Mad River Anthology - May 10, 2009 on KHSU-FM

In the spirit of neo-dada free-jazz, these are the spontaneous collaborations of an electric guitarist and an electrifical poet.

Producer Tim Ayers writes:
"Former Mad River Anthology host Nicholas Karavatos returns to the show on a visit from the United Arab Emirates. Nick’s collage of international imagery is accompanied by guitarist Jeff Kelley with his wide array of sound bending foot pedals for an improvised collaboration at the KHSU studio."
