Back after the Summer lay-off at Resonance FM, Ben Watson’s Late Lunch With Out To Lunch includes the lecture he gave at Zappanale 23 "B. Fart >>> A. Dress" in which a rock critic briefed to talk about Don Van Vliet resolves to dissolve the mouthshape of his rational discourse into yet another object of consideration and play (recording courtesy Peter Vanlaarhoven). The broadcast also includes Johnny "Guitar" Watson ("Byrd Ball Train"), John Coltrane ("Like Someone in Love") and in-studio performances of three of Out To Lunch’s graphic poems ("Shrig seasy sauce", "Fen totem goose" and "Burgeon bleed for aeon plaster action") interspersed with Derek Bailey from 1974 and Adam Bohman from 1993. Lastly, Joe South’s "Untie Me" to mark the passing of the unforgettable singer who took unguarded sincerity and moral indignation to new levels.

Naval Aviation In Audio, radio program on CJTR Regina Community Radio.
Episode no.178, aired July 18, 2012. Reading from french poet Stephan Mallarme’s Herodiade, as translated by C.F. MacIntyre. Contains several instances of "dead air" lasting 3 - 10 seconds becuase my recording software faultered (or something), unfortunately ruining two otherwise decent segues and thrice interuppting my discussion.
This episode engaged in a debate with Out To Lunch on the Butthole Surfers, using their Dust Devil and Captain Beefheart’s Mirror Man as discussion points. At the last minute I realized (1) that the idea of a "mirror" was more central to OTL’s argument than I originally had realized, and (2) that mirrors, and reflections in general, are prominant in the poetry I was reading by Mallarme. I would like to have said something intelligent on air about how the mirror theme spontaneously insisted itself on me, but god help me I’m not that quick.
