Ending the week by returning to the artist with which we started the week: a record of live performance material from guitarist Richard Pinhas, and Merzbow. In the last 15 minutes we cleaned up with a short excerpt from David Stubbs' book "Fear of Music", complementing the first half of Cabaret Voltaire's 1979 performance at the Y. M. C. A., or an exploration into the basics of "post-punk".

First of a 3-part series on the 3 portrait operas of Philip Glass. We heard the 1993 recording of "Einstein on the Beach," plus contextual information on Glass, Robert Wilson, Christopher Knowles, Albert Einstein, and Mr. Bojangles (also Jerry Jeff Walker, by extension), and excerpts of the libretto/Christopher Knowles' poetry and of Thomas Pynchon's "Gravity's Rainbow." Nina Simone closed the show with a sultry rendition of "Mr. Bojangles."

Look out for the 2012 Pomegranate-arts revival of "Einstein on the Beach!"
