celebrate Sainkho

vocalist Sainkho Namchylak turned 50 this month and we're gonna celebrate her sounds tonite
we'll go back to her classic solo on FMP, where I first discovered her remarkable talent for blending ancient Tuvan throat singing with contemporary vocal improvisation
and dip into her two recent Leo releases
one of which is a Tuvan-Irish collaboration w/ Roy Carroll on electronics
and the other of which compiles examples of her genre nomadicity: from folk singing to free improv
And if this weren't enough, we're also going to rattle some tracks off of Elisabeth Flunger's gorgeous disc "Songs" - 24 solos for metal trash instruments.  
All this on from 21:00-22:30 PST Thursday
It's a radio show called The Unwrinkled Ear
don't slip on the lobster!

Telling the Difference b/t Poetry and Spam

It's hard. I'd say that 'appreciating unfinishity' is poetry.
But in the subject line of an email it sounds like spam.
I never would have thought that contemporary poetry and the basest of marketing campaigns could grow so independently and yet so synonomously
In any case, The Unwrinkled Ear is BACK on the radio switch tonite
from 21:00-22:30 Pacific Coast Time
tune in on
We'll jam on Sidsel Endresen's incredible new solo voice album "One" as she takes on "velocity and desensification"
we'll see what the NDR big band has been up to Pata-Music-wise inside Norbert Stein's recent composition/ conductions
I really need a thick lathering of something off the Sten Sandell trio's latest: "Oval"
Give a fruit bark and plum yourself in the orchard on the way
Also, The Unwrinkled Ear's mailing address has changed, so if that affects you, please let me know.
(archives always available at - search for "unwrinkled")

Radio is a drinking clock

We've got a traditional Paul Bunyan scenario tonite on The Unwrinkled Ear:
a vinyl /|\  digital showdown 
We're gonna borrow KXLU's Mitchell Brown and his melonrecord-wheeled organism
and he's gonna pull the vinyl cords
and The Unwrinkled Ear will dress digital gal gel
21:00-22:30 Thursday Hollywoodtime in Koreatown
