Stonewatching with Joe Kapp - A mix for "The Garden of Earthly Delights"

I was contacted a few months ago by Shane Quentin the showrunner for "Garden of Earthly Delights" a groovy mix show on CRMK. I had been mulling over mixes for a while having experimented with a live mix at Reading's Doubledotbash festival a couple of years ago (see Radio Vincent). I had finally managed to catch up with The Quatermass Conclusion (1979) of which the second episode "Lovely Lightning" is an utter classic. I used this as a basis for my mix. I used sounds captured from my father's old reel-to-reel tape recorder. In order to make a record of a church service sometime in the mid-eighties he recorded over Joe Loss and his Orchestra. because that tape was the wrong format and played at a different speed Joe Loss's work can still be heard underneath the sermons and calls and responses at a very reduced speed. 

It was broadcast on CRMK on Friday 23rd May 2014.
