THE NEGATIVLAND TELETOUR ON WUSB - 1988

Printer-friendly version

In 1988, on a Wednesday morning at midnight, WUSB broadcast something known as the Negativland Teletour. I had absolutely nothing to do with this other than enthusiastically supporting its broadcast. The band would put together a unique program for each noncommercial station that called them. You'll hear a sound check with WUSB's Chris Crowley before material from luminaries like The Weatherman (along with a legal ID) and Crosley Bendix, including a negative review of the radio dial in northern California, "Nesbitt's Lime Soda," and "The Playboy Channel." Some WUSB programming follows, including a "Brain Damage" promo!
