~An Essential Introduction~

Alvy Singer: [addressing the camera] There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly. The... the other important joke, for me, is one that's usually attributed to Groucho Marx; but, I think it appears originally in Freud's "Wit and Its Relation to the Unconscious," and it goes like this - I'm paraphrasing - um, "I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member." That's the key joke of my adult life, in terms of my relationships with women.

Transmission 415

Expanding on the sentiment of Woody Allen's Alvy Singer in Annie Hall, by way of Groucho Marx and Sigmund Freud (what a great dinner party guest list that would be), if you can't get past the infamous "Walkie Talkie Sunrise" intro by Yin and Yan you can't get into Radio Free Wohlman!.


RFW is by design not a Greatest Hits affair, but it could be if I desire. What you hear after the opening cacophony of sound is not a musically safe environment, cooked for mass consumption or designed to shift units. I do not wish to demand that you listen, define how you listen, or desire you to like the contents of every transmission as you listen. But I do want you to listen.

The kitchen-sink mentality is purposely in place to eschew preconceived format conceptions, juxtaposition unlikely partners and expose the RFW Family (you) to artists and music that it might never willingly expose itself to next to toe tapping faves.

Therefore, the Yin & Yan intro will remain in place as a both a gate-keeping barrier of guests that would more than likely not enjoy the members of our illustrious club and to serve as a warning that this is not your standard fare - this is Radio Free Wohlman!

Get past the gate-keepers with OST music from The Trip, Hal Blaine, Emil Richards, The Zodiac-Cosmic Sounds and Paul Beaver & Bernie Krause!

T415 is a 146mb 320k mp3 1:03:53 made loud to be played louder! 

"Good Morning"
