Things That Are Vanishing, globally, nationally and locally, worth memorializing, celebrating, rallying for and keeping in the spotlight. Things we do not want, in the words of poet Dylan Thomas, to “go gentle into that Good Night.” Guests:

  1. Judi Harvest, who divides her time between New York and Venice Italy, and whose practice involves collaborations with Bees, and with glass blowers on the island of Murano Italy. Judi will be participating in the forthcoming Biennale in a collateral exhibition, and will talk with us about beekeeping and working with master artisans in acclimate of upheaval and change.
  2. Paul Clabby, artist and curator at the John Slade Ely House in New Haven, a venerable arts exhibition venue in a historic house, which is slated to close its doors this summer. We will celebrate the life and times of the gallery, which is one of several culture institutions in the city which are currently undergoing radical change. The John Slade Ely house under Paul’s tenure has been the locus of many projects that have profoundly affected the lives and careers of area artists, community groups, clubs – notably “paint and clay” – and students.

Coming up: an archive dive into some of the best recording’s we can find in the vast myriad of archival tape, donated, or otherwise board tape traded. This particular night, since I received many calls on a show I played a couple of weeks ago, I dove in to find ones that were a little rawer than rare. Tonight, we continue the ‘Galactic’ Flight, this time from the Murat Center in Indianapolis, the summer of ‘1999 (I highly doubt it exists today). After that… ‘Heads’ Up. I got nothing to say!
