On the 8th of November, 2019, Mid-Valley Mutations was supposed to do an over-the phone interview with The Ether Creeps, an experimental act of which your host has become a bit of a fan. But what was supposed to be a simple phone call turned into… something else.
What was aired on KMUZ that evening is what you can hear in place of this show. But what it is, and if you should listen to it, is not for me to say. Some people thing something was unleashed that evening.
We’ll let you be the judge.

It’s always nice to visit with friends when you’re having a party like this, at to wrap up our Holiday broadcasts this month, we have the incomparable DJ Victrola, joining us to help clean up the studio, and catch up regrading all things spooky.
We play lots of music and stories relating to ghosts and All Soul’s Day, and we check in with her about her program, and how you can hear it now. I love spending time with DJ Victrola, and this is an excellent and casual show that was a ton of fun.
We close with the timely, “Nov. 1st,” by Crackerbash, a song I listen to every year on Nov. 1st, for as long as I’ve known about this song.
We’re getting ready for that OTHER holiday season, so stay tuned.
Join us for a very cool and rare treat: a re-creation of an electronic music radio program from the late ’80s and early ’90s, which was infamous for their Halloween Shows! Brian Magill is no stranger to our show, and has been making electronic music since the early ’80’s. As part of this work, Brian eventually hosted a radio program at KLCC, Another Green World, as part of their attempt to cater to the interests of electronic music fans and artists, that was on the rise.
However, once a year – on or near Halloween – Another Green World would get… weird. Long sound collages and other forms of musique concrete would take over their broadcasts, often the last things that would air on the station before it would go off the air for the night. The show quickly became infamous, and casual listeners would think something was wrong with the radio. Instead, they were merely catching a glimpse into the musical work that Brian and his co-host, Nathan Griffith, would create, in the moment, on the air.
Tonight’s show is an effort to recreate Another Green World as best as we can, just in time for the show to offer a typical Halloween show, as you might have heard almost 30 years ago. Brian brought in records from his collection, stuff that he would have played on the show then. I actually took a step back, and let him run the board; aside from an interview setting up the concept at the beginning, this is all Brian, and you get to hear something that no one else has heard in three decades.
In Hour 1, settle in for hearing what a typical episode of Another Green World might have been like 30 years ago. Then, strap in for Hour 2, where Brian takes us on a sound collage journey through his favorite artists, and what radio used to sound like.
Along the way, we get heavy doses of Fervent Torpor, AND a number of unreleased, unavailable, and previously unheard recordings by Brian from over the years. If you ever thought to yourself, “I bet that artist has a ton of other recordings I haven’t heard yet,” This is just the tip of the iceberg. Brian could have done two hours of his own unreleased material, which would have been as good as the stuff on his record, “1000 Years of Solitude.” Instead, you get to hear it in this show, tonight.
Shows like this are something special, and you cannot (and will not) hear stuff like this anywhere else. This is a very unique Halloween Performance / Broadcast, and it’s this kind of show that makes me excited to keep bringing you radio like this.
This week we continue our Ghost Story program with special guest, Obadiah Baird, who talks about editing The Audient Void, his favorite free horror movies, and then we read some poetry that is perfect for this time of year.
In hour two, Nathan Carson and Erin Jane Laroue provide an excellent rendition of an Ambrose Bierce short story, and so much more. This is a good one!
This time of year is a lot of fun when you can get some guests in the studio, and with that in mind, we got none other than Kylie Burbank, and her friend Elder Valik Grey of the local Vampire Council..
The Holiday season sneaks up on us sooner and sooner every year, and I almost forgot to get into the mood before October got here. Fortunately I was reminded at just the last minute, and so we have an excellent program for you this evening!
Two phone calls with spooky stories to make you shiver! Artist Jody Kat calls in to talk about a family tradition she used to participate in. And in hour two, comedian Emily Rivera calls with a couple of songs and a story about something that happened, at a certain bridge…
There’s a ton of excellent holiday fun this year, that’s just getting underway. So please, keep listening all month long. There’s plenty more Ghost Stories coming your way.
Join myself and A Moment’s Sound (Scott Eave / Zen Guitar), as we day Derrida’s 101 Course on the history of America’s roads.
We also enjoy some new music, and jam out live for all of the second hour. It’s an incredibly excellent show of new and fun performances and music, and we hope that you can sit back and follow along with the our guest lecturer.

It’s always a pleasure to have Four Dimensional Nightmare on the program. We usually don’t talk. We usually get straight to business. And while we can talk about shows and bands for hours, we are often all business, which is cool. But this time we did something new, something we’ve never done in the almost 10+ years that we’ve known each other: this time, we played together!
Hour 1 is a long DJ set and we get things going, but in hour two, join us for a full blows Four Dimensional Nightmare, with Mini-Mutations lending support! Podcasting listeners will enjoy a rare Mini-Mutations jam that just goes on and on… as we listen to nature drone.
This one is a lot of fun. We hope you spend as much time with it as we did.

This week on the program, we become both very Eugene-centric and Ellen-centric, as we feature a number of cool people and projects all born out of Eugene, OR, as well as connected to Ellen Klowden, the mastermind behind this particular broadcast. In many ways, I just came in and watched. She arranged everything, and I could certainly use more of that in my life.
We kick things off with a fantastic Set by DJ Refugium, the primary force behind the Ghost House events that happen in Eugene. Refugium provides a bit of the phenomenal decade of history of nurturing the Ghost House community, and embodies its sweet and welcoming flavor. Be sure to hop by Old Nick’s Sept 13-14 for Goth Weekend, which Refugium curates. Fri: Live performances by Xploding Boys (Cure cover band) and Devoured by Flowers. Sat: Dark Arts Market & Ghost House.
We follow that up with a full live performance by Dryad Drone, the brain-child of DJ Refugium & Ellen. Dryad Drone, as a musical entity and as a concept album, is entirely devoted to protection of forest ecosystems, which has also been lifework for both its members, Ellen via direct action and radical media, and Refugium via academic research and field work.
Then, in hour two, we offer the very first live performance by Bast Awakening, the combination of Ellen & I Died, also making his first visit to the KMUZ studios. Then, we close things out with the newly-named DEATH MUTATIONS, which, if I Died agrees, might be an entirely capitalized band name. We’re still deciding.
We conclude the program with a live set by Pavlovian Response, the combination of Ellen and Patrick Haenelt (of Ganesha Column, Electrosect, and Tubbs & Oates), recorded last week at the memorial for our fallen friend and centerpoint of experimentalia at Icky’s, the Merkin, and 7th & Washington House, Monty Ray Davis (of Neteru, Uncle Pinkeye, and Ventriloquist).
Sat., 9/14, show at Wandering Goat: Lidless Eye (homemade electronics vs. composted tapes by Knox Mitchell of Port Huron, MI); The Fearing Crumpet (musique drone concrit; first show in 17 years); Don; Heart Therapy (debut collab of Ellen and Arlan); Mini-Mutations.
Sat., 9/21, private house show: Debut of Psithurism (nOiZepHyZiX + Ellen); Don; Elijah; [view]; Bast Awakening.
Tues., 9/24, show at Wandering Goat: Icky’s/Merkin/7th & Wash family reunion for Ellen’s birthday: Intended line-up, awaiting confirmation: Pavlovian Response; Blood Red; Ramen Blood Clot; solo vocal / electronic set by Patrick Haenelt; Arlan (possibly with Steamshovel Monkey, possibly Heart Therapy).
Sat., 9/28, show by Corvallis Experiments in Noise at Interzone will feature Dryad Drone.
Summertime seems reminiscent to me of US History. Forth of July. All that America being decided 200+ years ago in the most intense heat imaginable. And with the environment trending the way it does, our summer’s will only be worse, so we have books about history to turn to – or, in some cases, records – to help us pass the time.
“The Making of A Nation” is a record from 1963, part of a Time / Life series, and occasionally you see them in thrift stores. What I put them on, what fascinated me is that it is a Whistle-Stop tour of US History, as I remember it being taught to me in the ’80’s. I guess it isn’t surprising that this story didn’t really change for decades. Certain things do not change. But if we compare the social change that has occurred in the last 20 years – since I graduated from High School – the story of our own history is so problematic that it would not be told in this same way again.
Listening to a history lesson from almost 60 years ago is, in many ways, not surprising. But what is surprising is how fabricated it really is. The story I grew up with – one that many of us know – was carefully edited, and manipulated to present a tale that sold one idea, and oppressed many others. While my particular re-presentation doesn’t actually re-contextualize any of this – that would be a project for another day – it offers a glimpse into our racist and sexist past that, here and now, seems far closer than the 60 years by which now and then are separated.
To accompany this, I have more excellent music from the infamous “Banker’s Box.” There’s so much new stuff that this will probably be the format of the show for a while, at least until I catch up and get a few more projects off my desk.

I first met Hugo a couple years ago, when he played a show at The Space to a fairly packed crowd, offering dance jams and soundscapes that really felt personal, and unique. But it’s been a while, and where he used to perform under a pseudonym – Lavender – Hugo had grown and matured with time, and as such, has embraced his own name. It only made sense that when he wanted to debut some new songs, in preparation for his upcoming tour, that we would try to get him back in at The Space, and on Mid-Valley Mutations, to show off what he’s done.
Joining him was his friend and labelmate, Derek Hunter Wilson, a pianist, composer, and performer who is often aligned with the experimental while playing some of the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever heard. He ALSO has a new album out, and both of these new albums were released TODAY, so we let Derek run wild, playing his pieces in hour two.
There’s a little of this and that filling in the spaces, and I gab away with my guests about their projects and the current state of music. But stick around until the very end, because all three of us jam together, improvising a little something new about the storm of comets that was plaguing Salem and KMUZ last night.
Three Live Performances! Interviews! Two In-Person Guests! This show has everything, and I’m very excited to bring it to you now.

Michael’s show is a fairly new addition to KMUZ, but his emphasis on music from movies is something unique on radio, and a good example of the kinds of things you can find on our station that separate us from the kind of radio you may know and dread.
For this show, I offered support for the drive, and there is some cool talk and music throughout the hour and a half.
I urge you to check this out, and if radio like this is something you would like to hear more often, then please, make a donation at kmuz.org, and keep our station up and running.
NW Tech Show (On KMUZ, 2 December 2015) (I sit in on an episode of David Duncan’s NW Tech Show, a staple of the KMUZ Schedule since 2011, to talk about current tech news that affects you. This was broadcast at 12 Noon on 100.7 & 88.5 FM in Salem/Keizer and other parts of the mid-Willamette Valley, from Woodburn to Albany and Dallas to Stayton. It was also streaming live on kmuz.org.)
As I may have hinted at in other places here and there, I’ve been volunteering at the local community radio station here in Salem, KMUZ, which not only has a number of incredible local programs, but is community oriented in every sense of the word. Entirely volunteer run, with no paid staff or any kind, every show is programmed by the individual who hosts and prepares it every week. You can check out their schedule, and tune in live to hear some amazing locally produced radio, just the way you like it.
While a few people post archives or recordings of their shows, KMUZ is radio the old fashioned way: live and fleeting. That doesn’t stop the DJs from recording their shows, but it does put the emphasis back on what radio does best: listening in the moment, hearing a song or a conversation that is IN THE NOW, and then moving on to the next thing that is also of that moment. It’s been a lot of fun to reconnect with this part of radio, and I’ve enjoyed volunteering there quite a bit.
Fortunately for us, David Duncan – the host of NW Tech Show, records his programs, and as a bonus this week, I’ve included this recording in the podcast feed. As the show suggests, we talk about very real current tech news, and offer some thoughts on these issues. I am by no means an expert in the world of tech, and I offer my comments as personal opinion rather than as a thought leader you should consider. But it was a lot of fun to get a chance to offer an unprofessional opinion on the subjects at hand. David runs a good show, and is a real professional behind the board. If this kind of thing interests you, the show is also aired on Capital Community Television, and you can see a few past episodes on nwtechshow.com.
