This week's podcast: New Directions

https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTrL_xhWD27ljNbbRdYibc6PIS_tN4v953upg&usqp=CAU

We're going to try doing new 25-minute long-form audio collage around here every week.  Nothing given its final form by other people, and not anything I've posted before.  Hope so, anyway.  It might start getting a little odd audio in here.

Found Art (Adblocker)

 

Adblocker is like the Banksy of internet synchronicity.
 
...oh my god.  It's an illustration for today's actual news story.  It's Trump before the Supreme Court!  The other guy is Kyle Rittenhouse, which is probably a comment in itself.  But the teeth are definitely this thing--

 
 and there's some sort of intentional pun on the expression "screw" or "screw with".  Wow.  Thomas Nast must be out there in the aether somewhere.

This week's podcast: Air Pirates of the 21st Century

Enter the strange world of true underground radio.  Thanks to the fine Internet Archive, and untold hours trying to make it sound listenable, we present an eclectic journey into what's leaking out the sides of your radio when no one's listening.
 
Here is a sample, a slightly burnished rendition of the Youngbloods' song "Get Together."

Jimi Hendrix's 78th Birthday

A note about this week's podcast.
 
Track #4, the 2020 Birthday Jam, was created this week from the same two bootlegs that Alan Douglas used when he compiled "Captain Coconut" for the 1975 album, Crash Landing: "MLK" and "New Rising Sun".  We both chopped up the originals, but recombined them differently.  My version kept Buddy Miles and Billy Cox. 
 
(Hendrix improvised an original "MLK" at a memorial concert.  This isn't it.  It's been described as one of the most beautiful, heartfelt tunes he ever played.  No known recording.  Oh well.)
