Radio Lost & Found for 10/12/17

With live guests John Saint-Pelvyn and Paul Metzger


Paul Metzger at KBOO Studios

Screen Shot 2017-10-13 at 9.07.41 PM

John Saint-Pelvyn

I was pleased to be joined by guitarist , aka Steven Matheson and multi-stringed banjo artist Paul Metzger. Both artists are from Minnesota and are embarking on a West Coast tour, and appearing the night after this how at Portland’s Turn Turn Turn.
Both sets were amazing. It’s too bad radio listeners didn’t get to see John roam around the studio and explore the acoustics of the room with his hollowbody electric and frequently vocalizing right into the f-holes. Similarly, Paul played his amazingly peculiar banjo in the darkened room, playing it with a bow and using all manners of extended string instrument techniques.
If you get a chance to catch both or either artist while they’re on tour, I strongly recommend that you do.

Here’s the show.

More Forgotten Punk (non)Hits w/ DJ FU and Radio Lost & Found

We’re doing it again! – so says the KBOO radio episode page.

We had a lot of fun. Hope you like this show.

Radio Lost & Found for 09/14/17

rlf corben spaceman hm-01.png

Hüsker Dü (RIP Grant Hart), Holger Czukay (RIP), Halim El-Dahb (RIP), The Space Lady (coming to town!), some crazy 70s electronic music by Gökçen Kaynatan, a Tucson AZ noise comp. and more!

Back in the saddle after more than a month at KBOO studios (the Hilo Radio show is still plugging along, though), while I gave up my slots for August to let Jamilah B. of Guess Who’s Coming To Radio wind down with some bonus shows while she prepares to move to New York.

A few tributes to recently flown away artists; Grant Hart who had just passed away the morning of this show, Holger Czukay, who many had done great tribute shows for, but I couldn’t do a show without some kind of hommage. And lastly, Musique Concrete and Electronic Music pioneer Halim El-Dahb, who passed away earlier this month at the age of 96.

I also played some Space Lady, who’s coming into town.

Hope you like this show.

Radio Lost & Found: HiLo Radio Ed. 08/30/17


An exclusive mix for HiLo Radio listeners…
As you probably know, most Radio Lost & Found shows originate from KBOO Community Radio in Portland OR. For a few months, I’ve been preparing shows for Ohio’s HiLo Radio to run every Wednesday evening (10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific). It’s a weekly show, so every other show is an all new, exclusive mix from my home studio in Brush Prairie Washington. I’m slowly getting my studio up to snuff again after years of not doing live radio from my house – my previous show Kill Ugly Radio originated out of my home and ran on the now defunct Radio 23 network.

I mulled over possibly not archiving these HiLo shows, but I’ve taken a short break from KBOO to allow a departing host – Jamilah of Guess Who’s Coming to Radio??!! – more time slots to finish off her show with a bang. This means no shows for KUR/Radio Lost & Found podcast subscribers for a spell. So….

Here it is. I’m experimenting with cutting these shows live in real time, one-take. It’s much more exciting and spontaneous than assembling a bunch of files in a DAW. It’s a bit rough around the edges as I continue to get my gear back in shape, but I think it’s OK.
Let me know what you think.

Radio Lost & Found for 08/10/17

rlf_edge of time-01

New Bran Flakes, Diamanda Galas, some peculiar stuff from someone named BJ Morrizonkle and more!

I had fun doing this show. Lots of nice callers tonight for some reason. Noting this for posterity; the Portland/Vancouver area has been blanketed by a stagnant cloud of smoke for the past couple of weeks, along with a heatwave the likes of which we’re not used to in the usually rainy Pacific Northwest. Nasal and throat irritation are rampant for us poor Douglas Fir denizens, hence my phlegm attack apparent as soon as I potted up my announcing mic. Call me Phlegmmy Kilmister.

Hope you liked what I played. I played some of The Bran Flakes‘ spankin’ new album Help Me, finally got my hands on Diamanda Galas‘ new (well, one of the two anyway) album All The Way, played some of the fantastic Mary Halvorson Quintet and a peculiar artist by the name of BJ Morrizonkle.

Maybe it was the stagnant air and heat that had people hunkered down and listening to the radio because I got more calls than usual, mostly asking what I was playing and saying they liked it. Nice!

Fun show but was really tired and somewhat ill prepared for this week’s show. Oh well. I hope you like it.
