On Wednesday evening, November 14th, the 25th Anniversary of WNYC's Spinning On Air was celebrated in the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. The event was hosted by the show's creator David Garland, and featured performances by, and conversations with, very special guests including Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, John Zorn, and Diane Cluck. The eclectic weekly music program Spinning On Air was created in 1987 by David Garland, who's been hosting, producing, engineering, mixing, booking, conceptualizing and planning the show ever since. Garland, a musician and artist, often welcomes passionate, personal, adventurous musicians on the show to perform, and to talk about the creative process and experience. Garland specializes in making connections, offering surprises, and bringing attention to the neglected, forgotten, and uncategorizable. For 25 years WNYC's Spinning On Air has taken listeners to unusual musical places, exemplifying the curiosity and enthusiasm of downtown New York.
