Folks, the show's a recording, but I'm on hand here should the urge to communicate with me strike you.

Hi Rob, I’m trying to keep out of the way. Shelley is doing her semi-annual office purge while tuned in to T.I.E. On this rainy Sunday afternoon.

Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Eeeeep! Clarice! Watch out for flying file folders, used-up pens and other airborne detritus!

1:41 PM, August 29th, 2021
Yeah, her aim isn’t very good. We are both enjoying the tunes though.

1:45 PM, August 29th, 2021
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Glad to hear it! More grooves to come, perfect for rainy-day purges!

1:47 PM, August 29th, 2021
Grooovy show as always, RobB. I particularly like this funky track playing now. I assume this is the Angola soundtrack?

2:28 PM, August 29th, 2021
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Yes indeed, Manmohan. Last two tracks were from Angola Soundtrack and the next one coming up is from Angola Soundtrack 2. Glad you're enjoying!

2:34 PM, August 29th, 2021
Good tunes and greetings from Vancouver! Helped out at CKCU from 1982 to 1986 while I was at Carleton.

Hi Khristian! Nice to hear from a station alumnus, and good to know the sounds are making it out west. Vancouver's one cool town!

WOW!! Yet another of the AMAZING Terry Riley 'In C's. That i was unaware of. So may incarnations out there. The permutations are limitless.

3:05 PM, August 29th, 2021
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Right, peebee? Riley unleashed infinite possibilities with this piece. Each one's different, but they're all immediately, recognizably In C.

3:10 PM, August 29th, 2021
i wonder how many variations of 'In C' (and/or 'In D') are out there in the wild. i'm sure the informal groove-outs, never recorded, or even written down, sessions would wiiiiiiildy out number the "official" recordings. Like by many orders of magnitude. It is definitely a "Genie Got Out Of The Bottle" moment.

3:26 PM, August 29th, 2021
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Yup. They abound. Did you ever play that Shanghai orchestra version on the show? If not, we should play that one.

3:29 PM, August 29th, 2021
peebee again
(Dear listeners: top secret shoooow planing ... ignore .. ;^) Know it, i think. But nope, not on show far i know. Crap! More homework.

3:39 PM, August 29th, 2021
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
I haven’t, but I thought you might have. Let’s DO it!
