"EMUSIC," an electronic, ambient, and space music show, airs each Thursday at 11:04 pm on WDIY 88.1 FM, Allentown and Bethlehem, PA and 93.9 FM in Easton, PA and Phillipsburg, NJ. Show #210 March 29, 2001. RECAP: On this show, I concluded the month-long focus on Robert Scott Thompson, an Associate Professor of Music at Georgia State University in Atlanta where he is also the director of CARA, the Center for Audio Recording Arts. Robert has releases in several genres and on many labels. The feature CD at Midnight was "In Ruins" on his own Aucourant label. Robert says that this was the world premier of this CD on radio! I also played music by James Johnson and Baird Hersey as a preview to the next Gathering. James is a solo act and Baird is the leader of Prana, an eight member group led by Baird. They employ overtone singing methods. In the first hour of EMUSIC, I conducted a live phone interview with James Johnson. This was a special event to celebrate the start of WDIY's "Hurry On Spring" Membership Campaign.

Just pretend it's one of Robert's Sleep Concerts and have your radio on low all night long. One autographed copy of "Somnium" will be available as a thank you gift to the first person to pledge $150 during the show. The following week will begin the Special Focus for April on James Johnson.
