The s & S Archive is where you can find streamable/downloadable archive info & audio files of past live shows. While hardly every single show ever done is represented here (it’s a slow process to get the oldest ones up), there are still days if not weeks of continuous listening available within. These include, live music & sound performances, live collage mixes, guests, noise, vintage s&S, and even a few mystery bonuses!

so, go go go… go and find out more by clicking on the image above, below or the usual Archive link in the sidebar!

Dear Shirley and Spinoza,you have been keeping me the most perfect company for the past month,during a creative process, for over 19 hours a day .My friend and colleague, great Greek artist, Pantelis Pantelopoulos spoke to me of you.
I find your choice of Music and word, Inspiring, empowering, educational.
Thank u from Athens Greece, Alexia Vassiliou{singer,composer,lyricist}

Comment on September 9th, 2008.

I have been listening to this radio station for about three years, and it is a huge source of inspiration and amazing humor!

I love it!

Thanks for your inspirational work. Remember, Jesus loves you (or at least THINKS he does)


Comment on February 20th, 2009.

Shirley & Spinoza is World Cultural Heritage! Never ever stop polluting air with waves so magnificent!!!!


Comment on March 16th, 2009.

the station would be better if you played some foreigner or more top forty.


Comment on March 17th, 2009.

Here is my comment. Please feel free to use it for any purpose, public or private.


Comment on April 29th, 2009.

I laugh and love you sooooo much !


Comment on May 1st, 2009.

what a relief, to know that it wont matter that much, if one day my harddrive with all my audio dies … since there will still be SHIRLEY & SPINOZA


Comment on May 29th, 2009.

Zod Approves!


Comment on June 13th, 2009.

i’ve been listening for 5 days and still no “Yolk, as in egg” Speak-n-Spell duet. What gives?


Comment on June 15th, 2009.

are you guys still making live shows?? I sure hope to hear some realtime live sunday shows….

Greeting to all of you from holland


Comment on June 22nd, 2009.

@ Weesh, thanks for the avid ear! – Texas Instruments (makers of Speak & Spell) threatened to sue the hat, vest & pants off of us for unlicensed use of their trademark. So, we just play it at night when they (and you?) are asleep. Apologies. Stay tuned.

@ christafrix – being behind the great f*rewall of China the last years, “us guys” have a hard time sharing live, realtime shows with any reliability.. all the tests have been hit or miss. New shows are set to return soon, and while they will be created live, they will most likely be posted here as downloads. The Remote Operator is thinking of you, never fear.


Comment on August 12th, 2009.

I though you guys were dead long ago, anyways glad your back, tuning in….


Comment on August 12th, 2009.

@moldy – “I thought you were dead” is my favorite kind of compliment. Thanks! s&S is a hobby project after all. I wish it weren’t so, but sometimes other responsibilities have to take center stage for a while. Thanks for the ear and stay tuned for more very soon.


Comment on September 3rd, 2009.

I laugh and love you sooooo much !;…


Comment on September 4th, 2009.

Fausto! How’s it hanging?
Just to let you know, your presence in our virtual wonderland ‘Curious Inc.’ in SecondLife has not gone unmarked! People often ask me ‘What is this strange nonsense on the airwaves??’
Good times. I’m thinking of putting up some promotional posters. Keep on keepin’ on!


Comment on October 7th, 2009.

Good noise, thank you very much.


Comment on October 12th, 2009.

please live shows again!


Comment on November 2nd, 2009.

this is probably awesome! Thumbs up!


Comment on November 6th, 2009.

Simply imperfect, that’s why you are perfect!

To Fausto and the Wolf – Preparing to go to the land that would rather never have spawned chomsky and folks of your ilk, so S&s will be my mind medicine innoculating me against going mental below the mason-dixon line. Thanks ya’ll!! Yeehaw…


Comment on February 1st, 2010.

moin it was great radio weekend
im just a livetime DJ and sound junkyyyyy!
how much persons made the musik from friday28.1.10 till 31.10.10
kan i have email adresses from the artists for booking them to make partys and other great fucking propeller musik and have a lot of fun :-)
pleas contactz me on replay1@gmx.net
thanks for thinking of futur
by artist of all areas


Comment on February 11th, 2010.

@alex: I’m afraid I can’t answer questions like “what played 28/1/10 till 31/1/10?” since what you are hearing is mostly automated and the range of time zones involved, depending on where you are listening from, makes such questions a little confusing. It’s better to ask via the CONTACT page while including a copy-and-pasted ‘recent history list’ that you will find on this page: http://compound-eye.org/currently/
additionally, If I (remote operator) happen to be online, you can also use the NEW *live chat* feature on that same page to ask anything and get a response in real-time.

from the s&S CHATTERBOX:
TomTheBaker: Times sure have changed. Used to be we’d do a show by getting together in the same little KCIA radio booth with shopping carts loaded up with records. Now, the whole operation’s moved overseas and we’re typing into these little text boxes to make our requests. Well, here’s my request: more independently produced radio dramas. Where’s the commander and LIMN these days?
plasticbrain: More math answers. Thank you.
Serena: What a gem! I just learned about you tonight Finally, something I can turn on and leave on all day without getting bored
orbus: Say, remoteoperator. Suppose it’s your birthday. Someone gives you a calfskin wallet. How do you react?
Nightride: I’m kinda smitten. Thanks for being you.
LN: Hello, I just want to say that I love this station and I’m so glad that I walked into Subrosa in Santa Cruz at just the right time to hear them playing this in the cafe. <3 Happily Exposed.
EmorDniLap: S&S radio has been my #1 streaming station for years now, right behind WFMU!!! Love you, always change, never stay the same!

U R BEST !!!


Comment on September 3rd, 2011.

Das ist ja wohl das Ungewöhnlichste, was mir zu Ohren gekommen ist. Die Adresse ist schon als Lesezeichen gesetzt, wenn andere Sender nur dudeln, dann seid Ihr dran. Die Auswahl ist gut, um Nachbarn im Garten zu ärgern.


Comment on March 26th, 2012.

Why no more comments? I LOVE YOU, Shirley & Spinoza, only girlfriend I will marry for the rest of my life.

Shirley and Spinoza keeps my coffee warm.

The random injection of sound sometimes I let play through a very efficient microphone. It’s that good.

Pretty soon, we won’t even be able to look you guys up on the Internet!

Wir möchten für eine hervorragende, erstklassige Internet Radio Kunst Kanal, die wirklich erweitert die Möglichkeiten des menschlichen Geistes, um das Niveau und die Herausforderungen, dass die Zukunft setzt, um unser begrenzter Verstand erreichen basierend auf streng definierten Kategorien unbekannt für den weiten Ozean von humanen cosciousness zu gratulieren. So thanks.


Comment on June 30th, 2012.

this is te kek yo!
keep on doing what you do, i love it!


Comment on November 9th, 2013.

Been a fan since… maybe ’99? Started listening on my old bondi blue Yosemite G3. You have got to be one of the oldest radio stations on the tubes at this point. Keep it up. If you die, please make sure the feed is set to repeat first.


Comment on December 13th, 2013.

wish I could have this music embedded in my head… actually, I guess it is. Thanks for this gift and for yximillo, the notable wobbly, PLU, ECC, stock, hausen and walkman, leadbelly…etc.

I only wish you had a gift shop where I could buy this music (if it’s not on FMA)

A bit of KMPX 1967 midnight – 6 AM …. 24 hours a day. Nostalgic and new.. Hardly normal.. Thank you, bless you!


Comment on June 30th, 2015.

You are my favorite radio.

Through your stream I found out and discover the greatest bands i’ve never heard before. Keep doing it, please.

With love from Ukraine.

Fast 400 Millionen für ein interessantes Immoobjekt in Südfrankreich namens Palais Bulles und ihr spielt hier blödsinnige Versionen von Geräuschen. Wie kann man nur so gelangweilt sein!
Mit trunkenen liebevollen Grüßen


Comment on October 27th, 2017.

Fausto? Fausto? Mr. Remote Operator? Are you there? So glad the stream is still going. Amazing! I had a hankering for some Spinoza and there it still was, churning the best set of collaged and concatenated audio bits bouncing around this planet. A good friend went to junior high with Vint Cerf, so that naturally led me to think of Dave, then Fausto and S&S, and then this webhole.Yeah!
