1. radiOM.org - 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. radiOM.org - 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...
3. radiOM.org - 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...
4. radiOM.org - 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...
5. radiOM.org - 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...
6. radiOM.org - Folk Music with Rolf Cahn The Blues Music of Steve Talbot [3.554% Popularity: 0.00000]
Folk Music with Rolf Cahn: The Blues Music of Steve Talbot Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 42 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Rolf Cahn introduces a selection of Blues music, performed by Steve Talbot and recorded by Cahn in his home during a late night visit by the guitarist. Talbot, who might be best known as the person who along with Jorma Kaukonen came up with the name Jefferson Airplane, was a musician in his own right,noted for his understated and deceptively simple version of the Blues. Utilizing a variety of tuning and picking techniques Talbot performs a selection of songs made popular by such Blues legends as Jim Jackson, Leadbelly, and Elizabeth Cotton. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: [excerpt of unidentified blues guitar] (0:40) -- Down on a Rainy Night (2:15) -- [unidentified blues song] (3:15) -- She’s Gone (2:28) -- Wild About My Lovin’ (1:09) -- Portland Town (2:49) -- Poor Howard (2:49) -- Sebastopol (2:33) Performers: Rolf Cahn, guitar and vocals (first two songs) Ste...
7. radiOM.org - An Evening of Player Pianos [3.232% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Evening of Player Pianos Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 105 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Blues, pop and classical music is heard performed on two 50 year old player pianos. Charles Amirkhanian and Bill Schechner are guests in the home of Sally and Dale Lawrence and are invited to paw through 700 rolls, and play as many as possible. Amirkhanian and Schechner also interview Dick Rutlinger & Mel Luccetti, who are both members of the Automatic Musical Instrument Collectors Association (AMICA). Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Song of India / Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov -- American in Paris: Part 2 / George Gershwin -- Music of the Spheres [part 5 of "Winterreigen"] / Ernő Dohnanyi Genre: Mechanical Music Subject: Player piano ; Player piano music ; Mechanical pianos ; Popular music People: Amirkhanian, Charles ; Schechner, Bill ; Lawrence, Sally ; Lawrence, Dale ; Rutlinger, Dick ; Luccetti, Mel ; Gershwin, George, 1898-1937 ; Rimsky-Korsakov, Nikolay, 1844-1908 ; Dohnányi...
8. radiOM.org - Zappa as DJ, 1968 [2.450% Popularity: 0.00000]
Zappa as DJ, 1968 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 97 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded in 1968, Tom Donahue interviews Frank Zappa about his life and work, and allows the irreverent rock star to present some of his favorite music. The ensuing free form program ranges from surf music, doo-wop, jazz, the blues, to the works of Pierre Boulez. The song selection is very informative for any fan of Zappa’s music, as one can easily trace the influence of all these styles on his own creative output, be it the cheesy harmonies of 1950s pop songs or the intricate percussive patterns of Boulez’s avant-garde classical compositions. The role that such songs had on Zappa’s own musical evolution is made all the more clear at the end of this hilarious program when a selection of satirical songs from the Mothers of Invention are also heard. Part 1 of 4: Musical Selections: Agency Man / Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention -- The Handsome Cabin Boy / [traditional] ...
9. radiOM.org - Folk Music with Rolf Cahn Mance Lipscomb [2.216% Popularity: 0.00000]
Folk Music with Rolf Cahn: Mance Lipscomb Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 52 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA In a program originally recorded in May of 1963, Rolf Cahn and Phil Huffman talk to Texas bluesman Mance Lipscomb, about his life and music. He describes growing up as a Baptist in the South, the balance between singing and playing music, as well as the origins of many of his best known songs. Throughout the discussion, Lipscomb performs a number of both famous and obscure acoustic blues songs, often responding to requests by Huffman and Cahn, who sound as pleased as two cats in a fish pond to be there for their own private concert by this extraordinary talent. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Run Sinner, Run -- Motherless Children -- God Moves on the Water / Blind Willie Johnson -- ’Bout a Spoonful -- Rock Me Mama -- Night Time is the Right Time -- Buck Dance -- So Different Blues Performers: Mance Lipscomb, guitar and vocals Genres: Popular Music ; Folk Music Subj...
