Pure Vinyl

June 14, 2001
Solo



A show all about how when a functional technology becomes obsolete, it can then start becoming art. Beginning with a little history of the phonograph and how to unpack your turntable, we scratch through the old world of hi-fi, stereo, and the platters it came on, mixed with many remixed examples of how this surface-bound “sound writing” has entered into the digital age in the form of cut-up nostalgia. We hear from the History of Rock & Roll with Jumpin’ Jack Jackson, Eldorado Pismos first record, and several ’50s/’60s vinyl promotional records touting the “new” sound sweeping the world, including a lost Motorola classic with Jonathan Winters. This one just keeps jumpin’ with clicks, scratches, and surface noise.

Illumination

April 12, 2001
Solo



Witchcraft from the mouths of Inquisitors, bloodlines going back to Nimrod, these families now control minds. Trauma based mind control from childhood, and its close association with ancient Satanism. 19th Century racial bloodline mysticism produces the Nazis, an occult philosophy of racial superiority. Belson survivors days after liberation. Several mind control victims happen to be multiple personalities, some of whom carry out brain-wired operations for the Illuminati New Order, and created they say by Nazi doctors and Illuminati satanic parent controllers…. The home of Black Metal! HELL, that’s enough for now. But no – subbing for Puzzling Evidence I hang on to the waves for another two hours with Dr Howl as we discuss… Oh, I forget… the walls of amnesia?

Buy Anything

November 30, 2000
Solo



This solid 5-hour mix is all about old and new mass consumerism and local, national, international, and global marketing. Classic commercial and industrial pep song musicals from the 50s & 60s, Genuine major media interviews with corporate pundants and theorists, an NPR interview with DJ about Negativland’s “Dispepsi” CD with feature clips from your local high school’s Pepsi machine. Jingles galore, the superiferonic malls of today, music and commercials from Raymond Scott’s Manhattan Research – electronic music scores for commercials of the 60s, and Jimi Hendrix bookends.

Time After Time

July 20, 2000
Solo



Leland Googleburger, on tape from the past where he is on a mission, introduces this show about time travel which revolves around a mix of several tales from fiction, including a couple from 50s science fiction radio and “The Time Traveler” by H.G. Wells, mixed up with contemporary scientists discussing todays view of the possibility and how it might be accomplished, as well as why quantum physics suggests “It’s not as far-fetched as you might think.”

Sunshine

September 16, 1999
Solo



With a lot of help from “Mythscape, Remembering The End Of The World,” a video about David Talbot’s theory of primeval planetary configuration, X-Minus One’s “A Pail of Air,” and a lot of sun songs, we consider the possibility that 10,000 to 20,000 years ago, the planets rested in linear conjunction around the sun eventually becoming unstable and interacting in cosmic catastrophes, resulting after eons in our present planetary orbits around the sun. From these prehistoric celestial mechanics going to pieces come our most ancient myths among an earlier earth’s star worshiping civilizations. A cosmically provocative believe-it-or-not with nice MOOD throughout.

A Piddle Diddle Disneyland

August, 1993
Negativland



We join Doug Piddle and Peter Diddle of “The Piddle Diddle Report” as they broadcast live from Disneyland. Joining Doug and Peter is Rex Everything, famous unpublishable author, and modern noise group Negativland. While Rex knowledgeably exposes every dark little nook and cranny in the sordid history of Disneyland, the Weatherman is taking one ride after another and reporting via CB to Doug and Peter’s skybox on the Matterhorn. In between, Negativland does some kind of noise manipulation thing with Disney material. Highly irreverent and probably even more illegal, this show is a radio-only gem.

THE TRAIL OF FEATHERS

March 1993
Solo



This monumental epic traces the history of the decimation of Native North Americans from the earliest Spanish contact through Geronimo’s downfall- four centuries of rather serious mixing! This may be the “heaviest” show available, a juggernaut of carefully collected and rearranged material, with virtually no callers to interrupt the iron-willed direction of the white man at the controls trudging relentlessly through bloody time. I can’t explain this one, but I respect it. It’s a mix with humor in it, but it’s also a heartbreaker.
