KCRW Broadcast 347 Fanatic! Writing to you from Ushuaia, Argentina. If you look on the map, you will see how there isn’t much further I can go before I run out of Argentina to be in. Tomorrow, I will be boarding a small ship for Antarctica where I will spend about a week and a half and then return to Los Angeles.
KCRW Broadcast 346 Fanatic! As I write this, I am in Antwerp Belgium, in an enormous production hall, where we have been rehearsing for the Gutterdämmerung rollout tomorrow night in London. We will run through everything here one more time and then get on the train and head to London. I won’t be there for long but it’s always great to be there.
KCRW Broadcast 345 Fanatic! I hope you are digging your November wherever you are. Temperatures dropped in Los Angeles recently. I celebrated by listening to Nico and Stockhausen. I became interested in Stockhausen watching the Kraftwerk and The Electronic Revolution documentary. I only have one record of his but there’s a lot online to listen to. So far, very interesting stuff.
KCRW Broadcast 343 Fanatic! This is our last show for October but fear not! We have great shows for November already in the can. I thought we should take out first out and just listen to nothing but Damned music. I hope that’s okay with you! It’s not like we don’t enjoy them every other month of the year but there is something about October and that music that really works, so we will get right into it.
KCRW Broadcast 340 Fanatic! Welcome to our first October broadcast. It’s always a good month for music of course but there is something about October that makes music sound great. We have been working for quite a while on our October shows. For me, it’s a month of memory. I listen to new music all the time but in this month, I like to listen to music I grew up with a careful ear, trying to understand it differently. It is a month I look forward to.
KCRW Broadcast 335 Fanatic! This is a slightly odd occasion. Pretend I have not told you this like three times before. This show will be live. There is a very good chance that Engineer X will be in the studio along with Engineer Amy. We will have as an in-studio guest and music contributor, Julia Wilson of Rice Is Nice Records.
KCRW Broadcast 334 Fanatic! Hey. Thanks for checking out what will be on the show. I am in sunny Quito, Ecuador at the moment. I spent a week on the Napo River and returned here yesterday. This location is up in the Andes, as compared to Coca, where I left the boat, which is in the Amazon Basin. It was a great time.
