I don't know where the "Planet News" title comes from, but this is actually the piece entitled, "Witchita Vortex Sutra", from the "opera", Hydrogen Jukebox. The title comes from the poem that Allen Ginsburg read over the piece for piano, the entire performance of which can be found here:

Thank you! Dutchmen come up with some strange titles, it seems.
