    Turn on, tune in, and take a break from normality. Visit a place where free-form freakouts mingle with meditative moogs, silver screen scores sidle up to radiophonic excursions, and forgotten outsiders play nice around the deep cuts and obcuriousities.
    Every week, I’ll make a pastiche-playlist live n’ on the fly for you, listener, that’ll run the range of known sound (and then some!!).
    I might even welcome a guest into my world from time to time…
