Beskrivning:
A group built around Allen Ginsberg, Moondog, Ornette Coleman, radiating everywhere. Needed name: turns out all 3 were part of a 1966 film, "Chappaqua" (as "Messiah," "The Prophet," & "Peyote Eater").

The connections may be unexpected... ended up with less spoken word and jazz than I expected, and a lot more avant-garde and late classical, noise & drone, and quite a bit of New Weird America. What the artists seem to have in common is that they are not afraid to go out on a limb, to take the risk of abject failure, to be misunderstood or even reviled. Each artist here creates distinctive sounds and occupies previously uninhabited artistic territory.

    OK! Radio went from 399 to 491 with the new connections, and I added 49 similar artists to top it off at 540. You can see the full lineup at aHowl's library, the source of the radio.

    By the way, if you read the connections from the top down (newest to oldest), the first 102, from Edna St. Vincent Millay down to Silver Apples, are the additions, and the remainder, beginning with Bill Dixon all the way down to Allen Ginsberg are the 98 holdovers.

    The biennial reorganization of connections is complete! Generally speaking, the turnaround for one of these things is about one third of the connections, or somewhere in the range 60-75, but this was more extensive: just over half, fully 102 of the 200 connections replaced by others. The Hawaiian and rockabilly strains are gone, and the new group, by and large, hews more closely to the three artists who spark the group: more poets, more jazz artists, more early experimental music. There is also a significant expansion of symphonic and other classical music. As always, the deleted connections remain on the Artist Radio, which will expand with the addition of the new connections (some of which may already be part of the lineup), and a dollop of similar artists added to round things out. I will be back when the radio expansion is complete. Enjoy!

    Reorganization is complete for Professor Longhair. The turnover was quite high: 106 of the 200 artists in the connections were replaced, and the music became even more strongly influenced by artists known mainly in New Orleans and less familiar to the rest of the country and the world. After the new connections, there were 503 artists on the Artist Radio (as always, dropped connections remain on the radio), after which I added another 43 related artists to round it off at 550 artists. To see the lineup, check ProfessLonghair's library. Enjoy!

    Radio is complete, and now boasts a full 400 artists... a mix you won't find anywhere else, I can safely say. Beyond that, you be the judge!

    Connections are complete! Radio is next. More jazz, more spoken word, and a few strange offshoots due to things like "The Pineapple Express" which made the jump from Moondog to Hawaiian music and introduced a whole slack-key thread, and Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour: Baseball, which caused Ferlinghetti to link to Joe Darling and others who started a rockabilly thread. All part of the delicious messiness of life!

    Greetings Miss Gina! I've sent radio instructions which I hope you'll find helpful... and no, you are definitely not "too blonde"! You are exactly blonde enough... Don't change a thing!
