Harvey’s premiere guest will be legendary LA artist Jim Shaw, who currently has a major solo exhibit up at Blum & Poe in Culver City, as well as The Hidden World at The Chalet Soiety in Paris -- a show culled from his vast collection of fringe religious/spiritual didactic materials. Shaw may play some recordings from his extensive collection of religious LPs, or his enormous and eclectic music collection in general, but the focus will be on his own musical endeavors – ranging from Destroy All Monsters, the experimental noise band he formed as an undergraduate at the University of Michigan in 1973 with Mike Kelley, Niagara, and Cary Loren, to his current project producing an epic prog-rock musical based on the tenets of his invented 19th-century visionary American religion Oism. Jim will join Doug live in the studio to spin examples from his various musical phases, discuss his inspirations, and possibly perform live.
Artists interested in being guests on Doug Harvey's Less Art Radio Zine, or submitting materials to be broadcast (we are particularly interested in documentation of local phenomena – including artists’ recordings and field recordings of live art music, sound sculptures, etc.) are invited to make contact via facebook message or gmail. Guests should preferably have a concurrent exhibit or event to cross-promote.
Tune into KCHUNG in LA’s Chinatown district at 1630 AM or online at www.kchung.org - if you miss the broadcast, shows can be accessed through the KCHUNG archive.
