Ben talks about Electro-Theremin, a one-of-a-kind instrument made by Moog & used on the Beach Boys's "Good Vibrations"

SPAT ARRIVES!! (unfortunately he's in the country for his grandmother's funeral)

Ben sells 2 Flexure LPS: one to Spat & one to Hyla (THX to both of you for supporting this fantastic work!) [I'm on my 4th playing of it now]

tENT shows "Jail Jones / Free Duane" LP 'hoax' by the Feral Family & we talk about Duane Jones, a local guitarist

Clint plays "Sheng Music from China" LP (in Japan the Sheng is a "Sho") - the record features a modern keyed Sheng - Clint them shows us an actual old style 17 pipe Sheng - the Sheng is the original free reed instrument

Spat talks about being in Bejing recently during the most polluted day on record

Hyla plays track 8 of Toumani Piabate's (sp? my handwriting is horrible here) "The Mandé Variations" performed on Kora

Hyla gives the CD to Clint (it was intended for Kenny but he's not here)

tENT talks about Robert Helps as a pianist & a composer & shows a box-set of Helps playing piano - tENT then plays a record of David del Tredici playing a Helps piano piece that Helps sd was too hard for himself to play - if I remember correctly, del Tredici 1st played it at age 17 - an incredible accomplishment

tENT plays Messiaen's "Eight Preludes" (composed when he was 20!) played by Messiaen's wife Yvonne Loriod - tENT reads Messiaen's color descriptions for the pieces

Hyla plays track 5 of the Disband CD, a group from 1979 to 1982 that tENT finds particularly interesting

Ben leaves but not before tENT gives him a Dinu Ghezzo LP

tENT has 2 other giveaway LPs but no-one will guarantee him that they'll get their turntables working to listen to them so he doesn't give them away

Clint plays Paris Musette comp CD track w/ some fabulous jazz playing on it but no apparent Musette (either listed or audible to this writer)

Hyla plays another Kora track off the CD she gave Clint

Rob talks about a recent extubation experience at work

Clint plays a Punch Borthers bluegrass CD

Rob plays a "totally ordinary trucker song" w/ a great chorus

Hyla, etc, talking about Miley Cyrus Twerking controversy

tENT shows off "the OPEN SPACE magazine" issue 15/16 that he's proud to have his "30 4 5 + 97.9" about John Cage & pirate radio (etc) article in

Rob reads his "Tone Deaf" & "Cushy Set-Up" poems

tENT plays 1st few tracks off Gen Ken Montgomery's "Birds + Machines" CD

Clint + Rob + Hyla + Spat leave at 10:30
