The History Of Funk – January 11, 2013 at 10:00pm

this episode is no longer available



No one typifies Devilish music more than Diamanda Galas, an avant vocalist who incorporates the scream as art. We feature Diamanda’s “music” exclusively throughout this whole show, as we learn more about the Devil and His history. For the first time in decades, callers called this show “horrible,” but it isn’t horrible, it’s just difficult listening… Unusual music for unusual listeners.

3 Hours.
