Righteous Ones part 2
Tuesday Mayhem 30 2PM-6PM
Hosted by Alizarin Crim and Milo Minderbender

The Tzadik record label was founded by composer/producer/saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist John Zorn in 1995, and showcases avant-garde and experimental music. Tzadik is Hebrew for 'righteous one', a title that perhaps fittingly describes the label?s approach to releases. The Tzadik catalog contains an amazing variety of sounds, instrumentation, and approaches to the production of contemporary music. What is experimental music? There may be no definitive answer, but Righteous Ones will lend some perspective on how Tzadik has shaped the landscape of the genre over that past two decades.

There are collectors, and then there are?. COLLECTORS. Miles Goodrich, co-editor of the Hungry Freaks zine (Mayhem 2014) is a collector of many things extraordinary, especially recorded sound. His true passion for records of unique and obscure quality astounds the ear and eye. Join Naysayer as we chat with and listen to Miles as he plays some of his collection of rare soundtracks, one of a kind soul sounds, odd foreign releases, original jazz recordings and so much more.

Day of Dub
Sunday Junehem 4 12AM Sun-12AM Mon
Hosted by Ras Babo and a cast of others

When Jamaican record labels first released 7? singles, the A-side was typically the vocal track and the B-side was the instrumental version, also called the Dub. Producers like King Tubby, Scientist, and Lee Perry to name only a few, then remixed these dub tracks, adding effects and dropping parts of the songs in and out to create a spacy vibe transporting the listener far beyond that original vocal version. The remixed Dub Version became an art form unto itself and is still deeply entranched in the way tracks are remixed to this day.

Day of Dub celebrates this musical style by playing 24 hours of dub music, from traditional reggae rhythms to more modern musical cross-over styles. A consortium of KFJC personalities will offer their take on what is Dub.

Country Songwriter Series: Townes Van Zandt
Monday Junehem 5 10AM-2PM
Hosted by Sally Goodin

Townes Van Zandt (1944-1997) was born in Fort Worth to a prominent Texas family. Inspired by seeing Elvis Presley on television in 1956, he got a guitar that Christmas. He was a good student, active in sports, and his family started grooming him to become a lawyer or senator. He went to college in 1962, but by 1964 his parents had brought him home, due to his binge drinking and fits of depression. He was diagnosed as manic-depressive, and received 3 months of the now discredited Insulin Shock Therapy, which wiped out his long term memory.

In 1965 Townes began playing shows in Houston. He started writing his own songs, and moved to Nashville in 1968. Between 1968 and 1979, he released 8 albums. Despite critical acclaim, he remained a cult figure, playing small venues, and living a reclusive life in a shack outside of Nashville.

Townes struggled with drug and alcohol addiction all his adult life, going into rehab but never staying sober for long. Yet in spite of this, he is considered a "songwriter's songwriter" and his songs a source of inspiration and comfort for many.

This program features his songs, sung by him and others.
