Jeff ChenaultThis week's special guests on The Sound Of Plaid are Charles Wince and Paul Volker, pop art instigators and mainstays of the Columbus Ohio art scene.

Charles Wince has spent the last two or three decades forging a body of work that boosts the lowbrow into high art.  Masterpieces like his Mother Russia Meltdown pack pathological amounts of detail into a painting so dense that you'll notice something new every time.  Conversely, Paul Volker's paintings combine the simplicity of a stand-up comic's one-liner with the obfuscation of a zen koan.

Sound Of Plaid logoTime for another one of our awesome-yet-fat-free Listener Request episodes of The Sound Of Plaid!

Once again we invite listeners to make requests for vague concepts only... no specific songs.  But don't worry; the perfect song to match your concept will be chosen -- either by us, or by other listeners.  Wisdom of the crowd, y'know?

Last month we successfully launched our automagical semi-robotic listener request system that coordinates your requests and suggested matches.  So let's turn it back on and have another go!

It's too late for your request -- we've already aired this show, but you can listen to the episode at the archive.

Jeff ChenaultThis week's special guest on The Sound Of Plaid is Jeff Chenault, longtime creator, collaborator, and promoter of music ranging from exotica to experimental to erectronica.

"Erectronica?"  Yes, years ago Greg Fernandez and I collaborated with Jeff as The Weird Love Makers, a combination of electronica, exotica, and erotica (hence, erectronica) that performed live for the better part of a decade.  Jeff has also collaborated with many others including James Towning (Fact 22) and Andy Izold (10-Speed Guillotine), not to mention running his own cassette label Exoteque in the 80's and, more recently, releasing albums of rare exotica music on Dionysus Records.

Sound Of Plaid logoOur Listener Request episodes of The Sound Of Plaid are favorites for us, and we think for listeners as well.  Each time we invite listeners to make requests for vague concepts only... no specific songs... that's our job, to choose songs we think match the concepts. In later episodes we invited listeners to help, by suggesting songs that match other people's requests... wisdom of the crowd, y'know?

But, coordinating all this before each episode has been a lot of work for us and the call for requests have been limited to Facebook users who happen to see them at just the right time... not ideal.  Now we're trying something new.

Use the form below and submit your request.  Below it is a list of requests others have made.  See a request you have a match for?  Click the link to enter it in our spreadsheet.

(OOPS: Left out a place for people to leave their names... corrected now.  You can also add your name to a previous request or match!)

It's too late for your request -- we've already aired this show, but you can listen to the episode at the archive.

Raymond Scott Rewired album cover

What would happen if mashup masters The Bran Flakes, The Evolution Control Committee, and Go Home Productions were set loose in Raymond Scott's audio archives, with with a blank check to sample anything and everything -- from his 1930's cartoon jazz to his 1960's electronic experiments?

The answer is Raymond Scott Rewired, an album of remixes and mashups of everything Raymond, produced by Irwin Chusid, handler of the Raymond Scott estate and WFMU legend.  Bran Flakes, ECC, and GHP contribute 6 songs each and the three jointly collaborated to create their cover of the infamous Powerhouse, the album's finale.  The album's release date is September 2013 February 18, 2014 on the Basta label, but you can preview three tracks on SoundCloud right now.

From The Raymond Scott Archives blog:


They were given hundreds of recordings owned by the Scott estate, in all genres, including unreleased material, spanning the mid-1930s to the mid-1980s. Jazz, orchestral, electronic, experimental, studio chatter, one-of-a-kind rarities.

These gents were invited to have fun, keep it rhythmic, and make it percolate. Each contributed six audio montages with new titles, and they collaborated on Scott's signature tune, "Powerhouse."

The project is titled RAYMOND SCOTT REWIRED.

It's finished. Mixed, mastered, designed, packaged, and manufactured. You can preview three tracks on Soundcloud. Official release date is September 10, Scott's birthday. (correction: album released February 18, 2014)
