This Wednesday the 18th we’ll be doing a special live radio broadcast on WPKN 89.5 FM in the New York Metro area from 8PM- 11PM.  I’ll be on-air with my good friend JBW.  We’ve put together a three-hour retrospective of the careers of Brian Eno and John Cale.

calenoblogThese two legendary performers and producers have shaped so much of the better part of pop and rock music for the past half-century (fkkn nuts, right?) and we will share with you a (by no means exhaustive) survey of their work in parallel.

nico-cale-enoThere are so many interesting connections between these two, and common to it all is the basic premise of injecting an avant-garde sensibility into mainstream music and life.  As per usual on Preservation Sound Radio, we will be broadcasting from the original vinyl LPs, with very few limited exceptions.  Tune in on yr radio dial or stream the show live from anywhere on the planet at WPKN.ORG.

PSradioHow y’all doing,,,  This is  ‘news’ for my readers in Europe, Africa, Australia, and Asia; and all you late-nite folk in the Americas.  I’ll be doing an overnight show on WPKN FM 89.5 in Bridgeport CT the the wee hours of Sunday morning 2A – 5A 10.26.14.   That’s otherwise known as really late Saturday night.

Or maybe it’s a normal sunny mid-day in New Zealand.  Anyhow.  Let us help you.  My good ole buddy JBW and I have dug deep thru our LP stacks to find 3 hours worth of the best bittersweet late 60s and early 70s rock obscurities you’ve never heard.  We’ll be playing nothing but vinyl all night and talking in some kinda coded crate-digger sprache .  Catch us on the air if yr within 60 or so miles of Bridgeport, or online anywhere in the world at   Just go to and click the ‘Listen Now’ button.
