Art Star Scene Radio
About This Show
Birthed from the annals of downtown New York City’s gritty performance art scene of the mid-90’s and grown through the myriad formats in which we’ve presented our work, Art Star Scene radio is here! Live and uncensored, the main purpose of this show is to promote love, healing and mindfulness in both humorous and serious ways.
You can be an Art Star too!!! As Rev. Jen once wisely said, “we are the least exclusive art movement ever. To be an Art Star all you need is your voice and the belief that someone is listening. Tune in and spread the spread the word, How wonderful it would be if every form of the Art Star Scene exploded around the world!!!

Art Star Scene radio 104: Here Kitty Kitty!!!! (Explicit Content)
Last Saturday me and Kathryn Dunn Presented a special episode of Art Star Scene radio on Radio Free Brooklyn. Sometime in the Spring of 1993 I recorded an album with dear friends from my college Simon's Rock. Almost everyone involved including the studio owner Michael Birnbaum and our producer Adam Widoff were Simon's Rock Alumni. I did lead vocals and wrote all but 3 of the 14 tracks. Tim Heffernan was on guitar and musical arrangements. Matt Swift was on bass, Rob Rudin did drums and percussion. Back up vocals were Barth Anderson and Elise Sideli. We had help from; Randy Sharp doing backing vocals on stretchy pants, Matte Henderson, adding guitar to Hello (by Kim Theurich and Jackie Cares) and Awakening, Melissa Bruce backing vocals on Why Do They Call You Faceboy, Chis Zaloom on pedal steel guitar for Love Me More. Adam Widoff also added guitars to Hello and Mumble Punk and Michael Birnbaum added guitars to Hello, Love Me More and Mumble Punk. This album was made just a few months after the worst tragedy our school had ever experienced. A student obtained an assault rifle. He shot and killed Professor Nacunan Saez and 18 year poet Galen Gibson. Four others were wounded. When his gun jammed he laid it down, called the police and surrendered. The album is dedicated to Saez, Gibson and the Simon's Rock community. It usually takes 2 to 3 months to record, mix and master an album. We did it in 3 days. It was all the studio time I could afford but thanks to the incredible dedication and hard work from everyone involved we pulled it off and it's a damn good album. So why haven't any of my friends from the past 20 years heard of this? After no label would touch it and a shitty performance from me (and only me) at the '93 college reunion. I lost confidence in it and successfully buried it. Now here it is for your your listening pleasure. Here, Kitty Kitty by Faceboy and The Magic Pleeny Salad Circus !!!!!
