This week’s episode contains a longer than usual message from my friend Joel.
For Mother’s Day, purely by coincidence, I have a message from my mom. It is her third message.
In this week’s message I talk about going to see Edward Wilkerson’s Eight Bold Souls at Salon of Modalisque and Hal Russell’s NRG Ensemble at Lower Links in September of 1988. Modalisque was owned by Marguerite Horberg, who later opened HotHouse.
This week we here a song from Chris Pearson, fellow member of folk/punk/noise band Open Sauce.
This week I describe going to see Sun Ra and his Arkestra at the 1988 Chicago Jazz Festival. I draw upon the research of Graham Lock and Paul Youngquist to contextualize the outer space philosophy of the man from Saturn.
