Well, I found the PERFECT SONG to intro the show. It says everything about the "Centripetal Sounds" experience, what I have been working for for the last couple of years. Fun stuff. All the songs Thursday have sneaky little messages built into them, or giant moral themes. Which add up to a way of living. How's that for the FM radio experience??? Captain Beyond, Quicksilver, JA, Savoy Brown, Santana, The Doors, Stevie Wonder, The Sopwith Camel, The Beatles, The Moody Blues, Hendrix, The Dead- whoa, I am getting light headed here...

Charles Mingus
Thinking about bop (da-biddy-boom, da-biddley-biddley-be-boop), big boppers, post-boppers and re-boppers. Some Charlie Parker, some Tadd Dameron, some Thelonious Monk, some Art Blakey, some Max Roach, some Dizzy Gillespie, some Bud Powell, some Miles Davis, some Fats Navarro*, some Charles Mingus and even more. 

No squares, no moldy figs, no haters - just pla(y)in(') jazz...Monday afternoon from 2 until 4 in the cold, February sunlight.

*Have you read Charles Mingus' "Beneath the Underdog" yet? He has many post-mortem conversations with Fats in that unlikely book.

Last week's broadcast was chopped up and re-circulated due to a minor glitch in the matrix.

Thankfully, James Moore (Station Manager extraordinaire), was in the KRUU studio late on a Sunday night and was able to rearrange recovered pieces of the original production; mixing them together LIVE with his deft skill, talent and ability to whisper the words "Obvious World" over and over and over and over while fading bits of music in and out...
If you heard it, you know what I'm talking about. Very groovy stuff - thank you again, James. This week you'll hear the original production, as it was intended to be enjoyed
...beyond the matrix.

patolast thursday i braved the Houston night-life in order to catch a glimpse of Pato Banton live at Fitzgeralds. i had heard an intriguing interview the day before on one of our local college radio stations [ktru] and was immediately inspired. the show reinforced this.

Pato has a smile that is contagious. an energy that is hard to contain in one room. a spiritual center that is entirely ligitimate. he passed my tests.

Pato currently is on tour promoting his Positive Vibrations album with back up band, Mystic Roots- a Chico, Cali. group that is entirely talented in their own rite. they opened the show, fired up the arriving crowd and took it up a notch when Pato stepped out. [several years back Pato had invited Coot- front man and amazing beatboxer- on stage at one of his Cali shows thinking that he was singing all the words to his song. Coot whispered that he was actually singing his own words to the track. that experience led Coot to start his own band- Mystic Roots. at a show several years back, Coot and Pato reconnected and Coot asked if his band could audition for Pato's next tour. Pato was hesitant, but it turned out to be just what he wanted. the rest is history.]
