Jon Krocker
38 Jansky Units (1982)
Duration: 3 minutes

This early new wave classic references the unit of luminous flux used by radio astronomers in measuring electromagnetic raìdiation from space, named for Karl Jansky, the first person to detect radio frequency energy from the Milky Way.

After taking the early Winnipeg film scene by storm writing, directing and creating the soundtrack for 38 Jansky Units, Jon Krocker became an engineer for Boeing. Still into strange electronic music, he recently restored a 1966 250 Ducati motorcycle.
