Online! The Outpost Radio Network continues to grow with the latest addition "Organ Magic" -
music of the pipe organ. See
Outpost Radio for the complete list. It started in 2010 with

Bob Dylan Tracks,
a station playing exclusively the songs of

Started in late
57 Chevy Radio
playing good 'ol Rock and Roll from the 60s and late 50s and named for
that icon of the era, the 1957 Chevy. This has become one of the top stations on
Live365 with over 4000 listeners most days. It seems old R&R still has some fans,
even if you can't find it on commerical radio any more.
For oldies from a later time, there is
Feel Good Rock, oldies from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. These
stations can be heard any hour of the day, anywhere in the
world! Each station website shows tracks currently playing and upcoming

The Spirit of Woody Guthrie. On several occasions since 2003, I have
provided the music for a words-and-music presentation on the
life and songs of Woody Guthrie. Everyone knows "This Land
Is Your Land" and maybe a few of Woody's other old ballads, but
we found many others, including "spiritual" songs that
are hidden gems! See them on youtube or download mp3s:
Videos: It started
when I pulled an old video out of my files to try out youtube. This
first one was made the time I auditioned for the Survivor TV
show. OK, one of the times. It's called Survivorland
and any similarity to any other song you might have ever heard is, well, not

Doormat Singers. In the mid
1960s, there emerged
around MIT's Cambridge campus a couple of guys doing stupid songs about
student life. They went by the name of the Doormat Singers. For some
unfathomable reason, I have had several inquiries about the Doormat
Singers recently, so I've collected all the junk I can find and put it
In June, 2010,

the name of a text
editor that I
created on the DEC PDP-1 computer in 1962-63. It was subsequently
ported to many other machines, and it was the original text engine for
EMACS. I don't have a bunch of TECO lore here at present, but there is
lots to be found on the web. I particularly enjoyed Tom Almy's page.
TECO support is alive and well! Get the latest distribution

Beginnings of TECO".

The Human Awareness Institute
Producers of workshops on Sex, Love, and Intimacy. Stan Dale, the
founder of the Human Awareness Institute and a dear friend, passed away
on June 8, 2007 leaving behind an unmatched legacy of love and many
thousands of people whose lives have been touched by Stan and the
workshops he created. For me, there is no better way to
Stan than by listening to his voice and his heart through the recordings on this page
dedicated to him.
