Be sure to join is here next week for more music from the vault.
Links for listening take you to last week's shows.
All of these links play different shows than the ones listed. Can you please fix? Thank you!
As several people have pointed out, the links appear to take you to the shows David has mentioned, but click each URL and the link for the previous week comes up.
So, for example, clicking the link for the 8/10/82 show brings up last week's sequence for 8/4/71. The same is true for the other links listed above. They bring up a corresponding show from last week's Taper's Section.
Now fixed - thanks!
The links in this week’s (Feb. 15th) Tapers’ Section point to the selections from last week, not the selections listed for this week.
8/10/82--my first introduction, ever. good-ol cassette. friend showed up to our group in the park with a boombox as kaleidoscopic diamonds were showering from my sky, and threw on the second set. Absolutely bamboozling and immersively safe. That space>iko is still my hands-down favorite.
still remember the handwriting on that tape label.
