Additional Media Files (click to view)

Beginning in 1972, KPFA Radio broadcast weekly on Friday nights over high quality phone lines from a lovely home in North Berkeley owned by baritone singer Thomas Buckner. The address and name of the concert hall and record company was 1750 Arch Street, and many brilliant composers and performers made this 49-seat hall the place to be in Northern California to hear classical music of all periods, but with an emphasis on the contemporary. This evening-length broadcast featured sound poetry and text-sound compositions by composers Charles Amirkhanian, Tony Gnazzo, and Jim Rosenberg.
