This may well be the last episode of TCN. The origin of the project was collaborative and collective and over time the we shrank and the energy for the project shrank correspondingly. With the end of this chapter of TCN there begins another audio project that will be announced shortly.

TCN Radio – November 2013

Projects that last, find their rhythm and stick with it. TCN is a very East Bay (as in it could only exist and be created here) kind of project and contorting it into another shape (as we implied in last episodes writeup) seems like a bad idea.

We are going to continue to do TCN and keep it just the way it is. We’ll probably stick to the once a month schedule we have for now. That said we do have at least one other audio project in the works that will probably launch later this month. Keep an eye open for that.

Here is your November 2013 episode of TCN Radio.

00:28 Introduction
01:40 Epic Bakunin
10:20 Pencil
13:23 Audrey
18:05 Musical break
19:00 GJ Resistor on Paranoia
22:15 Any shit will do
29:08 Printer
31:00 Klee Benally interview on spirituality
37:33 GJ Resistor on Prison
50:00 Musical outro

TCN Radio is Back! – August 2013

You feared it would happen and now it has… TCN radio is back on the air with a new episode today and big plans for the future.

We’re going to take a couple episodes to figure out how to turn all these knobs, hack all the Icecast servers, and maybe buy some more audio equipment but then we hope to turn TCN into a live, streaming, call-in show. Plan for it on Saturday mornings later this year.

Until that time, and even after, TCN will continue to provide you an audio experience of East Bay anarchy. This means performance, humor, interviews, and music. It also means our skewed view of the world writ large. Large enough to change the world? Probably not, but perhaps large enough to see (if you are already looking in the right direction)… forever!

This is officially the August 2013 episode of TCN Radio and here is how it breaks down

00:38 Introduction
1:53 Interview with John Zerzan
11:10 Breakdown I
11:20 Attentat I
13:40 Interview with an editor from the Sovereign Self
24:30 Thus Spake Zarathustra
34:45 Interview with Blackbird Raum
45:00 Breakdown II
46:87 Attentat II
49:50 Outro
