Larry Sundown Lounge podzine

podcast press maproom patio tv room griot geek contact me

Sundown Lounge is a laid back (and often explicit, you bet your ass...) international weekly (biweekly for 2014) podzine of extremely eclectic music, spoken word, weird science, progressive politics, interesting audio goodies, and occasional etc.

Physically, I'm in the completely gentryfied and contentious (and constantly renovated) left coast oasis of art, culture, and social experiment called San Francisco. I have recently landed a base of operations and I'm back in college in pursuit of a new day job, though I'm still experiencing the Bay Area "al fresco," but metaphorically, the beach house is perched at the western end of Golden Gate Park near Sunset Beach. I've added insulation, a few blankets and a portable heater and you can only wear sandals some days, but the sunsets are still wonderful and the scientists, poets and musicians still come through and jam to the surf...
The Open Mic Stage accepts spoken word and music file submissions for play in 'transom' episodes.

Max of 3 audio pieces, please - MP3, AIFF, Ogg Vorbis files, OR 2 - 3 pieces recorded onto a good quality audiocassette. 4 minutes and under per piece is preferred, unless it's really good. Include a short bio and a photo, if possible.

Email: sundownlounge "at" larrywinfield "dot" com. Please submit media download links, no attachments; my email box is too small to accept them, so they'll only get deleted.

The Meaning of "dub"

When you're telling someone about a website without benefit of pen and paper and mention the URL, isn't it clumsy to have to spell out the non-domain part? "http://www." Instead, I use the word "dub" as verbal shorthand that implies the code. So, my site's URL is mentioned in conversation as "dub," When the URL doesn't have "www" in it, just use "slash"...
