This radio show honours its ANCESTORS, those musicians who’ve passed beyond the veil but whom still have a direct impact on the program. Among these are Joe Meek,
whose song I Hear A New World is the clarion call heralding the arrival of each weekly episode. Another is Karlheinz Stockhausen,
who was musical mentor to Holger Czukay, and continues on as a musical advisor in the hosts dreams. The program itself is named after Czukay’s solo album -and song- On the Way to the Peak of Normal. Czukay is still living, making him a revered ELDER.
This program also honours the legacy of its original founder, Craig Kelly, whom founded the show in the mid-eighties. He himself took over from the show Another Music In A Different Kitchen (named after a Buzzcocks album). Later, throughout the nineties Carrie Nation was also on deck.
In the early years of this decade a few others joined the mission, including Justin and Android. When Craig “retired” to his villa in Price Hill where he is mastering his demon of a piano, attacking it on the black and white keys, Justin took over. Brian “Thriftstore Leather” Riley was recruited to the cause for a time, remaining until his move to Philadelphia in pursuit of other sonic activities.
The show continues to be guided in the future by its associate SPIRITS.
