All Art Radio Part 5

June 23, 2005
Solo

The neglected art of drawing by kids and adults leads this march of all art. A photographer whose subjects are dead people in the morgue runs into social resistance, an artists poll of paintings people want painted, David Ross expounds on arts changing parameters, Mark Paulines art of mechanical destruction, and once it gets late enough, more dirty words in one place than youve ever heard before.

All Art Radio Part 4

June 16, 2005
Solo

After piles of artist complaints about Andy Warhol, we return to our traditional ALL art formula for artists only, where every artist can find an artist to like. Ranging from Samuel Morse the painter, early Surrealism, comic painters, and theres Andy again, to David Lynchs sight and sound, and landscape painting, we are once again on track with everything everybody wants.

All Art Radio – The Pop Years

June 9, 2005
Solo

This is entirely about early-to-late-’60s pop art and music. Mainly, this is about Andy Warhols career in art, from commercial illustrator to high art guru, and how the concept of popularized celebrity entered the NYC fine art world, along with the seriously impressive work that expressed it, changing American art forever. Listen to Bob Dylan (the other ’60s pop artist featured extensively here) making /”Like A Rolling Stone./” Watch extremely boring movies that resulted from turning on the camera and just letting it run. Notorious glamor and fashion becomes an artistic goal amid the production of artworks in multiples mirroring our commercial landscape of mass product presences, and POP goes the art market. And it ruined a lot of people. /”Everybody warned me not to go near Andy Warhol…/”

Still All Art Radio

Solo

We continue this bright new radio format as if it will never change. Art as covered by old radio, Tod Dokstader explains organized sound, and painters from surrealism to today’s controversial affronts to the NEA.

All Art Radio

May 19, 2005
Solo

All Art Radio returns to the air every few years just to see if there is any need for it yet. This time we focus on painting and Manets career in particular, including the role of French painting in establishing the very idea of avant-garde art. Manets Olympia set the stage for art formula subversion and social taboo breaking that has remained a major impetus in modern art ever since. Meanwhile, modern artists, critics, and commentators debate all the latest spawns of art that shocks and disturbs us today.

So Much For Music

April 14, 2005
Solo

Wrapping up the unwrappable, with Rap, Rock, Hip Hop and music downloading. Mashed Jimmy Hendrix lives today, felony music downloading vs. the owners of culture, the Beatles musically sue each other on bootlegs, and a BBC Pink Floyd retrospective remixed.
Music: So much is given to make it, so much is transmitted through it, and no matter what the threat, it never ends. Never has, never will.

More About Music

April 7, 2005
Solo

Lets continue. Eno narrates. Combine the beginnings of recorded rock which began to see the studio equipment as creative tools, with music sampling and how anyone can construct music on digital software now, then add commercial copyright laws which define all culture as private property (a conceptual position that is utterly irrelevant to making art) and you have this show made out of music about music.

And About Music

March 31, 2005
Solo

Well finally. Heres a lengthy show all about modern music, the business its in, its tendency to borrow from others’ examples and now with the added spice of digital technology allowing everyone to be a recomposer, and how Hip-Hop in particular drove this whole era of mix ‘n mash music abuse to todays head, wherever they may be. Also the clash of business interests vs. art in the age of reproduction, the Internet and music downloading, and a bunch of songs about music. Are you still keeping music in your house?

Evolution Again

March 17, 2005
Solo

Just keep moving; weve got a long way to go. God raises its invisible head a few times in this continuing expose of our million-year romp on Earth. But the origin of our species is still not a clear map to archeological authorities either. Who were the first Americans, scientists from Dimension X speed up evolution inside a drop of water, spiders get their day, frozen accidents, all humans didnt develop civilization at the same rate, and music, a brand new recent development, just keeps playing.

Receptacle Evolution

March 10, 2005
Solo

The results of human evolution to date are given the Receptacle airwaves once again to state their case for the existence of intelligence. Time passes in the form of the history of life on earth compressed into one year, the Cambrian explosion of organic forms which have been diminishing ever since, small /”Hobbit/” human skeletons are discovered, a road trip in France is interrupted by the appearance of a Neanderthal man, and the oddities of evolutionary adaptations in creatures great and small.
