This first program of 2011 definitely had an experimental edge to it. I didn't quite plan things this way but I ended up playing a fair number of pieces that could be labelled "experimental music" in some way or other. And I fit in the Ramones' appearance on the Simpsons plus started things off with a recording of an exorcism (from Eno and Byrne's freaky "The jezebel spirt"). This all sounds good to me.

I will be away for the next two shows, January 10 and 17, 2011. Breaking The Tethers will still take place, with a fill-in host or hosts (I'm not sure who will be I will return to the air for the January 24 edition, which will feature a live performance by Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk (who I played today).
