Genesis: Live 1973 – First time in HD with Enhanced Soundtrack
There were many promotional performances that were filmed in 16mm like this (looks like 16mm to me, anyway). RadioInfoWeb lost such a film, a performance of “Bloody Well Right” by SuperTramp. It’s good to see these films get preserved before they fade with time.
Hi, Rex here with a webified version of “My Favorite Things”. In the early 1970’s I was well into my FreeForm radio thing, at a radio station in NY State near the border and Montreal, Canada. A radio station in Montreal, CHOM-FM was very progressive, and playing awesome music. I listened to it a lot. It was bi-lingual: the DJ’s slipped easily back and forth between French and English. I had learned to do the same, and started a television production company in Montreal with a native French speaker as my partner to produce bi-lingual TV ads. It was the heyday of Quebecoise music, and there was much to love about this local French phenomenon of prog rock sometimes called “Frog Rock”.
Perhaps my favorite Quebecoise band was Contraction. I got a chance to see them perform in Montreal. Their best album is difficult to find, and when you can, it’s usually expensive. But some of the tracks are available on YouTube for all of us to share (and they can be heard on my shows from time to time on Radio InfoWeb). Here’s a beautiful example of “Frog Rock” from Contraction (1972): “Delire”

Experience with running “chill sets” during working weekdays indicated that a better way would be to have a 24hr Deep Space Chill stream. So that’s what we’ve done. You can listen via TuneIn.com with your browser, or using the TuneIn App. Accept no substitutes! As a German listener told us: “Deep Space Chill is The Hammer“.
This is not your mother’s Chill music. This is Deep Space Chill… because it’s very cold in deep space. Here are some of the parameters we’ve used for selecting the music you’ll find in rotating sets on the chill channel…
Good for meditating, work, or spacing way out
Good for inter-stellar and inter-galactic space travel
No vocals. Vocalizations (you know, the “ethereal female” variety) are held to a strict minimum
No thumpa-thumpa Nazi duck-step music that pervades popular techno, house, and chill
An emphasis on “concrete” music (sorry to use a French word, but that’s the best one)
De-emphasis of beat-orientation, pop-orientation, and even melody orientation
Mostly down-tempo; as is our wont, tempo and other qualities are modulated into arcs to produce an organic and/or spacey ebb and flow. Dig it!
Some jazz flavor is allowed
Some exceptions have sneaked in, but we allowed them for various reasons including variety (and the limited amount of music that meets our specs)

For chill on the mainstream (the main Radio InfoWeb stream), there are shows in the mix that includes “Music from the Minds of Space” and others that provides sets of music with a similar sensibility.
As always, we really appreciate your feedback. Feel free to call, text, or email us anytime. To find out how, all you have to do is listen! [To limit spam, we don’t post much contact information on the website. We are, after all, a radio station first, a website second.]
Here’s a tune that you may hear when any Radio InfoWeb DJ is on. It’s a painfully, beautifully bitter-sweet tune that will entrance you. To be honest, I try not to cry when I hear this. This version is on the ‘Tube from 3/28/1981: Grateful Dead Live at Rockpalast Essen Germany.
