NCN - Beyond Belief
July 17, 2017
Originally webcast on July 16th, 2017: This is a new 3-hour collage show / mix / program all about belief systems: how they define us, separate us, guide us and how we might envision a world that goes beyond them. Is it better to know than believe? Or, barring both, to then just wonder? Featuring remixed and excerpted work by Sadhguru, Abraham-Hicks, David Icke, Naomi Klein, Robert Anton Wilson, Bill Gates, Carl Sagan and a treatment/review of the new Roger Waters (of Pink Floyd fame) solo offering: 'Is This the Life We Really Want?' Took about 2.5 weeks to put this together.

Includes work by DJ BC, DJ Shylock, DJ MXR, DJ Doc Rok, A plus D, DJ Aristocat, Party Ben, DJ Johnny Red, much much more! - 3 hour mix!

NCN on Plundercast - 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.
