Weird and Wonderful with a side of Ram Dass

This week on The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, a preprint of musical selections that have been pooled from a substantial sample size of song populations using the methodology of “quantitatively not sucking”. The scope of these results have no theoretical or technical focus.

End Novemb

It’s another week here in the land of The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, the program created to be a community-driven plethora of varietal contributions, and was for a long time. Now it’s just me, Ashta, screening good music, selecting, and placing in order a mixtape I think you’ll love.

HERE IT IS!!

If you’re a follower already, you’ll know that I fuss over the order of the songs to create the perfect mood – just like when we use to make mixtapes.

Well, not this week.

Facebag

The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour is a one-hour anything-goes festival of sound-good. Every Wednesday morning for 10 years, CHLY 101.7FM listeners in over 40 coastal communities have been subject to the audiocratic whims of local weirdo, Ashta. From 8-9am, she privately relishes the technical reality that terrestrial radio waves saturate a portion of the Earth’s surface with frequencies of her choosing.

This week is no different. Only she’s asking you to follow the @ssvhradio account on Instagram
