Host Bruce Silverman speaks with Roberta Gratz, author of "The Battle for Gotham: New York in the Shadow of Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs." Urban critic and journalist Roberta Brandes Gratz argues that New York City regenerated itself because of the waning power of Robert Moses. His decline in the late 1960s and the drying up of big government funding for urban renewal projects allowed New York to organically regenerate according to the precepts defined by Jane Jacobs in her classic, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, and in contradiction to Moses's urban philosophy.

Aristeo: Electronic Music from Nogales, 1980. Very Rare!

This month, on La Ruleta we'll be playing music by ARISTEO (Heriberto Montes de Oca), who is a musician from Nogales, Sonora.

In the late 1970's, early 1980's he put out a limited edition series of home made cassette tapes, recorded in Nogales, Arizona, wich are obviously vary hard to find.

My good friend Arturo Castillo, from Mexico City was fortunate to find them, and he amicably put them on digital format and sent CD's to me of the recordings.

I don't know whether they have been played on the radio before, but I would certainly consider Aristeo to be an impotant figure of  Electronic Music in the World.

Hope you enjoy!
