It's hard to imagine any low power community radio station manager today watching Alejandro Jodorowsky's bizarre and formally experimental El Topo and The Holy Mountain who wouldn't think he would be the perfect candidate to host a big budget version of Radio Valencia's classic and original program NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND. So naturally that's exactly what's not happening tonight.

Now, granted, the similarities between the drug-fueled midnight movie craze of the early 1970s, and NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND in the mid-2010s are hard to miss, and the inescapable fact that Radio Valencia frequently promises an eclectic crew of collaborators (including Salvador Dali, Mick Jagger, Orson Welles, Pink Floyd, Jean 'Moebius' Giraud, H.R. Giger and Frank Chu), making such a collaboration virtually assured... however, unlike his oft-quoted statement that he never read "Dune" before tackling that project, Jodorowsky did listen to a podcast of NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND and declared it "un-listenable, incomprehensible and utterly inane!", before firing his agent.

So we got Kurt Stenzel, creator of the soundtrack to Frank Pavich's new documentary, Jodorowsky's Dune, instead. Kurt will join Karen Carpenter, Sherilyn Connelly, Bob-Marc, Salvador Dali, Mick Jagger, Orson Welles, Pink Floyd, Jean 'Moebius' Giraud, and H.R. Giger for the FINAL BROADCAST of NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND. OK, we couldn't get Frank Chu, but Kurt Stenzel is the most famous person to come by since those two Norwegian TV stars, what were their names?

NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND: A Quixotic, depressing, un-inspirational and exhaustively futile attempt at radio that should never have been made.
