A Season In Hell #30: Dirty 30

Tonight in the studio I am so excited to have DADAist, wordsmith, absurdist, Michael Peppe. Peppe has a long performance history, going back to New York City in the mid-70s. He’s been in San Francisco for quite a while now (1980), and I have gotten to know him, seen him perform, had him perform at a few shows I produced over the years as well. On the show tonight Michael performs a part of a new two-and-a-half-hour long piece. He only does about 15 minutes of it.

The site is a great DADA site you should definitely check out. There are some Peppe recordings on there from the late 70’s. It also says he’s dead. So he’s got that going for him, which is nice. I remember listening to WFMU about five years ago, and they were playing some Michael Peppe. the DJ was asking where is Peppe now. I rushed to the computer and sent him an email, screaming that he’s in SF!!!

I’ll have him on again soon.
