Now on the air!
Baron Mind is a brain in a jar in another dimension, employed as an anterior decorator for The Time Being. In this dimension, however, he is Brooke Wilton, now on the progressive music program Virual Noise on KOOP at 91.7 FM in the Austin area and koop.org worldwide, Sunday nights 5:30-7pm CST.
He has been a friend to KOOP since its inception, though he did not officially join until he was recruited in late 2018 to be a part of Virtual Noise. The Baron is a techie, visual artist, and musician who started Flameless Shirt, a clothing line of locally hand-made shirts, as his primary vocation. He founded The East Austin Handmade Arts Market in 2014 to help provide local artists like himself with an arena to bring their goods to the public, and regularly produces events that are a synergy of art and music in the Austin area. The Baron also formed Third Sat From The Sun to create Progressive music events around town. He founded and has produced Surf By Surf East, the largest annual gathering of Surf Rock bands in the US for six years running, and has also organized large and small events for KOOP and Voyager Fest. To this day, he remains at large.
he founded and programmed a weekly internet radio show Radio Musaic
ProgRock! It was comprised of 80 minute sets of uninterrupted
music. Why the 80-minute format? This grew from the fact that Brooke
had been making mix tapes, then CDs for most of his life. For the
last 20 years or so, it had been in CD format, using technology that
let him cross-fade the music selections (which he did minimally so
as to respect the original content). Limitations are good for art,
when used correctly, and the ~80 minute format of what can fit on
a CD had served him well over the years. He made a point of stitching
together the most eclectic of music in a way that flowed smoothly
though all the selections, and so this was what he brought to internet
