In celebration of our partnership with the Harwich (UK) Festival of the Arts and in recognition of the anniversary of the Mayflower landing in Provincetown, we aired excerpts of this year’s festival. Harwich, England was the home of the captain of the Mayflower, Christopher Jones.
One of the performers featured in that broadcast was Matthew Crampton. Matthew has produced a video about Harwich, the Mayflower and other stories of migration:
For centuries Harwich has seen migrants leave for better things – and arrive in search of sanctuary. Here we meet some of these desperate people. And we see how such human cargo – such as transportees, the enslaved, kindertransport and other refugeess – has shaped Britain, and America.

Come tune in turn on and freak out to the full tilt outermost mooncusser primitive chunka chunka of THE SQUID JIGGER’S BLEND.
An in progress and in motion sonic collage of way gone pre-psychedelic garage thrown in with some murky superfuzz post-grunge shamanistic screaming life rantings, the sweetly fecund sounds of low tide surf guitar noir, some down low distorted reverbed revivalist tube amped snake oil, the romantic cynical conceptual continuity of obscure Frank Zappa guitar tunings, goofy-ass white boy emoh hip drop humpty bumps and the existential flotsam and jetsam that spurts forth from Sonic Trout.
Although we would love to invite everyone to train to become a DJ, we’re unable to welcome new volunteers into the office due to the pandemic. New contributors are welcome if able to work from home.
