15th Anniversary Blas-Travaganza Part XI: The Gordon Taylor!

Composed of many of my friends, and members of other bands I’ve loved over the years, Gordon Taylor – or, THE Gordon Taylor, according to their drummer – might be my favorite band of all time.  It is hard to tell exactly what it is about them that really makes me love them so much.  They have a quality to their earnestness, and a sense of wonder that captures my intellectual interests, as well as my libidinal desire to rock.  Each of them has a skill with their instrument of choice that really allows themselves to cut loose in ways they don’t normally.  Every time I’ve been able to see them is a moment that I treasure to this day, and when I heard that they would play as part of the Blas-Travaganza, I knew they would be the perfect headliners for Day 2.

Day 2

Day 2

The Gordon Taylor is one of those things that defies description, and instead just begs you to dance.  While no official document of their work has ever been released, the two times they played on my show, and the time I was allowed to join them on tour, are some of the most important moments of my life.  They have always been honest with me, in every way, and the fact that they were willing to join me for this show means the world to me.

I love them, and I can only hope that you love them as much as I do, too.

Enjoy!

Episode 163: Ramen City Radio

The Ramen City Kid Himself!

The Ramen City Kid Himself!

Episode 163: Ramen City Radio
(Featuring excerpts from the earliest days of our program featuring one of the most important figures in college radio history: The Ramen City Kid.)

As we continue our journey through the nostalgic origins of this program for our 14th Anniversary, we cannot overlook the influence of none other than The Ramen City Kid. Roommate, zinester, bread baker, and much much more, I met him in 1994, and we’ve been friends (and often roommates) ever since. His taste has affected my interest in film, music, radio, people, books, and everything in between, and without him, I would not be the person (or DJ) I am today. It is to him that this episode is dedicated, as we listen to edited highlights from five of his recorded appearances on this program in 1998.

There were others, of course, but time has not been kind, and many of these programs went un-recorded, or lost in the years since. Still, these excerpts serve to give you a sense of what the program was like in those days, with and ear for emphasizing his voice and musical selections as best as possible. None of these shows exist in their complete forms, but I’ve done my best to present the spirit of these shows for a modern audience. I hope you enjoy the results.

As a point of order: aside from the spots, and voice overs, all the music heard in this program were taken from the original broadcasts as listed below. Those songs were actually played that night. I’ve created loops for the voice overs, but those songs really were heard on those days.

This one is a concentrated blast of nostalgic radio, without any of the bells and whistles. Hopefully there will be more bells and whistle in future shows.

See you in seven!

Happy 14th!

Episode 162: 14th Anniversary Explosion!

As the 14th Anniversary of our first broadcast was on Sunday, today’s show is a retrocast of selections and samples from our earliest recorded programs from or KWVA years.  In the late ’90’s, College Radio (the kind of radio I prefer) was a very different place.  We had different technology, and a different approach to what qualified as entertainment.  Fortunately, the glory of cassette tapes has maintained a way for us to capture these broadcasts and re-present them to you here, and now.

However, there is a slightly sinister element to this episode, too.  In somewhat of a sequel to “It Looks Like Thousands Of Stars” (and episode from 18 July 2007), I accidentally encounter a space / time anomaly, where I encounter none other that DJ Really Sloppy, who has also become unstuck in time.  As I continue to experience the sounds of past radio programs, I hope that by listening to them may offer me a chance to return home afterward.  Will I?  Tune in and find out!

This episode was a lot of fun.  While the official archive of our programs does not include every show we aired (or, even, complete shows), we do have a number of recordings of the shows from our KWVA incarnation.  Digging through that archive – now digital, thank Earl – allowed me to pick some of the more well known moments captured on tape.  As you can tell, I was heavily influenced by Negativland’s “Over The Edge” program, and you’ll find that these mixes and whatnot are but the tip of the ice berg when it comes to what the show really was like.

Having done a lot of preliminary editing, there will be more “best of” programs as I sort and organize the material.  But this is a show I’ve been wanting to do since 2004, and only now do I have the technology to really bring it to you the way I was hoping I could.

Along with this show, we’ve also released a new podcast feed, entitled “14th Anniversary,” that we suggest as a compliment to this program.    It contains a number of programs that illustrate more of the kind of program this show was like in the early years, as well as some other anniversary broadcasts, including: an interview with Exene Cervenka, two programs featuring Holden Craft’s appearances on this show, and the surviving audio from our very first program on 15 April 1998.  It’s all part of the anniversary fun.

I hope you enjoy these strange and twisted audio creations I made during my radio show really late at night in Eugene during the late ’90’s after I would get fully loaded at the bar and broadcast on FM Radio.  They were as much fun to make as they are to describe.

See you in seven!

Popped To Perfection

Episode 065: Popcorn Party PM w/ Isosceles Diego!
(Featuring a wide array of songs from the personal collection of Isosceles Diego.)

I’m pretty sure I say this ever time, but I really do love having guests on my show. And when you have one as good as Isosceles Diego, it really doesn’t get any better. He’s been making appearances on my show since the beginning, and between his various jaunts to Europe, he likes to make me incredible mix CDs and read books about languages I’ve never heard of. You may remember his appearance from over a year ago (Live From Circus Minimus!). This particular week he wanted to bring you a good long dose on New Wave from around the globe, and as usual, he delivered.

This will probably be the only time Dexy’s Midnight Runners got playing on the radio, and it wasn’t “Come On Eileen.” But that’s not all. Hidden gems like The Method Actors and Scars make appearances, as well as a healthy dose of the Rhino Records release, Crime Jazz. This is a pretty great BBQ kind of show, so bump this one to a CD and enjoy.

On a technical note: There was a problem with the turntable during The Twinkeyz song near the beginning of the show, and we were only getting sound out of one channel. Once Isosceles transitioned to his next song, I was able to fix the needle. From that point on, we got stereo. I should also mention that, on the whole, I did very little work on this show. Isosceles is a radio veteran from over 10 years ago, and I was basically just there to keep him company and eat an apple. If you like his style, why not send you e-mails that say as much, so I can use them to help get him back on the air.

See ya in seven.

Isosceles Diego’s Valentine’s Day Special (KPSU Phase I Episode 140)

Recreated using playlist information and the full hour that exists from this show, the original form of this broadcast was a two-hour special, featuring pre-recorded segments from the DJ after me, who would “appear” to discuss his VD plans with his girlfriend.  Those segments, minus a handful of voice overs, are missing from this presentation.

However, what you do get is a fantastic DJ set by my friend Isosceles Diego, and the complete first hour, in all of it’s majesty and wonder.  Thanks again buddy!  You totally delivered a show when I was not ready to do one.

The Mayonnaise Vs. Venn, LIVE! (Live Friday 051)

“Eating Solid Foods Since 1981.”  Born on a napkin at the Alibi Family Restaurant and Tiki Lounge, The Mayonnaise has run rampant through the streets, stealing ears from our heads and dollars from our wallets with little or no repercussions.  But now, Radicchio and Arugula Venn have taken it upon themselves to wage unending battle against the omnipresent Mayonnaise to protect the rest of us from being emulsified into mediocrity. With love, support and musical contributions from the rest of Venn family, they labor day and night so that you may rest assured that the world is, and always will be, a safe and harmonious place to listen. And now, you can do so, here on Live Friday.

Gordon Taylor, LIVE! (Live Friday 041)

Gordon Taylor are four protein-derived life-forms that play songs about science, history and medical oddities. Having only been around a short period of time, they’ve already formed quite a name for themselves with the few blow-out performances they’ve allowed us to witness. An upstanding bunch of young striplings, they wax melodic and rock geodesic. Formed out of the smoldering chunks of Rise Over Run (formerly Lina Alba) and assisted by Johnny-Cat on drums, Gordon Taylor are on their way to taking Portland by storm that will leave you soaked and satisfied as you trudge through our streets. If they were a body part, it’d be the pancreas. A chord? F-sharp. A Max Stop? Ruby Junction… Playing on KPSU? Right now…
