Greetings from Los Angeles. Robert here from the PowerBook duo TOG.
I'm proud to announce the debut of little yellow doll, a new on-line broadcast dedicated to experimental music. (Broadcast times, details, and contact info are at the bottom of this page.)
Everyone is invited to tune in to the little yellow doll broadcast, and to contact me with requests, comments, upcoming concert info, etc.
little yellow doll is always interested in featuring new experimental artists and their works, so if you are interested in having your works (or works that you enjoy) placed in our ever-growing library for on-line broadcast and rotation, feel free to send them in (any format is acceptable).
little yellow doll is also currently scheduling shows spotlighting individual experimental artists. (2 hours of air-time dedicated to your works, an interview, and a live in-studio concert if you are in the LA area.) Please contact me for more information.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
