Convergence Zone.012 – remembering Dave Smith

first aired May 30 2023

This week on Convergence Zone, I’m excited to play new music I’m loving from artists like Yaeji, Eydís Evenson, Deborah Martin & Jill Haley, Bluetech, Siren and the Sea — and debuting a single from the upcoming self-titled debut LP by The Conspiracy Tapes

Awesome local music from AeTopus, Dreamstate Logic,  MIDI Janitor, Mt, Fog, and Style.King.Of.The.Week

And remembering the great Dave Smith, creator of the celebrated Prophet synthesizers — with music by dedicated players of his gear such as Betamaxx with FM Attack, CHVRCHES, and Shannon Hammett of LEATHERS and ACTORS

(other surprises too)

Convergence Zone arrives Tuesday nights at 10:30pm PDT on 90.7 KSER-FM, 89.9 KXIR-FM, and
