Composed in 1969 specifically for broadcast on KPFA’s groundbreaking, audience participation, Radio Event series, Anthony Gnazzo has created yet another hilarious work of sound poetry or aural montage. Mixing snippets of advertisements, announcements, and music from the mainstream media, with excerpts of phone interviews that Gnazzo conducted with KPFA listeners about their impressions of radio programming and commercials, this work captures the combination of youthful innocence and crass capitalism that characterized the late 1960s. An absolute gem of adventurous, experimental, radio programing.

Note: Contains some profanity.
