Prepare yourselves for pandemonium.

This week’s quest talks talk. Context on what we played and pithy commentary that just might create pandemonium (that word again!). Music to keep those nubbins joyful from the likes of the Polyrhythmics, The Mothers of Invention, The DB’s, Ahmad Jamal, Lene Lovich, Rosalie Cunningham, and Steve Gibson’s Red Caps, to name but seven of our 18 selections. As the Polyrhythmics cheerfully say, Yeti, Set, Go! Now audible on You Tube Music as well as the other portals that are home to the Parabola and are listed on our show’s Facebook page.
