Gino Robair recorded this cassette of ham radio in Alaska while on tour with organist Dave Hyatt, taking his feed off the radio of a friendly operator while they listened to an anonymous operator trolling the airwaves and taunting others, over strange whines and radio timbre.

Robair, Gino : Two Pieces, Two Decades Apart [CASSETTE] (Banned Productions)

Label: Banned Productions    
Released in: USA    

"During a tour to Fairbanks, Alaska with organist Dave Hyatt, I stayed with a ham operator named Chuck, who allowed me to scan through the channels on his radio and record the results. Poking through the lovely radio-waves timbres was someone - we would now call him a troll - happily taunting the other operators. Recorded to cassette 9/25/94. this excerpt is heard as recorded; no overdubs. Been thinking a lot about dick Higgins lately, to whom foewandombwhnw is dedicated (and from whom the title was cribbed)."-Gino Robair
