Uneasy Chairs, Nathan Pepperoni and CEOs Incorporated, LIVE! (#25)

img_3012Uneasy Chairs b/w Nathan Pepperoni and CEOs Incorporated, LIVE! (#25)

You could make a case for Uneasy Chairs being a virtual co-host for our program, with the amount of music and collaboration we’ve done since this show got started.  The idea of a live show was in the works from the beginning, but it isn’t always easy to coordinate schedules.  We all have jobs and lives and it isn’t always easy to jet out of town for a week.  But I managed to catch Uneasy Chairs on tour, with a show at The Space, then picking up another Portland gig Saturday Night, booked around an appearance on our program.  It was pretty excellent, and we had to take advantage of the opportunity.

In the first hour of our program, catch three distinct sets by Uneasy Chairs, intermixed with a few recordings, interviews, and other free-improvised radio, which includes a jam between The Weather Computer and Uneasy Chairs that is pretty fantastic.  I feel like we’ve become good friends through music and art, and it has been incredibly gratifying to not only have him perform on the show, but have such an excellent two days, offering to same a chance to really enjoy some fantastic live music.

Comedy – even experimental comedy – is not always successful on the radio, but when you play your cards right, something magical happens.  Fortunately for the listeners at home, this hour is full of stories, music, and a very different sonic pallet than our first hour.  This is not what you expect, in all the ways that phrase can embody, and this is certainly a radio broadcast that you will not forget.

I feel so fortunate that I get to do stuff like this, and when you get shows this good, it really drives the point home.  I recommend you kick back with this one, because it will take you places.

Enjoy.
