WBAI
FREE MUSIC STORE
1976

This was done for friends and associates at this legendary left-wing radio station. The Free Music Store was famous for all the great musicians they got to play gratis for their devoted audience. The idea was inspired by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band’s “The Intro and the Outro” (“Princess Anne on Sousaphone — Adolf Hitler on Vibes”). I did all the musicians as separate little watercolors, which I then glued in place on the grid, that way I could control the order & color balance. The triangle is being played by Milton Glaser.

Watercolor, Letrafilm, Ink.
