An often overlooked version of JIM PEPPER'S 'Witchi-Tai-To' featuring Jim with DON CHERRY, COLIN WALCOTT, and JOHN SCOFIELD is the centerpiece of today's fifth set on TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #262). Surrounding it, music from HP LOVECRAFT, COIL, and more new songs from LUNA, TUNE-YARDS, and LAURIE ANDERSON & KRONOS QUARTET.

Other listening enticements include MONTY PYTHON'S 'Cheese Shop' and two rather interesting versions of FRANK ZAPPA songs, one done by tuba-ist JAY ROSEN and the other from the OMNIBUS WIND ENSEMBLE, RON GEESIN'S banjo meanderings, a traditional bluegrass cover of 'Lazy John' by JAYME STONE and a not so traditional bluegrass cover of AC/DC'S 'Hells Bells' by HAYSEED DIXIE.

Add to all that more NEW acquisitions from DHANI HARRISON, JASON FALKNER & R. STEVIE MOORE, local fave CHRIS BUTLER'S 'Got It Together' release, Irish proggers ZOMBIE PICNIC and Chicago based MARBIN, and other older ditties from THE RESIDENTS, SOFT MACHINE, and NEGATIVLAND and it'll be quite a show indeed!

Hello Friends,
I've sent out notices each week telling you part of the contents of the forthcoming episode of TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES for nearly six years now.

Perhaps music from DUKES OF STRATOSPHEAR, CAMPER VAN BEETHOVEN, WENDY CARLOS' synthesizer rendition of Rossini's 'Thieving Magpie' (from 'A Clockwork Orange'), or the latest from MARBIN, MORGAN DELT, NEIL YOUNG, and THE BREEDERS will entice you to listen to my latest offering (Episode #261).

Or maybe you'll be interested in hearing some 'vault selections' from IVOR CUTLER (reciting 'Sleepy Old Snake'), JEFFERSON AIRPLANE ('Martha'), BE BOP DELUXE ('Life in the Air Age'), SILVER APPLES covering “Mustang Sally,' and BILL FRISELL doing the same with 'Rumble.' There's also selections from KEVIN AYERS, CHARLES MINGUS, HABIB KOITE, DAVID BOWIE, CARNEYBALL JOHNSON, PERE UBU, and PETE TOWNSEND'S Cleveland anthem, 'Sheraton Gibson' all programmed on this show. Below is the program's playlist. Thanks for listening!

Transmusic Airwaves Presents: Fresh Air 'Progressive Radio' January 17, 1980 on WKSU-FM Kent State University with Paul Ciminero

FRESH AIR JANUARY 17, 1980 with Host Paul Ciminero

On this special Podcast today, you'll hear a two hour and fifty six minute segment from the groundbreaking Progressive/alternative college radio program, FRESH AIR, captured on cassette tape from,January 17, 1980.

I was a host on WKSU-FM's "Fresh Air," the late night student run radio program which ran during the heyday of late 70's,early 80's alternative college radio. Today's latest archival tape was restored and remastered by Dr. Woo and is one of now over 500 hours of tapes of this legendary program which originally aired from 1973 until 1981.

Fresh Air was riding a wave of popularity by the date of this tape, promoting concerts, interviewing, and doing 'live' recordings of many of the artists it played at the time. Various features such as the 'Artist of the Week,' Industrial Wasteland' interview program, Reel Live Music, and both the 'Domestic' and 'Import Album Premieres' helped to better educate the audience (and the DJ's as well) as to the styles of music we were playing back then.

On this night I had just replaced former DJ Jim Fisher as the permanent Thursday overnight host so I honored him by playing his weekly segment within his show that he dubbed the 'Whispering Yeast Hour.' It was a quirky set of spoken word, comedy, and somewhat odd ball musical selections so in keeping with the tradition I played Portsmouth Sinfonia, Firesign Theatre, The Residents, Lord Buckley, Lol Coxhill, and of course, The Bonzo Dog Band. The 'Artist of the Week' was Alice Coltrane, so you'll hear several compositions by her throughout the program.

The program begins with the evening's third set, and runs until my replacement DJ arrived at 3:00 am in the morning. Below is a listing of the song sets. Enjoy!

Question:

What do you get when you blend music from THE VENTURES and THE WAITRESSES with Disney melodies interpreted by BUSTER POINDEXTER and LOS LOBOS, 'Prog' from STEVE HACKETT, the jazz crooning of TOM WAITS, resonating strings of ATTACCA QUARTET, and a rock classic by JIMI HENDRIX ?

Answer:
Another great musical equation adding up to this weeks first set on TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #260).
Along with those artists today you'll also hear songs by CAPTAIN BEEFHEART ('Buggy Boogie Boogie'), ROBERT WYATT ('Be Serious') and ANIMAL COLLECTIVE ('Father Time').
Add to that more strings from ALEXANDRE DESPLAT and LAURIE ANDERSON & KRONOS QUARTET as well as electronica from HELIOCENTRICS, LORD RUNNINGCLAM (with KEN NORDINE), and MEAT BEAT MANIFESTO, world beat from ISSA BAGAYOGO and DISSIDENTEN, and NEW album tracks from CALEXICO and THE BREEDERS.

I'll even gather a couple of songs from two '45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition' reissues; the ROXY MUSIC debut and THE VELVET UNDERGROUND'S 'White Light/White Heat.'

The latest edition of TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #259) is here with plenty of cool music from the 'vault,' great jazz, progressive, folk, rock, and soundtracks all blended together for your enjoyment.

From the 'vault' there's the MOTHER'S OF INVENTION'S 'We're Only In It For the Money' (several cuts), and THE BEATLES ( 'Bungalow Bill' from The White Album) both celebrating their 50th anniversary. Other 'vault' goodies include choice cuts by the BONZO DOG BAND, JADE WARRIOR, TUXEDOMOON, and more from ROXY MUSIC'S remaster of their debut with another song from the BBC archives.

There's also jazz from YUSEF LATEEF and JEAN LUC PONTY, progressive music from CHROME and GONG, folk from HOT TUNA and CHRIS THILE, rock from LITTLE FEAT and TY SEGALL, and soundtracks by BERNARD HERMANN and ALEXANDRE DESPLAT.

Put some time aside and give this weeks show a listen!

This week on TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #258) I'll start the program with 'Re-make Re-model' from ROXY MUSIC'S 45th Anniversary remaster of their debut album from a NEW bonus disc recorded on the BBC's 'John Peel' show in April 1972.

Transmusic Airwaves (Episode #257) - 300th Radio Broadcast - March 2, 2018 - with Paul Ciminero (host)
March 01, 2018 06:02 AM PST

Today I'm celebrating a milestone as I've reached my 300th broadcast with this week's TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #257) since returning to radio in 2012. The concept and commitment to bringing great 'freeform' radio programming to friends, fans, and anyone willing to listen continues to evolve from those days back in the late 1960's when I first heard FM underground radio, to my own work as a college DJ doing 'progressive' radio in the 70's, and now coming full circle to where I sit today, with a lifetime worth of music to choose from.

Here's some of the artists you'll hear on today's show. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (JOE BYRD), TOMITA, GONG, PERE UBU, DON CHERRY, THE BEATLES, ENNIO MORRICONE, DEVO, MOONDOG, ENO/CALE, TOM WAITS, THE ROLLING STONES, LOU HARRISON, BE BOP DELUXE, and HECTOR ZAZOU. New releases include more music from SPARKS, LAURIE ANDERSON & KRONOS QUARTET, SPROINGG, and TUNE-YARDS. There are 'covers' by played by FATBOY SLIM (The Who), NEIL MERRYWEATHER (The Byrds), and THE BAD PLUS (Nirvana) and plenty of other surprises along the way.

Transmusic Airwaves (Episode #256) - February 23, 2018 - with Paul Ciminero (host)

During this edition of TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #256) I'll begin the program with a memorial to both TOM RAPP and JOHANN JOHANNSSON who passed away last week and add WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS, MCKENDREE SPRING, THE B-52'S, CHRIS THILE, and more selections from LAURIE ANDERSON & KRONOS QUARTET'S 'Landfall' album to the mix.

Speaking of the 'mix,' part of what makes this program so much fun to produce is how each song segue's throughout the set and there's plenty of 'Ah Ha” moments during the show today. GARY LUCAS, THE RESIDENTS, and THEE OH SEES all provide similar chord structures during one segment, while THE WAITRESSES, AVETT BROTHERS, BJORK, KAITLYN AURELIA SMITH, CHRIS SQUIRE, and MONKS OF DOOM all add their 'keys' to another. And where else can you find a sequence with PETE SEEGER (playing Beethoven's 9th on banjo), THE RED ARMY ENSEMBLE, PINK MARTINI, and KEVIN AYERS all clamoring for your attention?
