NCN and Puzzling Evidence - Gods and Monsters
October 18, 2016
From a show done for 'Crack of Dawn' on October 7th, 2016 at KPFA in Berkeley with Puzzling Evidence (Doug Wellman) and Dr. Hal (Harry S. Robins) in the studio. With remixes of humorous religious pieces as well as remixed excerpts from the 1963 LP "Famous Monsters Speak!" this mix of mixes includes long, dense spooky Halloween-worthy sequences, take-offs on cults, "God(s)" and religious dogma, as well as political material including at least a couple of post-added Donald Trump remixes (the Trump-centric 'PussyGate' scandal erupted the day after the program was broadcast). This program has been re-worked since the original broadcast version and is a 'Narco Mix' of the program. With work by Unforgiven, Placeboing, Mad Genius, Contemporary Casuals, Matt McCorkle, and Solar Wimp amongst others. - A nearly 5 hour show in all.

NCN - Growing Up
August 26, 2016
The Definitive version of this mix, originally webcast on Plundercast and DFM on August 21st, 2016. An audio time-capsule of sorts made up of current voices, and electronically spoken text, from around the web on the subject of adulthood. It is comprised of many clips, samples, music and songs all about coming of age and growing up. With a leitmotif of Neil Young's 'Heart of Gold' and work by NCN, OneTwoOneTwo, Demarest, King Missile, Don Joyce, The Former Yugoslavia, The Pussycat Dolls, Ronald Redball, Alexander T. Newport, Essays by Phineas Narco, Joseph Campbell, much from David Richo (author of the excellent 'How to Be an Adult in Relationships') and many, many more. When this was originally webcast it was about 80% done we realized afterwards. It is now fixed, and complete. This program is a little bit better than the Mixcloud version as some audio mixing mistakes have been fixed. - A 3 hour program.

NCN - Fapcore 2016
April 04, 2016
Note--Subject matter, and some language may be NSFW. Listener Discretion Advised. NCN invites you to get a grip, as you rock out with your... headphones ON while listening to this sonically risque' radio ride. Yes, a new show all about... THAT. Kind of a taboo subject, but well, hell when has that ever stopped us? A companion piece to NCN - Bootycore 2014, this program was originally webcast on March 20th, 2016--to about a dozen people--and hosted by (the late) James Mason, and features a wide variety of musical remixes and comedic treatments about humanity's favorite solitary pastime. An attempt to normalize an increasingly relevant cultural topic, in a hopefully tasteful and entertaining manner, by providing a cultural overview of its various treatments in music and comedy. A 3-hour semi-psychedelic 'syntopical' mix.

NCN - An Interesting Show About Boredom
February 25, 2016
Webcast on January 21st, 2016 on Plundercast and DFM out of Amsterdam - A show all about the universally undesired state of boredom: ennui, malaise, doldrums, 'blues', call it what you will--an exploration to find out what causes it, represent the current cultural conversation about it, and discover what (if anything) should be done about it. It's actually an INTRIGUING SUBJECT as it turns out: something found extensively in popular culture as well as psychological and philosophical studies. Re-contextualized examples, song clips, samples and effects, pour forth in this 3-hour psychedelic and hyper-edited collage treatment of the subject. Adapted from a less-developed 2011 program (boringly titled 'Deconstructing Boredom'), this jazzed up redux asks the question: Is boredom a mental quagmire, or a doorway to peace and ultimately an opportunity for existential enlightenment? Includes work from FU2, Contemporary Casuals, Supercut, Stylust Beats, The Bonzo Dog Band, 10th Dimension, many many more!

NCN - The Peter Gabriel Remix Project
February 10, 2016
Webcast on January 31st, 2016--Continuing in our tributes to musical 'Heroes' such as David Bowie a couple of weeks ago: this is a moving, heartfelt tribute and synthesized collection of different styles and genres: interpretations of Peter Gabriel's work in the form of mashups, remixes, covers and variations. Most of us have heard his original songs, but this program explores influences and inspirations of former Genesis lead and solo artist extraordinare: Peter Gabriel in these effectively de-facto collaborations with other artists who have taken that work and done interesting things with it. The Peter Gabriel Remix Project is a 'Best Of' compilation of obscure ephemeral rarities, DIY interpretations, versions, mixes, interview clips, and overall variations on Peter Gabriel's music in order to show the scope, breadth and influence of his life's ( so far ) work. From his departure from the rock band Genesis in the 70's to his solo work, collaborations and politically-minded work, his activism and beyond it's all covered here - A 3 hour collage mix / tribute. Best if heard with headphones!

Some post-production work has been done to edit this down from 7 to 6 hours, fix transitions and occasional redundancies, dead air, etc. Includes material from 'Mad or Bad', 'Man Up', 'Blurred Versions' and many, many other shows we did in 2015, including material that came out of our housing crisis as well as pieces having to do with the news events of 2015.

NCN - Daddy Issues
December 29, 2015
A show for everyone with a father! Around the family holiday season comes a mix that was first played on 11/20/11 on Plundercast and DFM about issues that spring up between fathers and their kids (especially sons) and... a situation we can all understand: 'Daddy Issues'--who do we know who doesn't have them? Even daddies! A creative collage mix of instances in popular and not-so-popular culture in which the subject is dealt with and explored. Mutated music clips from the likes of Johnny Cash, Pink Floyd, Cat Stevens, The Nice, Harry Chapin, Linkin Park, movies like The Great Santini (1979) and A Boy's Life (1993) and remixed comedy from Kids in the Hall, George Carlin and Mr. Show and many others. Get an extra hankie for this one. One of the most moving show's we've done (IMHO).
