter’s memorial concert post concert framed in my Brooklyn apt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm david w:

whoa, ngh. lovely and sad too.
  5:41pm Dean:

I chatted once with Brötzmann at Vision Festival over a beer. The Full Blast show in Berkeley a few years later remains among one of the top three or four shows I've ever attended.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm david w:

I find Brotzmann gentle and kind these days. Years back he was a judgmental crank. Maybe it was me?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm david w:

And welcome, Dean!
  5:50pm northguineahills:

Kowald was one of the most amazing humans I hung out w/. I was just some dumb young kid and he still sat down and had a beer w/ me and chatted.
  5:52pm Dean:

Kowald's reputation for being a terrific person preceded him, for sure. That's cool that you got to meet him, particularly at that point in time, ngh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm chresti:

I've known judgmental cranks that mellowed out as they aged, maybe hormones have something to do with it?
  5:58pm northguineahills:

Peter Brotzan, someone who literally busted a lung while blaring his sax. ...
  5:58pm northguineahills:

  6:03pm Dean:

I, for one, chresti, am evolving in the opposite direction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm david w:

Making peace with your circumstances is very healthy, though these days a little rage is recommended.

Rick Brown percussion, a man who knows his way around a wooden box like no other.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm david w:

Most folks likely know, but Rick Brown sits on a plywood box and plays it with hands, mallets, pedals...
