>ATC (NPR) has rejected The Indian Piece and will broadcast nothing by FST on thursday. Indian Piece said to be "incomprehensible" by ATC executive.
I saw this piece performed during the Firesign World tour back in 74, and was thrilled to hear it again on the semi-official live at Westbury cd.
sorry if these comments are late. NPR makes no friends by claiming the piece was "incomprehensible". I was stoned off my ass in 74, and i understood every word of it. Controversial, maybe. Thought provoking, possibly, especially of thoughts that might not be encouraged these days.
Oh, well, NPR's loss. I played it during my thanksgiving mix anyway, right after Alice's Restaurant.
Looking forward to April fool's day!
