Hear excerpts from new music's biggest annual event - the 2008 edition of the annual Bang On A Can Marathon, recorded live at the World Financial Center on this edition of New Sounds. There's music from Alarm Will Sound tackling the Beatles' Revolution #9, and perhaps a bit of post-rock pulsetronica from Dan Deacon. Plus, the Crash Ensemble performs Terry Riley's recent work "Loops for Ancient Giant Hairy Nude Warriors Racing Down the Slopes of Battle" complete with electric guitar and ass-whooping distortion. And much more.

If I click "next episode", I get Sunday, September 27 and if I click previous, I get Friday, September 25 and if I type Saturday, September 26, 2009, I get 2008. I just heard a piece, the last one, for tonight's Saturday show and you do not make it easy to find it. What am I doing wrong??
I did not catch all the identifying info ... something that sounded like TIMBER HOLLOW.

Please clarify.
