Join host Tom Wilson as he presents a special live recording of one of the greatest avant jazz/rock bands ever - Soft Machine. This music was recorded 40 years ago, May 17th, 1973, in Germany. The great significance of this recording is the excellent sound quality. In addition, it features Gary Boyle on guitar and Art Themen on sax, both of whom help to make this a unique - yet, short lived - version of the band. Two pioneers of avant garde music and long time friends, Brian Eno and Robert Fripp will be showcased as well. Both gentlemen celebrate birthdays this week.

The month of May continues at a hectic pace. Spring is in full bloom and Mother's Day arrives this Sunday, so "Theme Attic," the radio show that picks themes and plays music from a variety of genres about selected subjects, will play sets relating to both topics. Since "Theme Attic" is also moving to Wednesdays, (but also at 10AM starting next week), it only seems appropriate to play some tunes about moving.
