26 November 2016 (Goodbye Pauline Oliveros)

Damnit 2016, stop already! We weren’t planning on doing a special memorial show on What’s This Called? this week, but how can we fail to note the passing of one of the great experimental musicians of our era? So we’ll expand the show this week and start at 11 AM Pacific Time on KPSU.org and run all the way to 1 PM with an hour of music by the great Pauline Oliveros followed by the mix intended before the sad news.
