I had rigorously planned this month’s show and packed it up and found out during my day job (I live several miles from work and the station) that Peter Bergman of The Firesign Theatre had passed away that morning. I plan on doing a tribute show of sorts in the near future.
The first quarter of the show was dominated by the Pay It All Back mix, something I’d been working on lately.
We also heard a some brand new Neung Phak and a lovely album by Yamantanka/Sonic Titan, some horrendous Song Poem creations by the bottom-of-the-barrel song sharking outfit Royal Master Recordings, some of the awesome Bongo Joe recently reissued by Mississippi Records, newly reissued Yma Sumac and a bit of Music from Saharan Cellphones (also on Mississippi Records – I forgot I had just bought it and only found it in my crate at the end of the program – expect to hear it in the future).
