    Music


    Peri Banu vid Sjon (VERSION) by Dungen
    In a Landscape by John Cage
    Quartet for Four Percussionists IV: Fast by John Cage
    Dream by John Cage
    Completely Gone by Ludwig Gorannson
    The Introduction and Chi C’e Per Farmi i Rici from The Girl of the Golden West
    L’approche Du Nuage by Sylvain Chaveu


    Notes


    The story of John Cage in the anechoic chamber was first told to me maybe twenty years ago by my friend Dave Panosky one night while walking around Providence. It was precisely the type of story that I wanted to one day make a show to tell. You can find it in a lot of places including in Cage’s own writing.
    I first came across the second silent room in Alex Ross’ wonderful, The Rest is Noise.
    I also tapped into Puccini and the Girl: History and Reception of Girl of the Golden West by Annie Randall and Rosalind Gray Davis.

    Notes and Reading:
    * Most of the specific history of the White Horse was learned from “Sanctuary: the Inside Story of the Nation’s Second Oldest Gay Bar” by David Olson, reprinted in its entirety on the White Horse’s website.
    * “Gayola: Police Professionalization and the Politics of San Francisco’s Gay Bars, 1950-1968,” by Christopher Agee.
    * June Thomas’ series on the past, present, and future of the gay bar from Slate a few years back.
    * Various articles written on the occasion of the White Horse’s 80th anniversary, including this one from SFGATE.Com
    * Michael Bronski’s A Queer History of the United States.
    * Radically Gay, a collection of Harry Hay’s writing.
    * Incidentally, I watched this interview with Harry Hay from 1996 about gay life in SF in the 30’s multiple times because it’s amazing.

    Music
    * We start with Water in Your Hands by Tommy Guerrero.
    * Hit Anne Muller’s Walzer fur Robert a couple of times.
    * Gaussian Curve does Talk to the Church.

Truly amazing

This is the best podcast I’ve ever listened to. Now the bar is so high that I simply can’t enjoy any other podcasts 😀
During the quarantine I’ve listened all the episodes and I’m truly stunned by Nate’s knowledge and incredible ability to deliver such profound stories in just 10-15 minutes.
