OLd KBOO program guide cover featuring "Vileness Fats" from The Residents

    Check out this old Kbøø program guide from way back in the day !!  -- Does anybody know who was behind this?


Do you have an image of it?

Also, what's the date? I'd love to see it. If it was in the Seventies, I'll bet you a guava donut it was Bill Reinhardt of Radio Lab. He was the gentlemen responsible for bringing the Residents to radio and wider exposure to the US via a tape they gave him to play on the air, the mythical Residents Radio Show. You can see (and hear) some amazing stuff here. Also, check out his other videos for a rare glimpse of the Residential Lair. Perhaps you know all this. It's sadly seldom taught in schools anymore. :::KILL:UGLY:RADIO:::


Both Bill and Barry had shows on KBOO, Bill started off with, "The Radio Lab" and later changed the name to, Cryptic Propensities Projections" that should tell you something, Bill is Uncle Willy, and the Mysterious N. Senada, and Portland is The Frozen North!!!
Barry had a show called, "Onomatopeia" of which I was a frequent caller, I have most of all of both of these shows on reel to reel and have been burning them all to cd, it is a daunting task, both for the work involved, and for the mind altering nature of these shows.
There is currently a special project in the works involving me and Brian Poole of, "Renaldo & the Loaf" a tribute to Barry Schwam, "Schwump" a great, great man!!!!
Much more to come, as the truth will unravel!!!!

Tell us more, Mr. Anonymous (not verified)...

...This inquiring mind wants to know. Herr Rienhardt is N. Senada? Really? How might one hear these amazing shows? Could you contact me at my blog below? I am all a-twitter with anticipation! :::KILL:UGLY:RADIO:::


There were two of us, we had reel to reels which we kept going almost around the clock for about 12 years, well at least when we thought there was something to be heard, but in general we just kept taping everything, the radio, the tv, our family in action, we would take impromptu excursions to say, Multnomah Falls, and we would whip out our portable reel to reels and just go up and interview people at random, we would mix this all together and send this material all over the world, we called ourselves, "Glo-bin Treeflip"- we would sneak tapes into stores with bizarre covers with weird group names and leave them for the unsuspecting to find, this was obscurity!!!!

We were on L.A.F.M.S. and Insane Music for Insane People and other comps under numerous names, now I'm spending all my time gathering it all together, and I send cds out to people as a surprise, sometimes there is material by The Residents, or Schwump, or Walt Curtis, and even Dick Ross, it's fun being weird!
