John Cage in conversation with Morton Feldman, July 9 1966.
I know these ‘Radio Happenings’ from 20 years ago when I was working on my Feldman dissertation. Still thinking about them. Listening to the first again this morning, it struck me how close their conversational style comes to today’s podcast world. That could almost be John Roderick having a chat with Merlin. (Almost.) A more relaxed tempo back then, but the topics almost the same.

Cage: It may be that we can be with people, but at the same time at a distance.
