ENjoy intelligent downbeat ambient music in the wee hours / OPEN SOURCE MUSIC HOUR every day 5am-6am

Saros

Joerg Huettner founded "Saros" back in 1998 together with DJ Jan Osh as a Goa/Ambient project.

After 8 months of work they already had their first live gig in front of an enthusiastic crowd in December of the same year.

In 1999 first CD compilation releases followed on the German based label "Zoomia".

After Joerg relocated in 1999 he went on solo with "Saros", focusing more and more on ambient and downbeat tracks.

During this time the first album "reaching out to the other world" was released solely on MP3 websites --including MP3.com and peoplesound.com-- garnering many of rave reviews.

In 2001 and 2002 further CD compilation releases followed on "Waldorf Records", the label of the world famous Germany synth company Waldorf, as well as on Ceiba Records, USA, in 2003.

Call your Congressperson today to ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 2060 -The Internet Radio Equality Act. The bill reverses a recent decision of the federal Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) to nearly triple the amount of royalties Internet radio broadcasters pay to copyright holders for playing a song.

Congressman Ron Paul

This interview is now available for download or stream at our Audio link (on the left menu). 

On Friday April 13th, an interview with Congressman Ron Paul of Texas (R) will be aired on Planet Erstwild at 4pm. Paul, who is running for president, will be interviewed by guest host Clyde Cleveland, who himself ran for governor of Iowa as the Libertarian Party candidate in 2002. Reason Magazine interviewed Paul about his presidential bid earlier this year. Asked what issues he would emphasize, Paul responded:

"Everything I’ve talked about for twenty years! I think the biggest thing for Republican primary voters is that most Republicans are turned off right now. They’ve had a beating and are reassessing their values. They have to decide what they believe in. The Republican Party has become about big government conservatism, and Republicans need to hear the message they used to hear: that conservatives are supposed to be for small government."

 Tonight it's a rockin' twofer!! Two live shows for the price of none! Step right up, ladies and gentlepeeps!
