radio vertigo playlist may 24, 2011 - Mr. Mark

tuesday may 24, 2011 8-11pm WMUH LIVE STREAMING AUDIO

tonight's show features music and spoken word performances by Mr. Mark (10/31/57-5/24/01), as well as music that he turned me on to throughout the years.

special thanks goes out to:

Joe Limbus, longtime friend and collaborator, who did an incredible birthday tribute to Mr. Mark last October. some of the pieces played tonight come from the special edition 4-cd set of Mr. Mark recordings Joe released after that broadcast.

Glenn Frantz, a DJ who used to follow Mr. Mark on the air and tape his shows, has compiled an excellent archive of Mr. Mark material here:


Joe Swanson, General Manager of WMUH and friend, who let me borrow some additional materials for this show.

Dave Garton, who took the recordings Mr. Mark and I laid down on my CDR in the radio station's old production room in the basement of Seeger's Union and turned it into the beautiful package called Surrealism Delirium.

and last, but not least, Mr. Mark, for giving us just enough of a taste of his "Artist. Genius. Funny." to leave us forever wishing we'd have been able to keep him from going extinct before his time. but i can't talk about that now, i've got a radio show to do :)

i hope you enjoyed this evening's broadcast. thanks for tuning in, gang.
