"EMUSIC," an electronic, ambient, and space music show, airs each Thursday at 11pm on WDIY 88.1 FM, Allentown and Bethlehem, PA and 93.9 FM in Easton, PA and Phillipsburg, NJ. Show #135 October 21, 1999. On this show, I continued Oktoberfest EMUSIC-style with a month-long focus on the artist roster of the German label Manikin. The feature CD at midnight was "The Ancient Saga" by Arcanum. Monk and Hearts of Space recording group Coyote Oldman will appear at the Gathering XXI on October 23 at St. Mary's Church Sanctuary. Gathering XXII will see the return of Steve Roach to Philadelphia on November 5 at St. Mary's Church. The Electronic Music Mini Festival will be held at the Theatre 3-in-1 in Huizen, The Netherlands on October 30. Ron Boots & Friends, Syndromeda, Free System Project with Patchwork, Wave World, and Gert Emmens will be the performing artists. Music was played in support of these three outstanding events. I'd like to express my thanks to the listeners who called in their pledges in support of EMUSIC and WDIY. Your support keeps the soundscapes going! Thanks to Steve Roach for the wonderful interview, insights into his musical world, and support of WDIY's membership drive. And thanks to Tales for supporting the cause by supplying copies of Interstellar Memories to use as thank you gifts to send to our listeners who pledged their support.
