It Came From Outer Space (#96)

It Came From Outer Space (#96)
(Originally aired 10 April 2010 on KPSU.)

I have always been fascinated by all things related to space. When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut. I loved sci-fi movies and books, and found myselfregularly interested in things that related to the idea of leaving this planet in favor of another one. For years I wanted to make a series of tapes with my favorite alien songs on them. These days, I just do a radio show.

I decided to bring in a lot of the experimental music that I skipped the last time I did a show like this. I think it worked; it gave me a chance to play a lot of samples from The Day The Earth Stood Still, and actually made for some compelling (and strange) radio.

Much of the music speaks for itself, and with this one, I recommend just sitting back and enjoying.
