DESCRIPTION

Respect the Elders.

Embrace the New.

Encourage the Impractical and Improbable,

Without Bias.

 

The venerable magus of the airwaves, Vin Scelsa, utters these commandments to us every Saturday night and we listen. What the artists represented in this show do is a potent elucidation of these vital decrees. Theirs is like nothing else to be found anywhere– the radio, the television, or even the Internet for that matter. It’s an idiot’s delight, blowing like a circle around our skulls, blowing through the buttons of our coats. It carries and encourages us to seek these improbable ends, the conception and the increase. The soul of an idiot is always dancing on the end of her tongue, even when fools rush in. It reminds us of the impractical veracity that love truly is a many splendored thing, and life is brief!
