Tracy studio owner and performing musician/composer from Minneapolis,who's ears are fine and Noneric from Germany's premier music production video site MusoTalk.de who's ears are unable to distinguish minute changes in pitch... We first talk of plastic figurines and memorabilia as inspired by the Keith Emerson doll, then we're off on to Rich's work on Ramones album Subterranean Jungle, Devo take McDonalds to court, Jay Wasco's amazing rendition of Heart of Gold on the Swiss Army Bass and people who can play and sing one more instruments at a time, we then take the Audiocheck.net hearing challenge, then we discuss electronic drum kits.

Great to have the podcast back! Once again very entertaining and it was cool to hear some of your results on the audiotest site I found. I was quite shocked to discover that my upper limit is around 14 kHz. I heard a 1 dB difference and 10c difference though which seems ok to me. In any case, the guy who created it did a really nice job.

I always marvel at Jay Wasco's incredible playing and innovative instruments. He's quite fun to watch. Kevin Wyatt, who I haven't seen before, really blew me away with the Coltrane. How anyone can do that is beyond me.

Update on SonicTalk 87 - I used the Wizard Master Control Program to run a 16 note sequence and came up with something Tangerine Dreamish: http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6705472

Thanks for the great show.
