Wobbly, Don.

Amen Seat

March 19, 2009
Jon Leidecker, MaryClare Brz, Don.
A special drop-in, pop up, insert show. Wobbly and MaryClare Brz, are Amen Seat, and they play live so called music for about an hour. Your host, Crosley Bendix, then repeats a cultural review on the end of music for Wobbly who wants to record it for a lucrative WebNet deal. He also interviews Crosley about Negativland history and collage. The final hour is a dense mix of musical examples that typify everything the previous hour was talking about.

The Chopping Channel World Radio World II

Feb. 19, 2009
John Leidecker, Peter Conheim, Mark Gergis, Don.
The Chopping Channel returns with its semi-biannual tribute to avant commercialism and the almighty pitch. Several pitchmen with shifting names get it on between pitches describing unknowingly how empty their lives really are and have been since World Radio World I. At least thats one interpretation. This is the first group mix sound collage on OTE in quite a while.

The Chopping Channel – Love Cuts

May 29, 2008
Peter Conheim, Jon Leidecker, Katie, Don

The Chopping Channel shows up to play live with the premise of selling love. For this 5-hour show, Bud Choke hosts, and along with Wobbly, Velma, and the irrepressible Katie, mix it up with lots of callers and plenty of noise, while exhibiting cut-up and manipulated music and songs about love. Often verbose without being funny, we take it as it comes, and the mix perhaps improves as some participants retreat to home and bed about halfway through.
