WFNX radio: 1989 excerpts


GREETS!  When I lived close to Boston MA (USA) one joy was to listen to WFNX radio FM.  The DJs were playing alternative, weird, cool new stuff.  So I made an attempt to try and listen and with my finger on the record button of my cassette recorder to capture my favorite tracks they played. This is raw, rough, just a sampling of what I heard on WFNX radio and I am pleased to share this as a MP3 archive. 

This was recorded 1989…

  • The cassette starts off with an advert for the MANRAY dance club. I enjoyed going there (1989) for the NEW BEAT music.
  • The end of the cassette features a recording of phone phreaks voice mail, announcing that his BBS crashed.
  • SIDE B is recordings from Yo! MTV Raps

Firefly - Serenity - music mix

Mix produced for the Equality Now Charity Event 2007.  I used many samples & music from the film & tv shows but also mixed in stuff from other sci-fi shows so purists be warned. Hope you enjoy.

After the event was finished I relocated and this mix was forgotten, not shared til now. While dumping data from an old hard drive I found these samples and the rendered mix created in Abelton Live.

DJ Carlos  "Buzz"  cassette side A

DJ Carlos  became a DJ, following in his father and uncle’s footsteps. He visited one of their parties as a 5 year old kid and knew he wanted to be a DJ after seeing all the happy faces on the audience. He started doing all kinds of DJ jobs growing up and in 1992, Joel from A Rave Called Sharon, found him at a Latin club where he was working and invited him to play at their next party. Since that day DJ Carlos played at every weekend rave in San Francisco. In 1993, DJ Carlos became a Resident at Recycle on Wednesdays and Universal Groove on Thursdays, while still playing Saturday raves and Sunday Spundays.

In 1994, DJ Carlos started his own party with DJ Dutch and DJ Christoff, CDCSoundsystem and still playing raves on the weekends. He then started flying to Denver to play at the Come Together Party with DJ Dan, DJ Hippy, DJ Halo, DJ Terry Mullan, and many others. In 1995, a new party was started called Area 51 and Josh Wink  headlined one of them.

I rolled into Colorado circa 1989 and was excited to discover the "Express Club" in Boulder and possibly Colorados first rave crew "Energy Posse" with DJ John Chamie involved.  Just a bit later the "Poor Boys" crew from San Diego relocated to Boulder and started to throw parties, with John as guest DJ.

I love all the DJs in Colorado and danced to everyones sets with much joy but John's sets touched me dearly by his warmth, soul, funk and unique take.  I was a big fan! Later I was introduced and he invited me to his pad for an IronFeather Journal interview.  I see him as a kind, intelligent, talented, international artist and learning that he has relocated to Berlin sounds perfect.  Bravo to mister Chamie!  Thanks for all the cool…


Boxes of letters, graphics, art, flyers and other materials collected for the IronFeather  Journal zine since 1985 to be scanned and shared at during 2021.


 Boxes of collected materials for my zine are destined for the recycle bin. New plan: scan it all. IRONFEATHER COMPENDIUM: letters, graphics, photos, art, flyers and other materials shared at during 2021. @internetarchive #zine #1980s

In the 1980s my hobby was to visit various local libraries in Michigan and look for books with interesting art & graphics, then hit the xerox shops and make tons of copies. Cut and paste them into collections for me to use in my zine IronFeather Journal. I have many boxes of these.
