The Resident’s Big World Debut…

September 6, 2008

…by many accounts, happened on KBOO in 1977:

‘The Residents’ were introduced to the world on Bill Reinhardt’s Radio Lab show with the first public broadcast of “Santa Dog” in 1972. After becoming friends and promoting the Residents on the air, Bill was given many recordings and rare material. (The first copies of “Meet the Residents” were sold at Music Millennium in PDX). The Residents designed several program guide covers and became a staple of the station’s progressive sonic weirdness. The ‘Special’ was made exclusively for KBOO; produced and edited by Homer Flynn, Jay Clem and Hardy Fox. Cryptic Corp. 1977 (the date is wrong in the video backdrop) “Baby Sex” and “The Warner Bros. Album” were also rare treats on KBOO.
