Live Broadcast on WBFO, Gary Storm’s ‘Oil Of Dog’ Radio Show – 07/06/1979


Here are a couple of original tunes from 1979 when Gary Storm invited Parousia to play live on the air for the “Oil Of Dog” late night radio show, WBFO the University of Buffalo (U.B.) radio station.

WBFO played mostly jazz during the day, as far as I recall, but late at night they let Gary play all kinds of weird, often obscure, great music that you would be hard pressed to discover otherwise.  Long live progressive rock.

In that spirit, he decided to let a bunch of ambitious unknown Buffalo kids invade his studio late one Friday night in the summer of 1979, and the tunes you can hear above are an example of what that led to.  I remember it was quite cramped in that radio studio for a seven piece band to set up and play in, back in the days before digital sound when you had to actually bring every instrument you needed to get the sounds you wanted.  We were so smooshed together you can hear our vocal microphones feeding back into one another, especially during the song, ‘Cotton Holiday’.

Gary moved on to a few other Buffalo stations in his career, but his ‘Oil of Dog’ stint at WBFO made him legendary in my opinion, he expanded many a mind with music alone (you had to provide your own drugs)!  Thanks for the opportunity, Gary Storm!
