PSYCHOACOUSTICS COLLECTIVE – HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHIES
Psychoacoustics came into existence on Dec. 25, 1991 when the hosts of the Grateful Dead show needed a holiday substitute. Though not Dead aficionados, they served the audience an eclectic and well-received selection of cerebral, psychedelic sounds from many musical eras, including spoken word and layered music mixes. Soon the hosts had a weekly time slot, an hour of which is dedicated to bringing the Church of the SubGenius radio ministry to WORT via the "Hour of Slack." Psychoacoustics has moved through different weekdays and time slots and changed co-hosts over the years, but the concept has remained constant: "a head trip through the decades" with a healthy dose of politics, humor and modern counterculture sensibilities.
Rev. Velveteen, co-founder of the Show, has been in radio for over a quarter of a century. Her favorite part is taking to the airwaves to blow the minds of listeners. She also handles the business end of the schtick, and for fun she’s a mascot for roller derby as well as a music collector, writer, photographer, and globetrotting slacktivist.
Father Angus is one of the founding members of the Psychoacoustics collective, which was spawned on Christmas Day, 1991, in much the same manner as another savior of the human race. When he hasn’t been wreaking radio havoc on WORT, he has worked in the publishing and translation industries and also writes various things on the side. For fun he grows orchids and cacti, plays with a python, and casts spells on unsuspecting neighbors.
Bad Sister Heidi has been a part of the Psychoacoustics collective from almost the very beginning. In her other life she is an HIV prevention educator at AIDS Network and with the Vaudeville Vixens of the Mad Rollin' Dolls roller derby league. …
Brother Selector started with the collective by hosting a Ska show every first Thursday of the month. He now presides over every fifth Thursday with an eclectic mix of rock, hip hop, reggae and, yes, ska music as well as the Hour of Slack. He also DJs around town, most notably on Thursdays at Jolly Bob’s where he is known as Natural Selector, part of the Formula Sound System, spinning reggae, dancehall, ska, reggaeton and dub.
