Thanks to Jay Williams for that unsolicited feedback on radiOM.org.
Amongst composers Jay is one of the persons who listens the closest
so this comes as a high compliment.
Are any of the rest of you listening to the recordings we're posting
on radiOM.org? Would like to know what you think.
We are about to double the number of programs available, thanks to
the ongoing restoration work of Fantasy Studios in Berkeley and
engineer Robert Shumaker in Oakland. Thanks also to Bernard Kyle of
the OM staff for directing the project and his colleague at the OM
office Blaine Crowley who are diligently working to get more material
ready. This is an enormous undertaking and hopefully some of you are
benefiting from the work.
To listen, go to http://www.radiOM.org, log in with your email
address and password, and you will be able to hear Elliott Carter,
Morton Feldman, Laurie Anderson, John Cage, and many others
absolutely free while you respond to your daily email.
