NCN - Songs from the Flood Zone
March 04, 2017
Songs inspired by rain and floods and our recent geographically close brush with the rising water in San Jose, recently. A simultaneous sequel to our program 'The Rain Show' and also the latest installment in our 'Elements' series (which included 'The Earth Sleeps Alone and 'Share the Air'). We take a look at the effects of climate change and the universal rising of sea levels in the future and many many songs about rain and flooding in this compilation of water music. Sprinkled throughout the program are excerpts from a high quality copy the 'Best' of Don Joyce's 'The Rain Show' on Over the Edge, which came out a couple hours after coincidentally webcast our 'The Rain Show' in 2014. - 3 hours

NCN - The Devo Remix Remix Project
February 15, 2017
Webcast originally on February 12th, 2017--This is a collection of remixes of Devo songs, mostly culled from Soundcloud artists and then selected for the best ones. A trilogy-completing 'sister show' to NCN's 'The Devo Show' as well as our 'The No Devo Devo Show', this installment concentrates exclusively on remixes (though technically a cover or two might have slipped through). Enjoy this somewhat loopy all-remix version of the spudboys' work (with several versions of 'What We Do' as a running leitmotif throughout). Put together at the last minute, a day before showtime, as inspired by Stephen McQuillen, during a period that we tried to pry our brains away from Trump news in the first month of his presidency. This program seemed appropriately enough to be an obliquely relevant distraction for the time being. Playlist is in internal id3 tag of the mp3. - Over 2 hour show.

NCN - Information Is Not Knowledge
February 07, 2017
Weeee're Baaack! Thanks to YOU! Webcast originally on January 1st, 2017--We kick off the start of 2017 with a brand new offering about fake news, information overload, epistemological conundrums, choice nuggets of audio plunderphonia, new music, a look ahead at what might happen in 2017, and generally the BEST of the year (so far). Just kidding. We also have Rev. Twobeans' new Star Wars mix and some new (and older, rare) Negativland/OTE (Over the Edge) clips. Thanks to all who helped us get a new computer with which to create our mixes and continue our Latent Einstein Outreach Ministry. The title refers to quotes from Einstein (pictured) and Frank Zappa: two 20th Century geniuses we admire. - 3 hour mix.

NCN - It's Almost Over: The 2016 Election Remix Special
November 07, 2016
Webcast on November 6th, 2016 right before Election Day eve. This is is a more fully and further developed mix we did a couple weeks before, in the virtual Second Life environment, and on DFM out of Amsterdam and on our stream. This is a round-up collection of (mostly humorous) remixes, mashups, collages, 'Trumpstep' (one could say) interpretations (heavy on the much more sample-able Trump in the treatment here), also protest songs, but probably mostly homemade audio mixes, and works, that creatively came out of the 2016 Presidential Election season from the public at large all under one roof for the first time. This is what we consider to be the 'best' efforts of the political season offered here for the purpose of criticism, commentary, posterity, satire and the hope of capturing the zeitgeist of this politically-charged time in U.S. history. - 2hrs. 50 min.

NCN - Fapcore 2016
April 04, 2016
Note--Subject matter, and some language may be NSFW. Listener Discretion Advised. NCN invites you to get a grip, as you rock out with your... headphones ON while listening to this sonically risque' radio ride. Yes, a new show all about... THAT. Kind of a taboo subject, but well, hell when has that ever stopped us? A companion piece to NCN - Bootycore 2014, this program was originally webcast on March 20th, 2016--to about a dozen people--and hosted by (the late) James Mason, and features a wide variety of musical remixes and comedic treatments about humanity's favorite solitary pastime. An attempt to normalize an increasingly relevant cultural topic, in a hopefully tasteful and entertaining manner, by providing a cultural overview of its various treatments in music and comedy. A 3-hour semi-psychedelic 'syntopical' mix.
