1987-12-09 Dark Wednesday

NegativlandCover of NegativlandNot a lot of sunlight in these northern climes, and I am not sure that Jim and Tammy Bakker will shed much light on the situation. But, they are a great mix with some real industrial music. Robert Tilton drops in as well. There is something about industrial music and television evangelism. Oh, and Sister Susan's Astronautica is on the beginning of the show, and I love it when she says, "Tune Tuna in again then, use a radio if you have to."

Music included: Controlled Bleeding, Nocturnal Emissions, Hafler Trio, Blackhouse, Patsy Cline, Frisco Komonoff, Vicky Love, Negativland, Minimal Compact, Missing Brazilians, Renaldo and the Loaf, Zoviet France, Hunting Lodge, and a lot more.

Free Angel Tears Creative CommonsImage by Pink Sherbet Photography via FlickrDarker, sadder, more spacious than most progams.

Pope Clement IImage via WikipediaPapal news and words in the electromagnetic medium made me do this. Not very papal as I scan it now, but fairly entertaining in a proto-industrial way.

Music included: PGR, Acoustic Iatrogenesis, Throbbing Gristle, Hula, Chrome, Test Department, Severed Heads, Sympathy Nervous, Hunting Lodge, Genesis P. Orridge and a lot more.

1986-07-30 Infatuation

MerzbowCover of MerzbowInfatuated with what? Why infatuated with sounds and electromagnetic beams that can influence the thoughts and feelings of innocent people, of course. Just another alternative music selection for a Wednesday, another day at the office for me.

I really like the beginning, a program ID from my then 8 year old daughter, Sarah Jane.

Music included: Commodity Fetish, Merzbow, SPK, Grechtikeits Liga, Hula, Chrome, Mnemonists.

1986-04-09 One True Radio Studio

Zetti collage sheetImage by angellea via FlickrThis episode of One True Radio inolved a lot of patching together of various noises and sounds, both by myself and by various artists whose work I have discovered. No play list exists for this show.

This seems to be a lot of dark ambient collage.
"Dark ambient is a subgenre of ambient music that features foreboding, ominous, or discordant overtones. Although it had its roots in the 1970s, Dark ambient emerged in the 1980s and 1990s[citation needed] with the introduction of newer, smaller, and more affordable Effects units, synthesizer and sampling technology. Dark ambient is an unusually diverse genre, related to industrial music, noise, ethereal wave, and black metal, yet generally free from derivatives and connections to other genres or styles." Wikipedia

BUT, this sampling also includes a lot of voices, sound effects and other snippets from a wide variety of sources.

The show does not start until a few minutes in, so do not be deceived.

1986-02-05 Industrial One True Radio

Re/Search #6/7: Industrial Culture HandbookImage via WikipediaOne True Radio was a sign up show at WRUV for many years where people would do the unusual. Here are the first 90 minutes of one show that I did in 1986 that featured "industrial music." I begin by giving a definition of this genre and then set about to play some of it.

Music included: Art Barbecue, Halfler Trio, 93 Current 93, Coil, Test Department, Hula, Etantes Donnes, Controlld Bleeding, Flagellants, Einsturzende Neubauten, El Topo, Chrome, Severed Heads,  and a lot more.

mensch und maschineImage by dolcedo via FlickrThere are diffefrences, but they are narrowing. That is this week's theme, but it plays itself out in both subtle and not so subtle ways.

1985-12-04 Reach for N

General StrikeImage by StephenZacharias via FlickrThis will forever remind me of Steve Dolley, debate coach at the time and star of "Hour of the Wolf News" on WRUV, as he would often (randomly say) "Reach for N." Of course, then there was a song of that title, and the idea for the program took off. A nice mix of interesting stuff here. I am not sure of the claim at the end of the show that anybody who sits through this for 90 minutes "must be sick," because I just did and rather liked it. But then, that may, in itself, prove the claim.

Artists include: Propaganda, Art of Noise, Andrew Poppy, Blaine L. Reininger, Durutti Column, John Fahey, Tuxedomoon, Tangerine Dream, Phantom Captain, Voice of Authority, Skinny Puppy, SPK, Cabaret Voltaire, SHop Assistants, Copernicus, Bauhaus, Joy Division, General Strike ("Reach for N") and a lot more.
