When: 24 June 2003
Where: WKCR FM NY 89.9 or in Real Audio and MP3 Format worldwide www.wkcr.org
The New Music Department at WKCR is celebrating the birthdays of both Partch and Riley with a 24 hour straight broadcast of their music. The show will focus on the entire career of Partch and up to 1978 for Riley. The reason given for the cutoff date on Riley is due to "relavance & quality" Well I don't believe that but there is only 24 hours to do this and many of Riley's most innovative and groundbreaking works do fall into that time frame. As one who has been an avid listener of WKCR for many years, the various music departments do a great job on these special broadcasts playing not only commercial releases but many private and rare recordings. So if you are a fan or are just curious, mark your calendars and tune in. At this moment, WKCR is finishing up a 5 day Henry Grimes festival (ending tonight at 7:00pm EST) so you still have time to tune in and and listen to that!
