My buddies Scott Turner, Scott Ruof, and I have recently made a habit of tuning in to Star’s End together every week, hanging out in a chat room while we listen and chit chat to the music. It’s a great way to end our Saturday evenings. Unfortunately, we discovered yesterday that Star’s End has been preempted by some undefined special programming put on by WXPN:
Now, don’t get me wrong — I’m a big fan of WXPN. In fact, I’m a member, even though I don’t live remotely near their broadcast area, just because they host Chuck’s program. But we were seriously bummed! What to do on a Saturday night late when we are jonesing to listen to some ambient music?
The answer is clear: I have to lead a pirate raid! Arrrrrr. So, tonight starting at 10p US Pacific Time / 1a US Eastern Time (the same time slot as Star’s End), I will be doing an impromptu radio program on RadioSpiral. Tonight I’ll be spinning unreleased Copal River music, stuff that I promise you’ve never heard before. These are either live jams that Scott Turner and I performed, either on-air or out at his beautiful lakeside retreat, or are unreleased studio tracks that have not yet found their way onto an album, one way or another. Should be great fun, and I hope you join us for this pirate raid …
If you’ve never tuned into Star’s End, by the way, it’s essential listening for anyone who loves ambient space music in all its forms. And Chuck van Zyl is a quality human being who has done more for the genre and for ambient artists than just about anyone. Highly recommended.
