Hosted by Skokiaan Guy and Ann Arbor
KMPX and KSAN were a 1960's radio phenomenon . It was a sound, a community and a vital part of life in San Francisco at that time. Thanks to Tom Donahue and his staff, who were unafraid to step outside the box of radio as it had been, a new way of doing radio was born. We'll visit with some of the people who were a part of Donahue's KSAN staff, play the music that made them famous, and offer some new perspectives on what it all meant at the time, and what it still means today.

Lost in the Ozone Again: Commander Cody's Lost Planet Airmen

Wednesday Mayhem 19th 7:PM to 10:PM
Lost in the Ozone Again: Commander Cody?s Lost Planet Airmen
Hosted by Art Crimes
Everyone knows about Detroit legends like the MC5 and Iggy Pop, kicking out the jams and making rock a contact sport. But around the same time in Ann Arbor, artist George Frayne christened himself Commander Cody and created his own twisted world of western swing, rockabilly, truckdriver songs, and salutes to substance abuse. After relocating to San Francisco in 1969, Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen became a fixture in the ballrooms and nightclubs. They were defiantly un-psychedelic in the Summer of Love. Although best known for their two actual hits, "Hot Rod Lincoln" and "Don't Let Go", the band never got the rewards they may have anticipated as hard-workin' rock stars. Eventually they reached the end of their road after a European tour. Most of the original members have moved on, some still playing clubs for a small-but-devoted following, but for awhile Cody's Airmen were among San Francisco's hidden treasures for those lucky enough to have seen them in the 70s. We'll hear a sampling of live and studio material, starting from 1970 and up to their last Warner Brothers release.

The Musical Mayhem of Billy May

Thursday Mayhem 20th 10:AM to 2:PM
The Musical Mayhem of Billy May
Hosted by Dave Richoux
From "This Is the Wrong Idea" (a.k.a. "Swing and Sweat With Charlie Barnett") in the 1940s through his own big band in the 1950s and beyond, Billy May has composed and arranged many hundreds of outstanding works of music in many different forms. With Humor, Skill, and Adventurous Excitement, the late Billy May was both a sung and unsung hero of American Popular Music. This will be a roughly chronological presentation featuring hits and obscurities from this prolific composer.

Robert Wyatt: Machines, Moles, and Mao

Tuesday Mayhem 25th 7:PM to midnight
Robert Wyatt: Machines, Moles, and Mao
Hosted by Max Level and Art Crimes
Robert Wyatt has outlasted many of his companions from those psychedelic days in London, when Soft Machine was constantly gigging at UFO with the likes of the Syd-era Pink Floyd. But a drunken tumble out of a window ended his drumming career, leading to his reinvention as a singer, songwriter and creative magnet for the luminaries that have happily worked with him in the last 20 years, folks like Elvis Costello, Nick Mason, Brian Eno and Paul Weller. Wyatt has graced the charts once or twice with other people's songs, but his own compositions, written with his wife Alfie, are unmatched for their sensitivity and originality. With music and interviews, Max Level and Art Crimes will take you back to Swinging London with Soft Machine, play politics with Matching Mole, hang out with jazz heavyweights like Carla Bley, and bring you up to speed on Wyatt's solo career, including his latest release, Cuckooland.

A live performance: Electronic music, mainly making use of computer software (either other people's or, more recently, his own SuperCollider programs) to manipulate samples into new forms.

The focus is on projects that offer people with severe disabilities the opportunity to write, play and experiment with music. Far from trying to cover up their disabilities, groups such as The Kids of Widney High and Special Music by Special People embrace and incorporate their life with disabilities in their lyrics and performances. We'll include fresh tracks by the How's Your News Band plus cuts from Dancing Tree's, Children of Ala Costa. Plus demos, live cuts and interviews if the Title I funding comes through.
