Mellotronarama

David Haldeman is the host of "Dead Electric," the program on KSER that follows mine on Friday nights. A couple months ago, David presented a special installment that he called "Mellotronarama." It's a two-hour special devoted to the Mellotron -- its history, its sound and its influence. Lots of vintage prog and "switched-on" classical music such as Tomita. I really enjoyed it.

Last night, whether by accident or by intent, KSER aired a rerun of "Mellotronarama." It's on the replayer page for the next two weeks, if you'd like to check it out. Select Friday 11 September, then click the 10PM link. (David's program runs till 12:30AM, so you'll need to select the Saturday page to hear the last half-hour.)

The writer and filmmaker Dennis Cooper's blog did a day devoted to the Mellotron shortly after you made this post. After listening to all these songs using the instrument, I wrote and produced one based around Mellotron samples: [callinamagician.bandcamp.com]
