SHIRLEY & SPINOZA RADIO [RIAFC 053]

A wild and unruly assortment of segments from the archives of Shirley & Spinoza Radio – helicopters; Iranian flute music and drum machines; confused tourists and Japanese folk; a warbled cassette from a dusty Kashgar bazaar; a clip from the 1970s television series Kung Fu; Thai molam; cicadas; Uyghur pop; shortwave radio; wolves; a beggar lady’s song recorded in an oasis town; Chinese radio commercials and urban soundscapes; carrier pigeons equipped with droning whistles; Mongolian throat singing; and more. Many thanks to Fausto Caceres for his fearless and inspiring exploration of both forgotten and new ways of making radio.
