In revamping this interwebsite of joy, I came across two shows that were unaccounted for. Here they are, in full. Oh, the nostalgia. Oh, the pleasure. Oh, oh, oh.

A note about April 27

Most of this show is easy on the ears…

…and then comes Baris Manco, who is easy on the eyes. Listen to a vivid description of this eastern European artist by checking out the lil player down yonder. Eleanor plays him in the first part of her set, and emphasizes, to an uncanny extent, the same features of Baris Manco which I found so compelling.

April 20

Celebrate 420 by Breaking Your Radio!

Hear some naughty, bawdy songs from Olde England, Jamaica, and what might be Germany.

Listen to your favorite tunes by Thelonious Monk and Nirvana, as interpreted via Moog synthesizers.

Also featured is Moms Mabley, who has a bawdy history of her own, and sounds like she graduated from filterless cigarettes to cigars at the ripe age of 8 years old.

April 16: Experimental radio!

Oh man, I really wasn’t intending to play more music on more radio this week, but the host of the show that I engineer–Renegade Solutions, a weekly show dedicated to political rantings and diatribes, as well as “renegade solutions” to pressing issues such as the drug war and environmental pollution–did not come in today.

Thus, I played around in the studio. mwahahaha, experimental radio!

It is appropriate that there is the continuous undertone of a woman reading recipes over found sounds, since this 30-minute show essentially consisted of me combining musical components to cook up a delicious meal of musical noise. Enjoy if you dare!

I’ve also included snippets of Arwulf Arwulf, a fantastic DJ, cultural activist, and mentor who does a show called Face the Music, featuring “alternative national anthems”. But in the clips included here, he is subbing for a show called Pandora’s Lunchbox, which you can get a “taste” of by listening…

A note about April 15. Tossed Salad with James!

I wasn’t intending to play more music on more radio this week, but a DJ is out of town and another DJ has the stomach flu, so James Rocker and I heroically stepped to the plate to sub for their show–Tossed Salad.

I arrived at the station early to yank loads of music from the shelves, and James lassoed me into joining him on the air before he left. Hear our witty banter. Listen to important insights about shriveled toes and feet. Sure, we play the Batman & Robin theme song. Of course, we play an album called Classical Cats, followed by a tune whose lyrics consist entirely of meows. Finally, learn which song James calls his favorite.
