for some inexplicable reason, i went deep down into this Uriah Heep rabbit hole yesterday -- except for "Easy Living" and "Stealin'," i absolutely HATED them when i was a teenager (& i am guessing having to sit through their 30 minute set while waiting to watch The New York Dolls on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert didn't help???) . . . anyway! already i feel like your show will be a wonderful palate cleanser . . . gotta step away from the accu for a bit, but SO HAPPY to be here, listening with you all 😺😺

For context, Nuit de Noces is a series of events where many bands from La Novia play all night (and often part of the afternoon before that). Since many are in several bands, and a lot is improvised, there are often no titles (look here: la-novia.bandcamp.com...)

Avatar 4:48pm
Fabio:

@ coelacanth∅: I want to be clear about something here: it wasn't just that "factory noises" were mentioned, there was a specific show in which he went on to talk about something that happened within the station over 35 years ago. this was then used to stroke his own ego, talking nonsense about a "certain dj" who he would not name. this was outrageous and despicable behavior toward a fellow dj. and this is all I will say about it. but hearing that more has been spouted on the air is really ugly stuff and it is unfortunate that someone would be so self absorbed and petty.

only heard "The Wizard" for the first time yesterday (i think? unless it was played on WNEW-FM and i was not aware) -- i kinda liked it? or maybe it was the flashback to early 70s music, vibes, etc. (this was on youtube) -- the fashions! the girls dancing! some doing what looked like some kinda interpretive dance -- ??

and i found an even older song, pre-David Byron -- "Lady in Black," iirc -- also really *evocative* of those early 70s sounds :)

Sunday noon–three is a mausoleum, where you can hear the same echoes from the past 20 years. If he's stooping to bashing other folks from longer ago than some listeners and even DJs have been alive, the proprietor of that slot has even less in the tank than I thought. For bold, adventurous, inspired radio that keeps pushing the edge instead of huffing its own jockstrap, I go to Strength Through Failure, among MANY others. /rant

Chaton had an exhibition nearby this year (pretty good). It was free, but there was a small printer at the front door that gave you a numbered ticket with "I saw it" on top

Karlheinz Stockhausen performed this piece in the NL in 1956 as part of the Gaudeamus Muziekweek i just found.. I know he did work at the Gaudeamus studio.

slugluv my tolerance of Byron's singing is limited!
but it never used to be. i think because i've heard so many ("metal") imitators since i was into the 'eep back in the day that that style has been worn out for me.

Apparently Stockhausen is also the name of a German catering company. A coworker brought back a paper band from a sandwich as proof (and pics). Funny thing is that it was at a computer music conference. So *that* Stockhausen at least definitely is available to serve whoever pays

hi chresti!
right?!? and i am totally loving that prog show, as do others -- my guess is that (whether we like it or not!), many of us grew up with "progressive rock" (sez the goofball who is *now* digging deep into Uriah Heep 😹😹)

and as dear Wm. Berger used to say (paraphrasing?): if you don't like what you hear, change the station!

listener james - second (third) that; I always feel like maybe I'm wrong about GJ and that the "thing" he does actually stands on its own merits like all the other DJ "things." And I don't even really mind the music, though I find he's more and more talk than music. But/and/so/thus/moreover/etc the "thing" feels hollow or dishonest or something. Even an annoying shtick has merit if it's done honestly...
