1. - Ode To Gravity The Music of Kermit Lynch [6.238% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: The Music of Kermit Lynch Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian interviews Berkeley songwriter and wine connoisseur, Kermit Lynch, one of the country’s most highly respected importers of French wine. In a previous life, following his childhood in San Luis Obispo, and his unsuccessful foray into the treacherous world of academia at Fresno State University, Kermit moved to Berkeley, California, attended San Francisco State University, and was a founding member of a band called The Roaches (a name inspired perhaps by their better known competitors, The Beatles). This program reveals to the world the original song compositions of Kermit Lynch written between 1966 and 1971, as recorded in 1987 during a studio session in San Francisco. Among the songs is “Live It Up”, inspired by and dedicated to Jerry Lee Lewis. Lynch also discusses his book, “Adventures on the Wine Route: A Winebuyer’s Tour of France”. (from KPFA...
2. - Music In America Chris Strachwitz presents the music of Little Walter [5.576% Popularity: 0.00000]
Music In America: Chris Strachwitz presents the music of Little Walter Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 77 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA The great singer and harmonica blues legend Little Walter is discussed just 18 months after his death in Chicago at age 37 and presented by Arhoolie Records founder Chris Strachwitz. Louisiana-born Marion Walter Jacobs (1930-1968) came to be known as the Charlie Parker or Jimi Hendrix of his instrument, the harmonica. He revolutionized its use by cupping a small microphone in his hand over the instrument and amplifying it directly into the public address system, making it equal in volume to the electric guitar. This collection of rare performances, including selections from acetates and 78s, was recorded on September 24, 1969, at KPFA FM in Berkeley by engineer Dan McCloskey and first broadcast on October 18, 1969. It’s notable for an enthusiastic, young-sounding Strachwitz, unleashing his treasured collection of sides from the late Forties not yet re...

4. - Interview with Primous Fountain III [5.075% Popularity: 0.00000]
Interview with Primous Fountain III Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 53 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian talks with the African American composer, Primous Fountain III of Chicago, who traveled to the West Coast in 1972 to witness a performance of his “Manifestation” by the Oakland Symphony Orchestra. Also in the studio were Maestro Harold Farberman and Charles Shere. Fountain has had his orchestral compositions performed by the Chicago and Boston Symphonies, but has composed jazz works for Quincy Jones and rhythm and blues music as well. The most remarkable aspect of this composer is his age: he was born in 1949 and his “Manifestations” was composed when he was only 18. Musical Selections: The Ballet / Primous Fountain III -- [unidentified jazz piece] -- Pick Up Your Love and Throw It On Me / Primous Fountain III Performers: Berkshire Music Center Orchestra (Ballet) Gunther Schuller, conductor (Ballet) Genres: 20th Century Classical ; Jazz Subject: Fountain, Primou...
5. - Ode To Gravity Vocal Yokels [5.068% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Vocal Yokels Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 mins Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA An eclectic mix of text-sound compositions, world music, and other bizarre recordings, some of which were presented at the 1970 Fylkingen Festival in Stockholm. Highlights of this adventurous free-form radio program include Arne Mellnäs’ “Far Out,” a hauntingly beautiful auditory portrait of Laura Nyro, in which elements of some her best known songs are artfully mixed and manipulated to eloquently evoke the career of this talented singer-songwriter. Also heard are a couple of pieces of sound poetry by Charles Amirkhanian, some of which may have been improvised on the spot by the host, and a program closing montage of electronic music, excerpts from “The Merchant of Venice”, committee meeting roll calls, and other sundry sounds. Filling in the gaps of this lively and engaging program are selections of world music, wolves howling, and the sounds of breathing. Taken in its entiret...
6. - Frank Zappa Day [5.057% Popularity: 0.00000]
Frank Zappa Day Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 240 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA On February 10, 1986, as part of its fund raising marathon, KPFA dedicated an entire day of programming to the music of Frank Zappa, including this four hour long segment, during which Zappa joined Charles Amirkhanian, live in the studio to talk about his work and his fight against censorship, as well as to take part in an hour long panel discussion on gang violence and its relationship to rock music and Satanism. Although much of the time is taken up with pleas for money, Zappa manages to insert his brand of sardonic humor into all the activities, be it personally promising donors will go to heaven, or urging the police to investigate the crimes committed by born-again Christians. The give and take with KPFA listeners during a call-in period following the panel discussions is not to be missed. Zappa also reveals a few nuggets of trivia including the origin of those crazy conversations foun...
7. - New music, composers, poetry, video and audio streaming [5.040% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radical Aesthetics and Sound Sensitivity Information Charles Amirkhanian, KPFA's Sound Sensitivity Information Director, has been invited to join the staff of radio station VPRO in Holland from September to January. Although VPRO is a government supported station, it is enthusiastic about the Pacifica stations and we have both felt the benefit of these exchanges. Most recently, KPFA was host to Philippe Scheltema who did the midday program Here's Philippe this past winter. It helps keep our flow of information and input of ideas fresh and flexible, covering broad areas of radio, politics, and of course radical aesthetics… In Europe, radio is still alive and kicking—a force for intelligent, in-depth analysis and debate, music and literature broadcasts of a sophisticated nature, and productions in all areas of programming which are carefully thought out and skillfully accomplished by audio technicians who are experts in making a point without the aid of a video screen. But in the United States, virtually every ...
8. - Wester Sun Day II [3.937% Popularity: 0.00000]
Wester Sun Day II Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) A rather irreverent Easter Day program produced by conceptual artist, Paul Cotton and friends. Assembling a hodgepodge of popular music, strange readings, snippets of childhood stories, and sexually explicit poetry, Cotton, who is perhaps best known for appearing in public in a large bunny costume with his genitals showing, has produced here a sort of hippie celebration of all things Easter. This program was described in KPFA’s program guide as: “Eight Astro-Naught Rabb-Eyes Make a Leap of Faith into Berkeley’s Live Oak Park to be at Yore Service with Good News for Modern Man. KPFA acts as the Station of the Cross for Pauly M. Purr Verse’s ‘Breath-Taking Sculptural Feet.’” Which, while not very descriptive of the actual content, does give a good sense of the spirit of this program. If you are a devout Christian who is lacking a sense of humor you may find thi...
