160k, 90 minutes, becoming coherent
We live in such a time that not long ago we had a government which refused to listen to the people. Now we are unsure of what is heard by the govt and what isn't. Something coherent has been lost. The date of this show, April 20, is the anniversary of so many "issues." Hitler's birthday, the anniversary of Waco and Oklahoma City and Columbine. (It's also my dad's birthday.) So much of modern experience is beyond any kind of ordinary comprehension, because it is beyond our senses and systems. This program also signifies ten years in Iraq, which was an unjust illegal war. So what it does is use examples of favorite modernist musics (mostly ambient instrumentals but also containing songs) in order to call for revolution. Yes, a call for blood. Listen close or you'll miss it. Each musical piece is a "text" to add to all the other texts.
Set list (long ambient pieces overlapping & incomplete): Kevin Ayers, Robert Wyatt, Francois Bayle-"IT" (We Did It Again) / North Michigan Radio Scan / Led Zeppelin-Ten Years Gone / Robin Wood-The Incoherent Text (excerpt Hollywood from Vietnam to Reagan, read by your dj) / Caroliner-Legs Go, Mind Goes, Lungs Go (7") / Frank Dommert-Kiefermusik / Nurse With Wound-Cold / The Hassles-Hour of the Wolf / Merzbow-Another Crash for High Tide / Dusted-Childhood / Mort (sung in Spanish, can anyone help me identify this old salsa?) / Molotov Cocktail-New Year's Eve saxophones and UFOs / Asmus Tietchens-Linea / Donovan-Ferris Wheel / Underworld-Kittens / Cluster-Untitled / THU20-Der Holzweg / Sky Cries Mary-2000 Light Years from Home / MIJ-Two Stars / Yes-And You and I / The Haters-Journey into Pain / Frank Dommert-Das Leben in Sulz / Wendy Carlos-Beethoven's 9th (Scherzo)

160k, 81 minutes, exploring the American Myth in musical collage
This is a tightly focused program designed to meet the challenge of what we call Independence Day, more about what this country stands for to so many in this world, love and war and famine and peace, four months out before an election that will either take us in the right direction or lose the country altogether. No more time to pretend this is way things always are and that nothing changes, for it does. It always, constantly changes. The people of these songs are not standing on the sideline watching.

Burroughs-K9 Was In Combat With The Alien Mind Screen / Nurse With Wound-Salt Marie Celeste / James Blood Ulmer-Are You Glad To Be In America? / Simon & Garfunkel-America / Sun Ra-Exotic Forest / Beach Boys-Cabin Essence (early version) / Grateful Dead-Thunder & Lightning_Shakedown Street (2 Feb 1979 Oakland Coliseum) / Jimi Hendrix-The Star Spangled Banner (18 Aug 1969 Woodstock) / Suicide-Ghost Rider (July 1984 Irving Plaza, NYC) / Kitten Sparkles at Jabberjaw, L.A. 1995 / Die Trip Computer Die-America Is Burning / Tori Amos-Home on the Range / The Doors-L'America / Funkadelic-America Eats Its Young / Van Dyke Parks-By the People / The Work-I Hate America / Steppenwolf-Monster / Backlist / Always Is Always / Outro
With thanks to my listeners, killradio, and radio4all.net. This program is presented for educational purposes, and comments are requested. The Chill Room will be closing soon and I would love to hear from my listeners.
But still from near and far to seek America they came by thousands to court the wild.

128k, 94 minutes, oblivion and after
There's a new kind of Fascism that has infected the world, and it is based on money, on the haves and the have-nots. It thinks that only the "haves" have rights and that the rest of us can be thrown away like garbage. This program subverts such attempts at order and rearranges the pieces into moments of pure release. Fascists will hate this program
