The news show of science and reason!
What we have here is this week's Weekly News in Review from harpers.org (and the killradio news team).
This week in the midst of royal weddings and racist birther nonsense, a sigh of frustration at the pointlessness of it all.
I know that every generation has considered itself to be the last (or at least the NEXT to last) and I am not expecting the physical end of the world or anything, but the lack of critical judgment that I see around me, the lack of civility in our dealings with our fellow humans, the sheer stupidity of the entertainment we have dragging us down, the uselessness of religion and (really) of politics, makes this a most lonely and troubled time with no real exits available.
Of course we still have Art, but then we always did, and Art has never stopped things from being horrible.
So I offer the news in hope that you'll get some thought out of it.

The entire Bush Administration belongs in prison for their traitorous anti-Constitutional behavior.

35 minutes, a tribute to new music on Transparency
Transparency is an independent label that I occasionally work with, and I want to share some new music from four fine artists.
Tonight we present the world premiere of two tracks from Alessandra Celletti's latest album, recorded in Rome. It has a working title of Les Enfants du Roi, though that may change. She is one of the great impressionist interpreters of our time, but her original compositions carry, through their interlocking lines and her immaculate timing, a deep emotional charge as well. This is modern classical music at its best.
Space rocker Helios Creed, former member of Chrome and influence on much modern psychedelia, has recorded his first solo album in five years. It's called Galactic Octopi, and we present the premiere of Galactic Center, in a mix that was finished just before being sent to me for this show!
Transparency has had a long association with the music of the master Sun Ra and his Arkestra. Now, in association with Michael D. Anderson, the Arkestra archvist, we present a preview of the upcoming multi-disc box set on the early history of the Saturnian from Birmingham, entitled The Eternal Myth Revealed, Part One. And this is what we get from merely opening the vault -- wait till you hear what's coming next!
Lane Steinberg is one of my favorite modern musical artists. I even devoted an entire Chill Room to him back in 2009. Transparency is about to release the new album by Lane with friend and musical partner Steve Barry and their band Tan Sleeve, and we share a perfect rocker from their album Too Big to Fail.
Setlist: Alessandra Celletti-Crazy Girl Blue / Helios Creed-Galactic Center (H Mix) / Sun Ra Arkestra-preview material from The Eternal Myth Part One with Ra talking of his youth and the Arkestra doing the song Tequila from 1958 / Tan Sleeve-Fading Out / Alessandra Celletti-All Things Shining
With thanks to Michael Shappard, thanks to Alessandra, Helios, Michael Anderson, Lane and Steve. Thanks to my listeners, and to Daniela, to Lux and Aleph.

DJ BoB-E is your host for this special Sendiddy show, dedicated to the life and work of Nathaniel Hale, better known as Nate Dogg. Nate passed away on March 15, 2011 and I did this show the following Saturday, March 19th. This show covers the vast scope of Nate's music, and I have alot of other stuff in here: various artists speaking out on Nate's death; Nate interviews; Nate outtakes; and a rare interview with Warren G who explains how and where the track "Regulators" was recorded and mixed.
This was a show, from the past month, that I lost the first half of. It did not record, so here is part two, of I don't know exactly when, one day when I just played a lot of music anyway. It will have you rockin, timeless and fun, okay?
The show "starts" with a disclaimer, I never mean to intentionally offend, but understand, that I will occasionally use language of an "adult" nature--I never understood that term, because talking like that can be pretty immature, I'll admit that. Anyway, then, I played Rusty Warren, Bounce Your Boobies, maybe just as an example? But then, was You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You, also Rusty.
Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy; By Stinky Weaselteats, but was redeemed, by Spirit In The Sky, the original Norman Greenbaum. Have a warm glass of shut the hell up, and listen to Muddy Waters do I's Be Troubled, also I'm Ready, with Rory Gallegher, then, well, They're Coming To Take Me Away, by who? Napoleon XIV...Limp Bizkit & Incubus; Jump Around,...Linda Ronstadt, Love is a Rose,...Jerry Lee Lewis, Middle Age Crazy; California Sun, done by Dick Dale.
Did a John The Revelator suite then, first by Dig Up Elvis. Yes. Then by the Faith Chorale, then, Son House.
Walkin By Myself, as done by Gary Moore, what a guitarist!

"If we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion by education" ~Thomas Jefferson
"I now have absolute proof that smoking even one marijuana cigarette is equal in brain damage to being on Bikini Island during an H-bomb blast"
"In any civilized society, it is every citizen's responsibility to obey just laws. But at the same time, it is every citizen's responsibility to disobey unjust laws."
~Martin Luther King Jr.
"Reefer makes darkies think they're as good as white men." ~Harry J. Anslinger
"The amount of money and of legal energy being given to prosecute hundreds of thousands of Americans who are caught with a few ounces of marijuana [1 ounce = 28g] in their jeans simply makes no sense - the kindest way to put it. A sterner way to put it is that it is an outrage, an imposition on basic civil liberties and on the reasonable expenditure of social energy."
~William F. Buckley "Legalization of marijuana Long Overdue" Albuquerque Journal June 8, 1993
TAPE 2 | 60 minutes
I don't find this tape that interesting, but maybe you will. It's from one of the same family members as the other recordings as the other tho so I've included it. It's a recording of an old LA radio broadcasts from Michel Jackson, and a woman on air talent that reminds me of Dr. Laura. You can hear the person operating the recorder driving around in a van, opening and closing the doors. Enjoy! --------> Rev. Mook
