Monday’s broadcast of “The Freak Power Ticket” (September 15) anticipates the 25th anniversary of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s cult television drama, Twin Peaks (which debuted in the spring of 1990) — and celebrates its recent release in a Blu-ray box set billed as containing “The Entire Mystery.” Producer/host Ted Coe will share eclectic sounds connected to that landmark program, part two of a planned series of broadcasts paying tribute to the surrealist writer/director David Lynch.
Special guest “La Lengua“/”Erin Eyesore” (aka former KCSB-FM General Manager Erin Fleming of the blog “Ribbon Around a Bomb“) will call in during the second hour of the show to reveal aspects of Twin Peaks’ die-hard cult: from fan fiction, art, and essays, to the annual Twin Peaks convention in the Pacific Northwest, to the program’s expansive musical influence.
Along with such commentary, “The Freak Power Ticket” will also feature the jazzy original works of composer Angelo Badalamenti and his regular musical collaborator, Lynch, plus the singer Rolling Stone Magazine has called their “dream-pop protégée,” Julee Cruise.
Twin Peaks’ standout soundtrack has had a significant influence on synth-pop and ambient/industrial artists, while its characters and details are widely referenced in popular music from the 1990s through today. We’ll explore those various genres: jazz, experimental new music, rockabilly, metal, punk, ambient, industrial, indie rock, IDM/electronica, synth-pop, trip hop, hiphop, spoken word, and others; plus sounds from older influences, including Broadway and Hollywood musicals.
Featuring: Tony Bennett, Julee Cruise, Charlie Parker, Mount Eerie, Angelo Badalamenti, The Wedding Present, Sinead O’Connor, Camper Van Beethoven, DJ Shadow, Marilyn Manson, Bikini Kill, Anthrax, Moby, and many more.
