Thank you deadcrow for the kind words.  I am very happy you listened to and enjoyed SPACE PIRATE RADIO.
 
Please don't even think of compiling a Wikipedia bio from these comments.  I would only have to correct it. Wink
I came out of the woodwork in many ways to cheerfully confront some of the misinformation that has appeared here. Wink Wink If you need any basic info on the show, you can find it on my Melting Watchtowre blog at guyguden.blogspot.com.  A complete biography is in the works.
 
Although sometimes it appears that one is doing a balancing act.  That of a public person who loves to do creative things, juggling with a private person who actually likes being low-key and ( can you believe it? )modest.  A challenge, like so many things in life.  But I'm easy to reach, if there are any questions.  About the show.  About the music.  About the work at hand. 
 
Otherwise, I'd hate to say, like a lead singer of Jefferson Airplane:  "I'm Balin." Big smile   *giggles*
 
Thanks again

A package was found on my mixing board today when I came home.
 Three SPR shows of 2000.

Presently enjoying July.

Grazie mille G'tre mio caro amico,

Merry Christmas and all that good stuff ... for a long dead dog ... I mean show!

Hi,
 
On a Sunday night ... this January 24th ... I will light a candle at midnight, and open a bottle of Blue Nun ... and remember ...

Thanks Pedro for the Blue Nun toast of SPACE PIRATE RADIO and the Christmas show memories too.
 
If you toasted Sunday the 24th, you were celebrating early.  The actual anniversary was the 27th.  Saturday
January 26th at Midnight, Sunday morning January 27th for historians.  The Sunday night/Monday morning
timeslot came later.
 
Myself and the lady celebrated SPACE PIRATE RADIO's 42nd Anniversary by attending the UK production
of George Orwell's 1984, brilliantly interpreted by author/directors Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan at The
 
It was an inspiring evening of theatre, like seeing PINK FLOYD-THE WALL at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, or
the 1970 production of MARAT/SADE I was lucky to be in.  Or dare I say, VOID IN WISCONSIN, NOTHING IS
SACRED and CASANOVA'S LIPS in Santa Barbara.
 
Great work by others has always inspired me to do something a bit above and beyond the expected.  I remember the brand new release of CAN's LANDED helped me finish the script of CASANOVA'S LIPS.
 
And without all the great music we talk about here... where would SPACE PIRATE RADIO have been?
 
Thanks everybody...

Thanks everybody...

Heck, I can easily tell you that SPR was my 1984! As was a lot of the music. But you already knew that! 

Almost everything I have is of the Sunday night stuff, right after JC and his show. you know what's funny? All of a sudden I want to get Bitches Brew, or that Esther album, or that Return to Forever album ... simply because of the bit before your show.

I put on the show that had those two hours of your bits back to back that I had put together, and gracious ... you're right ... that was too much, but it was fun to listen to! And at 65 1/2, I still cracked up to a lot of that stuff.

My speakers, if you remember the AMT's ... just had them "re-coned" again, and they are still blasting away ... a place here in Portland "re-coned" them in 1985 and then did it again a couple of years ago. I had fun blasting the opening of "Deadwing" for my roomate, the day after I had them fixed.

Wouldn't you know it ... just like magic ... I walk into 7/11 to get a cup of wake up juice (decaf with a skinny expresso) and ... Ventura Highway in the sunshine ... MY SONG! Yeah ... made my day! Another trip to Moby Disk, or a bookstore ... or ... using a coat hanger as the gas pedal ... adventures, indeed!

hello everybody,
Just to let you know, that though I regularly check into here as often as I can, time permitting.  And that I
especially enjoy contributing to threads like WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?, READ ANY GOOD BOOKS
LATELY?  and various discussions and polls... my main source of SPACE PIRATE RADIO information seems
to be at Twitter; singular articles and illustrations on THE MELTING WATCHTOWRE at guyguden.BlogSpot.com
and at Facebook (which I held back from for the longest amount of time, but consented to when I found so
many people who don't use the Twit Hair).
 
I still hope to come back here and answer to some of the outrageous, one sided posts from eons past.  Although sometimes it doesn't seem worth the effort, an opinion that i know to be unexplained or an outright
fabrication, bothers me when it remains singular and seemingly unchallenged and definitive.  *giggles*
 
these are desperate times and desperate measures, etc. etc. etc.
 
best of the Winter Solstice to you all (or U-Haul... whichever Moves You).  cheers!

Does an artist have to explain himself?

Let me ask Picasso, or Bunuel ... ohhh that bar of soap ... and the rake?

Times, places ... desperate ... yeah, now that I am on SS, means no extra expenses to make use of, but all in all, it's OK. Health is alright with some issues here and there, which would appear normal for a 66 year old, otherwise ... quite happy. Not really "desperate" unless we're talking about more dreams, visions, ideas and hopes for the overly active young mind? I save those for my writing.

The best to you and family and of course New Year.

I will be playing the Christmas show you did on prime time ... "you with the balloons ... NEXT! ... " and laugh one more time, and absolutely love it. A pat on the back ... well done, my friend ... well done!

BTW, I caught Anderson, Wakeman and Rabin here, and it was a fine show, and yeah, Rick is very good and then some, and Anderson was doing really well all night. Plenty of energy. Reminds me of the days at Micheltorena ... and the "Yes Album" ... goodness! How time has sped through since!

thank you kindly, Pedro.  we had a lot of laughs and cosmic giggles during that time.  how much easier it was then to be on each other's wavelengths.  hoping for a magickal, positive and productive 2017.
best to you...

It's 2017 and I feel like Rumpelstiltskin. I meant to check back here much earlier but to quote Gandalf:

“I was –eh… delayed”.

I've been out so long I missed the grand entrance!  I have some catching up to do with the blog as well. All good things to look forward to.

Hi,

Let me see ... one ... two ... three ... four ... five ... six ... seven ... eight ... nine ... ten ... I'm trying to see if I can get far enough to figure out which birthday it will be Thursday Night/Friday Morning!

I shall be up all night for this one, playing nothing but ... many shows!

Happy Birthday SPR, you ol' tripping sun!

Thank you, Pedro.  Today would make it the 43rd anniversary of SPACE PIRATE RADIO.
 
Celebrated by spending two nights with Stick Men in Studio City.  Our seats were on stage left with Tony and Pat.  You couldn't get closer.  And finally got to meet Markus Reuter.  Very nice folks.  Great shows.
 
And now to prepare for Jean-Michel Jarre...
 
43 years?  Feels like only 45.  Cheers!

I am entertaining the thought of making the trip to Berkeley and catch the show there, but will have to make this decision quickly, as I have a feeling the tickets will fly to Katmandu or Siberia real quick and that will be that.

The only logistic is driving down or flying and rent a car, though I am not a great fan of driving in that area at all, though I would not have to cross the bridge which is a nice thing. I could fly to Oakland and back easily enough from PDX.

Hope to see you there, or around sometime ... one last handshake before time says goodbye ... to us all ... all that is left is a recording of this or that for me ... and some old memories.
