MCRH on KCHUNG at HAMMER



Mannlicher Carcano Radio Hour on KCHUNG at The Hammer Museum
Saturday November 23rd 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM
The Hammer Museum Lindbrook Terrace, 10899 Wilshire Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90024
Free admission, $3 validated parking under the museum

Dateline Los Angeles: Mere coincidence? The Mannlicher Carcano Radio Hour, now in its 15th year of improvised live multi-city audio collage based experimental radio broadcasts, have been “randomly” scheduled to participate in the KCHUNG Radio residency at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles on the very day in between the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK and the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald.

Mannlicher Carcano – whose name derives from the rifle allegedly used by LHO to shoot JFK - is an improvisational audio collage group that coalesced in the late-1980’s out of a number of new music, sound art, and post-punk experiments, and has been performing and recording regularly for 25 years -- in spite of not living in the same city for the last 20. Their output has regularly addressed the JFK assassination and its cultural fallout.

For the November 23rd performance in The Hammer courtyard, Los Angeles MCRH anchors Really Happening and Kenneth Friendliness (and whatever other local adjunct members show up) will perform live turntable-plus radio art, drawing heavily on thematic material related to the JFK assassination, including rare radio interviews of Oswald on William Stuckey’s Latin Listening Post program on WDSU New Orleans 3 months before the assassinations.

This performance will be broadcast live on KCHUNG’s Hammer radio frequency, and transmitted via the internet to MCRH HQ in St. John’s Newfoundland, where it will be mixed with signals from Montreal, Guelph, Ontario, and possibly other cities, and rebroadcast over the airwaves and internet. That internet feed will then be picked up and reintegrated into the mix of the Hammer broadcast. We’re through the looking glass here, people!

The Mannlicher Carcano Radio Hour can be heard regularly on CHMR-FM 93.5 Campus and Community Radio in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and can also be accessed on the net at www.mun.ca/chmr every Saturday from 11:30am – 1:30pm PST. More information and download links for recent programs and studio recordings are all available atwww.mannlichercarcano.blogspot.com

November 16th 2013 - an epic performance!




The LA portion was particularly smokin as well. I've been wanting to issue a recording with one stereo channel assigned to the LA performance and one to the final mix of the show - this could be the one! Stay tuned...

The Most Recent MCRH Programs


Not sure which of these are shows, maybe all, will fix later... OK, one of them was a pretty good rock mix, but definitely not Mannlicher. The rest of these are certifiable, get em while they're hot!

We miss you Sandy Loam
