What is your name? What is the name of your show?

I’m Rebar, and it’s the Solid Mud Show – Friday nights, 6-9.

Describe your show. What is the format of your show?

First and foremost, it’s about the music. I like deep, underground, loud, garage… typically. One of the best compliments someone could give me is, “Wow I really liked your show, and I didn’t know a single song on it.”

It does have a bit of duality to it, because you guys gave me a microphone and I decided I was going to use it. The show certainly has evolved and is continuing to evolve. It has a radio theater element, sort of in the tradition of Prairie Home Companion or Saturday Night Live – a lot of political satire. I want to give a big shout-out to Mick, co-collaborator for a lot of the skits, who plays a lot of the different characters and sort of enters in and out of the solid mud.

Techno Sadhu // Ken Wolverton

What is your name, and what’s your DJ name?

Ken Wolverton, and I go by Techno Sadhu, pronounced Shadoo.

What’s the name of your show? What’s its format?

The Techno Sadhu Quartet. It’s a talk show divided into four half-hour sections: news according to me, which is not news at all but things people either write and I read, or recordings I play; the second 30 minutes is philosophy and psychology talks—Alan Watts has been my mainstay for the past 2 years, because he’s a most eloquent philosopher, a 20th-century equivalent of Sartre or Aristotle. The third quartet is all of my writings since I was 13 years old; I’ve read two dozen or more over the years, from my trilogy; and the last 30 minutes is left for a live interview series I started of the women of Madrid. We’re really a matriarchy, here in Madrid. 90 percent of our shops and restaurants are owned and operated by women.

Lilly Whiteswan

What is your name? What is the name and time of your show?

My name is Lilly Whiteswan; The Zone Radio Show (Fridays 4-6pm).

What is the format of your show?

It’s all music. I talk for just a couple of minutes, but I love just playing the music and so that is what I’ve done this time. I really wanted to add some of the new music, because I feel like we get kind of stuck in the ‘60s and ‘70s music, and so I wanted to play new music so people get into that too – there’s really good music out there. I’ve been trying to mix it all in, but I’ve found that people’s favorite shows are when I play the ‘60s and ‘70s music. They’re kind of stuck. I don’t want to be stuck.

Teresa Finley

What’s your name and your DJ name?

My name is Teresa Finley and my DJ name is the same.

What’s the name of your show, and when is it on?

Friday afternoons, 1:00 to 2:00, No Dancing. I just thought it would be funny at first to have mostly dance music and have it called that. I play a little bit of a Smog song at the beginning of each show.

Skinny Al // Scott Allan Switzer

What is your name and DJ name?

My full name is Scott Allan Switzer and my DJ name is Skinny Al.

What is the name of your show? What is its format?

That would be Skinny Al’s Blender. It’s basically a mix of music from primarily the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s, and occasionally from this century as well… occasionally. It’s just kind of a mix of music.
