we love this time of the rolling year .. here on the Bay rim in Northern Cali, the oxalis popped a few weeks back, they stir up a color riot everywhere, now knee-high in our back yard, along with clovers that grow in poodle-sized puffs ..

the strongest force in our human nature, is thought … so called bad, good, and everything in between ..
so .. we need proper education .. no, not factoried,institutionalized, blandished, partitioned, linear, analytical, rehash that passes for modern education …
we need to e d u c e .. drawing out the invisible to the visible … and connecting the embodied soul, whilst on the earthtop (desktop) to its source in deep inner-outer s p a c i o u s n e s s (ku) .. the imagination engine … through richly informative ex + insperiences ..
some things need to be believed to be seen ..
the “old gods” are as real as anything .. echoed and created … we are superorganic imagination engines, we are not gadgets .. we are not commodities, except in the eyes of crass commercialism ..

My Vision of Peace Photographer – Kimberly Edwards On Mardi Gras Day in New Orleans Big Chief Alfred Doucette debuted his “Peace Suit.” Words of peace were carefully sewed in the Chief’s new Indian Suit in response to the city’s high murder rate and even higher incarceration rate. Alfred Doucette has a true heart for the youth of New Orleans, striving to give them a sense of pride in their culture and in themselves, taking time to share the Mardi Gras Indian traditions with any child who asks or shows interest, and lives his life to make the world a better and more peaceful place. This suit is a tangible image of his soul.
Well .. you are reading this.. we apparently made it though the portended portal/synchronization of 2013 .. so far so good? .. I wouldn’t quiiite yet grab the remote, check-out, and zone-out again via Animal Reality Geographic’s sexi-broody-vampire-penguins (Wanderlust) as a daily junk-media diet … as perhaps the “fat lady” hasn’t yet sung? .. or GabriEL hasn’t yet held that note forever (Bruce Almighty) … or , perhaps they have, and we have undergone some kind of cosmic mitosis .. pa’ delante ..

Media .. including worldOneradio, is only, by definition, “in the middle” .. that noted .. highly recommending “Searching for Sugarman” for a number of reasons from music/lyricism to story to spirit . It features no cast of thousands, nary a car chase, nor gun-wielding-super-model agent, nor floozy .. for that matter .. no rock star hubris! and I suspect you may emerge …elated .. it’s an almost unbelievable real-life story, and its still unfolding….

I can’t exactly apologize for not writing, though I do certainly beg your understanding. I have been utterly taken up in an academic-institutional vortex these past nearly three months, not slackin. Perhaps if you have an urban public school teacher in your life, you have some idea of what the daily challenges can be. By invitation/ conscription, I took on all kinds of new quasi-admin-program managerial responsibilities along with added piles of hours to stay abreast of an daily avalanche of either starry-eyed-and-or-fractious students + mountains of program paperwork and coordination. And for different reasons this was the toughest Fall semester in my teaching career … wilting fatigue and almost unbearable stress/oppression, which made me physically symptomatic, unwell. Got it all done, though not a particularly happy time. Added arrgh.. the national squabble about how to reform public education and the general defamation of the profession, http://www.nea.org/home/53524.htm?utm_source=nea_today_express&utm_medium=email&utm_content=blameteachers&utm_campaign=121114neatodayexpress
This teacher sought solace and some non-linear relief.. the drawing-dreaming pad was swirling and pulsing …
and worldOnelove music/radio sessions were flowing, in some healing/soothing response to the daily grind/carborundum …

Through late summer and autumn, we joined Saturday morning dancers at our beloved Ashkenaz, to banghra dance with Dhol Rhythms (with whom we will be joyously collaborating in both an El Cerrito HS school dance event and in our 15th annual July 4 worldOnefestival). The following Dhol mandala image is by Fletcher Oakeswww.fletcho.com/ .
I want to especially hail UP and acknowledge the San Francisco World Music Festival, in its 13th iteration, successfully assembling musicians form all over the globe in an impossible, and finally glorious and exuberant collaboration in the presentation of a blended operatic cycle www.sfworldmusicfestival.org/. Again demonstrating that the most stirring music, emerges from deeper spaces, requires devotion, discipline and surrender, achieves connection, and reaffirms L I F E … .. from a super-title to a featured Azerbijani folk song .. “with these chains we shall make music which will shame the drums of the monarchs” ..
U.S.A.llawe navigated the fearsome realities/vestiges of Halloween/Samhain … Soul Cakes? anyone ? Mayan prophetic accuracies +/- distortions .. the election of a U.S. President .. no, not by a landslide .. but via inundation … of American angst, media, money, and finally, waters (# 2) … lately .. post-election vitriol and backlash, bitterness, and contrariness, more amped divisiveness .. the oldest trick in the book of life …. a house/nation divided cannot stand …. and how can we be ( seek to be) the “greatest nation on earth”, with a hobbled economy, 14 trillion in debt, millions jailed, and policies/practices that undermine ecology, EDUCATION and simultaneously aspire to world-wide military dominance..
that said .. I felt a palpable bolt of QI when GOBAMA! uttered .. LOVE + CHARITY .. which we remixed.
Especially NOW, we need to work for, and hope for deliverance (McCartney) … wash our spirit clean (Walela)… we need an absolution (The Pyramids) .. and to seek higher ground (Stevie Wonder) .. re-imagine U.S.All .. dreaming red, white, blue, red, gold, and green and all the colors and creatures in between .. seen ? (another Fletcher Oakes image):
And reserving the right to respectfully, unthanks .. unthanksgiving .. it is Native American Heritage Month .. and it’s a particular irony that about the only national holiday that hazily includes some kind of cooperative Native iconography, also includes revisionism of the arc of official hostilities, policies and machinations, between “manifest destiny” and Native Americans. Destiny itself seems to have other ideas, much more consistent with modern ecological science, and the deep cultural wisdoms and spirituality of Native America (what is otherwise commonly called “religion”) and all genuine wisdom/spiritual traditions. Our youth broadcasters generated a series of Native American cultural featurettes, and these are pronounced daily via PA and on-air. We note how virtually whole-scale absent is any substantive Native cultural curriculum in our public schools. In 2012 we seem determined to keep the same idea-factory humming? along (noting the recent tussle in Arizona and elsewhere regarding Chicano studies).
Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds And whose breath gives life to everyone, Hear me.
I come to you as one of your many children; I am weak …. I am small … I need your wisdom and your strength.
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunsets Make my hands respect the things you have made. And make my ears sharp so I may hear your voice.
Make me wise, so that I may understand what you have taught my people and The lessons you have hidden in each leaf and each rock.
I ask for wisdom and strength Not to be superior to my brothers, but to be able to fight my greatest enemy, myself. Make me ever ready to come before you with clean hands and a straight eye. So as life fades away as a fading sunset. My spirit may come to you without shame
~ (translated by Lakota Sioux Chief Yellow Lark @1887)~
Carlos Santana included the prayer above, in the liner notes to Shape Shifter. We simply cannot keep doing, thinking, feeling the material-commodity-transactional-buy-take-day-mares that have become the grist of the daily bs-statusquo-go-round-mill. We’ve got to learn and accept daily, higher, and sacred ground to vibrate at higher frequencies (Blackalicious) … and yes,we can still keeps it fonki .. and real .. the BIG question is .. compared to what?

We received a letter recently which… bust the meter, and shake the tweeter (Erykah B.) .. in excerpt ..
Meanwhile, I’ve been privileged to encounter maybe a little less than half a dozen genuinely great radio stations in life, all across the world, and now I hear what you’re doing. So now I’ve got one more to add to that list.
I’ve just moved from Paris back to the East Bay, and you’re blowing my mind day after day. It’s astonishing. I’m wildly intrigued to learn what it will sound like when the kids are back at school.
We are grateful .. and indeed, we will consider that an on-the-DL “RAMMY” …. and we will invite you to hear wassup at the worldOneradio corral.. daily you can hear Undercurrents, Doug Wendt’s All World Beat/Native Son Rising, Midnight Dread, dj worldOnelove diurnal or contemplative sets, and the rolling cinematic musicscapes of Radio Edsoft Films. We have welcomed a sparkly-eyed and keen minded crop of high-school-aged public radio initiates, and they will be on air within several weeks now .. ready to worldOnerumba ! via via 88.1 Kickin Evolving Conscious Grooves 97.7 !
Along with@ 1O years of archived mixes in daily worldOne broadcast, some lately recent worldOneradio mixology you will hear via our local fm’s, worldOneradio.org. (press play) . or via tune in on your smart phone ..

BRAVO! Please do plan to visit, dine, listen, dance with them when you visit SF.
Back to school season has always been a heavy “compression” for me. perhaps too, an expansion? in that we are re-shaping and extending our QI .. anyway, it’s an energetic and psychic wallop, largely for institutional reasons and how we actually implement same locally and as a society… plenty of room for improvement, eh? Our youth deserve and need so much better and more.. comprehensive education…enriched learning opportunities .. nutrition … arts-music education, genuine cultural connections and early exposure to all kinds of work-in-the-world. The system is shuddering right about now, less funding for a status quo that was already not entirely functional .. it’s all connected .. tight turns and rewiring just ahead .. hang onto your halo ..
What’s life without a merman or a mermaid in your life? ( Discovery Channel’s mocshokdoc excepted) .. blending a few varied inspirations (an octopus, an embrace, and a 50’s aquatic siren postcard) to wit :
Soplando Burbujas de Amor (JL Guerra) …

Q:Like our writer in the excerpt above, I too have had favorite radio stations in my life. You? What makes music important to you ? What is important about music ? Do you have a favorite few radio stations in you life, currently locally or on-line? What makes them “great” ?
