arvo2The Delerious Insomnica Free Form Radio Show (#21) 

I will by honest: Arvo Zylo and I have never met.  And, furthermore, I was unfamiliar with his work – or the releases on his label, No Part Of It – until I heard it on Ricardo Wang’s What’s This Called?  But a good thing is hard to resist, and soon enough I received an excellent package of material from his label.  As it turns out, Mr. Zylo also used to host a radio program, and one thing led to another, and then… well, you’re hearing the results, right now.

These kinds of collaborations not only come easy, but are the backbone of good radio.  Collectors are always putting together their own collections of incredible music, and it would be pretty ridiculous to claim that only I could ever understand what listeners want.  Arvo’s label is not only entirely unique it the releases they put out, but his personal taste in music is also incredibly fantastic.  It didn’t take many e-mails before we had sorted out what we wanted to do, and the added bonus was that this all lined up in October, so we could present it as part of our annual “Halloween Spook-tacular!”


For this show, we’re doing something a little different.  Podcast listeners will get to hear a special, two-hour show that the broadcast listeners did not get to hear.  If you tuned in on the radio, you heard Arvo’s Halloween music selections, culled from his personal collection, and perfect for this time of year.  Podcast listeners will be treated to an extra hour of Halloween Music, all from No Part Of It Records releases, also perfect for the holiday season.  There’s just so much good music coming from him, that it was silly to not take advantage of this.  In the end, dear listener, you always come out ahead.  In fact, you can hear the hour-long broadcast version here, if there’s a demand for that.

I really enjoy doing radio like this, where it is not only my voice that winds up on the show.  No Part Of It is a wonderful label that not only presents music that is often overlooked, but has a vision and mission statement that is incredibly personal, and a pleasure in this era of cookie-cutter music.  We hare proud to have them be supporters of our program, and we look forward to having their music on the program.
