January 23, 2005: NEW RADIO SHOWS

Were you wondering what happened to us? I had some major computer problems
after the holidays and finally had to bite the bullet and buy a new one. But
we're back in action so expect lots of new radio shows in the weeks to come.
Also, I'm working on a MAJOR expansion of the Aural Innovations mail order
catalog, with lots of imported ("imported" to those of you in the US) CD's &
LP's, and the ability to accept credit cards (not just through Paypal). Stay
tuned... I hope to have that ready to go by late February.

We've just uploaded new shows from Aural Innovations Space Rock Radio (show
#118), which is an all Mushroom special, and The Ear-Relevant Music Hoedown
(show #34), which is an all pfMENTUM label special. See the playlists below.

Aural Innovations Space Rock Radio (show #118): MUSHROOM Special

Mushroom are a San Francisco based band that play an exciting blend of
psychedelia, krautrock, jazz, soul and progressive rock. Their music is
mostly instrumental and all improvised, though they also excel at covering
classic songs from the 70's. Two years ago we did our first Mushroom special
(show #19 on The Ear-Relevant Music Hoedown), which is still available to
hear. That show featured selections from the first several Mushroom albums.
This new two part show is EXTRA special because in addition to tracks from
the latest Mushroom album, Glazed Popems, it also includes commentary from
Mushroom drummer and band leader Pat Thomas who shares several UNRELEASED
tracks from the Mushroom archives, including live performances with Daevid
Allen, Kevin Ayers and Pete Brown (of Cream fame).

The Ear-Relevant Music Hoedown (show #34): pfMENTUM Label Special

The Ear-Relevant Music Hoedown was created to give an audio spotlight to the
exciting improvisational, experimental, and general avant-garde rock & jazz
we received in the Aural Innovations mailbox. On this show we feature music

player and composer Jeff Kaiser, and features a variety of exciting
