Episode 34 - Chad Allen of Switched On
Chad Allen runs the Switched On Synthesizer store in Austin, TX. He was first attracted to the novelty records of Dr. Demento. Later he became a big fan of Zolo music, and immersed himself in the music of Pee Wee's Playhouse, Mark Mothersbaugh, the Residents, and XTC. He moved to Austin from Portland and started a radio show devoted to this music and started his own Zolo band the Zom Zoms. We had him over to play his mini Yamaha synth, and talk about music specifically as it pertains to the synthesizer. Enjoy!
