"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
