A lengthy aural montage of interviews and monologues on the topic of “junk,” mixed with snippets of jazz music and live in-studio chatter and listener phone calls to KPFA. Under the direction of composer Anthony Gnazzo, this extended text-sound composition was played on the radio during one of KPFA’s groundbreaking listener participatory Radio Events. Chaotic and fun, this sort of adventurous and experimental programing was typical of the anarchistic artistic world that was Berkeley, during the late 1960s and early 70s.
