Over the Edge Vol. 4: Dick Vaughn’s Moribund Music of the Seventies
Seeland Records


Fabulously overblown re-issue of the formerly cassette-only Over the Edge series entry Dick Vaughn’s Moribund Music of the Seventies, presenting Richard Lyon’s titular soul-less radio personality character in his many failed attempts at radio stardom. The first disc unveils an insidious change to KPFA’s programming to a bland, middle of the road music and canned news segment format called The California Superstation. the horrified and clueless call-ins are priceless, as is Lyon’s portrayal of a huckster who is totally oblivious to his own vapidity. Done in ‘air-check’ style, all songs – horrid though they are – have been culled out of the mix, leaving Dick’s IDs and commercials alone.
Side two, titled Dick Vaughn’s Moribund Music of the Seventies, documents Dick’s failed countdown show to highlight some of the low points of Seventies music. All this is wrapped around some befuddled call-ins (not included on the original issue), an assessment of Dick Vaughn’s pathology by a radio psychiatrist (Dr. Oslo Norway) and some relatively recent updates on the death of Dick Vaughn from Negativland’s 1993 concerts.

For more Negativland mayhem, be sure to visit Carnival of Headaches. He’s got the excellent OTE Time Zones Exchange Project, as well as lots of other goodies.

    My hat’s off to you, hfigurine!

  5. Not corporate scumbags, friend, but the world wide web army of idiot children whiner liars.

  6. Oh, keep your hat on because you’re hairs falling out you balding frog.

  7. Oh yes, I can hear them croaking now and for all time past and present to the future of lies yet undeveloped. Did you not scream when the noise stopped? I am constantly cleaning the fallen hair out of the world wide drain of deceit.
    Don’t forget to floss.
