Tonight I’m joined by special guest Jon Nelson, who many of my more Plundercentric listeners may be familiar with both through his amazing radio show Some Assembly Required, but also his own found sound music project Escape Mechanism.

Some Assembly Required (1999-2011) Showcasing audio work by artists who appropriate sounds from the media environment, Some Assembly Required was heard on dozens of stations across the US and Canada, for over a decade.

It was a gas. Jon brought lots of stuff I was totally unfamiliar with and we had a great time. I am hoping he’ll join us again soon.
