Musician and author Ryan Walsh of Hallelujah the Hills joins improvisers Andy Daly, Danielle Schneider, and Matt Besser for this week’s improv4humans! Ryan talks about his book Astral Weeks: A Secret History of 1968, inspiring scenes about a homeschooled music class that goes off the rails, a musical jug salesman, and a U2 imposter band. Later, we’ll hear calls to an LSD support hotline before meeting a couple of disinterested local heroes.

as a big fan of Pierre Henry's Variations Pour Une Porte Et Un Soupir (Variations For A Door And A Sigh), I'm liking where this episode is starting though I think maybe the performers are not so familiar with musique concrete (!). Still loving it though and I am absolutely going to buy this book.

edit: wow this is a really great one

I don't know if it's because of post-truth era disillusionment or Twin Peaks S3, but I'm enjoying this more than I expected.
