WMUA FM 91.1
Amherst, Mass. 01003
live webcast

Sundays 21:00--24:00 EST
Host: Max Shea
online playlists: Martian Gardens blog

Program for January 17, 2010
(extended edition 21:00--02:00. This program was slated for 1/10/10, but I was preempted by UMass hockey. A sports preemption this late on a Sunday is extremely rare. The last time it happened to Martian Gardens was about ten years ago. There are no further preemptions scheduled for Martian Gardens through the end of the spring semester. I have postponed the date-sensitive material from Varese and Xenakis (with the accompanying musique concrete piece by Ferrari) which I programmed anticipating the Poème électronique event at Judson Church, January 15, in favor of the Berio and Baker pieces (set two) in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the federal MLK Day observed 1/18/10. EMF will be collaborating with The Drawing Center through March, 2010, thus I will broadcast Varèse, Xenakis, and related materials in the coming weeks. -- Max)
