14 April 2018

The show was planned with a goodbye to legendary broadcaster Art Bell, who passed on Friday the 13th. Art was a huge influence on Ricardo Wang as a dj and radio personality. Then as we went on the air we were additionally notified of a more personal death in the family. Consequently, the show starts a bit heavy as Lennon does the ID and dedicates it to his great-grandma Nanie. A solid set of  life affirming experimental music follows.

17 March 2018 (Cyclopsycho/Infinite Sustain Fake News Errata)

While we wholehearted think you should listen to the following program, the opening piece was mis-announced by your host Ricardo Wang. The piece played was by Ashley Shomo who has performed for several years as Cyclopsycho, however, this is a new project called Infinite Sustain. The title of the song was at least correct.

Otherwise, it was St. Patrick’s Day but we didn’t play any songs with green in the title nor try to find U2’s most experimental work to showcase, but Ricardo did do the program in emerald colored pants.
