this episode is no longer available

We begin by emphasizing silence with a long sound check on the air as I turn everything off and try to figure out where my buzz is coming from with help from some callers. Frustration rules. Finally, buzz still in tow, we begin a mix characterized by twisted jazz as Leonard
Bernstein lectures on the working elements of untwisted jazz, Spike Jones makes a mockery of music in brand new Hi-Fi, the hip are hoppin,’ some dads are boppin, and how it all works inside our brains as vibratiing air becomes music in our heads.
3 Hours.
