Martian Gardens: Contemporary classical, experimental, electronic, electroacoustic, and esoteric music from around the world. Premiered by Max Shea at WMUA 91.1 FM in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 1999 for the dissemination of non-pop music forms that do not get a platform in commercial and public media. I now produce Martian Gardens weekly from my home studio in Amherst and upload it to radio stations and Internet sites. I chose the name Martian Gardens to evoke the mood of the program. There is the distant and alien, the Martian. There is the home and familiar, the Gardens. If there were gardens on Mars, what would the fauna look like?
