Somebody's Got a Birthday Coming Up!
Next Tuesday December 16th would have been Philip K Dick's 80th birthday. To celebrate this I have been invited back on the radio for a two-hour tribute to our favorite sci-fi surrealist this Friday December 12 11:59pm -2am on Pirate Cat Radio 87.9 FM in the Bay Area.
The show's called Psionic Dehiscence and I'll be playing some interviews with PKD - old ones - not from beyond the grave, some John Dowland, hopefully the VALIS opera (if you have a copy of this please email me), some Sonic Youth, Flaming Lips, and other strange rock 'n rollers influenced by PKD. I even hope to have some interviews with some of PKD's friends and family (no names just yet). Maybe even some of PKD's old radio plays will find their way on the show. I promise lots of rarities, so fire up your satellite recorders, or load the transmission into your data player for later rebroadcast, but don't miss the satellite firing.
Update: The podcast is available for download here.
Thanks to Yuri G and The Stranger for making this happen.
