  NCN - The Peter Gabriel Remix Project | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:00

Webcast on January 31st, 2016--Continuing in our tributes to musical 'Heroes' such as David Bowie a couple of weeks ago: this is a moving, heartfelt tribute and synthesized collection of different styles and genres: interpretations of Peter Gabriel's work in the form of mashups, remixes, covers and variations. Most of us have heard his original songs, but this program explores influences and inspirations of former Genesis lead and solo artist extraordinare: Peter Gabriel in these effectively de-facto collaborations with other artists who have taken that work and done interesting things with it. The Peter Gabriel Remix Project is a 'Best Of' compilation of obscure ephemeral rarities, DIY interpretations, versions, mixes, interview clips, and overall variations on Peter Gabriel's music in order to show the scope, breadth and influence of his life's ( so far ) work. From his departure from the rock band Genesis in the 70's to his solo work, collaborations and politically-minded work, his activism and beyond it's all covered here - A 3 hour collage mix / tribute. Best if heard with headphones!

  NCN - Daddy Issues | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:00

A show for everyone with a father! Around the family holiday season comes a mix that was first played on 11/20/11 on Plundercast and DFM about issues that spring up between fathers and their kids (especially sons) and... a situation we can all understand: 'Daddy Issues'--who do we know who doesn't have them? Even daddies! A creative collage mix of instances in popular and not-so-popular culture in which the subject is dealt with and explored. Mutated music clips from the likes of Johnny Cash, Pink Floyd, Cat Stevens, The Nice, Harry Chapin, Linkin Park, movies like The Great Santini (1979) and A Boy's Life (1993) and remixed comedy from Kids in the Hall, George Carlin and Mr. Show and many others. Get an extra hankie for this one. One of the most moving show's we've done (IMHO).

  NCN - They're Coming to Shoot JFK, Ha Haa! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:00

This was originally played on the 52nd anniversary of the JFK assassination: November 22nd, 2015 to about 15 people between plundercast.net and http://dfm.nu out of Amsterdam and it was well-received. It is a bit of a 'best of' Puzzling Evidence retrospective borrowing material from the 2011 Special we did on The Puzzling Evidence Show including live mixed collages and song as well as monologues from the November 8th, 2013 Puzzling Evidence Show (which commemorated the 50th Anniversary of the assassination). Much collaged material in here about JFK as well as, sprinkled throughout, pretty much all the versions, treatments, variations and covers of 'They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha Haa!' by Napolean XIV originally. - 3 hours.

  NCN - Mad or Bad: The Psychopath Remix | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:00

Note--Some material in this program may be NSFW or triggering. Listener discretion advised! Webcast live, originally on October 25th, 2015 (also in the Second Life Burning Man virtual environment) a show about psychopaths, narcissists, sociopaths: Who among us can say they have not been affected? Not to worry, this program has a LOT of special information on them and advice on how to deal with and avoid them. A psychedelic audio documentary, this is a new, practical-minded, informative, deeply inspired, and one of the most worked-on and complex shows of ours in a long time... a vibrant cross-section of voices, at once musical, scholarly, historic, and artistic, concerned with psychopathy, sociopaths, narcissists, criminals, and the problem of evil in individuals, and in society at large. Is the world getting more psychopathic? Is the world run by psychopaths? And what, if anything, can we do about it? - A 3 hour mix.

  NCN - The Gun Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:00

Webcast originally on October 18th, 2015 to dozens of listeners--over a couple of weeks after the Umpqua Community College shooting in Oregon. A cultural commentary made up of news, clips of politicians, comedians and pundits addressing the gun issue, songs about guns, the controversy of gun control, and a digital deconstruction overall of the endemic gun problem in America which gets more ingrained with every mass shooting. This was simulcast originally in the DFM Second Life Burning Man virtual environment at the time. It has some re-worked material from Don Joyce's solo show 'Guns' on Over the Edge (Negativland's radio show) from 1994. Running throughout the show also is a dramatization of Shirley Jackson's short story 'The Lottery'. - A 3-hour mix.
