4/17/011:32Neuborns Feel Pain (@WFMU)ListenNoise crunch; ummm uh you know ummm whatever; torturous Dufus loop excess; more Microsoft sounds; machine density; hello?; infinite Karma disjoint combination resolution; uninspiring interview.

6/4/005:45Insert CoinListen to 47 mins.Extravaganza closely interwoven with large improvisational event @ C.O.M.A.'s 2000 ABC No-Rio Benefit, NYC.

One particular 70-minute segment is pleasantly frightening, and recommended for relistening.
5/27/20001:03Y2Ken (@WFMU)ListenPlaylistVarious hypnotic loop and classic video game experiments crammed perilously into a single hour. On WFMU, 91.1 NYC area / 90.1 Hudson Valley area / internet broadcast.

11/20/993:00Piracy Breeds Lunacy4 sets throughout 6.5-hour event in Brooklyn, broadcast on pirate radio station free 103.9. More live Radiohead mixing, including Let Down (varispeed, layering), Karma Police (remixing of Extended Karma revisited), Thinking About You (manual loops yielding pleasant extension). Also Magnetic Fields loops, audience sampling, band sampling and looping, smatterings of straight weirdness, etc.. Also individual tracks: Moby God Moving, Momus Old Friend New Flame, Ken's Extended Karma, Ken's More Hanson Please, M-Slick's Karma and Spice Girls, Negativland Greatest Taste... (Tape 2 is fun)
5/14/999:00Lost in LoopsKen's Last Ever WHRW Extravaganza. First 3 hours: New, hypnotic, beautiful loops made out of: Magnetic Fields, Van Halen, Liz Phair, Radiohead, Peter Schilling, Kermit, etc. Highly recommended. Remaining 6 hours: I don't recall. (Warm up: Joe Frank radio shows)
1/30/996:00Confusing CollaborationShih Ming KaoWarm-up: Old confusing shows that themselves included old confusing shows. Recommended. Following 1.5 hours: New Radiohead mixing tricks (echo rhythms) layered with highlights of old confusion collaborations (esp. 9/7/97, with added classical music layer). 9/3/98 fight with Tanya/Satan samples. Remaining 4.5 hours: As confusing as a show has ever been. See more details about this show.) I rescind the 4.5-hour rebate of time back to your life, since this show turned out well.

Fall 1998
11/25/983:00LAST EVER Beatles Chaos FugueListenA true last ever, this 3 hour show moves through surrounding controlled chaos and then finds itself lost within a rich Beatles Fugue mix in the second half. Highly recommended.
11/22/981:30Fun rerun?
11/19/981:30PSA rerunMostly 1/16/98 (Smoking: Isn't It About Dads?), with 1/22/98 (Joey Ramone's Dining Hall Girl Quest) and bits of 4/23/97 10pm-1am (Old shows collage and OTE 9/96 clips)
11/17/982:00Rerun of rerunsMostly mixed clips of 9/21/97, which contained clips of many other shows
11/10/982:00Slow on SpeedTwo more hours of pitch-shifting experiments, exploring the richness of detail within a few seconds of a song, and then finding new musical patterns through high-speed compression. Either too slow or too fast
11/3/982:00Pitched RadioheadNew Let Down layering, then hypnotic pitch-shifting experiments. 99.9% Radiohead, .1% Hanson. Recommended.
10/29/981:30Dining Hall Girl 2 (Mark "Storm Guy") RerunRebroadcast 5/12/98-1, 10 minutes of 5/18/98, and a remix of WHRW shows from Colin during last 5 minutes

10/18/19983:00Ambient Beatless MP3'sPlaylistAs introduced by the president of the RIAA. Very moody, extremely scary, seemlessly mixed, added backmasking. Predominantly NWW, Coil, Aphex Twin. Recommended for 3 hours of low-key terror
10/7/981:3090 Minutes of NoiseLatest Radiohead remix debuted: Corrupted Karma (demonstrating various combinations of what happens to Radiohead when a computer is fooled into thinking it's dealing with a different type of audio file). Also plenty of Merzbow and some Plunderphonics
9/29/981:30Samples Calls Akira OTE Glass

Summer 1998
9/3/983:00Last Last Ever / Turing TestSampled Tanya from previous week hits on caller ("I'm going to call you, Colin, and you're gonna suffer"), and gets anti-homosexuality lecture. First ever appearance of caller getting into a fight with a computer, audio sample collage, tiny Press the Button sample, A Whole New World ... Recommended, especially Tanya Turing test section
(Listen to the entire show) (Taken offline)
6:00More Hanson, please: Freshmen Jamming IIIMore Hanson, please. Final Freshmen Jamming (Part 3). Revisited Radiohead loops. Tanya duplicity sampling jamboree. ("John, I think I have you outnumbered: there's about 7 of me and 1 of you.") Nobody knows who's live and who's electronic. And Joey Ramone sings King Diamond. High level of confusion. (Portions highly recommended, particularly tapes 2-3.) Listen to the entire show (Taken offline).

3:05Most ANNOYINGPut to a vote for most annoying show, I lost by a wide margin. - New monostereo deconstruction (L-R unsynching), dishwashing Weezer loops, Wooly belch shifting, free tape giveaways, pregnant on Old State Rd., request for 'I Hate That Quiche, Man' (9/5/97), apprentice, Mad Trivia annoying votes: "You can't compete with those guys!", caller overload, wrap up with dishwashing Weezer relief. Recommended: Weezer loops (tape 1, side B), funny calls (tape 2)
3:00Nonsensical poetryAlso loops, pitchshift, eerie mood and electronic music, Wooly scrotum loop, "5,4,3,2,1", etc. Poor Henry Rollins ("and the shrink that was picking my brain"). Interesting

6/5/982:15Rebroadcasts, music
6/4/983:20(Summer 98 #1 - Untitled)Ambient, compusamples, compuPSA, computalk - Perhaps too long. Electronic voice talking about Dads ("What's it mean to be a Dad? It means when my Dad beats me up. It's like when my Mom and Dad get into a fight and my Dad sleeps on the couch."). Interesting, eerie, moody. Lots of references to earlier shows, like Dad cart references. Still interesting as stand-alone, but voice part would be more meaningful with background of carts. But much more happens in the show.
6/3/982:37(Still untitled)Chatter, rebroadcasts

5/12/983:00The search for Dining Hall Girl concludes, with Mark "Storm Guy"The follow-up to the 1/22/98 show, seeking closure to the unfulfilled quest. Turns into an all-out attack on a rapping, aspiring meteorologist. Tape 2 recommended (once "Storm Guy" shows up)

2/5/983:00Half calls, half broken storiesFirst 45 minutes: Coldcut, Momus, Negativland Sex Dirt. Reordered poetry. "More noise please." Etc. Then, stupid people on air and Keith accusing Pilgrim of being Dining Hall Girl. Wooly, Big Ups. Lots of confused layering of talking and callers from different shows, which leads to funny and confusing results (I still have no idea what's going on in this show). Then an abrupt switch to spoken word splicing using political tapes, and multiple Mark Twain stories edited for maximum confusion. Interesting show. More rambling detail is available.

Fall 1997
12/17/974:13Matt Biscuiti Part II (aka Laurie Quinlan)Matt Biscuiti was supposed to be here from 4 to 1 (Pushing the limits of inside jokes, but also very entertaining, quick, funny, clever, cult following ensued. Highly recommended, if you can stand it. Reward to person who guesses how many times the phrase is used on the show (hint: it's more than 100). Successful mass hypnosis. And anyone involved with WHRW, SUNY B, or the SA in '97 must have this.)
12/15/973:00Def Washing Matt Biscuiti from 4 to 1First half: Quadruple dish-washing hypnosis with repeated pop loops and catatonic Philip Glass, Def Leppard/Metallica/Malcolm X collage. Second half, Matt Biscuiti is used in modern Laurie Quinlin systems from 4 to 1. Cult following ensued. Show #2 (12/17/97) might even be better. (But Matt Biscuiti is supposed to be here from 4 to 1. Repetition becomes mob rule. Reward to correct guesser on number of times the phrase is used.)
