The lost episode, Lucky #13, has now been found. (Please ignore references to the Full Moon, which was last Friday night. But it’ll come around again, like everything.) Join us for tales of the Old Woman Meteorite and the mysterious warrior-priestesses & priests of the New World, along with a phone call from Brendan Maze, organizer of the Mojave Madness/Holy Harvest Halloween event a week or so back.
Don’t miss our very first live performance of DESERT ORACLE RADIO, at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in downtown Palm Springs. Free reserved seating (only a few seats remain!) is available here.
Sounds heard tonight include the usual desert scavengers recorded in the wild by your host and a new track, “Slumber,” from Joshua Tree’s RedBlueBlackSilver, along with these mysterious sounds:
Tonight we give a “shout out” to Mr. RedBlueBlackSilver, who creates soundscapes like the one we heard tonight, “Normalizer,” at his Joshua Tree lair. Other sounds you’ll hear tonight include the following:
We are back with the ninth episode of DESERT ORACLE RADIO, just as the first signs of Fall arrive in the Mojave High Desert. Tonight we sing the praises of the Cassini mission to Saturn, spend some time with the ghost of JPL founder Jack Parsons out in the Mojave where he completed his “Babalon Working” ritual, and visit with our friend Jason P. Woodbury—who has an interesting tale about the mysterious Casa Grande Domes in Arizona. (He also has a fine article on the subject in the upcoming issue of DESERT ORACLE, the pocket-sized field guide to the strange American desert.
Have you heard the one about Charles Manson “growing up in Amboy”? Or maybe the one about Charles Manson “killing a lot of his victims at Amboy Crater.” We’ve heard these stories, and they’re nonsense. But the true story of the Manson Family in the California Desert is as strange and threatening as the world can get.
We also talk to some ravens, because somebody has got to do it.
Get the episode on iTunes & other such podcast-delivery systems, or listen live on the radio in Joshua Tree and the Mojave High Desert, 10 o’clock Friday nights.
