Buoy & Bellow
2 - 4 PM Sundays
DJ Dusty Mantle
Program Description: What happens when a buoy bellows; or, when a bellow is buoyed? In this show, Domenica and DJ Dusty Mantle will attempt to answer these and many other questions, through a mix of music and discussion. Musically we cover the obscurity of edges demarcating musical genres. From the avant to pop and all of the wonderful permutations of dissonance between. We cherish the challenging and sublimely pleasurable.
And buoys. And bellows. And strange words, of the prolix variety, like prolix.

Hey folks! I've scored a righteous showcase of new works soon to be released on experimental cassette label 'Alterity 101'.
Curated by the infamous Kurt Alterity, we'll be hearing works from the upcoming first releases by R Millis (Climax Golden Twins & Sublime Frequencies)!
From Rob: "I am generally my own worst scavenger. Compositions get re-worked and recycled with alarming frequency. "AK Duet" was put together from various officially released Climax Golden and r millis solo sources (exactly which ones would be telling) for choreography by Aiko Kinoshita for a dance piece entitled "Little Hungers" that premiered in Seattle in 2011. "Murung Field Wreck" is a series of field recordings made in various Asian locations remixed with a piece that will appear or already has appeared (depending on which universe you are in) on an r millis solo LP called "Relief" on the Helen Scarsdale label. "Orchlabreapourmoi" is a mix of several unmentionable Climax, stolen and solo sources. "Drift Away" was composed for a short film by Jean Julien Pous called…Drift Away. This is a slight re-working of the original composition. Most of these pieces were created for use in live performances."
The tape will not be released for a couple months. This will be the public's first chance to hear it. After that we will hear tapes of upcoming Alterity 101 contributors past works with a few surprises... Kurt told me he's bringing a bunch of cassette decks, things should get weird!
TUNE IN at 8pm this Sunday, Jan 13 for the mind bender!

What is Low Power FM? A User's Guide.
According to Wikipedia, "Low Power FM, or LPFM is a form of FM Broadcasting that uses a low amount of energy to broadcast a signal that does not travel very far. FM, or frequency modulation radio is often transmitted on a higher frequency than AM radio. Because of the low power usage and short range, LPFM is often seen as a niche radio station that plays things that relate more to the small surrounding community."
Low Power FM radio stations are generally community radio stations, and dispense information relevant to the surrounding geographical area that you wouldn't hear on High Power FM Stations. LPFM stations do the following, according to Freepress.net:
- It strengthens community identity.
- It creates an outlet for amateur musicians to get their music heard.
- It creates diversity on the air because women and racial minorities are represented.
- It creates an opportunity for young people, especially college students, who are interested in radio to learn about the business.
- It provides farmers with up to date agricultural information.
Want to learn more about the potential for a LPFM community station in Seattle or your community?
There will be an information session on how to apply for a LPFM license in Seattle on Thursday, January 24th at the Langston Hughes Cultural Center at 1 p.m. To RSVP: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/302076
