ROGC: The Big Jettison! (last show)
LIVE-mixed webcast re-hash: May 14th, 2006
This was the last live-mix webcast on s&S from the Oakistan studio. over 5 hours long – conveniently broken up into 1 hour chunks because…. well, lets just be reasonable.
This night we released the auxiliary rocket boosters and sand bags, folks.
This was the LAST live webcast show on s&S – at least for a good while. So, it seemed appropriate to needle-drop on highlights from past ROGC shows; say farewell, play some music, too many clips from The Omega Man DVD and whatever else fell into the mix.
Over the last year plus, I took to offering these regular little themed sonic rides … from low-concept to slightly above low-concept – creating the soundtracks of imaginary films on the fly! During that time, this little Sunday ROGC theater offered the improvised likes of vaudville dada-systems; semi stories, wishful documentaries; the sounds of party-favor science films and sometimes even just nice music.
With several varied but themed sources and elements routinely layered at once (via turntables, CD’s, mp3’s, loops, microphoned objects, a synth, sampler, etc…) , sonic terrains and narratives were revealed to me in the same moments as they were to those of you that tuned in for the LIVE webcasts.
Anyway…. if you enjoy any string of these clips & excerpts, please find and pay a listen to the entire original show, they’re all available in the archive! the latter ones have thorough playlist pages, I’ll get to the older ones as time allows.
It’s been a long time coming, but your studio host and the Oakistani catacomb studio will be permanently parting ways soon – I’ll be offing to the opposite side of the sphere to live, work and ideally re-establish a smooth phono-genic link with you all very soon by way of new downloadable, regionally inspired shows – so i hope you’ll pay an ear in time.
Snipping cables and burning receipts is gritty, dirty, time consuming business, so best to discontinue these with some weeks to spare.This is not a disappearing act entirely, as the regular day to day shirley & Spinoza stream will continue – and a new era of s&S radio is poking just around the corner. So, no worries…I hope you’ll stay tuned.
Where to?: returning to Xinjiang, P.R. China – for a good while. There’ll be more info here soon with more details about all that….but here, enjoy a little bit of the past.
-yours in sound & servitude,
-FC (s&S / ROGC/ your crotchety 99 year old intern, etc)

UbRadio: Yak Beer (aka the last Ub show on s&S)
LIVE-webcast: May 7th, 2006
“Our good pal F-yakbeer-sto, most honorable host of Shirley & Spinoza internet radio, will be heading back to “country-X” for a while to pursue his adventures, so we wanted to put together a sort of send-off with our last uB-radio broadcast on s&S as we wish him well and show our appreciation for hosting the uB-radio show for a while. A lot of good times were had at these shows and much camaraderie and creativity was shared. We’re equally as appreciative that F-yakbeer-sto put forth all the great creative energy to help archive them online in their entirety.

M.C. Schmidt & the SGAI New Genres Orchestra:(LIVE Performance!)
LIVE-webcast: April 30th, 2006
This night, M.C. Schmidt (known to most as the pointier half of esteemed 70’s super group MATMOS) descended upon the s&S studio with his current crew of noise students from the San Francisco Art Institute.
For this show, his New Genres Orchestra “6″ class performed & relayed a LIVE, champion collection of original works.
Precision execution indeed! sounds to soothe and exfoliate!
from the Matmos / MC pressmill:
RADIO LIVE TRANSMISSION: M. C. SCHMIDT AND THE NEW GENRES ORCHESTRA
Never underestimate the healing, Muse-protecting power of gainful employment. In M. C. Schmidt’s waking life as an instructor in the New Genres Department of the San Francisco Art Institute, he has been teaching a course called “Sound As Music” this semester. M. C. and his faithful crew have been improvising together, building instruments, and writing and rehearsing new compositions, when they aren’t busy reclining in total darkness on yoga mats and listening to voices, percussion-based music, old synthesizer albums, cut-ups and musique concrete, and general mayhem for hours and hours on end. They are taking a break from this busy schedule of meditation and study to share some of their recordings and to perform live on Shirley and Spinoza Internet radio on Sunday, April 30th at 8 PM.

ROGC: Radio-POST !
LIVE-mixed webcast of snail-mailed sounds:
March 19th, 2006
In this age of instant media beaming & data pushing, there still have been many listener/music-makers out there who took the time to package up some of their home-brew sounds, lick a block of stamps and set a little parcel off to seeks it’s fortune en route to s&S. So for this show, join the Royal Oakland Gramophone Company for a live-mix of listener music – all hand-delivered over the last several months by the real-live postman himself!
Not a focused enough theme, you say? – perhaps not – but here’s to a few “non-virtual journeys” all the same!
