NCN - They're Coming to Shoot JFK, Ha Haa!
November 30, 2015
This was originally played on the 52nd anniversary of the JFK assassination: November 22nd, 2015 to about 15 people between and out of Amsterdam and it was well-received. It is a bit of a 'best of' Puzzling Evidence retrospective borrowing material from the 2011 Special we did on The Puzzling Evidence Show including live mixed collages and song as well as monologues from the November 8th, 2013 Puzzling Evidence Show (which commemorated the 50th Anniversary of the assassination). Much collaged material in here about JFK as well as, sprinkled throughout, pretty much all the versions, treatments, variations and covers of 'They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha Haa!' by Napolean XIV originally. - 3 hours.

NCN - Mad or Bad - The Psychopath Remix
October 26, 2015
Note--Some material in this program may be NSFW or triggering. Listener discretion advised! Webcast live, originally on October 25th, 2015 (also in the Second Life Burning Man virtual environment) a show about psychopaths, narcissists, sociopaths: Who among us can say they have not been affected? Not to worry, this program has a LOT of special information on them and advice on how to deal with and avoid them. A psychedelic audio documentary, this is a new, practical-minded, informative, deeply inspired, and one of the most worked-on and complex shows of ours in a long time... a vibrant cross-section of voices, at once musical, scholarly, historic, and artistic, concerned with psychopathy, sociopaths, narcissists, criminals, and the problem of evil in individuals, and in society at large. Is the world getting more psychopathic? Is the world run by psychopaths? And what, if anything, can we do about it? - A 3 hour mix.

NCN - The Gun Show
October 26, 2015
Webcast originally on October 18th, 2015 to dozens of listeners--over a couple of weeks after the Umpqua Community College shooting in Oregon. A cultural commentary made up of news, clips of politicians, comedians and pundits addressing the gun issue, songs about guns, the controversy of gun control, and a digital deconstruction overall of the endemic gun problem in America which gets more ingrained with every mass shooting. This was simulcast originally in the DFM Second Life Burning Man virtual environment at the time. It has some re-worked material from Don Joyce's solo show 'Guns' on Over the Edge (Negativland's radio show) from 1994. Running throughout the show also is a dramatization of Shirley Jackson's short story 'The Lottery'. - A 3-hour mix.

NCN - The Pigs Section (from Counting Sheep v2.0)
September 29, 2015
This was webcast on September 27th, 2015 on NCN, Plundercast and DFM out of Amsterdam. The entire program was 'Counting Sheep (and Pigs) v2.0 which was a redux of an earlier program. We present here the section that was most-changed: about pigs. With different versions of Pink Floyd's pig-oriented songs (from their album 'Animals') running throughout this section as well as riffs on 'War Pigs' by Black Sabbath and pig songs from Nine Inch Nail version medleys and mashups are in effect. Also covered is an event which took place in late Summer of 2015 concerning 'Pig Gate' a scandal involving alleged bestial past actions of British Prime Minister Dave Cameron as well as the retroactively prescient first episode of the TV series 'Black Mirror'. Also included is material and collages concerning swine flu. - 99 min. mix

NCN - Confusions
September 16, 2015
From September 13th, 2015: Played to over 17 listeners then on Plundercast and DFM out of Amsterdam--this is a confusing program all about the universal subject of confusion and being confused. We were pleased with how this came out. Variations of The Temptations' 'Ball of Confusion' run throughout, as well as variations on 'Land of Confusion' by Genesis. Some original mixtures in this long playing psychedelic mix. Best with headphones! This program took over 30 hours of work to put together. A sequel, of sorts, to the 'Confessions' show from the week before. - 3-hour (mostly music) mix!

NCN - Confessions
September 14, 2015
From September 6th, 2015: A comprehensive, if somewhat choppy (at times) and not back-announced mix of many, many, many different examples (cinematic, in song, comedy, and otherwise) from the media at large demonstrating the confession as an expository and narrative device in stories as well as a fixture in real life. Includes the episode of Midnight Voicejail: 'Breaking and Entering' and clips from the unreleased 'Cauldron of Agony' both by NCN. Note-This is disturbing at times and may be 'triggering'. Listener discretion advised. - 3 hours.

NCN on KFJC - Day of Don (Joyce Unto the World)
August 17, 2015
Just about exactly as it was broadcast on August 16th, 2015 with minimal trimming--NCN appearing live, and solo, on the 'Day of Don (Joyce Unto the World)' all-day Negativland / Don Joyce tribute show on KFJC: Remembering the great talent and work of Don Joyce who curated 'Over the Edge' on KPFA for over 35 years. We collected some choice rarities and pieces not heard for quite some time from Over the Edge and Negativland and composed them 'conversationally' using Don's own handed down technique. The result is a wild mix of mixes, bouncing from one subject to another, and always surprising, showcasing Don and Negativland's work since 1981. The apex of our memory lane mix was getting to in-depth interview Mark Hosler for well over an hour in the (more than) last hour of the program. - A 4 Hour Program.

NCN - The Art of Breathing (Part 1 of 2)
July 27, 2015
This is NCN's adaptation of the show 'Breathing' that we did with Jon Leidecker (Wobbly) of Negativland and Puzzling Evidence (Douglas Wellman) on 07/17/2015 on Negativland's radio show 'Over the Edge' in Berkeley, CA. We were helping to fill in, at that time, for our friend and long-time mentor and Negativland member Don Joyce (1944-2015). This is representative of that show with some post-production/mixing/additional material added to/done on it including a new ending. This is the last Over the Edge show done while Don Joyce was still alive, and in the hospital, at the time, due to breathing issues. Don sadly passed away on July 22nd, 2015 from heart failure. RIP Don Joyce and Long Live Negativland! - 3 hour program.

NCN - The Art of Breathing (Part 2 of 2)
July 21, 2015
We are working backwards sequentially in this two-part show, which is in part about breath and breathing, and is also in tribute to our mentor and friend Don Joyce (of Negativland, who is currently ill with breathing issues) on The Puzzling Evidence Show. We will present Part 1 next week which will be the Over the Edge portion of the show. This program is made up of some post-produced 'Show' from earlier this week, on KPFA 94.1 in Berkeley, upon which NCN appeared, along with Puzzling Evidence and Wobbly (of Negativland). We didn't know the program was going to be about breathing until 20 minutes beforehand! So a lot of our prepared material was rendered irrelevant, and not used, but some of that is presented here in tonight's remixed augmented redux of the last two hours of that big 5-hour OTE/Puzzling Evidence program. A 3-hour mix. Stay tuned for Part 1.

NCN - Anger Therapy
January 27, 2015
This program is about anger and was webcast on January 25th, 2015 on Plundercast and DFM. It is a hybrid show of the past un-released programs 'Escape from Anger' and 'Angry Music' along with some surprises from the current and recent era. This show seeks to be a cathartic release designed to soothe the savage beast-ness out in the listening ether. We are using the same graphic picture from the now defunct 'Angry Music' mix (sometimes these programs take years to truly develop into themselves). This mix spends time on remixed sequences philosophically examining anger along with inter-cut medley flourishes of mash-ups and other 90's era 'complaint rock' sets, interspersed with other tangential material - a 3 hour program.
