bIG NeWs! — I’ll be starting a weekly radio show on WFMU this June. Expect lots of exclusive tunes & special live guests. 91.1 FM in the New York City area, with excellent internet streaming.
I’m looking for an assistant to help produce the show. I’VE GOT STRONG NEW IDEAS regarding radio’s possibilities & maybe you could help… The person must be familiar with basic audio editing and HTML-podcast-blog use, with a passion for local radio and cosmopolitan bass and (if i’m really lucky) poets/performers whose work happens in sound.
please pass the word on to any NYC-area individuals who might be down. contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
** in 2002 I did a 1-hour mix (realAudio stream) for FMU.
5 years back & it still bumps future-now.
** i’m DJing at a FREE wfmu PARTY @ Southpaw, Brooklyn this Saturday. info. Doors at 8pm, I go on at 9. and I’d recommend coming early since it’s likely to fill up, what with these bands and all…
I’ll be accompanied by Daniel Perlin on video. (we’ve performed together in Europe a bunch, this is our first thing in the US). Catch Daniel’s live audio pieces at Harvard this evening.
** Caroline Bergvall as selector! Check her ‘March selection’ of free mp3s on Ubuweb. People Like Us, Masaoka’s Ritual with Giant Hissing Madasgar Cockroaches, Caetano Veloso & more (pets).
ps. “ritual with giant hissing madagascar cockroaches” was performed by the artist Miya Masaoka with thirteen madagascar cockroaches triggering the insects’ amplified hissing while crawling over her body.
getting into the radiophonic spirit, here are my hands on John Peel’s show, live at Maida Vale. ah, the good ol’ days… no giant cockroaches, just foxes on the city streets outside (from Failme’s Flickr.)
