Zeeber Gold

These are nuggets from our archives. We were a radio commune back in the early days of ZBS. The video artist, Bill Viola, used to refer to us as The Zeebers. We produced and distributed programs for community, college and public radio stations. ZBS was originally founded with the idea of using media to raise consciousness. These radio programs reflect that philosophy. Very little has dated, their nourishing essence still shines forth. You’ll find interviews with Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, Joseph Campbell, Yoko Ono, Stan Lee of Marvel Comics, Ken Kesey, Paul Bowles, Abbie Hoffman, Mel Blanc of Bugs Bunny & Porky Pig, Chogyam Trunpa Rinpoche, Humphrey Osmond who coined the word “psychedelic,” and lots more. We’ve uncovered 28 programs so far. A rare find is Meatball Fulton’s never-before-aired interview with Syd Barrett of the Pink Floyd. Shiny nuggets indeed. Zeeber Gold! We did our best to make these sound perfect, but due to the age of these tapes, there may be an occasional imperfection.
