Celebrating 20 years as KPFA's music director, Charles Amirkhanian begins this anniversary show with a work of sound poetry of his own composition. He then plays pieces by Robert Pollock, Roger Sessions, and George Antheil recorded from a concert at Rutgers University on June 3, 1989. Charles then takes a few calls from the audience with their comments and suggestions for programing on KPFA, and finishes it off with a work by Alan Hovhaness.
