Tonight in the Explorers Room–In The World, But Not Of It: An Evening with the Compositions of Moondog


Tonight's episode of Explorers Room will be an all-Moondog affair, with a special emphasis on the composer's multi-part suites, later-period symphonic/saxophonic recordings, and–of course, of course–his exotic themes and motifs.  Moondog is no secret to serious music listeners these days, but that doesn't mean we can't spend an enlightening evening eraptured by his elegant repetitions, now does it? Bring fresh ears; all other senses strictly optional.

Tonight, 7-10, followed by The Cool Blue Flame with Little Danny.

Such joy. Thanks for making my morning!

I'm sure you've been asked this before but, any chance of downloading the radio emissions?. They'll sound great in the cottage house w no internet connection.

Thanks to this program I discovered the amazing Suite Equestre, and the album where it's at. Thanks for this.

@Miguel Ángel del Ser, download/save the .pls file, open it in a text editor (suggest not Word), you should see a url for the streaming mp3, which you can copy and use to save the show for offline listening :)
