Mark Hosler, Don. (Almost Negativland)

Mark Hosler, founder of Negativland, joins me for an electronics-heavy mix of past and present. Together, we delve into the hip side of the early 60’s with “How To Speak Hip,” and beat poets and ranters like Kerouac, William Borroughs, and Lord Buckley. Jean Shepherd returns on location, covering the ’64 New York World’s Fair for his radio show, nuclear civil defense and discernment, and a few songs to evoke the era.
