Old Is New/New Is Old Receptacle

March 3, 2005
Thomas Dimuzio, Don

Thomas Dimuzio provides his sounds and musical deconstructions for this live mix devoted to the callers and the title idea. However, Jack Benny does the show hell do in 40 years, the Infiniphone captures sound from the past, the Beatles collide, and perhaps its too chaotic because the callers dont seem to have much to say. Just too darn entertaining probably.

Learning To Fly Pt. V

February 17, 2005
Solo

Cleaning up the air with speculative aviation of the future, ranging from personal blimps to NASAs take-off & land space planes that will replace the shuttle. This mix presses on with details about G forces in fighter planes, the next generation of supersonic transports, Area 51 experimental craft like the Aurora, as well as pilot less drones, ram jets, pulse jets, laser jets, and UFOs. And dont forget anti-gravity research, which may eventually throw all these pesky old aerodynamics into the dustbin of history.

Learning To Fly Pt. IV

February 10, 2005
Solo

A good chunk of this part deals with the supersonic transports developed by England, France, and The Soviet Union during the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. The wests Concorde, the Soviet TU44, and Boeings plans for a similar Mach 3 passenger jet form a story of speed overshooting practicality. Too noisy for anyone under them, too fuel inefficient for the times, and too expensive to fly for almost everyone, these SSTs seem to be an example of an enormous technological feat (like going to the moon) with no way to continue paying for its own enormous expenses. But a feat it truly was!

Learning To Fly Pt. III

January 27, 2005
Solo

Beginning with the early ’50s, the sound barrier is broken, rocket technology booms, the cold war and the U-2, jet propelled transportation and the continuing boom and bust of commercial airlines, Sputnik, and the Apollo 11 moon shot lands on the moon.

Learning To Fly Pt. II

Solo

Wiley Post and Will Rogers go down, Amelia Earhart goes down, World War II arrives souping up everything, the jet engine emerges, Howard Hughes takes the Spruce Goose up a few feet, and we end this part in the early ’50s by bumping up against the sound barrier and looking into space.

Learning To Fly Pt. I

January 13, 2005
Solo

With material from many sources, this is all about human dreams of traveling on air and the inventions they evoked, beginning with bicycle wheels and internal combustion engines at the beginning of the 20th Century and moving into the speed racers and flying fighter technology of the 1930s before we run out of time. The Wright Bros. and Langley, the military involvement at the earliest stages of development, Wiley Post, Howard Hughes, The Spitfire, and World War II looms just over the horizon.
