Also a brief tribute to the brilliant Malcolm Cecil and his part in the evolution of sound and synthesis with Tonto’s Expanding Headband, Stevie Wonder and so much more. 


These shows are highly improvised. In taking this approach to doing radio, sometimes unpredictable connections happen that may be straight from the subconscious and can only be seen later. 


Or maybe they’re just random. 


Thanks for tuning in!!
