to show - this time I'm remembering to email
Good morning, Peter,
Last week, I got
distracted before I could say, I hear you. For
Wrote you c/o the station many years ago.
I like the new time slot: after
working in my studio, Iím listening while having breakfast.
Interrupting same to say: Kurt
Vonnegut Jr. does it with words, you with sound
and I do it with visual images - a way of
seeing/commenting/reorganizing the world.
I hear you.
Iíve been enjoying
your end year roundups for a long long time, too.

Fun for the ears! Peter is a master at
summing up the year in audio! Collect them all! The Best!
Peter Bochan's 'year in review' is an
annual New Years tradition for me.
If you have never heard the award winning show, listen
below to the most unique and best produced of the
Peter Bochan's always stunning annual
year-end review in sound.
From: David Art
My Dad would come home from teaching at the
and after taking a shower he would take his emergency radio
and retire to the living room until dinner time to
listen to WBAI.
I only had a passing interest in what he was listening to
until one New Years Eve.
I was getting ready for the evening festivities and my Dad
had the radio playing
when shortcut through 1987 came on.
I don't know if I even made it to the party
but I do know you program has been a part of my life ever
thank you Peter Bochan.
Hi Peter- It's good to see the website alive again!
A month ago I started to pledge to wbai & order your $50 thumb drive that I think was called 'The Best of WBAI'. I was a bit short of money so I put it off until today. Now I don't see it offered anymore. Am I too late to get it? Thanks (for all you do), Tom
My husband and I try to always listen to your radio segment on WBAI. Unfortunately, since you were switched to Mondays I haven't been able to listen to you since I work in a pre-k class.
Your music compilations are wonderful,they are what I would love to mix together if I had the talent.
Do you sell your mixed CDs? And where...I would love to buy them.
Also, selfishly,I wish you had a daily show!!!

A Shortcut Back To Dallas was a masterpiece. My God, please let Mr. Boshan know
that for this woman who was a little to young to have been there, I felt like I was today.
Peter...WPKN show on Nov. 7...
can you share the playlist from the first portion of the
show up to the break after the ukulele spots?
Always a great show...WBAI long time
member. Were you at Vibes? I saw the PKN
glad you are still connected to old BAI...looking
forward to the year end show!
Best wishes...Michael Iorio

Hello-I'm a listener from st pete florida.
After listening to last saturdays show I had to listen to it
again.It was very good .
Tampa has WMNF that is similar and I'm a long time
Such deep human contact without commercialism over time has
quite a effect on objectivity.
I will definitely contribute more for your shows continuation.

I'm looking for a song I used to hear on the radio about 25
It went like this:
"Well, I hate to get melon-cauliflower, but we cantaloupe
Honeydew you love me too...."
(and the rest of it was all fruits and veggies too)
I thought it was called the Cantaloupe Song, but I
haven't been able to locate it.
Ever hear of it?

I went to the website, yours and WBAI,
the songs you played from today, Saturday,
I am specifically wanting to know who was the artist
for "I do not want what I have not got..." Also, if I
can buy the record... if you know where?
I loved that song and the artist... so much acceptance
Hope to hear from you.

This is the very first response I have ever written in my
entire 39 years. Richard Belzer is an idiot.
What is it about actors that gives them this attitude of
I joined the service in 1984 and would join again. I may have
to before this third world war is over.
Of course, Richard Belzer would'nt because it is he who has no
true understanding of his place in the universe.
Completely self serving (even supporting charities is a way of
patting yourself on the back), most celebrities have
sacrificed, but for themselves, not others.
I place NO confidence in his twenty newspaper reading
ability if all he reads is what he chooses to read.
The results of U.S. military actions will only truly be
known years in the future and cannot be guaged by pundits and
Ronald Reagan was a LEADER. That fact is what made him
Of course he was called an idiot just like George Bush.
So now I say " Richard Belzer is an idiot!
" Knowing full well that twenty years from now I could be
proven completely wrong ( I wont be, of course ),
but I would rather be on the side of courage and
fortitute than on the side of defeatism and fear.

Peter ... I still don't know how I feel about the results of
but M. Ward has made a masterful album.
Are your broadcast archived anywhere?
What I think is the critical problem facing most music
how to wade though the 35,000 cds released each year
in the US alone ..
most are sh*t .. but than again everyone is entitled to
their own s**t.
All Mixed Up functions for me as one of my trusted
filters and I am grateful that you still care
and are so eclectically creative in your programming,

You are great. Love your show. I need to know who
this Madeleine Parou(sp) is? I LOVe her voice.
I need to know all I can about her. She is
sensational. Did you say she is preforming somewhere in
the city soon.
Please give me all the information you can on her.
If you have tickets to hear her that would be nice but
the info is enough. I need her CD.

I came across your program this past Saturday as I was biking
to Northern Jersey. It was an amazing production that
had me so involved
that I made it to my destination in record time (I couldn't
feel the burn in my legs).
Listen, I don't know if you know much about Gen Art - but we
do all sorts of
events to showcase emerging artists in film, fashion, art and
music and I
definitely could see somewhere down the line making use of one
programs as an art installation of sorts...
Anyway - thanks for making my evening Saturday.

I haven't listened regularly to a radio show for many years.
You do a tremendous, inventive job and I tune in every week.
Thanks very much.
I particularly loved the July 3 show and am off to find Kris
Delmhorst and Sis Cunningham.
Check out Overlord, a band based in Philadelphia
Essentially one guy, George Pasles, who I think would prefer
to do it all --
the white Prince -- but who obviously has to have a band when
he plays live.
They just played Meow Mix and will play here again at the end
of the month.
The albums are nearly all Pasles playing everything. Just
