Broadcasted live from the Mills College Electronic Tape Music Center via a remote, portable transmitter, Tom Zahuranec's "Bucket-Ful Mercury Walk" invited listeners at home to drive to Mills and assist in creating sounds using various electronic equipment including Moog and Buchla synthesizers. Guests discovered and experimented with their manipulated voices while others helped turn knobs on the instruments. Charles Amirkhanian reports live from the event, which over two hundred people attended, including Don Buchla who brought in one of his newest model synthesizers of that time. The program features over 45 minutes of analog sounds for listeners to bathe themselves in. This recording is one in a series of audience participation radio programs in which artists were given air time to create situations that physically involved the listening audience.

Note: Tom's last name is pronounced ‘Zur-a-ness'
