LCS ’89: Altering Realities

img0011989 was a busy year marked with experimentation on the Little City in Space show. Substitute players like Brian Anderson, Chuck Isle & Mark Masyga helped keep things aloft–Post-Voiders Peter Stenshoel, Stu Mathews & Jerry maintained the weekly KFAI radio commitment while logging many hours off-the-air tape recording the syndicated LCS series. img001 Early ’89 they (with Bat Lenny) threw a mad space-jam party in downtown St. Paul during a blizzard; The Post-Void Radio Theater appeared on-stage at Minicon for The Philip K. Dick Van Dyke Show; on KFAI, the LCS Universal Top 12 became 10; the show’s first hour format was tweaked (to match the hour-long national show under construction) and the second hour, Little City in Space Farther Out, allowed for diverting, more mysterious excursions outside any boundaries: from sound collage & spoken word to Golden Internet Archive logoCage/Radio Mortuary, it was anything goes.
