Incorrect Music - 2000

Music expert, author, and WFMU DJ Irwin Chusid sifted a lot of music to find what he describes as Incorrect or Outsider Music. He wrote a great book about this which you may be able to find. He also did a WFMU show called Incorrect Music with the clever and quick Michelle Boule' for some years. The show has ended and Irwin is retired. But. There still a way you can download a giant bunch of these shows and you will find that way in the comments.

Firesign Theatre - Boom Dot Bust - 1999 - Updated!

A reviewer said: "Boom Dot Bust" is wonderful--and totally unexpected. After waiting 20 years for a new creation ("The Three Faces of Al" was good, but Nick Danger was not new) I felt let down by "Give Me Imortality..." which was funny but pretty shallow. I was thinking "you can't catch lightning in a bottle twice" when "BDB" arrived. It was like finding a Firesign record from 1975 that I hadn't heard before. It has everything I love about Firesign: layer-upon-layer of delightful word-play, satire, and verbal slapstick. Just like "Bozos" you can listen over and over, with repeated pleasures-of-discovery. The 4 or 5 have recaptured their old magic. My wife and kids don't understand any of it, though I've tried and tried to explain my "Uh Clem" license plate. If you enjoyed any classic Firesign, you'll enjoy Boom Dot Bust". Link in comments.

Firesign Theatre - Alternative Rose Parade - Video

On 1/1/2000 the Firesign Theatre rang in the new millennium by broadcasting from the Pacifica radio studios and giving us The Alternative Rose Parade. Listeners were encouraged to tune in the actual Rose Parade television broadcast - with no sound - and listen to the Firesign radio commentary instead. Enjoy. The Firesign voice-over begins at the 2:18 minute mark. Link in comments.
